Transition Sentinel

 @mikekazimer what's the deal with the seat stay cross brace is it botiming out on the frame before it blows through all the travel? Seems like there is another 1/4 inch of the stanchion left on the shock according to the o ring.

 Nope, it doesn't hit the frame. Where the o-ring stops is how much travel the shock has - it's limited internally to that amount.

 @mikekazimer: on a small portion of Sentinels (very small as in mine was the second they had heard of)- the brace did hit the frame before bottoming out due to the absence of a spacer in the shock from the factory. If this is the case for you- let the fantastic folks at Transition know and they will make it right. Rad company- rad bike. The way they supported me after finding this has me sold as a Transition customer for the foreseeable future.

 @mikekazimer what size did you ride (i'm guessing a Large)? I am 5'11" with a 34" inseam. Had a large Patrol but I was always on the fence if an XL would have been the way to go. I ordered a Large Sentinel but was thinking of changing the order to an XL. I ride like 60% single track tech climbs to chunky fast descents. I race east coast Enduros on the weekends (Kingdom trails, Killington, Sugarbush, highland, Mt. Blue). If you were on a large did you feel there was room enough or would have liked the XL?

 The large was a very good fit for me, and I'm about the same size as you - 5'11", 33" inseam. I think the XL would have felt too big.

 Excellent because I just ordered one! @mikekazimer thanks for the awesome reviews! Last question you think the rear end will fit a maxxis WT 2.5 they say it will but man looks tight back there!

 Yep, it should fit without any issues - there's been a slight change to the chainstays from this early production frame to add more tire clearance.
