favorite bike i have owned

Rating:
The Good:

light, stiff, great geo and changeable dropouts

The Bad:

pretty long chainstays, bad rotor clearance on the caliber when installing the wheel but can easily be fixed with one washer.

Overall Review:

Awesome frame, i bought one of these after i retired my TOP and i love it soo much more. It was noticeably stiffer than my steel TOP. The first time i rode it made me feel like a better rider and who doesn't want to better them self's with riding! The geo is so good for fast, flowey trails. This Frame is super light, it weighs 24 pounds even with a super burly wheelset. Im sure you could easily drop 2-3 pounds with a lighter build than mine. another super cool thing with V5 and newer is that it has changeable drop outs from 12x142 thru axle (what it comes with) and 10x135 horizontal and 10x135 vertical. Note if you plan on running it SS without a chain tensioner you need to buy the 10x135 horizontal and Transition sells each side individually on there website.
