Just checked mine and it seems to be one of those with the dodgy 6mm endscrews.
tried mailing transition, but no reply..

Really? I emailed transition about tr250 front triangles and they got back after 3 hours.
No answer after 2 mails on info@transitionbikes.comBlank Stare

Huh. I think since it's the owners that contact back that it becomes inconsistent over certain periods of time.

MRP G3 worked great for me, not the cheapest though

I ordered direct from Transition before, they also have a bearing tool that is good for all of them but the main pivot bearing. Nowadays though, I just look up the enduro bearing number and buy them piece by piece.

I just recovered my stolen Tr250. It has been completely stripped and I'm looking to rebuild it. I've never built a bike and I'm looking for tips. Any help would be awesome.
Thanks

alright guys,

I know this has been asked before but I would like your advice. I'm set on getting a TR250, but the problem is this isn't my only mountain bike so I cant really shell out the cash for a new one. I also live in an area where there isn't a huge used selection. after weeks of searching I came upon a great 2012 tr250 in a medium frame. It is priced very nicely and I would love to buy it. However, I am 6', maybe 5'11.5 in my riding shoes lol, I like flowy downhill trails with lots of berms and jumps mainly. Will this frame work for me or should I just not get the bike? I'm going to go check it out today and see how it feels but I've never owned a downhill specific bike before so I'm not really sure if I would know if I like it or not.
