Bronson Carbon 27.5+ S Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz Bicycles' Bronson has undergone a few generations of changes since it first rolled out half a decade ago. It's now longer, slacker, and squishier than its original form, and it incorporates linkage inspiration from the big-hit Nomad to ensure that it's more enduro than trail. It's still a pedal-happy machine, too, so it strikes a fine balance between going up and coming down. The Bronson Carbon 27. 5+ S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike is built up with 2. 6in rubber and a GX Eagle drivetrain, which improves traction on climbs, cushion on terrain, and ensures you always have a spare gear to help you get up grueling climbs. 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 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. These were numbers that you'd only see on a freeride or mini-DH bike just a few years ago, meaning you'll have tons of confidence bombing those technical descents littered with steep drop-offs and nasty rock sections. Another significant change to the latest Bronson lies in a reconfigured VPP suspension platform. Instead of relying on upper-link driven design, the third generation Bronson enjoys the increased bump compliance and glued-to-the-trail traction you'll experienc...

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.
