Transition Smuggler

Hey Jeff, I enjoyed your analysis on YouTube. I've been looking at the Patrol lately, but am intrigued by a Smuggler setup similar to yours. Does the basic Monarch get overwhelmed? Would the Smuggler benefit from a M+ or a Float X, while still retaining the characteristics you spoke so highly of?

Just to play devil's advocate when it comes to active suspension, it could come down to what you want out of the bike. A remote would be nice for sprinting through flatter or smoother sections, even on a regular ride and of course for the pedal back to the hill, but an active design makes for an incredibly fun, playful ride coming down. It does add one more lever and item to think about though.

I think you do an excellent job across the board with your reviews, Jeff. I keep wanting to want one of the new Remedy's or Slash's but Trek keeps doing these hokey or proprietary "innovations" that, as you've expressed, don't do much. Add in the low end damper on the fork and at best I might consider a frame only. Which is what end up doing anyway. Keep up the great work!

If that is really what you take away from these features, we might as well not bother doing them anymore. Why That Bike is all about our members, we cruise the bike check section looking for sweet rides that people have put some effort into customizing, and then we showcase those bikes in the feature to share...more

Any pictures of the damage?

I also appreciate seeing the same bike being used throughout so many tests! I take it as an effort to reduce another variable. Either that or lots of love for the Capra!

Way to tell it like it is vital. Your honesty makes the 5-star reviews that much more meaningful.

I love the snappiness of carbon rims but until i am making 150k a year, I cannot possibly justify it.

I assure you that the gents testing this concept (Transition, FOX, RockShox, Chris Porter, etc) know exactly what's up. I'd like to think I do as well, having been at this testing game for several years. The back-to-back process typically reveals all.

Totally agree about the tire choice. But the new nomad has to be ridden to be appreciated for what it is. Definitely function over fashion for the new one.
