The only "2020" bike to come out in the near future is the Patrol.

Pretty sure sentinel is April

And that is based on.... what exactly? Wishful thinking?

You've already posted several times in this thread asking when new bikes are coming out, when a Sentinel revision is coming, etc. So I have to assume that you have no clue if or when a new Sentinel will be released.

Additionally, multiple people that work for Transition dealers (and are getting info directly from Transition) have stated that Transition is no longer doing model years. That means there are no "2020 bikes." Instead, they are just going to sell bikes, if you like what you see you should buy one. When Transition feels it's time to update the bike, they'll update it. But it does not appear that's going to be on a predictable schedule going forward.

I just wanted to see what others thought. I contacted Transition, and they said a Sentinel would be coming out relatively soon, a local bike shop confirming that as well.

Yeah, but the only thing new is color and build kit. Frame and geo is the same. It's just the 3rd gen of Sentinels.

I think I’ll wait for that, since it’s nearly winter here.

I asked them that exact question and they said no, the frame is 100% the same other than color

Which i found strange since for a while they were telling people you cannot run coils on them....

Huh. There's plenty of Patrol's out there with coils on them, including Transition staff, maybe the graphs didn't translate to the trails this time.
