Show me your Covert
Gofasterstripes – I’ve just seen your attached photo in all its glory – the warped wheels didn’t show up that well on my phone earlier. As Yoda would say “Your skills as a photoshopper complete are they”! However i’d like to confirm that even the heat of the recent british summer we’ve been basking in this year hasn’t been enough to warp the 29″ wagon wheels on my bike. Though if you feel the weight of those Revolution 28 wheels I think they’d survive a thermonuclear strike. I love the bike though despite the heavy wagon wheels.Posted 4 years ago
Jambalaya – despite what people may think of the wheelsize debate, the 29er makes more sense on the face of it on a Bandit as it is more of an XC/trail mile muncher of a bike. With the Covert being more of a gravity orientated jumpy trail bike it doesn’t seem to suit the 29″ wheels on the face of it. But I must say they work very well on my Covert for the riding I do. My logic in going for the 29er was that I wanted a true AM bike – so robust and fun plus good XC ability. I do like to get airborne as much as possible and the bike is plenty robust enough for what I do, but I could pedal it all day if necessary so it fits the bill for me. Though the 2014 model is available in all 3 wheel sizes so Transition are covering all bases on the Covert and letting the public decide.Posted 4 years ago
I love this thread. And it’s beginning to sound like I’d love this bike too… Damn I need to work faster so I have more playtime. But then I’d not be on here messing with your pictures and making you smile when I should be doing my coursework 🙂
Here’s to silly days – with that I’m going to have a Pastis!Posted 4 years ago
Jambalya – I missed your note before – tail whips? I think your definition of jumps is very different to mine! I’m defiately at the stage where wheel size is not the limiting factor to my capabilities – but i’m learning and giving it a go! I’m whooping at 12 inches off the ground, and if I ever managed to pull off a tail whip I think i’d cream my pants! My mates been messing around with his GoPro so i’ll see what footage he’s got of me so far – but its purely for comedy value! If its anything like footage of me skiing, what I think I look like in my head is very very different to what I actually look like.Posted 4 years ago
@eurokidd – you really are hysterical on the photo imbedding.
Get the web address of the file including the filename and .jpg bit – that has to go into the popup which comes up with the IMG button or in fact you can just post is direct with [im] and [\img] at front and back of the file.
here is the address (from flickr with bit removed) for a photo of my bike at Mam Tor in Peak District, see if you can post it as a picture 🙂Posted 4 years ago

I get the bit about how you post and where, it’s just the link I can’t figure out!
Why is this so bloody hard?!!!!Posted 4 years ago
