One of the best all around bikes made.

The Good:

Simplicity, flexibility, strength, support, looks.

The Bad:

Can be a bit heavy depending on build. Not sure the BR is any less expensive than some competitors offerings in this segment.

Overall Review:

Transition changed the game when they released the Bottlerocket. I credit them for the slopestyle revolution and the sudden switch to shorter travel bikes from big hit bikes that took place a few years ago. While the Bottle is no longer the lightest or best in the this segment, it's still one of the best bikes ever made in this class. I was able to put a Hammerschmidt, Marz 55, drop post, and some lighter components on this for what amounted to a very versatile bike.

Awesome Frame

The Good:

Simple design, very strong, can be used for anything from DJ to slopestyle to trail riding to light DH, very flickable, awesome value for the money, great company to back it up.

The Bad:

It's just the frame.

Overall Review:

Definitely worth the money
