Bronson 27.5+ R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Bronson was first released back in a time when 27. 5-inch wheels were a new uncertainty, and bike companies were still trying to figure out what combination of suspension travel and geometry made up a good all-mountain bike. The first generation Bronson was about as good as it got at the time, capable of tackling everywhere from lengthy rides in the mountains to enduro race courses and even blasting some laps at the local bike park. Santa Cruz has been improving upon the model ever since, making it a bit more aggressive and capable with each iteration. Now in it's third generation, the Bronson 27. 5+ R Complete Mountain Bike comes equipped with lower-link-driven VPP suspension that improves small-bump sensitivity and big-hit support, a longer, more aggressive geometry that improves stability and confidence on high speed trails, and increased frame clearance so you can run up to 2. 8in tires. Despite these gravity-focused changes, the Bronson retains the impressive pedaling performance and all-around versatility that make it a solid choice for epic all-day rides on unfamiliar terrain. One of the biggest changes to the third-gen Bronson lies in a longer, slacker geometry that pushes it deeper into the gravity end of the riding spectrum. However, this redesign doesn't significantly alter its all-around versatility, meaning it's still great for the rider that desires the monster truck plushness of a slack, long-travel rig while having fun on trail systems with big climbs and high-speed descents. To be specific, Santa Cruz lengthened the reach by approximately 15 millimeters per size for a more confident, comfortable feel at higher speeds, plus a one centimeter lower standover height for a better fit with shorter riders. The head tube angle drops from the previous generation's already slack 66 degrees to an even slacker 65. 4 degrees in its highest setting, complete with a flip-chip that slackens it out even further to a bike park-friendly 65. 1 degrees.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
