    I think this bike is gonna be a quiver killer for a lot of folks.

    Some smart upgrades to the current version.....plus a bit lighter. I've pedaled one around a bit (parking lot tests only) and it felt snappy!

    the the diameter of tubes of front triangle makes it look like Small frame size. I hope they wont change eye2eye of rear shock so I can throw my Elka in there without buying new one
    They could make Large frame a bit smaller or Medium a bit larger if you know what i mean cause my M feels a bit too small and L is to big for me :/

    That definitely looks like a small which already has problems with some piggy back shocks.

    i hope they change the "line" graphics. it is a little too ibis mojo graphically. I always liked getting the sticker pack choice from past Tr.s. i'm already lining up my stuff for a swap meet this weekend and craigslist.

    The color isn't too far off either.

    The yellow one WAS Kyle's, so it was a medium. Same for Lars' rig.

    Eye to eye and shock stroke has changed - which should be good news for bigger and/or more agressive riders. Not sure about the use of a piggyback or not. These are proto's so I'm sure things could easily change.

    Longer stoke shock and slightly lower bb would dial that bike in real nice.

    Haha....sounds good Lee! Looking forward to it.

    Shirk, I believe the two things you mention are addressed along with slightly more travel as well.

    Obviously, anything could change before production, but Lars and their Italian enduro slayer were told to ride the hell out of these bikes and see how they hold up and determine what needs to be tweaked.

    I LOVE my Chilcotin, but man.....this is gonna be a difficult decision! AKA. first world problems.

    The comparison images with new and old on top of each other looks very interesting, if the "scale" of images is the same, looks like the HTA and STA are more or less the same, but chainstay is longer in the carbon version...

    Definitely want this as my next bike.. I wonder how much the frame weighs as the complete weight in features is the same as the normal covert. Maybe they just copied/pasted the info. I love how it looks like he was going to break out laughing describing the cock and balls technology! Lol

    thanks, tsuful. i was wishful thinking. hopefully the current alu version follows with 160mm rear, longer stroke and the angles the carbon one has or do you think the covert will be a carbon only offering now?

    As much as I like Transition's philosophy on bikes and what they offer, where's the love for the tall guys? I'm 6'4" and last season I rode a large TransAM (24.25" ETT) and always found it somewhat cramped (but didn't think much of it being my first All-Mountain style bike).

    Fast forward to this season and I'm on a Kona Honzo 29er with a 26" ETT and 50mm stem and I love the fit of the cockpit. On paper it sounds long and big, but quite the contrary the first minute to start to pedal. Never going back to anything shorter than 25.5".

    Even Transition's 29er bikes (a great option for tall folks) are still somewhat short in the ETT, an XL Bandit 29er is only 24.5" ETT.

    In terms of comparison, the Yeti SB66 Carbon XL comes in a 25.9/26" ETT.

    I'm all for running super short stems like a 50-70mm, but with such short ETT, it just gets uncomfortable real quick IMO.

    I am going to guess that the guys at Transition ran some sales numbers on the XL frames and realized it's not worth it financially. Trying to be something for everyone can be the difference between being in the black or in the red.

    A couple of the Transition guys are rather tall, they must be okay with these top tube numbers. Perhaps they have a preference for relatively shorter fitting bikes.
