    Nice to see the return of the white TransAM. Although this brown Covert is quite hideous. Transition needs more matte paint like the black TR450 and less of this gloss stuff.

    So there is a covert29 in the place of where the b29 used to be (at 140mm)... So the b29 will drop to 120mm and a steeper HA?!

    Any pics of those?

    i'v found this page on the german distributers website... NS Bikes Bikes Season 2011 it mentions different setups of the b29 and c29...

    That brown is terrible. The matte colours are always better. It would be cool to see a raw Covert though

    i get the brown w/sky blue thing they're going for. It has that old skool SE PK Ripper action but it's not quite there for me. Maybe leave out the random stripes and a different brown? no gloss. I guess i'm gettin old but I still like the straight lines of my old Covert more. I bet the ride is dialled as always.

    Yeah, I'd like to see what happens with the Bandit 29 as well as keeping it at 130mm seems to make to too close the the covert 29.

    In this thread Brand new model... Bandit 29 transition mentioned that there would be "3 different 29er's in the lineup this year" so I'm really interested in what else is yet to be unveiled.

    Maybe they are just referring to three total 29" frames - TransAm, Bandit, and now Covert.

    I actually really like the brown (not sure on the blue bits and decals though). I would really like to see some pics of all the TR bikes at the booth.
    Maintain internal heights.

    Unless I'm missing something, I believe that would be the Trans Am, Bandit and Covert.

    Yeah, you guys are probably right. Still, I'm interested to see what changes were made to the Bandit.

    Is anyone else having trouble getting onto the Transition website? I keep getting a "HTTP Error 503" message.

    Hopefully they are updating it with all the new Eurobike stuff.

    New paint. This is the only pic I could find. Waiting to see the other options cause it's going to be my new DH frame for next year.

    Why blue on most of the new frames? Not cool.

    I concur. And that dual color TR250 isn't all that great either. These frames look best in single bright ass colors. Or matte.

    i'm liking the idea of 120mm b29 and then get the carbon covert as well. nice light xc/trail bike and then an enduro bike. Now where did i bury that money?

    From the pics on one of the links above , it looks as though the B29 has a longer top tube too.
