So I’m looking at picking up an #oncoil Patrol frame to replace my ‘17 Patrol. Transition recommends 20-25% sag on the coil, and 32-35% for air. For those that have been #oncoil for a while, with the proper spring rate is the frame progressive enough for coil, without resorting to a cascade link or progressive coil?

I had no issues for my time #oncoil and TRs recommendations are spot on for sag%

Nice! Which shock did you have?

I’m also considering this in the near future so I’m glad someone has asked the question!

I’m thinking of going for a jade x to match the DVO diamond I have up front

I was introduced to mountain biking in 8th grade by a bunch of guys on Bottlerockets. That bike was burnt into my brain as being the pinnacle of cool, the raddest bike ever made. I used to lust after it so hard, but never owned one.

One popped up at a consignment store for $500 this week and I impulse bought it, assuming I'd mostly use it as a mess-around bike at the little town bike park a block from the house. Took it up on Teton Pass yesterday, and shit, this bike holds up! Took about two minutes to feel totally at home on it, and was clearing everything I usually have on my modern big bike. All that to say, I'm a huge fan of modern Transitions, but sometimes you've just gotta play the classics.

the only bike i've ever owned i truly regret selling. Even if to have a frame i had so much fun on up on the wall as memorabilia.

So much nostalgia with the BR! Still remains as one of the funnest bikes I've owned.

Nice!

Looks a lot like my blue Patrol. Silver brakes, stem, and cranks.

Polish that seat collar!

Impossible size to find. You’ll have to pull it off and paint, anodize, or polish it yourself :-)

That .6mm of tolerance scares me with carbon. I couldn’t imagine cracking because I wanted some bling. Imagine the warranty request on that one hahaha!
