    Transition eschews Kashima Gold

    Like many of you, I'm pretty jazzed by the new SBG bikes coming this fall.

    An interesting side note is that none of their bikes have Kashima Gold on them--they are speccing the Elite forks and shocks everywhere.

    Personally, I like this choice--essentially the same performance of the Factory shocks without the gold styling cues. Black is the new black.

    I went full Kashima on my Nomad.......love the Kashima treatment. Bars, fork, shock, chain was gold, and later put on Kashima colored grip clamps.

    Sold the bike awhile ago.

    Looking to pick up a 2018 Scout. That Nomad replaced my 2015 Scout.
