    Transition Covert 29 build

    Transitions are kinda underrepresented here on the 29er forum so I figured I'd post this, my first custom build from a boutique manufacturer. As pictured it weighs 31.2 lbs, which is not bad for a 140mm AM 29er with an overbuilt frame. Also, the single-pivot suspension works great to me with the Fox CTD shock, and this is coming from FSR and Maestro/DW bikes in the past.

    Anyway, enough blabber.....

    What does your Bandit weigh? Are you using a Fox 34?

    Mmmmm mmmmmm, that is a tasty build (apologies to Samuel Jackson). Are those I9 Torches and a full X0 build? Impressive weight for a 120mm 29er.

    Part of the weight savings is that I am running 1x10.

    Here is the build list.
    XO shifter
    XO type 2 RD
    XO cranks with XX1 spider and chainring
    XX cassette
    XTR brakes
    Thomson stem and post
    Niner alloy bar
    I9 torch trail wheels
    Ergon saddle
