    Transition Rapture CX

    Just spotted this on Transition's site while looking for trail bikes.

    Transition Rapture CX

    Many of the folks at Transition are long time cyclocross racers so it was only natural to come out with our take on a cross bike that can not only shred dirt but be extremely competitive come race day. We choose steel for the same awesome feel as our TransAM models. The frame is packed with awesome details like a custom dropout that gives you the option for singlespeed or geared builds. On the Transition Rapture you can make fast singlespeed wheel changes with a QR wheel and no need to retension. The dropout's compact and easy to use Swinger Tension System allows you to set and forget.

    The frame comes with an ED coating inside and out so it is rust proof all over. The top tube features internal brake cable routing so nothing gets in the way of shouldering your bike. If you are running singlespeed, the downtube cable stops are removable for a cleaner look. All framesets come standard with our steel disc cross fork for a balanced feel. The headtube is 44mm to run tapered steerer tube carbon forks (We are huge fans of the ENVE Composites disc cross fork which saves over a pound on the build). Dropouts come standard with a derailleur mount but if you are running a singlespeed we do have a hangerless dropout available for a super clean look.



    WHEEL SIZE: 700c
    FRAME MATERIAL: Founderland Co. LTD Race Butted 4130 Seamless Chromoly with ED Rust Proof finish
    SIZES: 48 (sm), 52 (md), 55 (lg), 58 (xl)
    COLORS: Matte Black, Neon Green
    FRAME WEIGHT: (Size 55) 4.7 lbs / 2.14 kg | Fork 2.2 lbs / 1.0 kg(Uncut Steer Tube)
    COMPLETE WEIGHT: 18.5 lbs. / 8.39 kg (Pictured Green Bike)
    WARRANTY: 2 year defect warranty, lifetime crash replacement.
    SEATPOST/CLAMP: 27.2mm Seatpost/29.8mm Clamp
    HEADTUBE/HEADSET: 44mm Upper / 44mm Lower (Does not come with headset)
    BOTTOM BRACKET: 68mm BSA
    REAR DROPOUT: 10 x 135mm (With Swinger Tension System)
    FRONT DERAILLEUR: 31.8mm High Clamp (Bottom Pull)
    BRAKES: Disc Only
    FRAMESET PRICE: $599 US* (Comes with Matching Chromoly Disc Fork)
    Pretty sure I didn't see this on their website a week ago when I was looking at DJ bikes. Must be brand new. Good to see Transition getting into the CX arena now.

    Trying to understand the $0 crash replacement policy, can anyone elaborate upon this? Recently was screwed by unnamed bicycle company and if I understand the crash replacement policy the way I think I understand it, my next two bike purchases will be from Transition.
    -rides bikes for fun.

    Let's be clear here: Transition Bikes make Traitor and this is a Traitor Crusade. =P

    Assuming that it is the same as their sister company (Traitor Bikes), if you break your frame in a crash, they will sell you a new one at cost. I haven't seen anything in regards to $0 though.

    Ok, so I guess it's not brand new. Either way, still a cool looking bike.

    They look even better in person. I just got mine about a week ago and color and finish on the bike are great. I'm just finishing up the build and first ride should be this weekend. If it rides as nice as it looks, I am going to be stoked.

    They are currently sold out on everything but the 48. The 48 can be bought off the Traitor Cycles website.
