The 2022 Santa Cruz Bronson CC XO1 AXS - Sept. 16, 2021, 10:57 a.m.

Surely it's not true that only a limited number of people want a full 27.5 bike? Anecdotally 0 people in my riding group are interested in full 29ers even after demoing, and have only a passing interest in mullets if they handle like 29ers.

This review doesn't help people like us decide if we'd like the bike as there's no comparison to the previous Bronson, which is fair if you've never ridden it, but it's disappointing regardless.

It certainly does. I was recommended it for my first time on the shore. I can ride everything on map in Whistler OK, so wasn't expecting to be humbled quite so badly. It's been a while since I walked and crashed my way down a trail quite so badly.

I'm bringing my bike - an actual pedal powered bike.

I'm bringing my ebike - Not a pedal powered bike. 

Pretty easy. If you told me you're bring your bike and you showed up on the ebike I'd be riding on my own.

I run cushcore and the SRAM folk reckoned you didn't need them with these wheels due to the design. I'd love to take their word on that, but it's a big ask when you're paying so much for the rims.

Ah, gotcha. Can't say too many of the trails I ride have corners like that on, so it's a bit of a muchness for me personally.

I gave these a go the same weekend, took them for a rip down Crazy Train and Hey Bud. I didn't notice the rear losing traction before the front, but I only weigh 140lbs. They felt nimble and tracked better than my current E13 TRS wheels. Comfy for sure. Hard for me to give any insight into how much better or worse they are than any other carbon wheels though I've not ridden any other.
