Transition TR450 Medium very good cond

$1700 USD
Due to a back injury I'm selling some bikes, including this like very good condition 2013* TR450 Downhill Bike from Transition Bikes. *Bike was bought on closeout in Nov 2015 direct from Transition Bikes, and it was only ridden summer 2016, summer 2017 at Silver Mtn and has no more than 12 rides on it! So we're talking 2 riding seasons of use, then I took a break from DH and it sat in my basement for 2 seasons, lonely and sad until now). With 2 herniated disks, my DH days are done, so its up for grabs. Its a very good looking rig looking for a home and priced to sell. The build is top notch: full Shimano Saint Cranks, Derailleur, Cassette, Chainrings, and Shifters: Shimano Saint Brake levers and calipers: Shimano Saint, rear brake pads are brand new, just replaced on 5 May 2019 and have no rides on them Fork: Fox 40, 8" travel Shock: Fox DHX RC4 coil shock, 8.25" travel Tires: Schwalbe Magic Mary with very good tread, mounted tubeless with fresh Stans holding air perfectly Wheels: Easton Havoc rims and amazing Easton hubs Easton Havoc bar Red Anvil pedals. I have 1 set of extra Saint brake pads in the package which I will include in the deal. Overall condition is very good with the main wear being some shoe wear on the cranks and the inevitable rock dings which I faithfully repaired with matching paint after each ride. I'm willing to ship regionally but prefer local sales. I'm willing to travel and meet within 2 hours from Spokane for folks with serious inquiries.

As for the CX critique: I don't do CX either but many friends of mine do so I won't knock it... its better than surfing a couch. I'd have cut the CX a little shorter to make room for the above, or done another video on CX. But I can't get into the creator's head and know what he was thinking so maybe I'm being a little unfair too. Strava? Yes, its a problem here too. I always say: "Yo dude, Strava is no firkin excuse to throw trail etiquette out the window. Slow down and yield and be courteous to other users or lose the privilege for all of us". On behalf of all the people in NJ that have lifted a macloed to build sweet trails, I want to thank Adam for shedding a little light on one of our best here in NJ (though we have dozens of great people similar to Jason and great places to ride like 6 Mile). Cheers, Mergs

b) anyone that has taken chainsaw safety knows that you wear your safety equipment every time without exceptions. A chain can come off, or any number of dangerous situations can occur, even with small trees that can result in injury. Its better to be safe than sorry and thus be able to ride another day. Chainsaws should never be taken for granted. The day you do, they bite you in the ass. Youtube has plenty of evidence of chainsaw work gone bad. I wouldn't focus on the little trees either... Hurricanes Irene (last year) and Sandy dropped plently of monsters and he was bucking many large ones too. They weren't depicted here. c) Jason is a good man and dedicated to the cause and has taken a pancake flat overgrown park and made it a gigglefest in the woods (in a section of NJ that is really built up and needs a place like this). His building skills have really become impressive. He has a massive amount of support locally and he's been a real leader in the mtb community out here in NJ. I think the film is a good narrative on that and I tip my hat to the creator of the film. That said, my only critiques of the video would be that a) it could have had a little more emphasis on the other volunteers of 6 Mile and b) a cursory mention of JORBA.org (which due to its stellar reputation makes Jason's work possible in a legal sense. For example, Jason mentioned Jason Pace in the video who was his partner for years. That would have been a great seqway into the other volunteers that were a part of this success and JORBA's role there and throughout NJ's parks. Full disclosure: I once served as Executive Director of this organization and still maintain a park in the north part of NJ so I am very biased and tend to defend my bros, like Jason. continued...

I need to jump in here and defend Jason Fenton because I know the lad and he doesn't deserve the negativity. Here goes: a) Jason is a dedicated trail builder that has *real* permission from the landowner, NJDEP, through his organization, JORBA, to build trails. This means that he's allowed to build trail by the State of NJ. All activity he does has to be seen through that lens. I know that legal permission to build trails may come easy in other parts of US and the world but in NJ, this has been a decade long fight to gain this level of access within New Jersey's State Parks and Forests. Many came before him to pave the way for Jason (and me and my volunteers, in my park Jungle Habitat) but Jason's level of dedication in his area has brought it to a new level. He not only rallies trail work days where 50+ eager volunteers show up (we literally run out of tools at his work days) but he's there in the AMs solo with a macloed tweaking lines just because he's in love with this dirt. continued...
