    That is a good question and we do not have the resources to test a Rohloff hub on our frames (but I wish we did - cool hubs). To the best of my knowledge a Rohloff hub will work excatly the same on our Trans AM as it would on any horizontal dropout frame.

    Here is a detail of the dropout configuration...

    Thanks for the reply and I understand the problem well... I've been wanting to try a Rohloff on the Balfa for years but funding always goes to what I break rather than what I would like to try

    It's probably a pipe dream anyway now as the Rohloff hub really is mega bucks in this day and age

    Hey guys!
    This is my first post here. I'm a french rider, and soon I'll get a TransAM too. I'd like to finish to build it up in March, for my birthday...What I can say first is that it will be a medium size, for a white frame.

    TransAM we can see here are very nice, let's see mine in few weeks...

    It's the same thing with the Pike (look at the TBC website).

    Email transition and let them know your issue. They've got some headset pieces that they can send you to give you the extra clearance.

    aye i knew about the issue with the pike, but the folks at transition claimed that the frame was designed around a fox 32.

    I feel like a bit of a fake posting on the Transition Forums among the likes of slope style/free riders, extreme jumpers and hard core trail riders but I really love my new TransAM so I guess I have as much right to post my bike as anyone.


    ps it may of been one of the first TransAMs to be built up in Australia.

    Hehe, thanks!
    Some parts will change : stem&bar for longer ones, 180 front disc (mistake from magura...), and still waiting for the Altira titanium seat post.
    Maybe some others modifications around the crankset...I'll run it in 1x9, so...
    To follow!

    Anybody know if there's frame interference with a Z1 Light? I'm guessing not since the crown is taller than just about everything else, but I just wanna be sure.

    Where did you all get your frames? From a local shop or an online vendor?

    I've been wanting to build a burly hardtail and this seems to be the one. It looks sick and I like Transition as a company from what I've read and seen on their website.

    Sick! Mine's coming in on Thursday. White, Large + old school white revolution wheels, you know, the ones that looked good. New ones not so much. I think it's the OCD in my brain always wanting symmetry in my decals.


    Ordered from a bike shop, but if you don't have a dealer near you, you can call them up directly and order that way I believe.

    Sexiest wheels I've ever seen. I love the lettering and how the two black decals cover most of the rim. Glad I bought mine in 2007 with my Preston and have held up perfectly (knock on wood).

    I know exactly why Transition changed it though. You could never read the old style. The new ones are readable from a good distance.

    Bikes are a marketing platform after all.

    Ya i like the old style rims a lot more than the new ones, but didn't have much of a choice buying them now.

    I got all my stuff through a local shop, they stock a few transition frames and goodies and I just happened to walk in the day they got that one in haha. I'm assuming you've checked dealer locator? A lot of shops don't stock transition stuff but will order it for you.
