Got a few built up , decided to post the Moss Green one as it seems to be a favorite so far.
This one is 31.14, and can go a lot lighter. Check out the new Gravity flat bars also. This bike is slack and the long bars give you a good feel and control. We have a full XC build going right now, trying to hit the 28 pound mark so we will post it when its finished.

Looks awesome! Ever since seeing the pictures on the Transition site for the first time I've been lusting for one. The green looks good, but I really like the orange. I can't wait to see some of the other builds you've got going on. Post 'em up!

It seems darker in your photos then the ones Transition is sporting.

How did the build go?

Cable routing looks smooth. Good to see no issue with SRAM.
Did it just slide right through the stay?

Excuse my brand ignorance but what pedals are those?

Looks good very well balanced black white and green!!!!!

Photos on the TBC site used quite a bit of lighting for the shots so you could see the metallic green paint. The pedals are Eclat, a WeThePeople high end company. Very sick pedals, cheap too for what you get, about $65.

Housing slides right throw if you start from the derailuer end. Do it before you put the cranks on though or it will be tight..still no problem.

Sweet build! Just enough white to set the fork off nicely.

Just a heads up that the intended rear derailleur cable routing would be crossing over to the non-driveside and using the two double clips to route it together with the rear brake. Does that make sense? You guys are technically using the front derailleur cable guides... which works, but results in some headtube cable rub.

That looks great. I look forward to seeing the XC build too. Were I to suddenly come across the money for a new covert, I'd go for the green.

Top and down tubes... it's ok to be influenced by others... not saying it's a bad thing.

nice bike with a great build.
I can't seem to find any info on those Gravity flat bars.
Any info out there?
