Transition TR500 - Review
Wow! Never knew carbon was repairable! U learn something new every day! Seeing quite a few on my local dh tracks so i guess theyve hit the nail on the head with the magic formula (style+performance+great price=rad!) I guess i just need to get over my unfounded fear of carbon! Haha Id still love to see the tr500 in the flesh before arriving at a decision though. Both brands get my love!

Transition TR500 - Review
Cracked the frame open! Oh dear. Hope he wasnt hurt. I think id probably lose all trust in a carbon frame if it exploded on me (regardless of whether it was replaced under warranty!) Ive cracked an aluminium frame in the past, but it was just a hairline crack at a weld joint after 2 years of abuse running it down dh tracks that it wasnt really designed for! Due to it being alloy it wasnt a catastrophic failure that couldve landed me in hospital. Ive got a saracen myst just now and im experiencing problems with the carbon swingarm. Think im getting the carbon fear! Haha My decision is starting to sway towards the tr500. Has anyone else had any issues with the carbon operator??

Thanks for the feedback mate. I suppose i couldnt go wrong with either. Im thinking the kona would prob be lighter but ive always wanted to own a transition. Love their company ethos. Guess it might just come down to price in the end! Lol

Help! Can't decide whether my next bike should be the tr500 or the new 2015 Kona operator? Having never ridden either, I would be buying blind! Had my heart set on the Kona, but Transition have now went and complicated matters for me! lol. this bikes looks ace! What's the general PB concensus?

Proven Here. SB5 Carbon and the San Juan Mountains
PBs review 16th July. Quotes- " simultaneous combination of landing and preloading for the next jump occasionally made the bike sink further into its travel than expected" Sorry but I thought this new technology was meant to be a game changer? "We'd make changes to the tyres and cockpit" So you've just spunked £7k on the new "super bike" but the first thing you have to do is hand over more cash for upgrades! take my money!! go on! take it! In fact I'll even rent my granny out down the docks to make sure I get one pre-ordered! craziness

Cough cough splutter!! sorry folks but I'm choking on the new carbon yeti lodged halfway down my throat. Pure unashamed marketing hype. Boggle us all with 2 days of tech talk and game changing claims, then can't even back it up with a decent vid! Throw in a mediocre PB review that tells us the component choice is terrible and the supension behaves awkwardly on repeated succesive hits! Surely the mtb money/marketing machine have all been sniffing glue? Are we expected to swallow this nonsense?
