    They are the Juin Tech DB1. They work every bit as good as the M785's on my other bike.

    I was considering buying a new bike but couldn't bring myself to part with my Stumpy just yet. So I upgraded to a 1x10 drivetrain, a 750mm handlebar and popped on some 2.5in Kenda Nevegal's and continued to shred :)

    Haven't posted here in a while. Latest upgrades include a 170 Lyrik RCT3 and a Command Post ircc. Once the Minion SS dies up probably throw on an Aggressor. Love this bike!

    Short stem/wide bars and make sure the flip chips are in the "low slack" and your good to go. I put many miles on my old Remedy. Great bike.
    Have fun!

    My "new" Bandit 29. I got sick of riding a hardtail on all the PA rocks, so I picked up the frame and fork used, and put everything from the hardtail on it that would fit.

    2012 Transition Bandit 29, large frame
    Pike RCT3 140mm w/Capra decals
    RaceFace Turbine 725mm bars
    RaceFace Turbine 50mm stem
    ODI SDG grips
    XTR M980 10 spd shifter
    XT M786 10 spd derailleur
    XT CN-HG95 chain
    XT M771 11-36T cassette
    XT M785 brakes
    XT RT86 180mm/160mm rotors
    RaceFace NarrowWide 32T chainring
    RaceFace Ride Cransket
    Stan's ArchEX w/OEM stealth decals
    Minion DHF 2.3 front
    Ardent 2.25 rear
    RaceFace Ride XC seatpost
    Old Specialized saddle
    Chris King i2 headset
    Hope Seatpost Collar

    I have an appointment with Push in two weeks for the RP23 shock, and the RWS bearings are going in at the same time. Fox Transfer 125mm dropper, WolfTooth lever, SDG FlyMTN saddle, and RaceFace Atlas Stealth 785mm bars are all in the mail, should have them by the weekend. Waiting on Vorsprung to get the Pike Luftkappe back in stock, and I'll be installing it and rebuilding/bleeding the fork at the same time.

    If I can keep myself upright, it's shaping up to be a great season on this bike. Even with a fork in need of a rebuild and damper bleed, and a shock in need of bushings and a rebuild, and some parts that aren't a great fit for this bike (bars, lack of dropper, etc), I absolutely love this thing. I wanted something I could ride much harder than a bland XC hardtail, and this bike is definitely it!

    A word to the wise ^^ keep an eye in your rear triangle...

    Particularly the lower stays (front & rear)





    I too, loved my Bandit - but it started cracking up [emoji26] front weld didn't fix issue i.e. cracking shifted to weld edge.

    A riding bud had a Bandit also that did the same thing [emoji15]

    YMMV...

    I've heard all about the triangle cracking on them, unfortunately only after I bought the frame. For now I'm just going to keep an eye on it and hope I don't end up with the same thing happening. If it does crack, I'll just break out the TIG and weld it up as many times as I need to. It will be a pain in the ass, but I think I should be able to get a season out of it.

    After reading about the crack issues, I was actually considering preemptively boxing that section of the frame where the cracks are known to happen, and gusseting the rear. Might sound excessive, but with a TIG welder in the garage and nothing but time, I don't think it would hurt.

    i doubt it would help as its a case of poor heat treating,you can reweld or weld in supports but it would need reheat treating

    I wouldn't go without reheat treating. I have a kiln I use in knifemaking and for other alloy heat treating that has plenty of room for that chainstay section.

    It would just be an excuse to not be a cheapass and actually buy a new frame!

    Hoping this Bandit lasts a bit though, rode again yesterday and I'm really loving it. Same trails I'm used to have a whole different feel now.

    Thanks! You're the first person outside of a Honda forum who caught the meaning. I used to have a '95 GSR with an H22A swap, so the 2.2 part fit nicely. It has been a long time since I've had anything fun to rip around in.

    I'm using Formula RX brakes, not the best brakes for road, if you ask me :)

    And yes, I like to ride in the winter a lot, and that day the weather was ESPECIALLY bad, so I washed it there before heading to give it a full service back in January.
