    XX1, Pike and an Angleset would make this a perfect bike for me.

    That's what I was thinking, but won't start with the angle set. Pike was suggested and I think it would be great but most of my rides are short with really steep climbing. My current Bandit is super fun but is the least adept climber I have. Salsa Mukluk outclimbs my legs and my Yelli Screamy with Talas 120/90 does awesome when lowered...although it drops the BB so can't leave it there in rocky spots. Any suggestions for an adjustable travel fork for the Bandit?

    I'd agree, but I think there's always some trade offs with these things - the slacker and longer travel they are, the less capable climber it will be. I guess build it to what suits your trails.

    If I don't buy mine complete, I'm pretty interested in a Manitou Mattoc.

    The spec listed on that page sound about right Chad_Money? I was really hoping that Transition would do a 150mm Pike option.

    Any thought on sizing for this bike? I tend to like smaller bikes, I'm 5'10" and currently run a bike with 571.5mm (a Commencal Meta 55) top tube length, Bandit M measures 576 and 604 for L.

    Should I dare to go with a large? Maybe that is more within the recommendations, I like the bike I have but is it time for change?

    sounds like a medium to me, its a bit longer than your current bike and you sound comfortable on the smaller side anyways.

    Interested in your thoughts on sizing for those coming off of a 26" Bandit Chad - if a Large fits me nicely, should I stay with that?

    I would , since you seem comfortable. Are you running the standard setup 60mm stem and so on?

    Yep, 60mm stem. 720mm bars. I will be keen to run something more like a 740mm on the Bandit 275, maybe even a 760.

    My build is going slow due to the fact that I couldn't ride it if it was complete. But It looks cool clamped in the stand. Large 27.5, short stem/wide bars, 1 x 11, Pike 160/130, hope hubs in Flow Ex wheels (unbelievably easy to set up tubeless, jeez) Stealth dropper and yes , Avid brakes. If the snow went away I would gather some trail bike motivation...
    I have a large Bandit 26 that may need to go?

    Hey I was wondering from people who own these. I currently have a a old xc bike. But as I am coming off a moto background it's not near enough bike. I have test ridden a lot of bikes but as I live in Nebraska most the people want to wear spandex and ride hard tails so that's mostly what the shops carry. Any way does this bike still peddal pretty good? I will have to buy sight unseen and only will get to try the 29er version. I am just looking for a fun bike to pop off all the little options and roots and hit 3-4 drops. Thanks for any opinions!

    Bandit 27.5-bandit1.jpgI'm one state west of you and have a nice Bandit 26 for sale. They are fun and will do exactly what you are looking for. Here's my 26. I'm a little worried that I won't like my new one as much but I don't have the suspension setup right yet. Here's my 27.5Bandit 27.5-bandit-27.5-1-12-14.jpg

    Transition also has the RS Pike available. Either the 150 or the 160/130 2 position.

    Does the 150 have anything like the ctd on the fox? It's not 2 position like the 160?

    Open and locked. Honestly, I rarely select a thing but open or locked on my fox stuff. I do use both positions on my Talas.

    Does anyone know how large of a tire will fit in the rear triangle? Also, what size tires come with the complete build?

    Hi,

    Do any of you have weights for completed bikes? I have an earlier Covert and would like a bike for hanging with my race oriented friends so wonder how a Bandit 27.5 would compare.

    My earlier Covert is a medium and perfect. I'm 5'10" with more longer legs, shorter torso and find that medium to be perfect.

    This bike is in my sights because I rented 29rs and liked them on fast trail rides but they were not as playful as my earlier Covert but I'd like a lighter bike too.

    Thanks for any info.

    how do you guys think this will compare to the covert as an all around, descent oriented type bike? im looking for something to replace my v2 covert, and want to do a lot more enduro racing.

    i love the covert for how playful it is, but never liked how it pedaled, and for how poorly it pedaled it didnt make up for it on the downhills, i demoed some bikes last year that climbed much better and still felt better on the downhills, they werent exactly lacking the fun department either, so after that i decided its time for a new bike.

    I've got a big budget for this build, would like it to be around 4-5k when finished, but could go to 6k if i need. i was thinking 160mm fork, maybe an angleset. with my budget i could really splurge on a nice light wheelset, and maybe even bos suspension. would like to be under 28lbs.

    its either that or something like a mach 6 carbon, with not quite as nice of a build.

    do you think this could keep up with some of the longer travel, burlier enduro bikes? or is it maybe too trail oriented?

    Bandit 27.5

    I also have a v2 covert i also was not happy with the climbing performance of it. I always found it bobbing during pedaling, and i found the headangle a little steep, and the bottom tacket to high.

    Then i stubled across push-tuning and offset bushings. These two measures completely changed the caracter of my covert.

    The bushings lowered the bb by a cm and flattened the headangle by a degree. Now it feels planted and more stable on decents, but you can realy throw it around and it is still playful.

    The push tuning made the shock more progressive and finally the propedal lever really makes a difference. No more pedalbob on the uphill.

    I really have a new bike.

    I did not try the bandid 27,5 but i also have a bandid29 from 2012( the one with more travel). But now the covert comes close in terms of uphill, but is more sturdy and i would take to the park anytime.

    I'm sure a 2.4 would fit the rear without issue. But haven't tried it.
    I haven't weighed my bike yet, sorry.
    I did get out on it yesterday and it was really positive. The Pike 160/130 is great and I'm super happy to have it. I used the 2 positions and the 130 didn't make the front end feel goofy even on flat sections of the climb and the front end never felt light during steeper spots. It wasn't excessively steep so that may change? I did pedal a pretty long section of steep asphalt and never even thought to lock the fork...I did lock the float ctd shock though. Pleased with that as well. I don't think 160 is too much for this bike so far. I have a terrible habit of pedal strikes on my Yelli and Bandit 26 v.1 but only tapped the pedals 2 times yesterday. For me, the BB being a touch higher is good. Excited for a little drier conditions to see what it is really all about.

    Is anyone using the KS LEV Integra yet? Any idea if Transition have the new ones or not, I believe the old ones used to have issues with sticky cables and I'm not sure if the bend at the bottom of the Bandit seat tube is too tight for the LEV?

    I don't imagine much has changed between the 26 and the 275 as far as tire clearance goes. I have run a Minion 2.5 in the rear of mine with no issues. I get a little buzz when I am pushing it hard but that is probably more due to so much flex in a big tire and wheelset flex too.

    Any new impressions using the pike 130/160? How is it climbing the steep stuff in 130? How does 160 feel on the downs? How's the pedaling platform in trail mode going uphill? Any pedal feedback as the suspension reacts to terrain? Have ya weighed it yet? Sorry for all the questions, just about to pull the trigger on a bike in the next couple of weeks and there is little to be read out there on the new 27.5 bandit. Thanks for your

    Was able to get the bike on dirt twice this week and it is snowing today. First ride was pretty moderate stuff with some dry wash riding with big rocks, sand and cobble. Did good. Yesterday was some of my trails that are pretty challenging...narrow, rocky steep. These trails are more about slow speed and control over fast and flowy. I was really surprised at the stuff I was clearing even after a long winter of little riding. I switched the fork to 130mm for a few steep climbs and it was so much better than my Bandit 26 with float 140 and external cup. Even at 160 it felt a lot less squirrely. There are quite a few creaks and pops coming from the bike and I can't stand the noise. I thought it was the xo1 cassette but maybe the frame bearings need extra grease like my old Bandit. Pedal bob seems a lot less noticeable and haven't really felt the need to use the pro pedal switch and I left the Pike in the plush mode. So far I am really happy with the bike.

    Any word on weight or an approximation? I'm not looking to go weight weenie here but wondering if this will be a lighter bike than my older 140 mm Covert.

    Did you sort out the noise? I've been looking at more sophisticated suspension designs and the reliability of my older Covert is keeping the single pivots in mind too.

    It looks like their sizing has changed since my Covert that I think is v 1.5. My med is 23.5 top tube and it appears a med Bandit has shorter effective top tube.

    Thanks for any updates and info.

    Sorry if I have missed where you typed it, but which rear shock are you running Hoka Hey?

    Finally, it's built!



    Anyone have suspension setup tips for the Float X on the Bandit 275? I'm running 170psi and that still feels waaay too low.

    Hey guys...what's the stand over height? I ordered a M frame with the 2 build a few days ago after a lot of waffling and research, and what scares me is I never got a number on the SOH. When I asked about it with reference to a M or L, the Transition guys just said that their SOH didn't vary much between frame sizes from S up to XL. No numbers online, and they didn't give me one.

    I have a 26" RH Comp now in L, and the SOH is over 31", and it bugs me. I'm concerned I may have screwed up by going with the Transition over the Trance. Can anyone help put my mind at ease?

    Well, it feels great on the push down test. Ha, total fail, my bandit is all the way built except I was out of shifter housing, and the shop has had it since Monday. I can't wait to ride it.

    Killer build Jeremy! I love the NextSLs. It's always stupid things like housing that hold up a build hey!

    It's transformed a bit since I built it. The suspension has smoothed out a bit. Still a bit of bob on the rear (Float X), but I think that is exaggerated by how high the Pike stays in it's travel. I'll likely end up running closer to 20% sag in the shock I think. That said, it is light years ahead of my old RP2 or whatever was on my Bandit 26.

    Finally have High Roller II's on it too. Perfect for Whistler!

    I'm not stoked on X01. I consider myself a fairly handy person (been working on bikes a long time) but there's loads of creaking that comes under torque when climbing. I've had it to 3 other mechanics in town (Whistler is owned by SRAM last time I checked too) and it's still not sorted. Word is that it's not a particularly silent drivetrain...

    Hi Jeremy R,
    Can you share us your feeling of using CCDB Inline shock on Bandit?
    I am thinking to switch from a Float CTD to Inline also.
    Thank you

    For what it is worth I run the Float X on my Bandit 27.5 and I think it makes the bike feel pretty incredible. It just seems to eat up the small bumps and is very controlled on the larger hits too. I have no experience with the Cane Creek shock but I can speak very highly of the Float X as another option.

    Yeah, I will be more than happy to share my thoughts in the Inline, but I do want to say first that that is the ONLY shock I have had on my bandit, so I can't make a direct comparison. That said, the inline is awesome on this bike. The adjustments let you dial in the ride to exactly what you prefer. I have been running double barrels since 07, so I am very familiar with tuning them, but the Inline did not require much tuning on the bandit. The stock settings out of the box work great. I think I have 1/4 turn less HSC, and everything else is like the stock tune. It is supple off the top of the travel, really settles into the midstroke, and ramps up perfectly by letting you use full travel without a harsh bottom out. The climb assist works as designed but I really only use it for a paved climb or a long gravel road climb. The bandit with this shock pedals really well. Sorry, I don't really have anything negative to say on it.

    As far as the Bandit itself, I honestly can't stay off the thing. I am constantly trying to fit in little hour long rides on days that I don't really have time to ride. My last bike was a SB66 Carbon with a CCDB air which was a great bike, but there is something about this Bandit that just makes me want to ride the wheels off of it. It is just super fun. Let me know if you have any specific questions on the inline.

    I got a steal on a 2014 closeout, and I absolutely love this bike. I was told by several people that it was a "snappy pedaling" bike, and despite having no idea what that meant, I certainly do now. Just like Jeremy said, it's just FUN to ride.

    I know the blue/red combo is a little stark, but back in the day I had a Torker BMX bike (still have it btw), and that was my color theme that happened strictly because of the amalgamation of components that I could afford to put on it.

    Working with the Transition guys is just too cool. This was a stock 3 build, but I had it upgraded to Kashima coated 34 forks. If you look closely, you'll see that some of the components that shipped vary a little (cough, cough) from what the 3 build was spec'd to be.

    I have a 2 mile section with a lot of flow that I like to "sprint" from time to time just to see my time on it. I thought I would go faster vs. my 26" hard tail, but it's not even close. I am much faster on the Bandit, and I think it's just how much better it keeps up momentum over chatter.

    At any rate...the thing turns heads, and the LBS has sold three more since mine arrived. I have no idea how many Transition had left over, and I'm sure the new Scout is a great bike as well. I don't know what my next bike will be, but it will be a Transition. Those guys are the best!

    Nice bike!

    I'm also being tempted by the closeout prices.

    Did you ask for the red pivots?

    every pic I've seen the 27.5 had blue pivots.

    I knew that was going to come up! I'll just say this, and I really don't want to comment further. It didn't come with red pivots, and they were added a little later after a few people commented on how cool it would look with them. From there...it's really top secret stuff.

    I'm not sure there are any closeouts left, but if there are you better hurry. I know someone was in the LBS the other day and he wanted a gunmetal gray in M, and they didn't have that frame anymore.

    Bandit 27.5-bandit.jpgNWAtrailyguy, I knew that, because mine came also with a blue pivots.
    Anyway, where you bought the red pivots?
    Thanks

    I knew I should have just posted the pictures I took with the blue pivots before I changed them out.

    Some of the previous year's bikes had the red pivots. I'll leave it at that.

    Cool...the picture of your bike just showed up after I posted my reply. NICE! I actually wanted the Float X, but they didn't have any left in stock. So far I have no complaints at all with stock though. Are those X fusion forks? I can't read them on the picture.

    Mine goes in later in the week for a stealth dropper, and to add a bash guard. I am not quite ready to convert to 1x front, but it's on the list if the rumor of some more affordable cassette choices hit this upcoming spring/summer. I'm just getting back into it, and while I"m avoiding granny gear like the plague, I don't have the strength or fitness to go 1x yet.

    Yeah, it was X-Fusion Sweep fork, works great, especially when it was tuned by suspension expert and Mid Valve was removed, it better than fox but from my previous experience on 26 RS Pike is much better, and this X-Fusion was some compromise when I built the bike.
    Any way I just swapped to Inline and Pike.
    After my first ride with Inline I can say that this is a shock for a Bandit, I have no previous experiences with CCDB, also tested on Bandit Float CTD and RS Monarch Plus RC3, and Inline works much better, finally suspensions is works, my previous bikes were VPP (NomadC and Banshee Spitfire) so it was difficult to me to ride on single pivot.
    But with Inline its feels me good right now.

    Bandit 27.5-923816_1500074340242809_705077625_n.jpg

    First post here from south west UK. Had my red and blue bandit since the summer, it's my first full sus after a couple of years on a steel hard tail.

    Built myself on a budget so sektor forks, full slx, mavic cross ride wheels, fatbar lites and a reverb. It's 30lbs but rides light

    It's so quick, up and downhill, I've crushed plenty of strava PR's and scored a couple of downhill KOMs on exmoor yesterday.

    I've just got the stock fox shock. It regularly uses all the travel but I've never really felt it bottom out. I'm light though, like 140lbs

    I rode a few different bikes before committing, a covert (amazing but too much bike for my needs) orange 5, couple of treks, an SC blur and a canyon.

    Settled on the bandit partly on their reputation as good pedalling fun bikes and partly from being blown away on a demo day.

    So glad I did, it's An amazing bike!

    This is the same experience I have had with both of my Bandits. They blow through travel like no tomorrow but ramp up at the end - they never seem to completely bottom out.

    It's all about technical climbing though, the Float X is light years ahead of my old RP23 or whatever they called it that year.

    That's interesting about the climbing, others have told me the x is a real upgrade. I don't have any real local prior full sus experience to draw on. Most of our local climbs aren't that technical and the bandit has beaten all my previous strava pr's set on my 26" hardtail so it's no slouch up hill!

I want to believe I'll sling a leg over one and be perfectly content with what I have, but I still have that fear of bike envy.

    PS...I put a stealth dropper on, and it works great. Well...it works great as long as it's above about 35F. I learned that the hard way. Dropped it all the way down in the garage before I racked it. Then I went to raise it when I got to the trail head, and it wouldn't budge. I wasn't feeling up to a 1.5 hr ride with it slammed down, so I had to go back home and get my 26" bike. I'm hoping leaving it up all of the time will solve that on cold days, and it doesn't sink under pressure.

    I'll try to get better pics to show how nice it really is.

    I hear ya on the scout, but I ordered a large which falls between the new large and medium and being 5'10" I always fall between the two sizes. I've got a 50mm stem on it and this thing fits like a glove.

    As far as the suspension performance I honestly can't see it being much better. I was worried about the single pivot since the only other f.s. I 've owned were bmc which were very efficient. It rides very very smoothly and only notice movement on the smoothest of trails while hammering with the shock fully open , in the trail position there is nothing to notice.

    Needless to say I'm very happy with this bike.

    Oh, I know how nice it is! I saw the one in the shop built up, and thought about how cool it would look with blue accents...pedals, clamp, stem, and lock on grips.

    Interesting about the sizing. I can see where the L would work great with a 50mm stem, and I probably could have gone either way...I was right on the line. I hadn't even looked at the geo on the new 2015 bikes. I'm 5'10" too, but only wear a 33 1/4" sleeve. Cee Lo Green arms. With 760mm bars, my M feels perfect. I like a little more upright riding position and being able to get the front up a little easier. I don't feel cramped at all.

    I run mine on Trail/Medium on both ends virtually all the time. We don't really have any sustained climbs to speak of. I do notice a difference in cornering if I go to Descend, but for "all around" trail riding, I find I really like Trail/Medium setting. I haven't really played with it enough to even know if the soft and firm trail settings even make any difference or not...probably marketing more than anything.

    Oh..and I also installed a black RaceFace 36T bash guard up front and kept my 2x. It fits perfectly, and the front derailleur just baaaaarely clears.

    I may go 1x in the future, but I'm not ready to make the jump at this point. That's probably what I'll be jealous of the most on the Scout. The 1x with the 42T rear.

    Try a little Slickoleum/Honey Butter on there, that may help. I have a LEV Integra and I keep the seatpost up about 1/2 inch while I'm storing it. That way when I go for a ride I drop it the half inch then it breaks the seal and allows it to rise up the whole way. It'd just all about breaking that seal.

    My post got stuck down while riding yesterday. It eventually came back up but was moving very very slow. Brought it by the shop and my mechanic said it just needed a bleed. Also that storing it down or up should matter, but he did say below freezing could effect performance a bit. I'll be riding all week so I'll report back if any other irregularities pop up.

    On a side note the bandit as a whole is one bad ass machine that loves to go fast!

    I'm interested to see the report back on this. My only feedback would be that without a 160mm fork, I would venture to say that you'd be painting rocks. I wouldn't even consider that with my 140mm 32 fork.

    You still liking the in-line?

    What would you say is the main difference in feel is, between it and the Fox ctd?

    I can't find the in between of descend and trail, meaning I find trail a little too firm and descend a little too soft.

    Or I might just be looking for an excuse to spend more money on my bike.

    Yeah I wouldn't do it with a 140mm 32. I'm running a Pike 160. According to Lars:

    "Bandit 27.5 geo was based around a Fox 32 140mm travel fork with 530mm axle to crown. I'd estimate about a full degree change for 20mm of axle to crown increase.

    Adding an angleset will only increase the BB height as the only one you can use with a tapered steer fork is external, so it will add to the stack height."

    It's actually my wife's and it has a -1.5 Works Components, which is internal on the bottom. She runs a Pike 150, the set-up put the BB right about where it would have been. It was built that way from the beginning, so no comparison, but no complaints. I assure you though that she ascends and descends like a wild animal! I run one on my Bandit 29er as well, with a Pike 120 it puts the BB down below 13". You get used to timing your pedals and you don't hardly think about it.

    I don't know the measurement but I am 5'6 with a 30" inseam and there's plenty of room on my medium. It's definately the right size, the small would have been too small!

    I actually rode a large on demo as that was the only size bandit they had and the stand over was fine on that too

    I built mine up from frame only so I started with a 50mm stem. It's my first FS having ridden steel hardtails for a couple of years. It's such a fun bike, climbs really well and is a hoot down hill!

    Bandit 27.5-uploadfromtaptalk1449197491501.jpg

    Couple upgrades:

    Easton arc 27 rear, 30 front with hope hubs and blue nipples

    High roller 2.4 front & 2.3 rear

    Fork and shock tuned by push, along with the factory rebuild for the fork which gets rid of the ctd and replaces with high and low speed adjustments.

    I was very happy with the bike in stock form but now it's unbelievable how much better the ride is.

    Thanks.

    It was a partial kit only frame,fork, and wheels.

    Got it last fall once the new bikes rolled out and they unloaded these.

    Buying a brand new 2014 tomorrow for $1800: transition wheels, slx brakes, xt rear derailer, raceface crank, CTD shock and float 32 fork...selling the fork and shock and putting a ccdb inline and fox 34 or pike, not sure yet, as well as a KS lev dropper...pretty excited as I already have a 2013 Transition covert carbon and have loved if so far, it is for sale now though, time to see what this 27.5 is all about

    Will do. Is $1,800 a good price by the way, lowest I found was pricepoint with the same build for $2,100 as they're currently running a 15% off everything over $100 sale, so I assume it's a great deal. My other option is a used frame only with a ccdb for 825

    That's a great deal especially when you factor in money back from sale of fork and shock

    Great deal indeed! I got the pricepoint version on memorial day weekend when it was on sale for $2000, but it sounds like yours is a better build.

    I would highly suggest not changing the shock and sending it to push industries instead. I did it for both shock and fork result are very good. I would also say investing in new wheels first will be the most beneficial.

    Pricepoint build is different, they bought frames from Transition and built them up with SLX drivetrains and closeout or surplus parts. Wheels and tires were crazy heavy. Your build seems to be the legit "2" built that Transition had on their own website for $3649. Where did you get it from? 1x10 would be my first upgrade. I just put on a 28T narrow wide ring and left the cassette alone.

    Nice, I have a float 34 that's been push'd on my covert and it rocks, how much did they charge you for both, and do you ever feel flex on the 32 when riding it hard?

    Buying it in a few hours from a former shop owner who closed down and had this leftover, any Wheelset recommendation that won't break the bank

    Again, I think that deal is fantastic, a no brainer. I am by no means a wheelset expert, but I'd say check out the Spank Oozy Trail 295. I think they go for about $500 and they seem very light. Plus, Knolly uses them on the Endorphin so they must be awesome! BCF811, what is it about the transition wheels that you don't like? I can't find specs anywhere...

    I believe it was around 600 for both, but I had them due the factory service that also replaces the ctd with high and low speed compression adjustments which brought the price up a bit. I do notice some flex but nothing terrible.
