Transition TR500

The Good:

Rails the corners, super stable&predictable, easy to ride, smooth landings, easy to do doubles triples bunny hops whips and so on
all round bike very good for high speeds, accelerates quickly, the paint is scratch resistant. No break jack ! The shock unit comes custom tuned for the frame, very quiet bike no bad noise from the chain or so... ;) Geometry is adjustable as well the chainstay lenght.

The Bad:

When new frame makes funny noises from the rear axle, frame with the shock are just a bit heavy but lighter than TR450 about 330gr.
Cable routing for the rare brake is a but idiotic goes under the chainstay instead over it and this make it vulnerable, have to make a bigger holes to install the brake hose inside the frame. Frame bearings need to be re-greased as they come super dry.

Overall Review:

My lovely TR500 bike i got this frame as a new middle of the summer 2014, the bike itself its not heavy at all, it is super robust and versatile machine, rails the corners super easy, easy to ride, comfortable stable on high speed make you want to ride faster and faster. Super smooth on landings big drops rock gardens i spent some time around bike parks in Leogang and Maribor to get in to the riding of it and it didn't take long at all super lovely bike and i hope it will last as it looks like . The shock unit comes custom tuned for the frame. I run it as DH and the settings are 63HA and shorter chainstay lower BB, can do 62 HA with the need of -1 headset my frame is custom large and im 177 and feels super plush and easy to ride.
