    12 miles and 1900 ft elevation gain and hurt more.

    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.

    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.

    So Where's the Trans AM 29er?-securedownload.jpg

    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.
