2016 Santa Cruz Bronson CC X01

I rode the 2016 Santa Cruz Bronson CC X01 with Enve 60 wheels during a fantastic Santa Cruz demo day thanks to Bicycle Emporium in Auburn.


I normally ride a Yeti SB66 carbon and this bike felt like it was a notch above my Yeti – and the other demo bikes I’ve ridden recently.

I don’t know if it was the perfect combination of the carbon wheels, dropper post, tires, fork and shot, but DAMN it felt fine. The only thing I would change about this bike is the color. I’ve ridden a bland black bike for the past few years and I’m ready to get loud.

I rode the Foresthill Divide Loop, a fantastic trail system in Auburn. Here’s my ride on Strava.
