Transition TR 250

$3300 USD
Im selling this bike for my friend who went off to college (and who couldn't bring it with him) and rode this bike two times in the time he has owned it. Its previous owner is also a friend of mine who takes very good care of his bikes mechanically but has ridden it often. In all, this bikes life has consisted of only a handful of bike park days and shuttle days. Other than that it has been ridden countless times on the relatively smooth trails of UCSC in santa cruz. You might now be scared after reading that and saying to yourself "oh no! this bike has actually been ridden!" but the fact of the matter is that this bike is mechanically a 10 out of 10 and cosmetically a 8 out of 10 which is way better than most of the bikes on PB buy and sell. I want to be an honest seller and not be like the majority of the sellers on this site and say "it has been ridden 10 times tops" when it is actually a clapped out piece of shit. This bike is not that. It has been meticulously maintained and loved dearly by its previous owners. More details can be found in the specs below: Frame: Yellow TR 250 size Large. Shuttle scratches on down tube, chain stays, tope tube. I tried my best to cover all scraped with yellow touch-up paint but some are still noticeable. There is a rock/frame protector on the down tube but no dings or dents on the entire frame. There is also chain and seat stay protectors that have been installed for the bikes entire life. There is a reason you have never seen a broken TR frame... I have seen snapped kolas, demos, sessions etc but never a TR. These things are tanks! Large bearings that are showing no signs of wear. Overall the only downfall to this frame is the small paint scrapes that are still visible when inspected up close. A coat of protective silicon clear coat has also been sprayed on the frame. Fork: 2013 Rock Shox Boxxer R2C2. This fork has had a recent oil and seal change. This fork is coil but has bottom-out adjustments as well as high and low speed compression and high and low speed rebound. Overall This fork feels amazing and has plenty of adjustments to dial in your ride. No scratches on the stanchions but a few paint chips on the bottom of the lowers. Shock: 2012 X-Fusion Vector Air HLR. This has also received a full service by a certified X-fusion mechanic and is working to its fullest. Adjustments are as follows: air pressure, reservoir pressure, rebound, bottom-out adjust, high & low speed compression. This shock has a large amounts of adjustments and is pretty dialed in for just about anything right now, but can be changed very easily to your preference. This is also the lightest DH air shock on the market. The stickers have been removed from the air canister and piggy back. Drivetrain: X7 shifter on a Zee 9sdp Sram 970 cassette with Sram 970 chain with master link. This is a Sram/Shimano hybrid but it shifts flawlessly without problems. The Shadow Plus system has also been tightened to reduce chain slap. The cassette is 11-28t. The cranks and BB are black Race Face Atlas brand but have been rawed out with sand paper to create a more custom look. The Chainring is a Chromag Clocker 36t and the chain guide is a Gamut P-30 with a matching yellow bash guard. The pedals are Spank Spike pedals which have no bearing play and have nice long pins. Brakes: Avid Code brakes which have been bled recently. Features include: Contact Point Adjustment, Tool-Free Reach Adjustment, Adjustable Banjo, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning. These are also quad piston brakes which means you will have plenty of stopping power. These brakes were installed about 4 months ago but have only been ridden a hand full of times so they still feel great. They are not like most Avids that come on used bikes nowadays... they are not clapped out. The pads still have plenty of life left in them. Wheels: The Front wheel is a Roval DH wheel with an Intense Edge tire 2.5 tire. This tire isn't a well known brand but it has smaller top knobs but huge side knobs allowing for low rolling resistance but it hooks up like mad in the corners. The rear wheel was custom built. It is a DT swiss FR600 hoop with DT champ spokes, brass nips, and a Zee hub. The tire is a Maxxis Minion DHR tire with a good amount of life left in it. This hub is super easy to service and sounds pretty good. Spokes are tensioned and the wheel is true. Only downfall to the wheels is that they have a few minor flat spots here and there. Nothing that effects performance or look of the bike. There are about 3 of them total but are pretty hard to find. Cockpit: The Stem is a Nukeproof DM stem and the Bars are Truvativ Boobars. No problems with any of these with no scratches on them. The grips are ODI vans lockons which actually don't feel as bad as they sound on paper haha. WTB saddle and Syncros post. Headset is a basic Cane Creek 40 sealed bearing headset with carbon spacers etc. Total weight: 37 LBS All geo or tech specs on the frame can be found here: http://www.transitionbikes.com/2013/Bikes_TR250.cfm I tried to be as honest as I could in this add, because I know if I were looking for a used bike... I would want to know everything and be sure that what I'm buying is correct without any hidden surprises. If you have any other questions or want to work out a deal feel free to call or text me at 925-457-2320 or PM be on Pinkbike. Best calling hours are 3pm-8pm M-F or 9am-8pm on weekends.
