    Thoughts on used 2015 Bronson?

    Hi guys -

    I have a chance to pickup a used S.C. Bronson locally and wanted to get you alls thoughts on it.

    Itís a 2015 alloy and has a lot of upgrades, but has been noticeably ridden hard through his commentary and the cosmetic nicks and dings on the frame and fork. Owner is original purchaser has done all service himself - walked me thru it and is very knowledgeable.

    Here is the link to it: https://charlotte.craigslist.org/bik...408889880.html

    Would you all be hesitant to buy a used Bronson? Itís more bike than I will prob ever need - Iím an intermediate rider and go out once a week for fun and excercise. I took it for a brief ride and I think Iíd enjoy it - and itís within my budget (11 month old twins at home). Iím currently on a 2011 29er so this would be a big change!

    I have to let the seller know this evening so any input is welcome!

    From the photos it looks pretty good.

    If I were in your shoes this is what would be running through my head:

    Pro - Bronson is a beast
    Pro - complete bike so you can wheel and deal parts down the road
    Pro - frame has possibilities and life for quite a while
    Pro - if you end up hating it you can flip it for what you paid for it without much trouble

    Con - buying complete bike vs frame and adding parts you like/prefer
    Con - ???

    If you hop over to say Pinkbike and look at Bronson aluminum frames and complete bikes you can figure out if you are getting a good deal or not.

    A quick eyeball on my part shows that the price seems pretty fair.
