Transition Bandit 27.5

Had a hard time deciding between the Bandit and it's longer travel Covert. Went with the more everyday Bandit with a longer fork and slacked it out with an AngleSet half a degree.
Had a hard time deciding between the Bandit and it's longer travel Covert. Went with the more everyday Bandit with a longer fork and slacked it out with an AngleSet half a degree. 150mm travel with a Cane Creek AngleSet to get the BB back down and keep the reach about the same. The WTB BeeLine's are fast and supple, but have good volume and grip in a lot more places than I expected. When it gets rugged I'll run the Vigilantes. Love these drop outs and the stoutness of the Zee Derailleur. Industry Nine Trail 32s because I only needed a little more stiffness than the Trail 24s. If I need more I'll swap with the Enduro rims which will use the same spokes. Endless Bikes make some great narrow-wide tooth chainrings in Asheville NC in the same place as Industry Nine.
