He's going to college, AND working as an intern, after winning senior men's world champs? Shouldn't he be quitting school, buying fast cars, rolexes and a house in Laguna Beach, and doing modeling for some lifestyle brand? DOES NOT COMPUTE

This morning has been a whirlwind of emotions. Trying to fight back tears and sadness, while simultaneously laughing at some of the adventures and stories. Kelly was an amazing person and I'm fortunate enough to have known him for a number of years.

One of the Kelly memories that came up this morning was from 2011...more

An excellent and honest review of this bike Vital. Based on my experience aboard my "Snuggler", I think you nailed it.

Quick tip to cut down on internal cable noise, instead of trying to keep them 'taught' as you did, push them into the frame as much as you can, so they are always in contact with the frame, and then cinch the zip ties at both ports. Worked a treat for me... no more slapp'n da bass!

Also, for turning this bike up to 11, I'd highly recommend the -1.5 degree Works offset headset.... if you like riding the rowdy steeps that is

Looking forward to seeing how the Smuggler stacks up against the competition!

yeah.
Was on my '16 Transition Patrol

Used to do it as a matter of course when I bought frames from NukeProof, didn't think I'd need to worry about QC with Transition.

Hey Tim, shoot me an email. Sent addy via PM - We like to know about these things so we can eliminate them in the future. You can help us help you! Plus, you might get some bearings. With grease!

Ok Tim, I'll check that. Just so I'm clear, are you talking about inside the bearing cartridges (as in removing the seals?) What bike was this on?

Spesh are making room on the payroll for some new big signings from the race scene me thinks. Sad to see Darren leave the company when they have such a rich history together. As always, he will land on his feet no doubt!
