    Does the Transition Patrol require a 1x drive train? I didn't see their typical direct mount for the front derailleur in that picture.

    I chatted with Keith at Transition and the Patrol will take a plate mounted front derailleur. Also, I will be posting a video shortly on my Facebook page of Keith presenting the new 2015 bikes.
