Absolute gorgeous mate, proper nice Razz I want one...


Took me a while to motivate myself to upload photos to photobucket. Had it built a couple of weeks now.

If I ever see you over Hamsterley I'll give you a spin on it buddy!

Funnily enough, I sold the medium frame I had to a guy in Leeds.

Its 130mm, last FS was 140mm and I can't tell the difference tbh. Find this much more aggressive.

I noticed that mate, what colour you going for? Not keen on the poo brown.

Nice, think the pewter one looks good myself. Quite like the bandit in that colour too.

Are we starting a Transition owners club thread...? Rolling Eyes

Transition top lads.

Aye another yellow bike wouldve been overkill.

Youll be putting some times in on strava when you get it. Gonna race some enduro?

yeah mate will be doing lots of enduros next year


Racing DH is good but you don't really get much riding in. same on uplift days

get 12 runs at hammers, tracks are 2-2.5 mins long. Thats less than half an hours worth of riding time. Uplifts run from 10:15am-4pmish

so it takes allllll day to have 24 mins worth of riding time lol

at least with doing enduros/all mountain stuff you get alot more time in the saddle!


Entered an enduro at kidland already (part of the NDH series) so should be good.


can't wait for next year lol

Wouldn't mind giving DH a go at some point. Think I'm at the point now where I'd at least be able to roll a lot of it.

Yeah basically just like standard trail centre riding tbh. Think I might give a couple of events a go next year.

Dya know the lads who run the NDH? Me mate at work - Phil is part of the team.
