    More Quick Questions About The Tranny Vagrant

    I asked at the end of my last thread and no one caught on. So, here are two last questions about the Vagrant before I totally dedicate and buy the frame.

    • How does it climb and pedal?

    • Where can I get one online?

    • Whats a decent headset that will fit the 1.5 if one isn't included with the frame? It needs to beable to fit the 1 1/8 steerer of a Manitou Nixon too.

    Thanks again...

    climbs like a champ.. stiff and snappy, cockpit is compact but comfortable
    you can play with the stem length to find your perfect arm reach position.
    outfit it with a lighter tire/wheelset combo for a nice heavy duty XC/AM setup
    and have another burly wheelset for those thrashing DJ and freeride days.

    i got my frame from Adreniline bikes... highly recommend them, coolass dudes.

    You can just give em a call they will tell you where to get one. I know they have dealers listed on their site but it seems so many shops are picking them up right now that they aren't all listed.

    Sure looks like a nice bike and the price is right!

    ah. sorry missed that one..

    i used an FSA Orbit Z 1.5 reducer (also from Adrenaline), it's a zero stack height headset and will allow you to run a 160mm fork without it feeling totally raked out.
    I'm running a 36Van on it, it's damn perfect.

    this is the closest pic i have of it
