Well it has come time to sell my beloved Transition Dirtbag. I have owned this bike for the past 3 seasons and have loved every minute I've spent riding it. Here's what transtion has to say about this model dirtbag:
As the evolution of freeriding continues to get crazier, the DirtBag was designed to meet rider's needs taking it
to the next level. Engineered to get it done on both ends of the mountain, the plush 170mm of rear travel can
tame any trail and stunt, and the stable pedaling platform gets you to the top. If you are looking for a freeride
bike that is the complete package, the DirtBag won’t let you down. The no nonsense suspension setup is
simple, reliable and designed for years of abuse through torturous conditions.
This description is exactly what i would say about this bike after riding it for 3 years. This bike is designed to be beaten on and the build that is on it compliments this type of riding. The Frame was puchased separately and assembled by the guy I bought it from. The wheel set on the bike was also handbuilt and is heavy, but extremely strong and durrable. The fork was sent into a shop to be tuned for more agressive Freeride/dh riding and has been absolutely flawless since the rebuild.
Parts spec as follows:
06 Transition Dirtbag Frame, Large, Fox van r coil shock
Manitue Travis 160mm Tuned for Freeride/dh riding
Handbuilt wheelset,36 spoke Doubletrack rims laced to Shimano Saint hubs
Hayes hydraulic disc brakes 6 in rotors front/back, braided brake lines
Shimano Saint rapid rise derailer
RaceFace Diabolus crank set
Truvative boobars uncut 31"
Transition temple stem
Chris King Nothreadset headset
Intense tires 2.7" front 2.35" rear
Now for the bad:
The rear shock mount is begining to wear, it is still very riddable as it is but will need to be replaced eventually
The pivots in the suspension linkage are also begining to wear. A new set of pivots is $30 from Transition
The right side external bottom braket wore out so i replaced it. since then i have not been able to get the crank arm completely tight on that side. not sure exactly what the problem is. I've heard ther is a spacer kit available from RaceFace to fix the problem
If the bike doesnt sell for awhile i will replace the bushings and increase the price.
It breaks my heart to sell this bike but because of finacacial difficulties I am no longer able to keep it. I will deffinitally be buying another bike from Transition in the future.
THIS BIKE IS A STEAL AT THIS PRICE. MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN. I NEED IT GONE
No part-outs but i would sell just the frame and fork. Make and offer.
Price is OBO
Will ship in US and Canada only
Serious Buyers only please
