Medium Transition Sentinel

$4000 CAD
Hey folks! I am selling my wonderful Transition Sentinel. This bike has been phenomenal. So good, in fact, that I had planned to ride it for another season until I was offered support from a local bike shop (non-Transition dealer). However, that means I can pass it along to a lucky buyer! This bike is perfect as an enduro race bike, or for anyone whose riding style consists of pedalling uphill in order to bomb straight back down. The thoroughly modern geometry is at the heart of this bike's incredible riding characteristics, with a generous 450mm reach, 64-degree head angle, and steep 76.8 degree seat angle (see photos for full geometry chart). The bike's long and low geometry allows you to confidently tackle terrain once reserved for full-on downhill bikes with ease, while the steep seat places you in a position to maximize your leverage on the pedals when climbing. The size medium is ideal for riders in the 5'7" to 5'11" range, depending on your body shape and preferences. The original build kit on the bike was the Alloy GX kit (link included below). The build is really solid and performs great. A couple parts have been swapped or added for better performance and/or durability, namely the: -Stan's Flow ZTR MK3 rear rim laced to a DT Swiss 350 hub -Upgraded Reverb lever -Blackspire 30 tooth oval chainring -OneUp Components chain guide. In terms of maintenance, the frame bearings were recently replaced, fork was serviced, the wheels have been recently trued. The major drivetrain components were also replaced mid-winter. There is some cosmetic paint chipping due to regular riding and transport, but no dents or structural issues. The price is somewhat flexible. For reference, the nearly identical 2019 build is roughly $5,800 CAD. FRAME: Transition Sentinel (140mm travel) REAR SHOCK: Fox DPX2 Performance Elite (Comes with volume spacer kit to fine tune for rider weight/riding style) FORK: RockShox Lyrik RC Solo Air 160mm (3 tokens in fork, bike will come with an additional token) HEADSET: FSA No.57E STEM: RaceFace Aeffect R (40mm) HANDLEBAR: RaceFace Chester 35 (780 x 20mm) SADDLE: ANVL Forge Cromo SEATPOST: RockShox Reverb Stealth with Remote BRAKES: SRAM Code R ROTORS: SRAM Centerline (180mm) SHIFTER: SRAM GX Eagle DERAILLEUR: SRAM GX Eagle CASSETTE: SRAM XG 1275 (11-50t) CHAIN: SRAM GX Eagle CRANK: SRAM Descendent 6k 170mm WHEELSET: E*Thirteen TRS 30mm (Front) Stans Flow MK3 29mm (Rear) TIRE/FRONT: Maxxis Minion DHF 3C WT (29x2.5) TIRE/REAR: Several Options Available.

SRAM Announces New G2 Four Piston Brakes
I may not be a SRAM hater, but I am a Guide hater. Every set I've ridden seem to have a wildly inconsistent bite point, regardless of whether they were bled recently or not. The bite point would change bike ~2 cms from one pull to the next, so you end up riding down the trail pumping your brakes so you don't overshoot your braking points. My Codes have been so much better though. Crazy how much strong, functional brakes can reduce arm pump issues!

Review: The Saracen Myst 29" is Forgiving & Agile
@brappjuice: Fair enough. Also, very mature response to my douchey sarcasm, aha!

@brappjuice: Hopes guy with different opinions than "learns a lesson in humility and open-mindedness". Mmmm, delicious irony.
