    Transition Dirtbag 2007 geometry

    Are the 2007 DBs the same as the 2006. I had heard Transition may be changing them a bit for 2007. Maybe jsut a rumor. I have not emailed transition yet as I bet someone hear knows the answer.

    Does anybody know the weight of the new frame? Everything above 10 lbs is to much for me!

    (I don't believe the 8.2 without shock on their site)

    I just gave a good thrashing to an '07 DB test-bike today, on DH-oriented trails in Oregon. My IH Yakuza is 47 lbs, and the built '07 DB felt like it was maybe 5lbs lighter (installed fork was a Totem, I believe).

    Sick: the rear travel felt bottomless and stiff, no lateral flex in the links at all. Tight cockpit, but it was a demo and not set up specifically for me, if it was it would be about the same layout as my current downhill rig (close but controllable). Great turning radius, popped right up and over the jumps. Short story, size large in mustard yellow is my replacement frame when I finally break my Yakuza Kumicho.
