Winter is coming and the guys got a first-hand dose of it while riding at Retallack recently. It made for some amazing shots as Skye and Kyle spent a day on the 2018 Patrol.
Video created by Kevin Menard and Skye Schillhammer
Thanks to Mike Kinrade for guiding us around and fluffing the loam!

i dream about dirt like that

That was awesome, but how in the hell can they afford to license that song?
(Oct 9, 2017 at 11:56)
Was thinking the same. But it worked so well. Instant smile on my face.

Stoked! I have a preorder on this frame. I think it was a good decition to Transition....

If you're starting a pun thread, you could be a little more Covert about it.

gotta be careful with comments like that or you’ll be accused of being a Smuggler.
(Oct 6, 2017 at 14:32)
You Bandit, you stole my joke!
(Oct 6, 2017 at 20:45)
Hey dont make me have to patrol the comments for bad puns

: someone might get upset.... like they lit off a bottlerocket in their house!
(Oct 7, 2017 at 8:03)
Sorry to tell you but the pre-orders are delayed well into November as of now....not sure why Transition hasn't let their customers know. I had to contact them to find out where my Sentinel that I paid for a month ago is....
(Oct 7, 2017 at 8:07)
: worst news of the year right there
(Oct 7, 2017 at 8:21)
: you're telling me, I have been without a bike for over a month now...what I was told, verbatim, was
"It's always so hard to lock down a definite date as there are so many variables, we were suppose to receive them mid to end of October however It does look like the estimated arrival got pushed until the 1st of November which is still an estimate... Sorry for the inconvenience."
Interpret that however you want...doesn't sound good for people hoping to have a bike before December.
(Oct 8, 2017 at 9:58)
: this happens frequently with direct order brands (YT is famous for it), but for a company like Transition where you are paying a premium, I would expect better logistics management and firm delivery dates. Not cool.
(Oct 9, 2017 at 7:31)
: just my experience, ordered a YT in early mid of May they told me (before my order) that the bike was available only the 12th of July, the 12th of July bike was in my house :-)
(Oct 9, 2017 at 14:55)
: ETA had been "mid to late October" and as you get closer to those dates, the estimate gets more and more accurate. It sounds like you have heard the estimated ETA was pushed back a couple weeks to "early November." Keep in mind that it's generally good practice to give safe dates so you don't disappoint people. Rather than waiting until late October and then telling you "it will be here soon" you have been given a realistic estimate, based on more up to date info. Seems pretty good to me?
What you were apparently told: "It's always so hard to lock down a definite date as there are so many variables, we were suppose to receive them mid to end of October however It does look like the estimated arrival got pushed until the 1st of November which is still an estimate... Sorry for the inconvenience."
And FYI that Transition does not accept any payment from a dealer or end consumer until a bike is actually shipping out. So if you have already paid for that at a shop... that is between you and the shop. Transition doesn't have your money yet.
(Oct 9, 2017 at 17:59)
: Apologies, my transaction was with the shop, that's a fair point. My point was just that it would have been nice to see an announcement of some sort, as opposed to having to have a shop owner call the brand rep...I know there are probably many other people out there wondering when their new bike might arrive. Not bitter...just really really really stoked...the waiting is horrible...
(Oct 16, 2017 at 6:33)
not sure what to make of it but Fanatik Bike Co. put a video out a few days ago saying that they are going to be selling Transition as of now and that they expect to have the SBG equipped bikes around December...
(Oct 6, 2017 at 19:23)
Transition's films are getting better and better! It may just be because Im on a bluegrass kick right now though...
(Oct 6, 2017 at 20:35)
Probably because they hired Skye to make them.
(Oct 8, 2017 at 11:02)
: Yup! Skye's got some serious talent!
(Oct 6, 2017 at 15:27)
I just start enjoying that video and then suddenly was end! Why so short?
(Oct 7, 2017 at 4:56)
Trying to decide on 2018 Patrol frame or the Sentinel!
(Oct 8, 2017 at 7:36)
Same here. I wish someone would do a proper comparison.
(Oct 8, 2017 at 11:03)
(Oct 8, 2017 at 13:50)
: Yep, I was waiting for more reviews but there is already waiting line pretty much into next year depending on size and color.
(Oct 8, 2017 at 14:22)
Why not the scout as well ?
(Oct 11, 2017 at 6:30)
Patrol is a bit more poppy and energetic and the Sentinel is an absolute slayer over everything DH but likes to stay a bit more glued to the ground.
(Oct 11, 2017 at 11:11)
: I hear you, I own a 2016 Patrol. I'm just wondering if a little less travel along with the new geometry of the Sentinel may be the perfect in between mix!
(Oct 6, 2017 at 11:26)
Perfect video, perfect riders, perfect location. Cool song choice too! Yew

I'd say it is about mid-autumn now. PLEASE SEND THE BIKES!!!
(Oct 6, 2017 at 13:03)
Hmm I think I might have to pop for a few heli shuttles next summer.
