My wife is looking at getting a new bike, and she's considering something like the Bronson to replace both her Nomad and current xc bike. She loves her Nomad and will ride it everywhere, but the geometry and pedalling efficiency aren't ideal in a race situation. The angles give her a lot of confidence on more technical terrain and she doesn't want to loose this, which is why she has the 2 bikes at present.
From what I understand, the Bronson is almost the 27.5 version of the Nomad, but potentially leans slightly more to the xc side of things. For those who have ridden it, could the Bronson hold its own at the odd xc/endurance event, maybe even with an adjustable fork to lower the front end (would this even be needed?)? Would my wife still have the feeling of confidence while riding the Bronson on steeper/more technical terrain like she does on her Nomad? She said in the past that she'd never sell her Nomad, but if there is a bike that gives her as much confidence going down while also holding its own pedalling wise, she may change her mind. She'd build it up fairly light weight with carbon wheels.
The Solo would be great but wouldn't give her the ride she's looking for on the odd bike park day.
