    The GranMal is nice especially the adj shock thats a great feature I wish the BS had that setup.. I was looking for a GranMal but couldnt find one, rode my buddies Bottlerocket and the loved the way it felt loved the frame.... So since the BS is a bigger version of the Bottle basically I ordered a Blindside but I also have a Preston so what I mean if I was gonna just get one bike I would go with the GranMal cause I would just adj to the style riding I was gonna do... Here is my babies...

    Is the blindside replacing the Granmal? Yeah it did already but you can still get some Granmal out there , but yeah they replaced due to sizing issues and other stuff... Or did you mean is the Blindside replacing my Preston... Cause i talked my wife into letting me keep both...

    Yeah I hear ya its a real nice option to be able to adj the rear shock like that, some guy i work with got the Perp which has that setup.. But I really like the Blindside frame, the stand over height is lower like I said if you have ridden a Bottle it feels really nice and the BS is just a bigger BR.. Unless you got a real nice deal on a GM I would go with a BS there new and bling you know.... Really its a kickass frame..

    the gran mal always had too long of a rear end...the blindside looks shorter, so i like it more look wise...but riding the granmal is loads of fun to ride.
