    This bike still amazes me.
    I set 9 new PR's on my "backyard" trail that I've been riding for about 3 years.
    Averaging 10 seconds faster on a few downhills without much drops, and minutes on my climbs.
    You are getting me all excited I just picked mine up on Wednesday and the weather has not being real ride friendly, I ll post a pic of mine from the trail. It the basic budget kit Transition released this year.
    2007'ish Heckler and 2006 Chameleon
    If anyone needs the help of a prototype/custom machinist let me know.

    well did you get your Bike yet?

    I might have to get a 34 tooth chainring soon.

    Thanks.
    They're great tires! Last time I bought em was when PricePoint had 26ers for $30 a piece I immeadiately jumped on em. I got these for around $38 each.
    Very predictable traction especially when leaned over. Suffers a little bit with the climbing and weighs a whopping 880 grams each. The tires kinda wear weird. Chunks kind of break off with the Trailstar.
    I have the Pacestar on my Nickel and have around 650 miles from July to now and still have TONS of tread in the front tire but the rear tire almost needs replacing.
    I'm hoping to get at least 300 miles for the Trailstars, and maybe replace the rear tire with Nobby Nic to help with the climbing.

    Hi, I've got a question about TransAm 29er sizing. I've got a Covert 29 which I love and am looking for a HT equivalent. I was looking at the published geometry and it seems the small sized TransAm frame has a reasonably close top tube effective length to my medium Covert. I'm 5'9" tall with a 30" inside leg. Am I completely crazy for considering the small? I'm after an agile handling bike that I'll be fitting 140mm revs to. Cheers

    I'm 5'10" with 32ish cycling in seam(30 pants in seam) and ride a medium. Personally I couldnt imagine riding a small, the medium fits good but I also think I could ride the large with no problem. I have a 120/140 rev and its way more agile set at 120, but obviously a bit more comfy on the downs at 140. It's an awesome bike once you get the fit sorted. Good luck.

    For all of you Transam owners, do you feel like you ride IN the bike or ON it? Thanks in advance for your replies!

    Definately on the bike, in that I can actually get behind the back wheel to manual through bumps much better than my last frame.

    I've been seeing a few used frames on pink bike for good prices.

    That is what I thought, the bike sounds very playful. Those frames are Very tempting.

    It is definitely a playful bike that can be pedaled well and then rip downhill. Throw on some wide carbon bars and a short stem and you'll be dialed.

    Yep. I just put a 50 mm stem and some 780 mm bars in the ol' TransAM and now it just feels so perfect.

    Has anyone with the 2012 frame taken off the big Transition sticker on the downtube? I'm thinking it would look pretty slick, but I'm afraid it's either not painted underneath or would leave a nasty residue.

    but I have yet to see a fork with an A-T-C that mimics a 120mm suspension fork. Enve seems like a 100mm suspension fork

    Well I got the bike, was putting it all together and the guy forgot to ship the rear thru axle grrrrrrr..... called him up, he told me how sorry he was and sure enough it was on his workbench, so I have a few more days to wait til I get to ride it.

    BTW the stock wheels are really heavy, I was thinking of going to something different, what are most people using?

    Building one up as single speed, with 120mm Pike fork some 30mm carbon rims, xtr brakes. Should be a great bike and my 1st steel hard tail.

    You can run 650 on it, just your BB will be a lot lower than what it is now.

    Just ask your lbs to notify you when they're in stock.
    It's the switch over from 2015 to 2016, the '15s are most likely out of stock.

    I live in charlotte too, what dealer did you use?
    While lurking I have noticed a ton of people on here riding transitions live in NC/SC. Pretty cool.

    Any recent updates on how the first generation TA 29er version rides with B+ tires? I have a 2012 frame and was considering a new 29er wheelset using i29 rims, but this B+ business has me thinking. Is B+ awesome or not? Cost would be a wash as I'm planning on a new wheelset and tires anyway.

    How does the downhill and cornering performance of say, a 2.8 Nobby Nic B+ setup compare to a larger volume 29er tire on this bike? I use my TransAm as my primary MTB for most Colorado Front Range/high country/Fruita riding. Other bikes in the stable include a Surly ICT and Misfit Dissent. I don't mind if it's slower climbing, but want to maximize downhill shredability.

    New TA 29

    Just got the photo of my new TA 29 from the shop that completed the build. XL, 130mm Reba RLT Ti fork (basically a Revelation before RS redesignated all 32mm 29'er forks over 100mm travel as Revelation), 1x10 XT drivetrain. Can't wait to throw a leg over it this week.
