    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.

    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've run 2.5s but havent tried 2.6s. 2.5s clear in the rear just fine.

    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.

    Amazing color. Is it stickers or did you have someone paint it?

    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 donít keep this information. WTF?
