    Anyone seen this new Transition FS DJ bike?

    For anyone who gets the Transition newsletter, and for those of you who don't, transitions got 2 new bikes coming out. Apparently theyre going to release them at the EuroBike expo, but I was curious to see pics of this new fully dj bike. heres hte full e-mail:
    "It's true, we're heading off to Europe! We will be showing off our totally new 2007 product line this year at the EuroBike expo in Friedrichshafen Germany. Kyle and Kevin are going a week early to hit up some of the bike parks in Switzerland then we'll be off to the show from August 31st to September 4th. We will be unveiling two new bikes at the show including our 5.5" travel all-mountain trail bike called the Covert and our new 3.5" travel dirt jump full suspension bike called the Double. All of the existing models will be on display as well and we have some very nice looking updates to many of the bikes, so there will be a ton to check out. Our booth number is B4-509 so if you find yourself in Germany please do stop by and check out the new products."

    you already have. its called a preston.

    this is probably just an updated version, maybe something with a different suspension design. it'll probably phase the preston out.

    either way I look forward to all their bikes.

    IMO, it sounds like a smart idea to have a short travel bike that can take the abuse of dj. most short travel fs bikes are not designed to take big air.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    glad to hear that you survived the testing.

    I am a little curious what rear shock it would use.

    Yeah, the Covert is going to be a totally different bike. The Double is super sweet too exactly like a ToP with travel, and the frames are in sweet colors. Which of course is almost as important as how they ride...

    Wow...you come up with that on you own...sigh...if you have not figured out that by now then you are a mental midget....it just happens to be the ammount of travel I feel is perfect for a bike, so I am excited to see any new bikes in that travel range.

    I really dont consider the preston as burly in comparrison to the rest of the transition line.

    Is a DJ FS basically the same as a 4x FS, or does the geometry differ much?

    I think of them as BMX dirt jump freestyle bikes VS BMX race bikes. Similiar, but different.
