    I'm guessing it's just a re-badged Traitor Cycles Crusade.

    Not that that's a bad thing.

    I wonder how it would do as a road bike/gravel bike/all around fun cyclocross bike? Wheels for the road and a set of wheels for the dirt?

    Yes. It definitely looks like the same frame

    But I would buy the Transition any day. This bike may be mine in the future.

    The reason I said it wasn't a bad thing is because Traitor Cycles is Transition Bikes.

    I guess? I'm not entirely sure why they don't have links between their sites or even mention this anywhere. Transition Bikes, Traitor Cycles and Anvl Components are all the same company.

    Hey everyone - all the comments so far are correct.

    Transition is our original brand; Traitor and ANVL are both independent companies run out of our same office. How much to integrate the brands has been a long standing subject of debate. In the original days when Traitor was launched, we were afraid that it could alienate some of the Transition customers. Probably wouldn't have been an issue, but hindsight is 20/20. Now all three brands are run separately, but everything is under the same roof.


    For the Rapture, this is the same frame as the Traitor Crusade. We felt that this frame was something that Transition customers would be interested in as well and it should be available via Transition dealers and distributors as well as the Traitor sales channels.

    We do not have a complete bike or build kit option for the Crusade this season.


    Thanks everyone!

    Really?! "Trans-Fat" sounds like a fatbike perfect offering.

    But maybe a Rapture frame first!

    Transition Rapture CX Bike

    I gotta say much more excited about a cx/commuter bike than a fat bike. I rented a fat bike for the snow and I wasn't impressed. They would be great on groomed trails tho.

    It would kind of be overlap in my bikes, so I guess it's for the better.
