Our buddies over at The Fix Bike Shop just got in the 2010 Black Market Bikes lineup.  Here's their overview of the new line to catch you up to speed:


Black Market Bikes is back at it for 2010 with some awesome looking new product.  The big news is the introduction of their new full suspension frame, The Killswitch, which is already getting rave reviews from the lucky few who are riding it and looks absolutely sinister.  They also have a new 24″ hardtail frame with The Contraband, featuring a press-in Mid bottom bracket and integrated seat clamp.

Also in store for 2010 are the new complete bikes, The Malice and The Soldier, replacing the outgoing 357 and Riot completes with some seriously slick new graphics and the same can’t-be-beat pricing the old bikes were known for.

The higher end of the two bikes, The Malice, offers a butted cro-mo frame, a Hayes Stroker hydraulic brake, 20mm Marzocchi DJ 1 fork, Microdrive drivetrain, and of course the world famous Black Market geometery. $1300.

Black Market’s entry level offering gives you the exact same geometry and toughness that made their frames famous, with a solid parts kit that keeps the price within reach.  You get a straight gauge cromoly frame, Marzocchi DJ 3 fork, Hayes Mechanical Brakes, and Microdrive drivetrain.  $1000.

The Contraband  takes some features from the Mob and Riot frames, but it features new 24″ wheel geometry with nice short stays,  new Sanko tubing and a Mid BB shell for running a BMX style press-in bottom bracket.  Two colors for now to satisfy you 24-inchers out there, check em out.  Price is at $399.

Finally, Black Market’s brand spanking new full suspension frame, The Killswitch, is due to hit our shores within the next few weeks.  A totally new and in-house design, The Killswitch applies Black Market’s world famous geometry to the full suspension market, creating a bike that is perfect for slopestyle, dirt jumping, or general do-it-all goodness.  Combine that with ultra clean lines, interchangeable dropouts, and an exciting new suspension design called the hammerlink and you get one of the most exciting new bikes this season.
