    TransAm 26'er going away in 2014?

    been wanting to pull the trigger for awhile- just found out the next round of lay-offs are coming so I may need to hold off (again) hopefully they will still be available in a few months...
    I guarantee I will never, ever be accused of bringing sexy back...

    Rumour is they are going to 650b. No word yet if it will interchangable with 26" wheels.

    Personally I hope they have both but with that said I secretly hope for a 275. I'm not one to jump on a bandwagon but a 275 on a hardtail just seems to make sense to me. For my squish I'll stick with 26, but if transition makes a 275 hardtail trans am I'd be the first in line with cash in hand!

    And hopefully if they do it's a frame built specifically around the 275 wheel size so it performs as it should, none of this swappable crap. It's a great idea on paper and an even better selling point for the average consumer but it won't handle nearly as good as it should.
