    Hey

    Had one (V.2). But have a Bandit now. I'm sure that doesn't help though.

    I think Chucks Bikes in Morrisville Vt stocks some Transition bikes. Might try giving them a call.

    Yes they do. I've picked up a few frames from them.

    I've got an '07, but they have changed a bit since then :-)

    I was there a few weeks ago. I didn't remember seeing any built Transition bikes, but it's early season so maybe they got more stock since then.

    The shop is amazing - scruffy, messy, dark, and just packed with bikes and random parts. Just enough in the way of typical everyday bikes and gear, plenty of oddball new and used bikes, and parts after parts just piled on shelves.

    You should have asked. Hank probably had his personal bike kicking around. He's a great guy and the shop is very cool.

    Give Doon at Green Mt Bikes in Rochester, VT a call. I know they're a dealer and he said they'll have more Transition bikes in stock this year. FWIW, I've ridden one and they're great bikes - extremely versatile. It's a good bunch of guys working there too with a passion for riding (TBC and GMB).

    Meh, I'm not in the market for a bike. He helped me out on a couple of stems though: $15 for a couple of used 25.4mm jobs for my son's bike and mine.

    Definitely go to chucks bikes. 1 802.888.7642. Hank (owner & one of the mechanics) is a helluva rider and a really good guy. Last time I saw him on the trail he had a covert, and would probably at least let you pedal it around outside.

    I'm sorry, I actually mixed you up with the original poster. My mistake.
