Field Test: Santa Cruz Bronson
It's very, very simple - guys who have ridden much more bikes than you an me simply give you a hint - a 29er can be a better allmountain bike than a 27.5. If you don't want this advise - ignore it. Anyway, it is up to you to decide which pros and cons matter for you in any review, this one is no different.

They are right. If SC would make alu bikes, they would have it already, but since they have to start with carbon premium, we will have to wait one more year... I would like an SC since there is a great distributor in Poland, but they simply do not have what I am looking for, Nomad is cool, but I just want a 29er (with a water bottle mount, so no Capra for me).

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
@secretninjaguy: This is North America vs Europe thing. In Europe e-bikes are ubiquitous, much more than e.g. Fatbikes have ever been. This is something to stay. Think about it - ride uphill without being tired, don't know many people who would resist that ... Where e-bikes suck is going down technical trails, especially when you need to bunnyhop, pop from small lips etc. but you know what? Most people do not ride those trails. So you have something easy appealing to inexperienced riders vs something which has advantage for experienced riders wich are in minority. Guess which option wins? The easy option for majority always wins because majority has more money, simple as that.

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
@CaptainSnappy: The fact that something is dificult and expensive to manufacture does not mean that it makes sense. I bet you can make even mre expensive casette from some aorospace-grade material, and so what? Maybe it makes sense for an e-bike, but for normal bikes? For this sh*t I can buy like 7 11-46 casettes! I mean, robust components make sens, but in 7 years i might not be able to use this casette on a new bike anyway.

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
@brianpark: I think there will be premium products like EX1 and heavy as f*k products for "cheap" e-bikes. Nothing moderately priced with decent weight i.e. aluminium large cog. Because e-bike market is different, e-bike are heavy by design, so there is really no point in light e-bike specific casette except for a premium market (ie.I am a "dentist", so I will by a bike priced like a medium-class car, because, well, capitalism).

Exactly my toughts, EX1 is pointless because its price. It costs 350 EUR, for an 8-speed casette, a BIG WTF. And most probably mainly because it is labeled e-bike specific, and since e-bike are generally expensive, customer will pay premium also for drivetrain.

Last Launches the 29" Aluminium Glen Trail Bike
@Lookinforit: Sorry, but Knolly is a 4-Bar and this is a linkage-driven Monopivot. Not trying to say one is better that another, just that they only look simlar. Owning a Knolly I can say that I would prefer a monopivot done right (this one seems so) than a 4-bar with flex and huge tolerances throughout.
