I bought this Transition Ripcord in late 2015, spent the winter obsessing over how to build it up for my daughter and gave it to her for her 6th birthday in early 2016. She spent 3 seasons on it (all XC riding and probably 40 rides/under 100 hours total). It's been very well cared for, always stored indoors, and shows virtually zero wear. We were hoping to get one more year out of it but she's now hit the 5' mark so we're going to bump her up to a bigger bike for next season.

I went pretty overboard with the custom build on it focusing on saving weight in the best places. Stock bike was well over 30 lbs and as it sits now I believe it's around 23 lbs. The stock wheels, tires, fork, and crankset were tanks and I ended up getting a custom built set of wheels (gold Koozer hubs, straight pull DT Comps, and Stans Crest rims) setup tubeless with Schwalbe Rocket Rons (still the original set on the bike and show virtually no wear), sourced a super light NOS Rockshox Reba RL, and a sick little GT BMX crankset with 135mm crankarms and an external BB. I also replaced the original grips, saddle, seat collar, shifter, rear derailleur, chain, and headset. In all it's got about $1000 in upgrades even with some bargain shopping for some items. I'll also thrown in a spare NIB Rocket Ron that we never needed and I've got the original stock fork if you want it.

Transition hasn't changed the Ripcord since it was introduced in 2015 and I think this one is still my favorite frame color they've offered. Here's the details on the stock 2015: https://transitionbikes.com/PDF/2015_Ripcord.pdf
