    2020 Thunderbolt

    A couple of interesting things of note on the 2020 T-bolts. 140mm travel front and rear and the fork has a 37mm offset, a whole new spec from the conventional 44mm and 51mm.

    And no BC Edition. Although with 140 front/rear maybe there's no real need I guess, unless they wanted to throw a 36 fork up front perhaps. I do love the colourways, though.

    Im also thinking about buying one to replace my old 5010. Hope there will be some more pictures and reviews of it soon. Interesting with the 37mm offset fork, I thinking of buying the frame and hence have to buy a own fork, not a lot of options for 37mm forks. I would maybe also like a DPX2 instead of a DPS as a rear shock.

    I'm looking at either a Thunderbolt or SC 5010 for my next bike, but the colors on the 2020 Thunderbolt are kinda bleh. I reallllly want to see what the yellowish color looks like other than what's shown on RM's website.

    I like that it is shimano mech. Color selection is limited.

    I know they have to switch up the looks a bit each year, but it's a Rocky - needs more Maple leaves!

    I love my 2019 BC Edition and managed to squeeze 2.8 DHF/DHR on 35mm wheels. I would use 2.6 for the rear next time as the clearance is too tight. Very capable bike for the N Shore.
