Bronson 2.0 Alloy Frame - 2017 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
While 2016's 2. 0 reboot made the Bronson leaner, meaner, and even more capable than its 1. 0 predecessor, those of us with less than unlimited finances were still left to dream of a day when we could afford to add one of those beautiful machines to our stable. Fortunately, Santa Cruz marks 2017 with the release of the Bronson 2. 0 Alloy Frame, which features that same much-loved geometry found in its high-cost carbon fiber kin and a much more attainable price point that looks to see even more Bronsons headed to the dirt.

Compared to the 1. 0 version, the Bronson 2. 0's seat tube gets steeper by almost a full degree for better positioning over the cranks. The revised geometry keeps you on top of the pedal stroke, and relocated links allow for a shorter chainstay, which makes for more efficient power transfer.

Despite its slacker head tube and longer geometry, the back end configuration helps the Bronson 2. 0 pop over cruxes and maintain speed across hard pack. The VPP suspension system represents the latest update to Santa Cruz's classic VPP. Where the old suspension curve...

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
