Transition Trans am29 / alternatives ?
Anybody tried one, having decided to ditch my pitch I ordered a bfe which I was going to run with some lyrics. Thinking now I might be better with a wagon wheeler instead. Looking at the trans am as it seems to be aimed at a burly build.
Will be fitted with 120mm forks and ridden in the peaks mainly plus trips to the lakes/scotland. Anyone got one, ridden one etc any alternatives top budget 600 for the frame.Posted 5 years agowobbemMember

I’d say a Solaris is plenty slack enough with 120mm forks.
I ride my Solaris mainly in the Peak and it has been fandabidozee and feels much more stable than the geo might suggest; perhaps the effect of a steel frame, 29″ wheels and 120 Marz forks combined?
If you want to try mine out I’d be willing to accompany you to let you ride it. It’s a large with dropper post, 50mm stem and wide bars so if you’re 5’10” to 6’3″ it’ll be comfy enough for an hour or two. I’m 6’2″ so almost need an XL.

There are the only two Slack HA 29er hardtails that
1. Are steel
2. Accept a 142mm rear thru axle.
3. Have ISCG tabs
The transAm29 and the Kona Honzo. The Canfield Nimble9 is being revised and may join them.
The Honzo and Transition have significantly different geometries other than the HA thoughPosted 5 years ago
