    Moab White Rim Rental: Turner Sultan or Transition Covert?

    I'm going out to Moab this fall to ride the White Rim with some buddies and will need to rent a bike. The place we're renting from (Chile Pepper Bikes) has Turner, Giant and Transition 29ers. I've ridden a Giant 29 before and loved it, but wanted to try something different. I've heard good things about Turners, but nothing about Transition.
    Suggestions???

    Moab White Rim Rental: Turner Sultan or Transition Covert?

    Riding the White Rim is going to be about bizness, so I'd say the Turner. If you were renting for playing around, I'd say Transition.

    Thanks Moabdude. I rode the White Rim two years ago on the Giant Anthem 29er. First thing I did when I got back to the east coast was sell my 26" and buy a 29er (Trek Superfly, which I absolutely love).
    I want to try the Turner or the Transition just to compare. I'm sure they're both great bikes.

    I rode it the last 2 years on my Surly Pugsley. Either bike is going to be fine, just go with which one rings your bell
