Excellent Condition

The most visible upgrade to the new Bronson is the completely new VPP® link arrangement.  The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts.  Meanwhile the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top-tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke.

Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk.  The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor

 

BIKE CONDITION

Excellent condition, super clean, shows very minor use/wear. Mechanically perfect, rides (and looks) like new.

Frame has no dents, cracks, or any other carbon damage.

Suspension has been inspected and tested and is in perfect condition with no leaks and all adjustments working properly. No scratches on fork stanchions.

Wheels are straight with no hops and no dents in the rims.

The entire bike was just given a full tune up by a professional bike mechanic and everything has been inspected and adjusted. Shifting is precise, the hydraulic brakes are bled and adjusted, and it is clean, tuned, and 100% ready to ride.

Tires: Excellent

Grips: Excellent

Brake Pads: Excellent

Saddle: Excellent, no tears
