 I hope this don't come back and bight transition in the bum !
  • + 23
 Yep, I thought, "if Transition is doing this, then there really is no hope.....". April fools!
  • + 35
 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!
  • + 26
 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).
  • + 38
 Best april fools joke since metric shocks
  • + 38
 Take that E bikes!!! Fuel Rules!! Brappp!!!
  • + 32
 Well played, Transition.
  • + 23
 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

 @cunning-linguist: would carry a pakora bottle for extra fuel?

 @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

  • + 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?

 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.
