im gonna piggyback the sentiment and verify that ike and tina turner would best describe my relationship with the bronson that i own, and its still rollin on a river while i thunderdome my fat ass down hills aplenty.
mtn bikes are very well made. at least the ones ive seen.

my wife owns a trek remedy and its an awesome bike.

My brother is on a new Bronson. Also a great bike. Things been great for him. Got it like 2 months ago but it’s got a boatload if miles in it. He rides 4-5 days a week sometimes twice a day. 230 pound dude. Only upgrade was me giving him my old transfer post. His was a pos that dropped an inch when he sat on it.... from day 1.

Only issue I’ve seen is with the aluminum Trek. Friend here had a Remedy. Pulled it off the tailgate pad after a day of shuttling and there was tiny little dents in the down tube. Another local guy had the down tube actually fold a little on the tailgate pad. The aluminum is obviously very thin in that area.
But hey, they sure are light!
I’m sure the carbon ones are fine.

Crisco definitely do the steel HT thing, HT’s can be so much fun. However skip the plus tires. I went plus on my old HT originally. Fun for monster trucking everything but the side walls just fold to easy when you hammer it into corners. AKA: ride aggressively.
Go 2.6” max and call her done.
That said I have a set of 2.8 HRII’s I used for the plus experiment and snow riding hanging in the shed. I no longer use them. Unless Jerome still wants them for his E-bike.

I am taking the "trail bike plunge". But only because my good friends at Marin are really really really good to me. An enduro rig suits my needs for sure but I am hopeful that the new bike will be just as fun. I am also looking super hard at a steel hard tail with plus tires. I am thinking super fun and very practical for coaching.

You're a man of Marin, since that's the case I can recommend a Pine Mtn 2. I have one (previous generation) and it's a sweet

Sorry. Phone is messing with me. The 2020 Marin Pine mtn 1 looks pretty rad!

this country is so f*cking full of pussies.
i dont like Don Cherrys approach to hockey and his theatricality never appealed to me. but cancel culture has become so weaponized that no one is safe to express their freedom of speech.
not that Canadians enjoy that right of course...

I agree with free speech, but if I was the one signing Don Cherrys pay cheques, I would have stopped long ago.

Isn't it interesting that we live in a time when our TV personalities are held to a higher standard than our Prime Minister?
