I have steel Transition TransAm 18” frameset laying around, it was my single speed for a long while. Wondering what to do with it. It is a bit steep geometry for my liking. Do they still make those? Guess not in a 26” version.

1.5 slicks and singlespeed with cable disk brake for a bar bike.

It has 150mm Uturn coil Sektor fork going with it. Would be quite weird.
Slicks I would probable put on old Motobecane Ti frame. Need some suspension corrected rigid fork for it.

My point was, that could be s steel frame option for someone liking for such things. But looks like 29r version is no longer made. Shame.

150 u turn fork would be sick.. Dial it down for speed and efficiency getting to the bar.. Then unwind it for the curb jumping urban hucking after a few rounds.

I have one of these as well. A couple of pump tracks have opened locally to me, so I'm going to pop some slicks on it and use it for that.

This thing is sick. Kinda surprised to see a short travel 27.5 slopedurobikepack hybrid on the front page, but I am all for it.

Freaking sweet, love everything about it. Wish market demand was able to more support more bikes like this (short travel 27.5, not bike packing).

C$5,800 frameset is eyewatering though...too rich for my wallet.

Might actually be one of the ugliest bikes I've ever seen. Numbers look good but the bike is hideous.

They have come a long way since the Blindside although the Double and Bottle rocket were awesome
