    New Santa Cruz Bronson Bike?

    I just opened the newest Dirt Rag Magazine and on the second or third page it has a new Santa Cruz ad. "And now for something completely different" "April 1st 2013." Does anyone know what this is referring to? i have an order in for a TBLTc, but if something new is coming out... Maybe a 650b?

    I just came here looking for answers to the same question! I guess if we knew then all the suspense leading up to April would be lost.

    The ad says something completely different, so maybe a 'cross bike, or a beach cruiser. :-)

    I wonder if the bike pictured in the ad is the actual bike they are talking about.

    650b doesn't get my attention. For me it's about big wheelers from now on ;-)
    But I am tall and have spindly long legs.

    Nomad 29 - that I'd order in a heartbeat.

    Hey, I resemble that remark! Totally agree. I guess I would like to try riding a 650b at some point, but it would have to be quite amazing to get me off of a 29er at this point. I have forced myself to try and never say never though.

    Yeah, the Tallboy LTC is pretty much what I am drooling over. A bit more wouldnt be too much though.

    I already had Nomad C, BLTc and Tallboy LTC to test (I ride a BLT alu) and I don't think that Santa Cruz need a 650 bike, the Tallboy and LT are fantastic bikes that almost ride in tech narrow trails like the 26" wheels, so for what a 650, it's only markting.

    But let see what are coming, the ad

    I'd guess 650B 5"or 6" travel bike. I'm keen on a 650B Nomad so I'd love to see that.
    Safe riding,

    Im hoping for something built around the 160 34 fork. I think thats really the sweet spot for this wheel size. something like the intense carbine 275. I wonder if it will be badged as a blur or nomad though

    you cant really have a nomad type 29er as the wheelbase would be huge making the bike too slow. 130-140mm seems about the upper limit.

    "something completely different"? Then it will probably be a bike with 26" wheels . . . Nobody is making them any more are they?
