    Sweet man. Recently uploaded my Rune, check it out! Im the So.Cal. guy that bought your Fox fork on Pinkbike. Thinking of a new frame, choices in order are the new Norco Range carbon, Knolly Warden and the Bronson. After some time on the frame, how do you rate it?

    The Bronson has been great. It climbs great and descends great. It's plently light but still capable DH.

    Are you replacing your Mojo HD with this?

    Is it a 26" fork?
    Does it turn clearly under the down tube?
    It looks very composed, and the only thing that can change the WB is the fork setup!!!

    out of interest, whats the BB height with 26" wheels? was thinking of doing the same thing until I can afford to shell out on new rims

    uh wouldnt it be .75 lower

    But on the internet they said it also makes the chainsstays too long. SO the wheelbase could be off. And thats when you have an offset fork or the angelcups.

    Arent the chainstays similar length to what the nomad is? would be interesting to see how it compares with the 27.5 wheels in it

    Nice modification! Was the Works Components headset the only necessary conversion?

    When it says your headset is -1.5, does it mean you slackened your HA by 1.5˚?

    Correction: "Additional info:" 27.5 inch Bronson

    no, those are 26'' wheels

  • Tsetse

    4/29/2013 8:20 AM

    It's actually 27.5"

  • tbox

    4/29/2013 8:44 AM

    No, b-kul is right the bronson is normally 650b but the owner of this bike is running 26" wheels instead.
