    So much better than the monarch. More controlled, more grip and lets you go faster

    Where'd you get the frame? How does the new one feel for small bump compliance/plushness? My covert doesn't feel like it has the travel that it does.

    Same question as sfr4dr: Anyone know of a dealer selling a large Suppressor?

    I'll drop an email to Transition as well.

    Got it from Transition as a warranty frame.

    I would call it a big improvement over the Covert not just in small bump compliance, but just in general, overall, I like it much more than I did the Covert.

    Anyone seen any Suppressor frames in size M for sale or know of someone who'd be willing to part with theirs for a reasonable price?

    Hmm, so I'm probably misunderstanding something about geometry, but does that mean that running 26" wheels on a patrol with a 170mm fork would result in about the same bb height as a suppressor?

    edit: I guess it's not quite that simple. Are there any clever tools to calculate the bb height of a Patrol with 26" wheels and a 170mm fork?

    https://bikegeo.muha.cc

    Depending on the tires used, bb height on a Patrol with 26" and 170 fork combo should be around 430mm. Suppressor and Patrol height is listed at 439mm with their respective 26" and 27.5" tires.
