TRANSITION TR500 NEAR NEW

$2500 CAD
Built this bike for my wife (now X-wife) and she barely rode it. Somewhere between 5-10 times, so random it's hard to remember for sure. She's a pretty timid rider so no abuse on this one. Tires are original and you can see they still have square edges. The bike was built as new with the exception of the brakes which came off another bike; though they have more use than the rest of the bike, they are good stoppers with no issues. I'm firm on $2500 as the bike, though a 2014 is nearly new. AND the TR500 is a bad ass bike!! I know for $2500 bikes are typically well used. This bike needs nothing but to get to someone who'll get er out on the trail where it should be rather than collecting dust in my garage. I'm in Chilliwack now and for a serious buyer can likely deliver for a few $ gas. I'll be moving to Kamloops May 18 and the bike will then be there if not sold by then.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Want Your Bike Biased?
So you ride a 8"ish DH rig and XC hardtail then?

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Want Your Bike Biased?
Thinking about this just a little from my post earlier. I initially thought 50/50. But then realized that when I go out for a 50/50 (climb/descend) I'm on my 115mm Wuuu650. It caters to my climbing weakness and definitely helps me climb more quickly. I can certain rip the descents on it too BUT tend to keep the airs and/or really rough terrain in check. I would never take this bike to the park; thus the reason why I don't know that 50/50 even really fits the AM category. I've ridden my AdHoc in the park and although not at the level of my 216mm DH rig, it certainly can handle pretty much anything I throw it down. Having said this, I'd never consider taking my 216mm DH rig on a "climb" unless I was going simply for DH and there was no shuttle or chair which is why it would fit the 100% or 80/20 category and neither of these ratios would fit true AM . This IS WHERE the 160mm AM bike fits the "sweet Spot". I ride my 160mm Adhoc everywhere I ride my 115mm Wuuu and don't have to walk any sections I wouldn't have to walk my Wuuu. BUT on the down I don't feel held back and rip all but the bigger airs that I don't have mastered (keeping in mind I'm a mortal DH rider). The 160mm sweet spot covers it all and I'd say the AdHoc hits the 60/40 ratio pretty much right on the head. I think 60/40 is really the only ratio that fits AM and really where all AM bikes should be + or - a little. I think perhaps the debate for 6" travel should be more like 55/45 to 65/35 which would fit the climb or descend bias of the AM category better. I think the point is these bikes all climb and descend quite well, just some do one or the other just a bit better. I don't think any are truly 50/50 like some of the comments suggest.

I've spent a season on the AdHoc and would take that challenge. It rips!!

the comparison is for true am bike that rips both XC and DH. 160 is the sweet spot.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Want Your Bike Biased?
I come from from a DH background so for my true AM bike I'd have to say I'd go for a slight bias to DH. I'd definately say climbing would be my weakness. Having said that, I've spent a full season on an AdHoc and have only good things to say about it's climbing ability. For a bike that rips down as well as it does I'd say it climbs like a goat. Unless I'm riding with an iron lung, racer type, I have no problem keeping up on the uphill. For me the AdHoc feels "just right".
