For about a year now I have been riding a diamond back hard tail and I used to think it was the best ride ever until I walked into bicycle warehouse Carmel mountain. As soon as I walked into the shop I was approached by Matt, we started talking about local trails and how often I rode them and then we got on the topic of what I was riding. I don't think I've ever met someone with so much enthusiasm and knowledge about MTB as he was. He introduced me to the Bronson C s-kit and just filled my head with amazing facts/knowledge of this amazing bike. Next thing I knew, I was walking back into the shop a couple weeks later to purchase one. The first ride on this beauty was unbelievable, I truly appreciate the time he took out of his day to give he best knowledge of the bike that he could. If it wasn't for that I may have never made the jump from my DB hard tail to the Santa Cruz Bronson!
