Peaty navigating his Bronson on the dual slalom course
The Bronson is Santa Cruz’s first attempt at a 650b wheeled bike and it has gotten a lot of attention. Check out some detailed pictures and a video inside.
Steve Peat navigated his Bronson on the Sea Otter Classic dual slalom race to a 2nd place which is no small feat. Cedric Gracia raced the Sea Otter ‘downhill’ on his. The Bronson is the first 27.5/650b wheel’d Santa Cruz and it’s clearly a versatile bike.
