    I just received the frame this past Monday, and have just been able to "mock" the frame up to see which size I would feel comfortable on riding in my area. The large is just right for my 5'11" frame. I will probably use a 70-75mm stem with a 40mm rise wide Gravity Carbon DH bar...don't know which brand of stem. It will have all XT drivetrain group, American Classic AM wheelset, Fox Talas 34mm fork, Fox RP-23 rear shock...this bike is exactly the bike I wanted to build. Thanks Cam, Carl, Kyle, and the good folks at Transition!

    Here some pics of the "mock" up build. I am glad that I had both sizes to compare. We have one more medium pewter frame in stock, and will be getting another black/white medium frame coming in March!

    I put the headset, fork, stem, handlebars, seatpost and saddle on the frame to figure out what size I needed. Large is perfect on this frame!!!


    The pics show a Panaracer Rampage on the front, and a Kenda Nevegal 2.2 on American Classic AM wheels with the 135mm spacing adapters (they work great)


    I think that the Maxxis Ardent 2.4 will be a great fit front and rear...I will put those on the rims and see?


    The white wheels with the red hubs just pop...on this frame! I am going to use SRAM X.0 front and rear 185mm brakes, and all XT drive train.


    I'm glad that Transition makes the frame universal in the rear-spacing with the needed drop out adapters (142mm spacing standard).


    I hope to finish the build by the middle of next week...already the 2012 bicycle season has started...we were slammed in the shop today! I really believe that this will build up to less than 30lbs. pretty easily without sacrificing any necessary strength...we'll see!

    [QUOTE=I'm the same... 5'11". It has a 70mm stem on it. I thought 60mm would be too short for my taste. We'll see how it goes...[/QUOTE]

    My Beauty!!!

    I just started to consider a 29er about a week and a half ago. I come from a DH/FR/AM background and really liked all the numbers surrounding this bike. I can confirm that the Bandit is pure awesomeness. The only 29er I've ever rode was about 7 years ago- a Canyon rigid SS. So looking to reduce my stable I'm selling my 2011 Enduro and P2 street bike- enter the Bandit. I looked for a longer travel 29er with trail bike geometry and arrived at this bike.

    The only changes I've made are the Shimano XT brakes and a Command post. Frame size is a large, - weight is around 32lbs

    Oh, mind the crazy mess, I work at a dental lab

    Hot tip! Loosen your QR and spin the post a full 360 (I think counter clockwise is best?). That way when your post goes up and down the housing will move like a spring instead of bowing out like that.

    Nice update to the stock build!

    Thanks, I'll did it. I can't thank you guys enough for a totally fun bike. It's just amazing how it rolls and helps me climb better- I need as much help climbing as possible! I let my buddy ride it for a bit and you may have a new customer (trying to share the cool aid)!

    Here's my XL bandit!

    I've had this beast for about 5 weeks now and it has been a blast! Now if only the snow would melt again around Boulder so I can take it out again.

    Stock build from Transition with following upgrades:
    Shimano XT brakes
    Thomson 50mm stem
    Sunline V1.05 bars 745mm
    Specialized Command Post Blacklite
    Specialized Henge Saddle
    Shimano M647 spds
    Blackspire Stinger dual ring guide

    Weight comes in around 32 lbs

    ^ Nice build. How tall are you and how's the fit? The high saddle and 38mm rise bars lead me to believe you're tall.

    Hah. You would be correct I am tall. 6'5" to be exact.

    The fit is actually quite good. It was a tad cramped until I installed the command post which has an offset. In the future I may even drop the bars to 25mm rise for a bit better climbing. (Some new red deity dirty 30's perhaps)

    I should also mention that I tend to like "smaller" feeling bikes coming from a DH background. And you may say that an XL 29er is by no means small, but I assure you that as far as XL frames go the bandit is a tad on the small side.

    Nice FJDAN, I just added the Blackspire stinger to my bike as well, lost a chain on every ride before the purchase. Is that typical with 2x10 systems?

    That sounds a bit odd.. is it dropping during shift?

    And also, when the cables stretched on my front derailleur being a new bike and all.. even with the lower chain guide it still dropped chains until I re-adjusted.

    Not particularly.. I wouldn't expect chain drops to be any more frequent on a 2x10 system than that of a 3x10. I depends on your drivetrain components of course, and especially your derailleurs chain tension. However I was actually thoroughly impressed with the stock X7 drivetrain from Transitions build, its shifts quite well and I've only dropped a chain a few times- those times were only on really rough (DH bike worthy) descents. I was also pleasantly surprised to find carbon on the X7 derailleur, supposedly SRAM has upped their lineup for 2012 and the X7 is technically comparable to the old X9.

    Now with the Blackspire Stinger installed, I don't expect to drop a chain again. Although I have not yet had a chance to test it out because it won't stop snowing in Boulder

    IMO, the slight weight penalty of a chainguide is definitely well worth it if you plan on riding rough terrain.

    GREAT looking bike swaneedawg! Wish I was finished with mine. Very, very close

    Hope to be in the 28lb range...but may have to go with different tires to achieve it. The HD tires are between 1.8 and 2lbs ea in 2.35 which is what i tend to ride most often.

    What size are those Panaracers?

    Like the DTSwiss rear axle...is that the 10mm or 12mm?

    How many inches is that stem spacer and how does that feel currently?

    How many inches did you cut the fork steer tube?

    Thx!

    2.35's with tubes (and Stan's in the tubes) don't trust tubeless...I could have used less spacers...I will change that later. I am stoked with riding this bike! I cannot emphasize that enough. If you like to ride techy trails in tight quarters with some climbing, a lot of tech sections, and nasty dh sections...this bike can handle it all! Good luck with your build...get some aspirin for after the ride...you'll cramp in the face from smiling so much!!!

    ...and @ Lowball...the stem spacing is currently at 20 (2x10mm), and the headset top piece (close to 20mm as well). The bars are about 50mm rise so I'll end up cutting the steerer tube with just one 20mm spacer (I'll leave enough at the top to stack a ten if need be...it felt like it was just a tad high, but just lowered my body when climbing. Enjoy your new ride!

    ...sorry for the phone pic but...

    My frame arrived at the shop last week!!! They were awesome enough to send me a picture, as I'm outta town until next week!

    Will keep you posted on the build. So stoked on this bike!

    No, the dropped chain would occure during downhill runs over rough rock gardens. To be fair I've had trouble keeping a chain on all of my bikes. I ran a Hammerschmidt on my Enduro which I loved because I never lost a front chain ever.

    This bike is on my shortlist of 29er's to buy. How are you guys finding the ride? Are you running 120 or 140 up front and why? How does the Bandit 29er compare with other 29ers?

    Your opinions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    sneek peak

    King BB and P30




    Rear setup




    Put some pedals and a chain on the scale along with the bike...looking like 30lbs with the Schwalbe HD in 2.35 (1.86lb and 2lbs - two different compounds).

    I like the blue hubs with the green frame. Very Factory Kawasaki.

    Has anyone here tried converting the stock Transition Revolution 29er wheels to tubeless?

    I'm considering using the Stans "all-mountain" size 29er rim strips to convert. The strips are 26mm in width which i figure should fit the inner diameter of the 28mm rims pretty well.

    I will likely be running specialized purgatory in the front and captain in the back with the tubeless setup.

    She's finally home! Large Green. Sorry about the crappy phone pics but was too excited!

    MANDATORY couch pictures...

    Had the Chris King inset and fork/stem installed at the shop.
    The fork is a Black Float - through Transition. Looks beefy, almost like a Fox 36! Finish is beautiful.
    Went with the same stem as Transition has on their build - kinda keep the geo the same.

    Waiting on wheels and drivetrain... come on USPS and CanadaPost!!!

    The green looks MUCH better live. Vibrant, not as lime green as it shows in the pics.
    Hope to have it built in two weeks. Will report back on weight and hopefully ride.






    Edit:
    Added a couple bits in the meantime and took a picture without flash.

    I love the way it looks without the flash. Can't wait to see this one built up...
