    Transition Covert 27.5 review - not for dirt roadies

    For the personal branding


    Layman?s Review: The Transition Covert 27.5? All-Mountain Sleigh Ride | Teton Gravity Research


    I don't like the compressed display format at all.


    Just had the bike out in Leavenworth. Now that's a town where I'd be interested to see tourist numbers. Xanadu, Tres Hombres, Minnow Loop. Missed Freund and Devils and the alpine trails that aren't open yet high.














    Earlier rides in the season in Pemberton and North Van

    Thanks for the review! I've been searching for info on this bike and haven't found much.

    It is a pretty heavy bike, how does the bike feel when climbing? I know some bikes the weight is distributed differently and can feel lighter (or heavier) than the numbers.

    Its not a sprinter for sure. Pretty active climber which means you've got to work the terrain - not a sit and spin machine by any means. But I can get up a lot of stuff on it per the video. To be honest it climbs like it weighs
