Hi,

I was wondering as at my local bike park the 2012 Transition Trail or Park was the dominant dirt jumper, now I'm wondering if it's worth buying the 2012 model, or going for one of the 2013 models (Bank, PBJ, or BLT). Please leave all comments and advice. I've been riding a full suspension for a year and a half now, ready to try out a dirt jumper.

Thanks!

I have no idea if there's anything different about the 2013 over the 2012. But I know that's been a rad model for 5+ years. I doubt it matters what year it is.

I doubt it matters get the 2012 if you can get it for a better price. If the price is about the same go newer model. Nice looking bike

theres a big differance
personally id go for the blt, its shorter and tighter that the trail or park was but it depends what your going to ride on it

Okay, actually I hadnt seen the BLT.

It is different because it has zero bottom bracket drop. Also the back end is super short, at 14.7".
