    “great frame”

    The Good: strong, reliable, predictable , smooth and nice jumping

    The Bad: weight , 5. something kg with the shock

    Overall Review:

    i haveridden a transition tr 450 since 2011, i had a green one from 2011 and know i ride a 2012 black like the one on the photograph. i like the  bike performance , handle and versatility , i have ridden it in a race like avalanche, 12.5 km with fire roads, little climbs and single tracks and it old up perfectly .very good choice, since the frame and the hole bike it's not one of the most expensive on the market.

    “tr450 review”

    The Good: The parts ar totally hi-end. Frame travel feels like never ending yet not very soft and very well controllable.

    The Bad: The weight. Smth around 18kg.

    Overall Review: Excellent DH race bike when you care how your bike will perform in longer time. Overall feel of the bike is very ergonomic because all that you need is right there by you. Avid brakes, sram shifters, fox suspension - everything all together combined with transitions great geometry.
