    Get the double specific SLX. You are running a bash anyway, right?

    Yeah, I'm running the bash with the 2x10. My only problem is right now I'm living in New Mexico and none of the bike shops where I'm at carry any 2x10 stuff. What is the "double specific' SLX? Is that different than just the standard SLX? I appreciate the help man

    The double specific 9 speed front derailleur is the M665 and M667. The cage is smaller and won't interfere with the frame and tire. I use one myself. No experience with 10 speed, but that part is M675 and M676.

    Does this mean that one would have trouble running a triple in the front on the TransAm?

    A triple? You're on the wrong frame then.

    Thanks for the insight bud. Hopefully you can help me with another question I have as well...I'm wondering what would I need to do to swap my old Quadra5 over to my TA?


    This is my first build and I'm still trying to figure out my setup. You've definitely made me feel comfortable asking questions on the forum....

    I don't even know what that is.

    But the TransAM begs for a 1x9 or 1x10 with bashguard set up. I ran 2x9 on my old TransAM and never really used the big ring. This season I am 1x9 on all my bikes and I'm just lost at why people need 3x9 or even 3x10 for bikes in the All-Mountain segment. 1x9 and 1x10 will be plenty fine.

    It's this hot piece of equipment:



    ...and I was kidding.

    I appreciate your comments. At the end of the day I'm likely going to go 2x10 for this build and if i don't find the big ring necessary, I'll do 1 with a bash.

    Granny is plenty useful on the local fireroad grinds. You know, to get to good runs downhill.

    Big ring is evil and very dangerous for any spirited riding: Calf meet chainring. (required viewing if you still run it on your AM bike)

    AFAIK RWS is X-12 (Syntace) and Trans-AM is e-thru (Shimano).

    I have tried to run 10x135 RWS on my TransAm (pre-12mm), it was a tad short, switched that wheel to 10mm bolt-on.

    Yes, this is true. Same concept, but slightly different standards (axle interfaces). Choose a Shimano or Transition option and you'll be all set.

    I have a 2011 TA and would love to know, will a 27.5" wheel fit in the back? I want some new forks for it, which also means a new front wheel at least.

    Thinking about building up a Trans Am SS. I want to run a rigid fork, probably suspension corrected 80mm carbon or steel. Would this work? Seems like most folks' SS's are running 140mm+.
