    48 threads about Transition Bikes on the front page

    Isn't it time Transition got it's own forum? There's obviously plenty of interest in their bikes, most of the discussion on this forum is about Transition. What would it take for Transition to get their own forum? Maybe a certain number of signatures on a petition?

    Or how about a poll? Yeah, that's it, place your vote...not that it'll definitely make a difference, but vote anyway.

    I heard they won't get their own forum until they produce a 29er.

    Too funny--I have been thinking the same exact thing! And before I even clicked on this post, I was thinking (jokingly) that one of your poll options should read very similarly to your "Yes, and while you're at it, make a Knolly one too" option! As much as I would like a separate Knolly forum, I don't think there would be enough traffic to justify it (yet--there will be once the Endorphin hits the street ), but there are SO many Transition posts on this forum that it is already the de facto Transition board...

    Transition bikes? Never heard of 'em. Who are all these dirtbags anyways? And why do they like fireworks so much?

    wow.

    could it maybe be, to keep mud from flying up into the riders face, especially the eyes?

    do you think that could possibly be it?

    having lived and ridden in several very wet/muddy areas over the years, front fenders are sometimes nice, way more than rear fenders.

    Same fender

    on my Preston. Works well at keeping my glasses and face cleaner.

    Zion bikes?

    I don't get it.

    Why is there no love for Transition?

    Is it really the 29er thing? I was kind of joking about that before, but then I noticed Zion does have a 29er...

    I do believe it costs $ to get a manufacturer forum, not necessarily interest.

    Is that a fact? Do manufacturers pay for a forum on mtbr?
