 I hope this don't come back and bight transition in the bum !

 Yep, I thought, "if Transition is doing this, then there really is no hope.....". April fools!
  • + 36
 I think we can actually take this as confirmation that Transition will not be making ebikes anytime soon
  • + 15
 I loved the epic drop at the end, they're really progressing the sport with this one!
  • + 27
 this power assist would be great for people with disabilities,... or the older, higher disposable income set.
  • + 5
 @stacykohut: you are getting down votes without anyone getting the irony! +100
  • + 3
 @GOrtho: lol.

love it!
  • + 82
 Would still have this over an ebike.
  • + 4
 That's why we can't have nice things (or electric cars).
  • + 39
 Best april fools joke since metric shocks
  • + 38
 Take that E bikes!!! Fuel Rules!! Brappp!!!
  • + 32
 Well played, Transition.
  • + 24
 Trek is gonna sue transition, they already have a "fuel" bike!!
  • + 9
 Trek ain't Specialzed though so Transition is probably in the clear.
  • + 22
 Transition can't even make a shit looking bike when they are taking the piss.
  • + 21
 Actually a good looking rig. Can't even try to make an ugly bike....Reminds me of a 34 Indian. Transition for the win!
  • + 3
 Mmmmmm Indian :_D
  • + 2
 @cunning-linguist: would carry a pakora bottle for extra fuel?
  • + 1
 @Worm-Burner: lols! The only way forward! Even better. Indian food on an Indian. Nice!
  • + 22
 At least it recharges quickly
  • + 14
 It's wrist activated drivetrain assist guys. You still need to put in the effort, stop being haters!
  • + 10
 I wonder how much market share companies like transition are gaining with the big guys pushing ebikes, kinda takes the cool out of their brands.
  • + 8
 Just about to get mad and berate Transition as sell-outs but should have known better! This is why a Tranny will be my next bike to go with my Klunker (legends for that too)
  • + 9
 You guys are having way too much fun designing badass bikes. Let the ebike hate commence! Props.
  • + 4
 Get with the times folks! Who wouldn't want a little extra power? My buddy knows one of the Transition R&D guys and he said they're working on something that might eliminate the need to pedal for good! Guess that'll be next year.
  • + 12
 You mean a motorcycle?
  • + 8
 @GiantHuck: its gotta be a bicycle, cuz that's what the industry thinks they're making
  • + 5
 Who is down voting this? Americans (I'm one)? To quote Monty Python, " He used, sarcasm."!!!!!

 @GOrtho: Thanks bro. Glad someone gets me. Wanna go out for coffee and a long walk on the beach sometime?

 Awesome, there's a guy who buzzes down our local trails with one of those motors on a supercycle. It's time to get one of these and give him a run for his money.
  • + 6
 You're going to be mixin gas And slappin Ass
  • + 6
 I know a guy who got a felony for slapping ass on trail as he was riding by...new world out there. He had to have an ankle bracelet, couldn't go to beaches...crazy ish for a 1st time offense.
  • + 2
 @jrocksdh: Was it a woman's ass? Actually curious, not being a smart ass... ass
  • + 1
 @GiantHuck: yes women's..it was laguna so very valid question. Lots of riding without seats goin on.
  • + 2
 Classic.
I remember someone was trying to sell off some of these bikes complete here with really poor quality bikes on the local Craigslist. There where allot of people hating on it. I wonder how many fools actually bought those piles?
  • + 5
 Id get one if only it had room for a bottle. That's a deal beaker for me...
  • + 6
 Dammit, I love April 1st in the mountain bike world.
  • + 7
 I love you Transition!
  • + 2
 Ditto.

 Interesting that Transition is marketing to people who don't like the e-Bike concept. This must be a significant demographic. My shop sells Transition. We also sell Haibike e-Bikes. Our policy is to make sure to tell e-Bike customers that they are only allowed on motorized trails, and we have plenty of those to choose from.

 Passed from spech to transition because of their no e-bike politics Si worried at first and so satisfying then..
  • + 3
 I fully support this, I don't have to ride around making Brapping noises with my mouth anymore and getting funny looks from other people.
  • + 5
 Transition knows how to party. I would buy one.
  • + 5
 Transition with a power assist bike? Not today ISIS, not today.
  • + 4
 Favourite part was the Seagull drive train LOL

 This is like the movie Spinal Tapp. So close to reality that you laugh till it hurts.
  • + 3
 These boys know how to have a laugh! Nice one Transition!

 Please sell this. Please. Im begging you. Its the perfect boardwalk cruiser.

 If there's one brand out there that has the right spirit, it's Transition. Hands down!

 2 stroke motor. they get AND sound worse in person Lol. That particular one is probably off of a weed wacker or a leaf blower
  • + 1
 @salsarider12: definitely from an enduro 2 stroke, I would say Yam
  • + 1
 @salsarider12: doesn't sound like the engines I had in some of my R/C boats....or cars...or planes...

 Does everyone realize this is an April fool's joke? There's no way that klunker is going on the market! That was a pretty funny joke though Smile
  • + 1
 Those engine kits actually are for sale though. I thought about putting one on a cheap bike to ride to work, but the way the rear cog bolts on gets in the way of the disc brake and Im not messing with rim brakes.

 @arphia: you can get mid drive petrol kits from sick bikes and keep your rear disc and keep the 80 cc in the power band by running it through the gears.
  • + 1
 @arphia: I helped my son put one of those things on an 80s Kuwahara mountain bike. Too much power, constantly having to adjust things. The solid rear axle became bent in more ways than I'd ever seen. To quote Ralph Nader: "Unsafe at any speed!"
