That is just a 03 Jr. T., bought it used and it had super T internals, got it real cheap as there is a little ding in one of the stanchions. The frame is adjustable between 5.2 and 6.2 inches of travel. You can order it with dangerboy plates that take it to 7.2". I hear really good things about the bike and Kevin at Transition was great to deal with...answered all my inane questions. Way better service than most of the other companies I contacted while looking for a new frame...seems most of the big frame makers could care less about new clients.

The "big frame makers" don't sell directly to the public either, and want your questions answered by the LBS. Still, from my experience Transition is doing it right.

My roomate just a a Dirtbag too.... Sweet bikes.

HAHA, yeah...first thing I noticed out of the box, it was a shipping mistake. I have an old four bolt sitting around, so I am selling the five bolt.

And for the other brands that don't seem to want to talk to potential customers, that is bunk...what about people that do not have a dealer in their area. Customer service is key and if you want to talk to customers that way I do not want to give you my business, easy as that.

The not being able to build it up is killing me...driving me insane......bwhahahahaha.......insane I tell ya........

Congrats, that's sweet.

I have a bunch of parts and stuff I was going to put up on the classifieds this month, PM me if interested, and I'll let you have first crack at the stuff you want. VERY reasonably priced, just need to empty the garage to please the wife!
