I have always wondered about the Transition trail or park, are the handle bars close to the seat than any other bike. I am looking for something really tight, something that I can move really easy.

i got a new seatpost, but i discovered my seat was broken, so dont mind the duct tape



ps, jag89, i got a chance to ride it today. its really manuverable, and agile but its a bit heaver than the p.1. i would say i probably like the top more.

Is there anything that duct tape can't do? And I was wondering, how tight does it feel?

way tight, it manuals super good, spins well, and the x-ups are a breeze. the low top tube makes for easier no-cans too

That's sweet. Cuase I have been looking around for a new frame. But I don't liek the how much the pricing for the T-O-P is now. I think its $485 last time I saw. Maybe when I get some cash a bit later on.

Pete (Hank Rearden) - you have stooped to a new low.......

What happened to pics of bikes being too showy?

I liked the Pete that would just screw with people by posting pics of his FD bolt, tire nobs, and pedal cleats.....

Either you're gettin soft or your in dire need of acceptance away from your (supposedly) cast-away MTBR.

I never claimed that.

This picture is the result of me getting another flash and experimenting with remote flash positioning. That's all.

p.s. Scrub, still have the Lugi, it's off-camera strapped inot a trainer in my office.
