    Hope How long will it take to order a Bronson?

    In the same shop
    two stuff give me different answers,
    one says 1 week
    the other says 2 or 3 week...
    and I heard that the Bronson is in shortage, many want for a month to get one...
    I just want to know how long you guys waited to get a Bronson.

    Do you want Alloy or Carbon?

    Alloy Bronson's are a few weeks out, carbon maybe a week or two later

    Wen I ordered my blur I waited 4 weeks because I did not want any of the colors that were available right away (just wanted black, nothing special.). In reality what is the difference between one week and one month if it is the right bike and you will own it for years?

    honestly, if you want a Bronson within a week or 2, your best bet is to either try to find a shop that has one in stock, or order from an online site that has them in stock. ordering a build from your LBS, who will then have to order it from SC, is almost guaranteed to take longer than what they originally quote you.

    I have a brand new large carbon Bronson frame for sale and and/or can build with a complete 2x10 XT kit, both for considerably less than retail.

    Today I asked the store manager, he called the SC and SC said that the Bronson will be available in late july and now is out of stock

    Such a waste! There is no place in HK to play the Bronson, I have been to HK three times, all I can find are some bike path.

    Visited again Flying Ball HKG and there were 6 boxes of Bronson built-bikes with the XT Kits.....My friend at Flying Ball said that they pre-ordered them very early...

    I wanted the carbon but since that was a long wait I pulled the trigger on alloy. With that in mind, as soon as carbon becomes available again in August I'm probably doing a frame swap.

    But till then I've got a radical bike to ride. And yes, it is very much worth the wait.
