First order of Transition bikes came in last week, first to be built is the Bandit 26″, its a 2011 frame and build kit but the geometry is the same as the 2012 model. first impressions? this is going to be a FUN bike!
The new bandit will have kashima fork and shock but for now we have to make do with the old RP23 shock and Float 140mm forks. rest of the build is by SRAM and transition components. coming in at just under £2900 RRP we have it at £2609.99 due to it being a 2011 model.
If the feel of this bike is anything to go by, the next build is going to be amazing, the brand new Bandit 29er 2012, in the only colour it should really come in, Lime Green. More on that as soon as its built.
