    Here is mine





    Great bike but the freehub broke after two months. Transition sent me a replacement free of charge immediately but I am sure it will break again because the inner walls of the freehub are too thin. Perhaps Hope or Chris King will be more suitable to my riding (and way more expensive )





    Am I the only one having this problem?

    Still really enjoying the bike. Ditched the 2x10 and put a chain guide on it.

    +1 nice looking bike, I've thought about doing the same to mine once the paint starts scuffing up...called around and apparently there's a place in town (Toronto) that'll strip the frame for $60 via chemical dip, not too bad at all...

    The Bandit29 uses a Zero Stack headset top and bottom. I'm not sure that they is a manufacturer making an external cup lower headset for 56mm diameters.

    Nice build! Question for you. How many spacers did you have to use on the drive side for your XT crank and BB to work?

    I tried mine during the build but even with one spacer on the drive side it was way to close for comfort with the chainstay. I then installed the sram BB and crank and that had more space away from the chainstay.

    I took a quick look and I only had to use one spacer for the XT Cranks.

    2013 Bandi 29 XL
    Reverb post
    Fox 34 at 130mm
    XT brakes
    and the rest is build kit that came with it. Still need to cutdown some hoses and maybe a Stans/Hadley wheelset next year. I gotta say that after 3 rides I am thoroughly impressed. The best way to descride the ride is FUN! I don't know what magic ingredient you put in the mixing bowl at Transition, but this bike is dialed.

    It loves rocks!

    Seems heavier than I would have thought, for such a light build. Looks awesome!

    Pic from early summer I came across again! A muddy good time that day. I remember it well because I came face to face with a big black bear while by myself in an area I didn't know.

    Haha you always take great shots, do you ride mud often and does it take a toll on your reverb?

    I ride year round (though less in winter) and Vancouver winters are pretty muddy! This is the second winter the bike has seen and (knock on wood) the Reverb has required zero maintenance and works as well as new.

    Thanks on the photo quality... I have a decent camera and enjoy using it

    what about embedding a smaller pic, even if the frame is XL?

    Can someone with 2013 B29 (with a 120mm fork) measure your static bottom bracket height? Trying to decide whether I can get away with an angled headset or not. Thanks.

    Thanks, I am really happy with this thing so far. It turned out just as I hoped, light enough to do some casually competitive racing, yet still a blast as a trail bike!
