    Sirens?

    Do they have any Sirens? I'm not sure if the Siren is out yet.

    Bzzzt. Totally different bike. Angles are more slack on the Preston and the covert is not nearly as burly. If anyone is looking at getting a Preston and you order it from Redstone, you're more than welcome to test ride my large.

    yep they are a little different but not that much and i think the preston is gonna go away in the next two years especially when you hear about they get replaced with bottle rockets if you ever break it

    I'd have to see that first hand before I believed it. They aren't simply sending you a BR as replacement... Trust me.

    Most everyone on a large Preston would be SOL trying to ride a BR as a trail rig.

    Where are you getting your rumors from?

    so the head angle is one degree slacker on the preston but bear in mind that the covert was most likely measured with a 120mm travel fork and the bb on the covert is .45" higher off the ground and it seams like a longer travel fork on the covet would take that to just about the same place and it seams like there is plenty of room for a coil/piggyback in the covert

    Bottle Rockets work great as a trail bike. I use mine as my do all rig. The geometry is spot on for dirt jumping, freeride, and slopestyle. Put the seat up and I can pedal it up hill just fine. I run a full 34-11 in the rear and a single 32 up front and it works just great. Has an 08 55 ETA on the front too so I can put on the ETA put the travel down to climb and still have 30mm of travel. Love it. Might get rid off all of my other bikes, probably not love them too much, but this one could be my only bike

    Uh, they are still drastically different bikes. I say that as someone who has been riding a small Covert for a while now, and am in the process of swapping to a medium Preston... The Covert was measured with a 140mm fork, BTW.

    My Covert with the tallest fork warrantee allows gave me the same head angle as a Preston with it's "average" fork size. Piggyback shock on the Covert? That never has been an issue with it. Been runnning a Swinger 4-way Air on mine the whole time, and most coil shocks wouldn't cause an issue, AFAIK.

    Preston = slacker and burlier overall, with the ability to run things much slacker with a taller fork, all the while preserving your warrantee, and not worrying about the effect on the frame of running too tall a fork. Been there, done that. Preston = much larger tire clearance. I'll be running a taller fork, with slacker overall angles, and my BB height should remain about the same.

    Considered the BR, but it was a bit more beef than I really need. Hell, the Preston is beefier than I need, but it's got the geometry I want, so...

    No idea on the white color. I told dave to surprise me with the color on this one, with preferring brown or white over the green color.

    More of a lateral move. Wanting the ability to run a taller/slacker setup sometimes, without buying another bike meant the Covert wasn't quite the right frame. Shoulda' gotten the Preston in the first place. With a fork that'll give me 140-180mm of travel, without much more weight than I have now, it should be an even better all rounder. All the extra weight looks to be in the frame. Been liking my bikes slacker and slacker, but not really needing huge amounts of travel out here.

    Drastically shorter descents out here, with tighter/twistier stuff the rest of the time. Slack angles, a not sky high BB, but not so high I'm catching on all the rocks and roots, enough beef to handle my hack ass learning to drop and jump a bit more. And the ability to run fatter tires, and still run a taller fork for my once in a while lift day.

    Not if you are tall. Then you're boned, cause the large isn't very large.
