    Shameless promo here: I've got a Bandit 29 (size L, F34, Hadley's, Flow's, full XTR Trail 2x10, MRP 2x, King HS, Blacklight Dropper, Chromag stem/bars, etc) that I'm looking to trade for a TR450. Anybody need a killer trail bike?

    Call the guys at Transition and they will help you narrow it down. They told me that it needs to be a zero stack headset that uses a 44mm upper and a 56mm lower.

    The headtube is 44mm top and 56mm bottom. You can run EC or ZS but it just effects the height of things.

    Are you guys setting up the B29 2013 for reverb stealth routing like the covert cf? Can you say clean and logical?!

    Those of you with XLs - how tall are you? The XL sizing looks a bit smaller than the big bikes I'm use to. I'm coming off an XL ENduro and I'm 6'4" with about a 35" inseam. Wish I could find one to try.

    I'm 6'3 on an XL with straight up seat post and 70mm stem, I would consider the bandit a smaller XL anyways, with the right angles in the components you can't go wrong!

    I wouldn't worry too much about not having one to try, it's the kind of bike that everyone enjoys.
    Pivot mach 6!

    Thanks Joel, good to know.

    On that note, and sense I've called all over looking for one - anyone know a shop/online retailer that has an XL in stock? Haven't been able to locate one after numerous calls/emails.

    Thanks

    A carbon covert 29er would be the best.

    I have been thinking about a Covert Two9 also. I would be stoked to see it available in carbon and AL.

    One last thing TB: please somehow cajole a fork maker to supply a proper 150-165mm travel, 20mm TA fork that will roll a Krampus 29+ sized tire.

    Mmmm, a Covert Two9 with a 29+ up front...

    It never hurts to ask, right?

    Seriously though, a few people here were skeptics and a few people wanted something like this badly. Compared to 26 bikes, the 29 really does attack aggressive terrain well. On a pumpy jumpy trail the 26 wins without question, but in the tech and gnar the big wheels definitely help you pick aggressive lines and come out of sections with more speed.

    We were initially pretty tight lipped about this project, but once everyone realized how much fun the bike was going to production was a no brainer.

    Keep an open mind and give it a shot. Maybe it's for you, maybe it isn't...
    Picked mine up (black/white) from York Cycleworks 10 days ago and right now I can't ride it enough.

    Having had some 20 odd MTB's in my 65 years I know the difference between "new bike syndrome" and something that is genuinely different. Everything you say above is correct, it's a no brainer when it comes to techy terrain.

    Not sure which terrain you had in mind when you designed this but from where I am sitting I doubt you could have built a bike that better suits my riding requirment which is predominately trail centres and the NYM (North Yorkshire Moors) here in the UK.

    Not had a bike spice my life up so much since I switched from a rigid bike to a Giant Boulder HT all those years go. THIS BIKE IS CLASS.

    An in-depth rider review of one hell of a good bike... total mountain tamer

    And here is a short edit I put together to show that the Bandito loves to get down with roots, rocks, and rhythm.

    Here's to the big wheeled shred sleds! Cheers!

    Absolutely sick scenery!! How long is that whole track on Mt. Fromme? So jealous.

    And definitely an interesting POV from the downtube mount vs. the standard helmet mount videos.

    Thanks eurospek! Glad you liked it. Ladies Only is only a few miles long. I threw in a little segment of the trail below ladies only (practically a continuation) which I can't remember the name of, something stupid, (about .5-.75 mile) and the video finished with "Skull" which is a couple miles long.

    All told, the total ride took me, on my virgin ride with scouting stunts and a few tumbles, about 30 minutes top to bottom.

    One of the best rides of a 3+ week biking road trip through BC. Goooood stuff

    That is a really impressive run on Ladies Only for what i assume was your first time down the trail! It took me quite a few laps before I was riding it that well. My Bandit 29 also loves Ladies! Erm the trail. I'm a little faster on the TR250 but the Bandit is totally capable on the gnar!

    My build is finally complete...

    I was a little disappointed with the weight even though I'm not a weight weenie by any means. Pretty much a full XTR build with the exception of the cranks. I'm guessing the bulk of the weight is coming from the wheels. Those tires are 2.4's front and rear.

    How heavy?
    My Bandit 26 with x9 build with Revolution 25s, Reverb, Havoc stem and Spank bars comes in at a touch over 30lbs

    Like I said...I'm not a weight weenie. My build ended up at just under 30lbs. I was really hoping it would turn out closer to 28lbs. Still, I guess for a FS 29er it's not bad.

    FWIW the build looks great and I'm sure the ride matches

    Those 2.4 purgatory's are definitely a stout tire. That said, I really like mine on my TA 29'er.

    I see "just under 30 lbs." for a really capable trailbike and think that's just about right!
