    Transition Scout vs Banshee Spitfire?

    Was about to pull the trigger on a Transition Scout from Evo and then this Banshee Spitfire pops up at Jenson with some killer components. What to do.....

    That's a really low BB!

    And the Scout (GX level) has better overall spec.

    I have that same BB (13.1) on a custom Ventana with a 36t ring and don't have any issues.

    The Scout is an overall better bike to ride. I’ve got an NX Patrol, and even with the “lowish” level parts, at the end of the day I can’t imagine ever riding a different bike.

    Plus it’s got a water botttle cage!
