Short or Long-Travel: Which Is The Best All-Round MTB?
After playing around with my transition sentinel, I've settled on a setup of maxxis DD tires front and rear, with maxx grip assegai in the front, and maxxterra dissector in the rear with no inserts. With carbon wheels my bike is a touch over 30 lbs, pedals great, but I still have enough support and grip through the front of the bike.

5 Bikes Stolen After Break In at Cotic
It’s comforting to hear that the police in the uk care just as little about property crime as they do in the united states.

Review: The Digit Datum & Its Integrated 'Analog' Suspension
Say what you will about the slack seat tube, a sub 30 pound alloy trail bike is the kind of innovation we actually need.

Field Test: Transition Patrol Carbon - The Party Machine
@mtb-thetown: On an x2 it's a pretty pain to change travel, on the flip side they have to get sent into for service fairly regularly. Even so, what I'm saying is only the kinematics would differ when you bottomed out the bike if you tested 60mm vs 65mm with the same length of sag (not percentage). If you ran 20mm of sag in either bike, it would behave exactly the same except you'd have an extra 10mm of travel at bottom out. Transition does the same thing with the scout, and they say you can short stroke the sentinel to have a 140mm trail bike, which makes the least amount of sense because you can just run the regular sentinel with less sag and get the same thing. This is all probably based on marketing decisions and how best to manage customer's expectations for how each of their bikes should ride - the patrol is more of a 'fun' bike than the spire.

Field Test: Transition Patrol Carbon - The Party Machine
I still don't understand why transition (and other bike manufacturers) spec a shock like 205 x 60, and then tell customers they can run 205 x 65 and get 10mm more travel. Just give customers the longer stroke shock, and let them decide the feeling of the bike based on sag. If they run a 65mm stroke shock and run 20mm of sag, it will feel exactly the same as if they ran a 60mm stroke shock with 20mm of sag, except the bike will have an extra 10mm of travel at bottom out.

Transition Sentinel Carbon GX with upgrades

$2600 USD
2019 Transition Sentinel in red. This is the standard GX Build but with a few items changed: Sram Code R Brakes Sram GX Eagle 12sp Drive Train Stan's tubeless wheels Changed: Sram 30 Tooth Steel Chainring Fox 36 Performance, but with a Grip 2 damper and a Vorsprung Suspension Luftkappe in the air spring DVO Topaz T3 Air rear shock Cascade Components Link 9point8 Fall Line Dropper Post. Maxxis Assegai Exo up front Maxxis DHRII Rear With the Cascade link you'll have a 145mm of rear travel with a much more progressive leverage ratio compared to a stock v1 Sentinel. This setup with the DVO shock feels amazing, it has very little breakaway force. I also have the original fox DPX2 shock, set to a 60mm stroke. This shock does need a rebuild, but if you were to rebuild it, this would yield 152mm of rear travel. The DVO shock is set to 57.5mm stroke, as any longer runs into clearance issues with the frame. The bike does have a few cosmetic defects that are typical of Transitions, a handful of minor paint chips and heel rub, however everything is in excellent condition - I recently tuned it up, bleed the brakes, trued the wheels and inspected the pivot bearings. It's ready to rip. Will ship for an additional fee, but prefer buyers local to the Boise area. Will consider trade + cash (cash to me) for a transition pbj, long. Will also consider a trade (with cash mixed to you, likely) for a large transition spur.
