    looks sweet. (even though it just looks like a cross between an LTc and TRc). 1X11 standard?

    20 YEARS IN THE MAKING
    Two decades of evolution at Santa Cruz brought us here. An entirely new frame, new wheel size and new perspective on what a 6" travel bike can conquer.

    Bronson is not some rehashed 27.5" tribute act to anything else in our range. It stands alone as testament to the years of designing and refining at our old Bronson Street facility.

    Locked up for months of secret testing, Bronson breaks straight onto the scene as the Syndicate's race bike for their Enduro World Series campaign.

    From Tazmon to Bronson... Santa Cruz continues to lead each new era in mountain bike design.

    - 27.5" (650b) wheels
    - 142 mm rear axle spacing.
    - New molded rubber swingarm and downtube protectors.
    - 2 x bottle cage mounts.
    - Forged upper link.
    - Forged aluminum lower link with angled grease ports: offset for chainguide clearance.
    - Collet axle pivots: lock in place without pinch bolts.
    - Angular contact bearings: all pivots.
    - Direct mount rear derailleur hanger option: standard hanger comes as stock.
    - Full carbon dropouts and disk mounts.
    - Co-molded aluminum hardware on frame pivots: no bonding.
    - Carbon ISCG-05 tabs.
    - Routing for Reverb Stealth.
    - 73mm threaded BB: creak-free riding and easy installation.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    I wonder if this solves the circular crack on the drive side lower pivot?
    Hopefully.

    Looks like XX1 with a chainguide. I though XX1 didn't need a chainguide.

    The bottom bracket looks pretty high, doesn't it? This would be a departure from the really low BB on the TB and TR.

    Anyone know the chainstay length?

    Really something completely new even in the colors if you forget about Ýbis, transition, Commecal,...

    Looks fun but is that a 32? (Sorry on my phone so can't see) If so, shouldn't it have the 34 160?

    Yes it's different... Completely? Sort of.......
    Was hoping for some Nomad makeover/replacement or even a 29er Nomad to complete tb range and compete with enduro29.
    But like so many started saying early this year, it would be a 650b/150 travel.
    at shops when?

    Ok so you just kill two models with only one. SC strategy should be better them that.
    Also seems strange to me to release a new model with colors in the Carbon version so similar to the TBLTc.
    Not disapointed yet just because SC is saving something really diferent just for me.

    I think the only thing new here is that Santa Cruz isn't 5 years late to the party.
    I am immune to your disdain.

    So pretty interesting, it's a different beast but similar to what they've done really welly. Neo Blur LT/Nomad with the unknown (to me at least) 650 voodoo. The wheelbase, 67 head angle and low BB should make this thing a fiend heading down. Will be interesting how this bike will climb but I wonder if thinking about that tells me this ain't my bike Still, its low weight and room for bottle in the main tri tempts for light burly trail goodness. I like a bike that climbs as well as it descends. Looking forward to a demo regardless


    would be cool to see a purpose built 650 TRc or a TB TRc

    Good looking bike. I just compared the geometry above to the data on Intense's website for the 27.5 Carbine and it's basically the same bike, only differences are Bronson has 1/2" longer wheelbase, 1/4" longer chainstay. Everything else is the same, or nearly the same. I've ridden the Carbine 27.5 and it's a great bike. I'm sure this will be awesome as well.
