Transition Bikes in midair! Post your pictures

time to do some free advertising for this company, post your pictures of flying Transition bikes!
No matter if 1 inch or 20 feet off the ground, as long as they are in the air

I'll start with a shot from last week, post canyon, Oregon.

Unknown rider on a bottlerocket, step up:

I'm a roller kind of guy. Leaving the ground is plain scary for me, hence the reason for getting a 2006 Preston FR.

Not as big as some of what's up there, but then it's not as big a bike. And well, neither are my balls, apparantly. phot credit: some self timer, some other people. if you took the picture, you know who you are.

This is a beautifull post! Transition bike owners probably have to take a photo class before buying!

nice pictures, keep 'em coming!

Here are two more I took in Post Canyon, again I forgot the riders names, so if whoever that is doesn't want his picture here let me know.





I seem to be the cameraguy most of the time so no in-flight pictures of my preston 07 yet

Hey scrub what kind of shoes and pedals you ridin?
Shimano M647, Lake MX-165 shoes with Specialized Body Geometry insoles. Very comfortable combo! Same pedals on my hardtail. The shoes are decently stiff for pedaling, but have awesome Vibram shoe tread for those off the bike hoofing it times.

hey man, is that a 150mm or 180mm travis on your preston? what do you think of it? i have a travis 150 that i am going to use for a build. right now i have not decided on whether to build a preston, bottlerocket, or lay down the dough on a heckler. i am leaning towards the BR but havent made up my mind. i have a sherman on my current bike and am very happy with it. are you happy with your decision on the travis?
Thanks, John

Scrubby, you need a cape. :p

brokenchain, I'm assuming that question is directed at me, correct? I actually just swapped the 2006 Travis Single 150 out for a 2006 66 Light last weekend. The Travis 150 was a perfect match for my Preston. I don't care what anyone says about Manitou, that fork has held up great and is much more responsive to technical terrain than the 66 is. However, the 66 is much more plush, and probably too much fork for that bike. My Preston feels a little to raked with the 66, but I suspect that a travel reduction will put things back in check. My advice is to rock the Travis 150 on the Preston and a 170+ fork on a BottleRocket. Your geometry will be better off that way. My $0.02.
