    “Solid Trailblazer AKA Thunderbird frame”

    The Good: American Made Great Geometry True Temper Supertherm top & down tubes Comes in a large variety of top tube lengths Lightweight but strong design Heat treated dropouts Integrated seat clamp. Dual Head tube gussets.

    The Bad: Frame is now called the Thunderbird,No other changes besides the name, Picture above is a Solid AA frame not the Thunderbird. I am not a big fan of the uncapped seat and chainstays at the dropouts, But thats more of a personal preference thing. Solid has not yet used the removable brake mount design on their frames.But offers frames with or without mounts. The only negative thing i can say about it the paint jobs that come on their frames are not as good as other brands like S&M,Fit,Etc. Otherwise its a great frame overall.

    Overall Review: I purchased this frame around 8 months ago coming from an s&m randy brown frame. I have always been a fan of Solid,This frame being the 3rd i have owned over the past 10 years. Solid really updated their newest frames with butted supertherm tubing,Micro dropouts,Integrated seat clamps,Tapered seat and chain stays etc. When i first got the frame what stood out the most was the quality welds,I purchased the clear coated raw version in a 21.5 and it was awesome seeing the heat around the welds,It gives it a tough,Unique look. I ordered the frame from Solid and received it 2 days later via Fed Ex.It was very well packaged in a nice box and the frame was in a high quality clear plastic cover,Frame was also included with stickers and 1 pair of Solid grips. The frame went together without any issues,Very smooth assembly,Everything fit nice and snug.My first impression when riding it is the geometry fit me like a glove,It isn't too overly responsive like most bikes,It feels stable,Stiff,And has held up great so far.I would recommend buying a Solid if your in the market for a new frame.Solid is always very helpful with questions and stand behind their products more then any company i have dealt with. I would give the frame 5 out of 5 stars overall, I would rate the fit and finish 4 out of 5 because their paint isn't as good as some other brands. So overall i still consider it a 5 out of 5.
