    Bronson vs Scout V2 in 150mm r/160mm f config

    Bronson is a little too plowy for me, and my interest was piqued by the fact that you can bump up the rear travel on a Scout to 150mm with a longer stroke shock (as mentioned by Transition on the Scout page). Haven't tried it, but seems like the Scout is fun and poppy, at least in the stock configuration, and more my style. Curious if there's any experience or prognostication in how it might do set up with 150mm in the rear and 160mm fork? Running a long-shocked 5010 v2 now, and while I'm sure the Scout at 140mm would probably be smoother, I'm thinking 150mm/160mm would suit me well. Thx!

    Why are you wanting to change from the 5010?

    Feeling like 140-150mm is better travel for what I ride; not necessarily regretful of getting the 5010, but the Bronson V2 (was the current version at the time) would've been the more appropriate fit for the trails I ride (GJ/Fruita/Moab).
