From what I see of its specs on Bikepedia, it looks like it would be a fine starter at a reasonable price.
A little late to be asking questions about price, eh? :rolleyes:
Needs moar shims . . . and moar cowbell.
Fair price for a P.2. If you can't look it over in person, get a money-back assurance from the seller that there are no cracks in the frame.
X-Caliber 8 would probably be a more comparable-level model and more worth a $500 change-out.
Transition TransAm 29
At your height, don't look at anything less than a 19. That's pushing it a bit even, but for casual campus cruising would be a comfortable blend of easy on-and-off and efficiency . . . as long as you...
I race downhill on platforms; but I'd say the mix of platform/clipless users at any given race is about 50-50. Very much a personal preference thing for that. But if you're looking at messing around...
:rolleyes: Friggin' boat anchors. For cruiser bikes and tourers - - not for MTB.
Gawd, then you'd have to live in Longview or Kelso...might as well be in >gasp< Lakewood, Fife or hell. That would at least put you closer to Cap Forest and Tiger Mtn.
Very good. I have complete faith that you'll love it. I thoroughly enjoyed both Transitions I had and wouldn't hesitate to own another someday.
About right for what?
Well, now you are just confusing the issue with facts. I think that is somehow contrary to BikeForums user guidelines.
Glad you had fun. Looks like you had a bit better time staying upright than your riding buddy ;).
Lift season is on folks! Get out there and pinnit. One of our local bike parks just opened last...
Transition is a great semi-small company based in Ferndale, WA (nearly the same neighborhood as Kona Bikes in fact). Kevin and Kyle are awesome young forward-thinking guys, have a solid engineering...
I would put aside all the silliness above and get a Transition TransAm 27.5 and call it done.
FWIW, Pricepoint has some pretty decent deals on Easton bars right now - - like EA50 Monkey Bars for $30:
Bars & Stems | Easton Deals | Discounted Mountain Bikes, Road Bikes and Cycling Gear at...
Of course - - so do you not have access to it?
Since when does anybody in Bike Forums care where the forum is really? Commuters and road riders and gravel grinders post crap in here all the time...
There's already a BF Fatbike forum:
Xtreme Fat Tire Bike Parts & Components
Sure it's mostly one vendor's posts now but he must be a bit lonely. Have at it folks! A subforum waiting to be...
First GT is waaaaay overpriced for that old of a bike. It's $50 yard sale material. Second GT is more in line and would make a fine bike for your needs.
Face it. Fatbikes, though cool and fun and different and enjoying a brief "Next Big Thing" status and you are super-stoked on them, are super micro-niche in the grand scheme of cycling or even just...
Hmmm . . . seems to me we're pretty accommodating around here. I think we have more roadies per capita here than there are in the road forum.
