We brought news of the latest Transition, the TR250 a couple of months back. Well now Revolution Products have updated us with the latest details on this sweet looking frame. This bad boy should be on New Zealand shores early Jan 2011.
The TR250 borrows many great race proven characteristics from its sibling the TR450 to create a tight and responsive short travel DH bike that absolutely rips. Making the TR250 versatile was the top priority with adjustable chainstay length, travel, BB height and head angle; there is nothing on this bike you can't tweak. The suspension features the same great progressive feel as the TR450 but offers adjustable travel settings for two distinct feels at 160 or 180mm of travel depending on your mood. The TR250 is meant to be ridden hard and put away wet since it is extremely easy to maintain. This bike is built for riders that love DH style bikes but are looking for something more playful that is incredibly easy to throw around that can still rail down gnarly downhill lines.
