Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
Very different handling. I've demo'd and ordered the Bronson and rode a Spitfire last year. The sagged chainstay length of the Spitfire is much longer than the Bronson. On the Spitfire I had to consciously keep my weight rearward. The Altitude I've been riding this year has much shorter stays sagged, to the point where I need to shift weight forward going into steep corners. The Bronson feels like it splits the difference between the two, I was able to stay centered the whole time I was riding it. This may be different for you based on how you're built, but it's good to keep in mind the differences fc/rc sagged ratio differences.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
I demo'd both. The Ibis handling feels like it has a shorter back-end and longer front end. I suspect this is because at sag the Bronson chainstay length is longer. Seated the cockpit felt longer on the Ibis. Both felt efficient climbing. It's hard for me to compare the suspension or some of the finer handling aspects as I wasn't digging the 2.6/35mm tire/rim combo on the Ibis which made it difficult to differentiate traits I didn't like between the suspension and wheel setup. Overall the geometry of the Bronson felt better to me, in fact the geometry matched my body more perfectly than any bike I've ridden in years and I wound up ordering one. YMMV.

Field Test: Santa Cruz Bronson
Full internal tunnels are not easier than external. With external routing I can pull the brake off and gravity bleed it easily. I can also swap a brake between bikes if one goes down. Derailleur cables sure, but hydraulic lines shouldn't be internally routed.

@nrb251: even if it's not external on the downtube you can just use stick on c-clips. I've done that for a few frames now.

It's easy to bash on an $8k bike; but the aluminum frame is pretty reasonable at $2k.

Poll says pick all that apply, but it's using radio selects instead of checkboxes (can only pick one)
