Transition athlete turned employee Lars Sternberg has long been known for the attention to detail and custom touches he includes in his personal builds. His go-to bike these days is Transition's new "all-country" Spur. This lightweight 120mm trail bike features long, slack geometry that would have been found on enduro bikes from a few seasons ago.

One of the benefits of working for a bike company is contributing to the development process of new models. "I've actually been riding this bike since August 2019 and logging and flogging miles," Sternberg said. "It's one of my favorite mountain bikes of all-time," he added.
Lars Sterberg's has a few custom touches that blend XC efficiency with DH performance.
Build highlights of his custom-built Spur include a 210mm One-Up dropper seatpost, a One-Up carbon handlebar with 35mm of rise cut to a surprisingly narrow 750mm, a 120mm Fox 34 Step Cast fork, and Shimano's tried and true 12-speed XT drivetrain. Check out the video for the full component rundown.
