 I actually love mine, its really smooth, light enough for me (i'm a weakling), it comes with a choice of colours for graphics so the ones you dont use you can stick all over your car or something, i'm just rambling to make this 100 words or whatever but the point is that its a great bike for a woman ... or a man if you so disire.

 short, light and snappy, but the reinforced version is burly enough for drops over 10ft. due to the high leverage ratio you might need a heavier spring than you would normally run on other bikes. BB is also low so i went with 165mm cranks. Transition's customer service is great,very pleased.

 The best womans freeride bike out there currently... so plush and so much fun. Transition has new reinforced and improved frames coming to the factory, should make a sweet ride even sweeter. Though its a womans bike, if you are a guy looking for a smaller travel bike that still rides very smooth, check out the syren.

 As a new rider I attempted to destroy this bike with my terrible riding skills. Fortunately this bike is built like a tank and 2 race seasons later, it's still putting me on top of the podium.

 Girls who want to get serious about riding bigger bikes can do no wrong with the Syren. It is super easy to learn to ride and can handle some pretty gnarly terrain.

 I absolutely love this bike, so forgiving and easy to maneuver. It's my first full suspension bike, and I feel very comfortable riding it.

 I couldn't ask for a better first full suspension bike! This bike is very easy to maneuver due to short wheel base.

Transition Syren (MSRP $3744) — The Syren is our womens specific freeride bike built to be a do-it-all package. From bike parks like Whistler, freeride North Shore trails and epic singletrack, the Syren's versatility has all the guys begging us to make one for them. Designed with the input from over 30 female riders, every detail concerning a women's needs for a aggressive freeride frame have been accounted for. The Syren features ultra low standover (easily fits women down to 5'0"), a light flickable frame that is burly enough for freeriding and a shorter wheelbase that makes it easier for women to pull the front end up.
