First Ride: Santa Cruz Nomad
Honestly Bronson is the right bike for 85% of the riding population. Its 150mm travel is super capable, and the steeper headangle and longer chainstay will make it a better climber. Plus it comes in alloy and cheaper build kits to negate the "its too expensive" arguments about the Nomad. I predict Bronson will still outsell Nomad. The Tallboy has been their bestseller to date, keep in mind that the MTB market is mainly XC and trail riders. Bronson is plenty of bike for most folks.

If the bike didn't make a difference Sik Mik would've been on a production frame instead of a brand new prototype. Every racer and company are looking for any little advantage they can get. Even the very best racers still need the most cutting edge gear to stay competitive. With things being so tight at the top of the field, you never know what will make the difference. I've been wrenching for and supporting pro dh racers for the last ten years, trust me when I say they are a fickle bunch who need to know that they have the best tool for the job. Even if its just a perceived advantage, the boost in confidence can be the difference between mid pack and top ten.

Video: Sneak Peek of GT's New Sanction
Have you ever ridden an Orange? If you make the connector from the main pivot to the shock mount long enough, you can tune the shock rates to be whatever you want depending on the angle. Draw a line from the rear shock mount to the pivot, then draw a line from the end of the shock body (not the end of the whole shock) to the pivot, as this represents where the travel ends. See how the first line will become parallel with the second right at bottom out? This means a consistently increasing shock rate all the way through the stroke. It will be plush off the top and ramp hard on big hits, and the deeper into the travel you push it the more supportive it will feel. I still think these layouts are some of the best for all-out grip and performance. Glad GT is sticking with it.
