Pinkbike blog code: Media and Embedding
Hey guys, trying to get the "width=window" to work for photos, but it doesn't seem to apply. Here is the code "[PI=15158688 size=l0 align=c width=window][/PI]" Can you tell what's going on? Thank you!

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@ThomDawson: No patronizing intended. Let's get you on a V2 Giddy up, and you can see first hand for yourself what the complete package feels like. As we mentioned earlier, you might have to ride it to believe it. You could say they defy the physics.

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@ihatetomatoes: The Scout still turns trails into playgrounds. All of the new gen SBG bikes maintain the same fun and playful characteristics of the original bikes, only now with more party. If you rode an M before, you'd still want an M, and it would not feel cumbersome in any way. We've done our homework. And if you're still not sure, come for a rip. We'll be doing plenty of demo's in the coming months and you can always come visit us. Cheers!

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@gbeaks33: All of the new gen SBG bikes will ride just fine with a standard offset fork, albeit a little slacker than the prior models. You just won't benefit from the full SBG system. We do have a flush inventory of SBG compatible RockShox and FOX forks in all configurations to supply our frameset only customers when you're ready to party. #gotyourback.

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@ThomDawson: Think about this for a second- The standard fork offsets being utilized today were developed when mountain bikes had steeper headtube angles, frame length's were shorter and in general were used very differently. For example; when 26, 27.5 and 29" offsets were normalized per wheelsize, dropper posts weren't even commonplace on trail bikes.... let that sink in for a minute. We have tested all offset variations, headtube angles and frame lengths extensively for the last couple years, and found a formula that works better than what's being used. This goes for climbing, descending and everything in between at all speeds. We don't just ride our trailbikes downhill mind you. What we've found is the results are different than what they should be, based on the numbers. There is so much more going on than what a given 'trail' number would suggest. We could provide you all the research we've done along with all of our testing, but then we'd be providing you all of our hard work. look up 'bike wheel flop' on Wikipedia. It's likely different than what you think it means. Wheel velocity plays a major role in it, and a big part of the magic sauce and basis for the SPEED balanced geometry. It works harmoniously with the longer trail figure and provides benefits where you need it, when you need it, based on the speed you are going. SBG, Some Bullshit Gimmick? You'll have to be the judge after riding one. Do you really think we would implement something like this into our bikes that wasn't awesome?

@ThomDawson: Your theory is what is supposed to be correct, based on conventional wisdom and understanding of bikes. However things are different than they seem, and there are a lot more physics at play than one might think. We stopped looking at what is 'supposed' to work a few years ago and instead begun chasing what feels right. We ride bikes, love bikes and make bikes. You might just have to ride it to believe it, don't judge a bike by it's numbers. There is no absolute.

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
tctnbikr- A 170mm dropper will lower all the way to the seatpost collar on M, L and XL 27.5 frames and on L and XL 29's. It will get pretty close to this on the M size 29 frames. With 170, 150, 125 and 100mm droppers you can get the saddle as low (or high) as one would need on the S and new XS size options in both wheel sizes. The rocker pivot has been moved more forward than the 1st gen bikes to accommodate this feature, and the rest of the kinematic points have been adjusted as necessary to achieve the same, if not better suspension feel to the previous bikes. win win.

So guys, new 2018s look radical so far. Will it be boost in the back? If so please tell so I can stop dreaming now !

Transition's New TR Eleven Carbon DH Bike
Hey guys, just to clarify as we seem to be the first ones pushing for this but the fork we are using is a Factory model RC2 damper just without Kashima. It is different from their other black stanchion Performance Elite models which have only a low speed compression adjuster. It's not labeled as a Factory fork since it doesn't have Kashima. Best of both worlds!
