BDawg Edit

I think it’s fair to say that everyone left our last Santa Cruz demo day pretty happy. We had great weather, great bikes and a great ride – and as a result we’ve been asked to put together some very nice bicycles! One of the stand out builds we’ve done from the demo has been Steve’s Bronson CC – specced out with plenty of Hope goodness. This is a seriously nice bike, featuring some of the best kit on the market!

BDawg Brake Edit

This Bronson features a variety of Hope components, including these Tech 3 E4 brakes. The orange anodizing is a pretty close match to the frame decals so it was easy to pick a colour theme. The brakes were given a slightly more detailed finish with black lever lids and bore caps. The bars have been kept nice and neat with Hope’s matchmaker clamp, allowing the brakes and XT shifters to mount on the same clamp. The matchmaker is also available to fit with SRAM shifters.


BDawg Disc Edit

There’s more hope shinyness on the wheels, with orange floating rotors fitted to the Tech Enduro wheels. The black bore caps on the E4 calipers helps to add a little more subtlety to what would otherwise be a very orange part of the bike!


BDawg Hope Edit

It’s not a hope’d up bike without a bolted seat collar. This collar is lucky enough to be holding up a 170mm Rockshox Reverb Stealth. Steve went for a Rockshox spec across the board, with suspension being provided by a 150mm Pike RCT3 paired with a Monarch Debonair Plus shock.

BDawg Drivetrain Edit

Transmission is provided by a Shimano 1x11 drivetrain. The drivetrain features the whopping new 46t cassette – coupled with VPP suspension this bike will be able to climb anything!
