Transition TransAm Frame Review
Manufacturer – Transition Bicycle Company, Ferndale, WA
Model – TransAM Frame
Transition Bike Company’s TransAM frame was designed to be a well-rounded hardtail that is good for bar runs to multi-day epics. The steel frame is quiet no matter how chunky the terrain is. While this bike shines on buff singletrack and climbs like a goat, it is by no means a flimsy XC bike. Slack, smooth and stiff are just a few of the noticeable characteristics this frame offers. Transition includes a headset and seatpost clamp with frame. The campy style headset is smooth, and durable. The seatclamp on the other hand lost its clamping power early in the game, causing the seatpost to slip while in the seated position.
Bottom Line –
If you’re looking for a hardtail to replace a quiver of bikes, this is the frame to get. It’s slack, it’s steel and it’s a deal. The iscg tabs allows you to run it as a 1×9 with a bash/guide, and having the ability to run a 160mm fork means you can shred the gnar with confidence.
