Bronson Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Beefy gravity bikes are fun -- that is until we've got to pedal them up tedious fire roads to earn the descents, and while we'll argue they've gotten much more pedal-friendly than in years past, it's hard to compete with the versatility of Santa Cruz's all-mountain bruiser -- the Bronson Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame.
