The guys at Transition have managed to make a bike that tracks the ground and provides excellent stability while maintaining a fun, flickable feel. It is one of those bikes that you can get on and immediately feel at home. There is nothing quirky or confusing about the way it rides, it just simply does the job it is asked to do. The 450 features adjustable geometry allowing you to lengthen or shorten the chainstays and change the head angle between 63, 63.5 and 64. It is currently set at 63.5. I have had no major issues with the bike in terms of component failure, and everything has held up really well. There are a few minor cosmetic scratches but most of the problem areas were covered with protective adhesive Velcro before the bike touched dirt to minimize any damage. The adhesive Velcro has also been applied to the chainstays and inside of the chainguide upper pulley to dampen the usual chatter. This combined with the clutched Saint derailleur makes for a nice, quiet ride. I am pretty sad to see this bike go. Only selling to upgrade to a TR500. Price is OBO. If you are interested send me a message on Pinkbike or call/text me at 1-403-819-9656 Happy shredding, Evan

Anywhere that can be described with Jurassic Park references is going to be a rad place!
