Described by Transition as a "big all-mountain bike", the new Blindside is a 7.6lbs frame (taking a pound off the weight of the older frame); and designed around 170mm/190mm travel. Although more pedal friendly it is clearly designed to be able to take big hits. The 2010 Blindside is a refined, well-thought-out bike & will probably go a long way to expanding Transition's fan-base beyond its traditional Pacific NW following.

Both the red and the yellow frame graphics are clear coated over for durability and a clean look. The white frame has removable decals, with extras included so riders can really customize their setup. There may be some aftermarket TR450 decal kits sold by 3rd party companies, so the white frame is a great blank canvas.

I've been to Blackrock a couple times now and every time there is always some form of new trail construction and extensive buffing of the existing trails. The trail network is large enough to support a full day worth of riding, mainly due to the fact that you have to pedal your feet to get yourself up the hill. To say that this trip was a bit different than my others is a vast understatement.

The new Covert sports a refined frame at the same weight as the old model, but is significantly stronger. The new frame comes in at a respectable 6.7 lbs without rear shock, and builds up to a 28-32 lb bike made for efficient long days in the saddle.

Transition Bike's TransAm Review Transition Bike's TransAm Review
"In the woods this bike is like a Swiss Army knife with only one tool, and it just so happens that that tool fits nearly everything."

What has dual 26" wheels and requires no more than a bit of chain lube for a full tune up? If you're thinking a singlespeed hardtail, you're right on the money. For years I've knocked singlespeeds for mountain biking anywhere that has fast trails with steep climbs and descents. I've watched good riders painfully struggle on climbs only to spin out and slow down when the trail points downhill, so I always questioned the point of it. To my surprise this bike has it's place, which just so happens to be the tight, technical trails in my backyard, which are so wet 6 months out of the year that I find myself picking rocks out of the corners of my eyes at dinner two nights later.

Transition Bikes Introduces the new Bank Hardtail Transition Bikes Introduces the new Bank Hardtail
The latest offering from Transition Bikes is the new alloy Bank hardtail. The Bank represents the evolution of alloy hardtails in a superlight package that is worthy of almost any style of riding. The Bank is skilled at dirt jumping, 4X, Dual Slalom and overall trail shredding. At 4.9lbs it is definitely not a freeride hardtail but in the hands of a skilled rider it can handle almost any type of riding.

Casey and Carl's Trip to Cali - Day 4 - Final Day Casey and Carl's Trip to Cali - Day 4 - Final Day
The fourth and final day in California took us on a wild ride. Instead of going out and hitting the Skate Park or riding dirt jumps, we went surfing! Isaac brought out a couple of his surfboards to let us give it a go. What I didn’t know was that Isaac is a pro surfer! How awesome is that, the first time we were learning to surf was being taught by a pro.

I grabbed the board and headed out first.

Casey and Carl's Trip to Cali - Day 3 Casey and Carl's Trip to Cali - Day 3
It has been a great trip so far and today wouldn’t have been a better riding day. The sun was shining and the bikes were rolling. Since yesterday we rode Skate Park, today we really wanted to ride some dirt. We headed over to National City to ride a local spot. The jumps were really cool, but they were really complicated. They went like long gap to short gap to shorter gap and just messed you up. They were really tiring as well. I took a break for 5 minutes and then grabbed my bike and both tires blew up, I was like WHAT THE &#$%! Not again! We were about to head to a bike shop to get them fixed when Chris saved me…again! He pulled out two tubes from his truck and once again, Chris thanks a lot man!

Casey and Carl's Cali Trip - Day 2 Casey and Carl's Cali Trip - Day 2
All right, so today started of really rad. Woke up early and found out that the jam didn’t start till 2pm. So Carl and I drove around San Diego and found a couple sick skate parks. Instead of being bums and chilling at our hotel, we decided to hit the beach for some photos. Then I decided I wanted to go swimming, so I went back to our rental car (yea we got a PT Cruiser) to change into my shorts.

I'm heading to California with Carl from Transition bikes and we'll be keeping you posted all week:

My First Visit to Transition Bicycle Co My First Visit to Transition Bicycle Co
This past weekend I lost my virginity and crossed the border. I never thought the United States would be so different than Canada.

I just got my L, so I wanted to drive across the border to see the crew at Transition Bikes. I totally had a brain fart and forgot that in the US you drive by miles per hour not kilometers per hour, so when we started to drive I was going about 80km and out of the corner of my eye I saw the speed limit sign and it read 50. Therefore I was like "Ah Crap! I don't want to get pulled over my first time in the states with my L". My Dad and Tyler just laughed at me. This would be one of the many things I learned on this trip.

Transition Days part 2 Transition Days part 2
The crew at Transition Bikes love to ride what they build and it was evident that they ride a lot by the way they charged on all the rides we did. The bikes they build are built to get out there and ride hard on, because that's what they do on them. Both days were filled with lots of riding and information on the company.

Here's a look at some new models coming out soon:

Transition Days part 1 Transition Days part 1
A few days ago I had the pleasure of attending Transition Bike Days down in Ferndale Washington. Transition is having two showings for their dealers and invited media to go over the changes that will be coming up in their model runs. That and to show everyone that they ride the bikes they make and the local trails that they ride those bikes on.

Here is my first update from Transition Days:

Transition Syren - Trail Tested Review Transition Syren - Trail Tested Review
Source: Ian Millar

Once again the folks in Ferndale Washington have broken the mold on bicycle design. Transition Bikes latest hit comes in the form of a female specific freeride frame titled the Syren. So how does Transition define a freeride female specific bike? Simply by building a bike with the help of 30 female rippers based on the current trends they are seeing in all-mountain fun. A bike designed for bike parks, local trail networks and of course epic singletrack.

Mike Kinrade Signs with Transition Bikes Mike Kinrade Signs with Transition Bikes
Ferndale, WA – June 16th 2008 -- Nelson BC native and freeride pioneer Mike Kinrade sings on with Transition Bikes for the 2008 Season. Kinrade is known for his big mountain riding and ability to build lines in the most remote and unique regions in North America. Known for his go big style, Kinrade is a veteran of all 4 Redbull Rampage contests and co-producer and rider in the video series "Stund". "Mike was a great fit for Transition and has one of the best work ethics in the industry. He also builds his own lines for movies and photo shoots which in my mind is one of the greatest assets a pro rider can have today. When you look at one of Mike's photos or videos shot in the high alpine in some of the most beautiful places in the world you can't help but get inspired to do the same, says Kevin Menard owner of Transition Bikes."

A girl, her new Transition Syren, & Kamloops Bike Camp A girl, her new Transition Syren, & Kamloops Bike Camp
Mountain biking can be a tough sport for female riders to break into. We talk about progression, riding, coaching, and how things are changing for female riders.

Nicky is like many female riders - she got into mountain biking through her husband. However, in three seasons, she's gone from a timid noob who hadn't ridden a bike for twenty years to a confident intermediate rider. She knows what terrain she likes to ride, and now has that passion for mountain biking we can all relate to. Weekends are planned well in advance - who to ride with, and where. There's no time for long lazy days at the spa, a makeover, or shopping. It's all about riding the dirt, rock and gnar.

B-Rocket 99 Rocking the Valley -Transition's Bottle Rocket Build B-Rocket 99 Rocking the Valley -Transition's Bottle Rocket Build
My idle hands have been itching for a build up again, so that is what I did. Since I am in no position to drop a lot of dough on a new bike, I decided to take my parts that were on my hard tail that isn't going to see any use this winter and look at squishy frame options to swap the parts to for a winter Vedder machine. I was looking for a short travel frame that was front derailleur capable, would accept a 135x10mm rear wheel and handle a 6" single crown fork all while stoking me out during this fall/winter riding season that is upon us.

For 2006 Transition Bikes introduced a few new models to their line up of bikes. The Gran Mal, with up to 8.7 inches of rear travel, is a great addition to their already stellar line up. You can tell these guys ride hard because this bike is made to take any punishment you can dish out. I did a lot of free riding and racing on the Gran Mal the season and it loved to get beat up and keep coming back for more. Here's the run down of my Gran Mal and a video from the folks at Transition:

Transition Bikes New Prototype Redefines Freeriding Transition Bikes New Prototype Redefines Freeriding
Rider owned bike company, Transition Bikes announces their new prototype frame called the BottleRocket. Designed for the new evolution of freeriding, the BottleRocket is all about flow and style while riding. The progression of trail building has changed dramatically in the last few years. Long gone are the days of building trails with seven foot drops to flats and ultra steep fall line trails where you lock your brakes up the entire way down. Trails are starting to look more like big mountain slopestyle parks with wall rides, big gap doubles, hips and berms.

Transition Gran Mal-Initial Impressions Transition Gran Mal-Initial Impressions
A couple weeks back, the owners of Transition Bikes were in our neck of the woods riding their shiny new Gran Mal's with some of their team members from Washington. They were also here to deliver a few bikes to be abused (er-tested) by the Pinkbike R&D crew. After seeing what they were doing on the new machine, we were keen to get out and ride the Gran Mal ourselves.
