      Looks like the boys at TBC are finally ready to enter the DH race scene. It is definitely more DH than my Blindside. It looks a bit long in the picture for my taste, but in the vid, it looks just about right.

      Just get the frame and put your old parts on it. Transistions love old parts. Besides you have about 6 months to save up.

      If i squint my eyes i am telling you it looks the same as the Flatline Pro from Rocky Mountain.

      What do you all think??

      Besides this is what i am considering for my gravity bike.

      I think the linkage on TBC is simpler. The straighter seat tube angle on the Flatline would probably make it a better pedaller.

      The Flatline would be more comparable to the Blindside. Blindsides are going for about 1600USD while the Rockies are going for close to 22. I don’t see 600 extra bones on that Rockie.

      Don’t get me wrong, I would get a Rockie long before many more ballyhooed frames. I’ll just take the dough I save on Tranny and spend it on better parts or invest it in good trip.

      Gearing up for a trip to Diablo right now.
