    No more BS?

    After a fair amount of deliberation I decided that I wanted a new Blindside frame. I had my LBS call Transition to place an order for a Large Blindside and they were told that there are no more Large Blindsides, ever. (though they had smalls and mediums still in stock) Sounds like Transition is discontinuing the frame, bummer.

    Id love a TR250, but in no way can afford the additional $1000 msrp for that bike. The blindside was one of the only affordable freeride frames still in production. It seems like almost every decent mtb company out there has stoped making an affordable Freeride/ DH rig, that is sold as a frame only at least.

    Maybe the new 29r is going to be taking it's place. Just a wild guess.

    Why not check with other dealers?

    Call Matt at North Shore Bike Shop, he might have a large in stock still.

    I know Matt has a couple Blindsides, though not sure what sizes. What about a Banshee Scythe? Similar price and spec to the Blindside...

    Think that means BR's are next on the chopping block? Could be some new fr frames on the horizon.

    Hope that's the case, unfortunately the trend seems to be cutting rather than adding to the fr bikes these days.
    I personally would be interested in a carbon, sexed up fr bike to take the place of the BS. Like a blend between the new covert and the 250. Designed to jump, and rip at the bike parks but still climb occasionally.

    I talked to Matt. He has the last Large coming to the shop. If you are serious about getting it give him a call.
