    My only complaint is the noise associated with this bike. I have put mastic tape everywhere the chain may come in contact with the frame but still get some clatter when hitting a series of bumps, like braking bumps. Otherwise, this bike is great.
    Dude! Chain hitting chainstay in the bumps? I had that on my Evil (it was clanking when on the rough fast) because the chain rode super close to the chainstay in the small cog. I added some window insulation foam tape to the top of the chainstay and it quieted the bike down substantially.

    Black 2017 Alloy Patrol
    Didn't think to ask for Black Ano fork

    About 500 miles in and no complaints, other then I kind of wish it was 26".

    gentlemen, have any of you tried 2.6 tires front and back on the original Patrol? 2.5 fits in the fork, probably, but not sure in back. i'm wondering if anyone has tried 2.6s...

    I rode 2.6s on my 2017 Scout and they fit great. A customer of ours is running front and rear 2.6 on his 2017 Patrol and they fit great as well.

    The Turbine cinch has an adjuster on the non drive side so there should be no need for spacers on the crank itself. You'll have to run a spacer on the drive side of the bb at least (standard for 73mm threaded bb). I've found that the adjuster on the Turbine crank doesn't work well if it's threaded out too far so sometimes we run a 2.5mm spacer on the non drive side as well to account for that.

    Hello to all
    This is my 2017 patrol carbon.

    By the way, do any of you know the colour code of the TR Blue color?

    I have already contacted transition but they said they dont keep this information. WTF?

    I'm trying to decided between a 150 or 170 dropper for my Large Patrol Carbon. I'm 6 foot even. I want to slam it as much as possible.

    I know I can basically slam a 150 OneUp dropper all the way down, but I'm not sure if the height will be enough in the up position. If i get the 170 (and adjust it lower later), its shaft base is slightly longer, and I won't be able to be slammed as much.

    Anyone 6 foot riders with a large frame and a 150mm dropper? I'm unable to try sizes right now in person since the bike isn't built yet and I'm still waiting on parts.

    I am 6 foot and i am on a Large Patrol with a 150mm dropper (KS LEV). i think you can easily fit a 170 dropper. Have a look at the blue patrol photo a couple of posts above.

    Finished up my '19 Patrol yesterday! Just got out for a quick spin, but so far its not hugely different from my Scout. Rides a little bigger, but for a 160/170 bike I was pretty surprised. Can't wait to get it out into some proper gnar to really see what it can do! I have a cush core set to try out and a chainguide to still go on at some point. OneUp post is pretty sweet, nice to have a 142mm drop.

    About to pull a trigger on a used almost new 2017 patrol. Just want to be sure I'm making the right choice over the scout. Will be doing pisgah and dupont on the weekends so long climbs followed by mild to wild depending on the day I also will be doing bike parks atleast once maybe twice a month. I prefer steep tech over flowy. Now the kicker, I live in charlotte nc so during the week is mellow xc trails, there is some extra credit features on a few of the trails to keep things fun so will I hate my life on the patrol in xc type trails or will it work well enough to keep my fitness up for the weekend rides I actually enjoy?

    Dont plan on setting uphill PRs, the patrol will only make you fitter not faster on uphills. Look forward to the downs, thats where it will shine like no other!

    These are exactly my intentions I am no record setter on the climbs nor do I desire to be. As long as I can pedal around some xc loops on occasion after work I'll be happy

    Patrol build thread-image1.jpg

    NBD: Oh baby! NX build for now. Upgraded to 2.8's on 38mm rims and Zee brakes after this pic was taken. Waiting on full Deity cockpit (bars/stem/pedals) to finish her out.

    By far the most stable bike at speed I have ever been on. Corners like a dream, loves to be airborne, and the damn thing climbs really well!

    Hello to all Transition fans. Soon I am gonna be a fresh owner of a Transition patrol 2016. Looking forward on it so much. But can you please help me with the fork.. Would be a fork cutted steer to 175 mm enough for this bike, when head tube is 120 mm? Thank you so much for you answer

    Should work: 120mm + 10mm (cane creek 40- 9mm top, 1mm bottom) + 35mm stem (e.g. Spank) = 165. since you have also usually a gap ~2-3mm between the top cap and the steerer youll have 10-13mm space to play around. When you use a 40mm stem around 5-8mm - which is oke.
    In the worst case youll have to try bars with different rise.
    But please: verify that headset stack height- there are so many headset variations and Im not 100% sure if the 10mm are correct.
    In doubt write Sam @ Transition.

    Patrol build thread-patrol2.jpg

    Setup as a Patrol Plus now.

    Bike is super stable in hard cornering, even when you are sliding out. It is also super poppy on jumps and the landings are also very stable. It carries more speed to send it harder and further.

    Man, IDK, 2.5 DHF is pretty tight on the rear and has def F'D up my rear triangle from rocks. 2.6 may fit but if you ride anything other than dry dirt will probably suck.

    I've been on my Patrol for two seasons now, coming from a Nomad 3. The Patrol is a really well-balanced bike. It climbs good, not great, but its a 160/65 bike so I dont expect it to. The bike does everything really well, can smash, jump, and its way more flickable (if that a word) that my Nomad. I would go for it, I think you will be stoked. You can even build it up for more all mountain riding since its such a well rounded bike.

    My Party Animal

    I'm finally accustomed to my 2017 Patrol. Transition replaced my Bandit frame after the warranty expired.

    She's a beauty, black on turquoise 12 speed GX and a Mattoc pro leading the way with Code RSC Brakes. I have felt Nirvana with the RSCs and there is no substitute. I need to find the post pic link.

    since there's some original Patrol love going on in here..... i have an alloy 2016 and it's amazing bike. i also have an original Smuggler from their first shipment. both bikes are awesome. i used to ride the Smuggler 80% of the time because it's such a great all arounder and i just wasn't that used to small wheels and i'm very tall. now i ride the Patrol 80% of the time. so nimble and such a crusher. it was a custom frame up build when new and every part has been replaced this spring at great cost. new custom wheelset on Hope hubs, new Fox 36 factory, Vorsprung tractive on shock and 200mm drop Fall Line, XT 11 sp drivetrain, Turbine cranks, Sram 11-42 xdome ca$$sette. DT Swiss XM521 rims with 2.6 tires. it's a wicked trail bike and a beast. i'll get a photo up soon.

    >>>>SOLD. Mods remove if needed.<<<<

    Mods, feel free to remove this sorta post if it isn't allowed. Just trying to help fellow patrol bros out I'm rarely on the forums anymore.

    I'm selling a barely used Fox DHX2 coil shock in the Pinkbike classifieds. Comes with 2 coils, 500 Fox SLS, 400 cheap fox coil. It fits the 8.5x2.5 shock sizing (was for a 2016 Patrol Carbon). I originally got it for my new build earlier this year, put a few rides on it, and swapped it back out. Maybe has 10 rides on it combined from me and the last owner, probably less honestly. The last owner did the same thing: tried it for a new build, went back to air right after. I ended up sticking with the air shock and this DHX2 has been sitting around doing nothing. Search Patrol DHx2 on there and you should find it.
