    I was thinking that might be the next step as well. I'll keep my 26" TA for now, though.

    Awesome!
    When I heard rumors of a 29 Transition I was thinking a TA, I was really suprised it was a bandit.

    Any revisions planned for the 26" TransAM??? Only thing I can think of is a dropper-friendly seattube which in any case would happen, I would be pretty about it.

    Yup, but thankfully I'm in the Midwest with little hills to bomb. The seat stays up about 90% of the time.

    Is it safe to assume that the frame will be steel and weigh the same?

    I have to say that I have not been a proponent of the 29" wheel on anything, but after thinking on it a TransAM 29er that I could run the new fox 34 and a dropper post on would be a bike I'd be interested in trying.

    Yup, I've been toying with building up a 29er for next season, either the new TransAM 29er or Canfield Yelli Screamy.

    +1 Euro, I was looking at those two bikes also. Here in MO it's more xc than am but still like the idea of having a rockin' 29r to take any where. I really really want a TA but might hold and wait to for the their 29r. I'm considering the Spec 29r EVO ht but really want to try a steel frame. Plus you don't see any Canfields or Trans in Missouri.

    Nice new red color for the TransAM as well, on the wall over there.

    BTW, is that an OE Fox 34 fork? Seems to be missing Kashima. Either way, the 29er TransAM will be my next project.

    Any more details on this? Like geo, weight, etc... I was planning on a Yelli Screamy build, but this looks interesting

    Full info with specs, geo and price will be on our website soon. A couple notes...

    ~44mm headtube allows you to run tapered forks (The 29 is designed around a 120mm fork)
    ~New custom seatube for 30.9mm seatpost and Reverb compatibility
    ~New 142mm x 12mm dropouts with optional 135mm x 10mm and horizontal dropouts availabile seperately.

    All those changes apply to the TransAM 26 as well. The fork in the pic is a 120mm Fox 32 F29 without Kashima. That is the spec fork for the bike and the bike shown is the stock build.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the info, definitely nice changes all around.

    Being designed around 120mm fork, can it also run the new Fox 34 or any 140mm 29er fork that matter or will it be too much for the geo?

    And idea on availability?

    I'm this close to either selling my 26er TransAM completely or start parting it out and getting a 29er AM hardtail, either this new TransAM or the Canfield Yelli Screamy.

    Thanks for any help!

    Eurospek,

    I'm pretty much doing the same thing as you. I was all set on the Yelli Screamy, but a Trans Am 29er could definitely change my mind. I just really need to sell my other hardtail 29er so I can start building...

    It definitely could run the 140mm 34 or other similar forks, but in our opinion the travel is excessive for the front end of a 29 HT. In reality, with the big wheels, the 120mm fork feels kind of similar to the 140mm on a TransAM26. To run the 140mm fork it would be similar to a 160mm fork on the TransAM 26... if that makes sense. Kind of a big fork, but if you like the way that feels then go for it! Geo change wouldn't be that drastic and warranty would not be voided.

    Available before the end of the calendar year!

    ^ Was just coming here to post that. Ugh, so many decisions lol. This, the Canfield Yelli Screamy or the Banshee Paradox which also is getting updated for 2012.

    ^ Sent you a PM, I was informed of the updates today when I got a response back from emailing Banshee about the Paradox.

    And I'm curious of the geo for this 29er TransAM.

    So the dropout design is different from the TransAM 26?

    Another thing: bottle mounts?

    Thank you!

    Same spot as in the 26er. On the downtube. Check the video, you can see them.

    What about frame price? Is it going stay down near $600, or has it gone up due to new dropouts, etc?

    From Transitions response above, it sounds like the new version of the TA26 will have the same (new) dropoouts. Can't wait to see this!

    twentynineiches.com stated, based on 120mm fork, it has 68° headangle, 73,5° seatangle and 17" chainstays, with 54mm bb-drop...

    sonst like transition found the geometry sweet spot there

    I like this bike I was looking at the Kona Honzo, but this one looks better. Any other colors or just the blue? Don't get me wrong. I like the blue, but it is bright; however, I could easily get use to it. The bike features look that good!
