New all-mountain bikes from Transition, Commencal
Transition Bandit 29
Transition Bikes recently took the wraps off their Bandit 29, an agressive, full-suspension all-mountain bike.
The rear triangle features Transition's new internchangable dropouts with allow for a 142mm thu-axle or a 135mm quick release. The swingarm moves through 130mm of travel and the tapered headtube is designed around a 140mm fork, most likely the new Fox 34.
Check out the Transition web site for more details.
Commencal Meta AM
Commencal defines an all-mountain bike not as a cross-country bike that can descend, but a downhill bike that can climb. And Commencal knows a thing or two about downhill. Taking cues from the Supreme DH, the Meta AM has a low bottom bracket and a slack 67-degree head tube.
Look for more details to come on Commencal's web site.
