Nico Vink Joins Transition Bikes

Jan 6, 2020
by Sarah Moore  

Scott bid farewell to Nico Vink at the end of December after seven years together, and today Transition Bikes announced that Vink will be riding for them for 2020.

bigquotesWelcome to the Transition family @vinknico!

We have been fans for over decade, from rewinding his segments in the infamous Earthed video series to following his current success with the Fest series, film projects and connection with Rampage. We are absolutely over the moon to begin our story together. Nico exudes the purest love for mountain biking we've ever experienced. He’s encouraging by nature, quick to welcome anyone to share a lap with him down the trail and has a passion for bikes to his core. Not to mention being an absolute wizard behind the controls of an excavator (More to come on that later!).⁣

Nico will be riding the TR11 for his big bike adventures and the entire range of SBG trail bikes for everything under 70 feet. ⁣

We are honored to have Nico leading our team of athletes and riders, and we are so excited to see where this leads. ⁣

Build. Ride. Repeat.⁣
Transition Bikes

We look forward to seeing what project Vink is working on with that excavator!

 All wars are bankers wars. Financed by both sides via Zionist endeavors that facilitate the Council of 200, Freemasons, Jesuits, and the Royal families all assist it.. Rosthchilds, Sinclair's, Du Ponts, Rockefeller, Astor's,Kennedy's (to name a few). Agenda 2020 is already commencing while the main goal is Agenda 30. Globalization, economic crises, climate crises/ disaster, FEMA, Gwen Towers, Educational indoctrination, RFID, "war on drugs" ....there all fronts to get humanity to become the ultimate oppressed sentiment beings that even our thoughts and energetic frequency can and will be manipulated against us.. it's already happening incrementally

 @won-sean-animal-chin: Greta said we will all die a long, miserable death and we will watch our children die anyways. Being vaporized in a nuclear explosion is a much better prospect. Unfortunately only those within a mile of explosion will be given such luxurious treatment. Most will have to deal with the fall out and that is almost as bad as 40yr olds talking about playing Fall out.

So there’s plenty of stuff to worry about, but at the same time we can just smoke some weed

 first time i have seriously considered a transition frame T11 carbon. The frame looks really well designed. I wonder how it rides? I wonder what the leverage ratio is and progression on the rear suspension. I wonder how the bike feels in support when take off for a jump? Has anybody ridden this frame? It would be great to have Nick Vink talk about his new ride once he gets used to the bike.

 When it was announced that Nico will leave Scott I thought the only way Scott would let that happen is that someone outbid them... but then I can hardly imagine Transition could do that. But Nico on Transition makes absolute sense!
