    So, the Spur is a Trail Pistol with dentist-only builds and a noodly fork? Revolutionary!
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    How is a 35mm fork noodly?

    Yeah, I mean the 29# GX build has a 35mm PIke and GX ...for $4795. If I'm spending $5000 (or $4795), I'm really sweatin $300. What's that, 1 filling?
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    Haha! SID Ultimate is the only fork option I see on the Transition site, and $5K seems like a lot for the entry level build, but thats just one guys opinion.

    I want to buy one just to support their snark. Also, it looks like a great balance.

    Only Sid Ultimate with 120mm travel is the 35mm model. You would think they would mention that somewhere in the marketing though.

    The SID Ultimate has 35mm lowers; the SL has 32. It is a lot...but it's also compares favorably to other brands; they just don't offer an NX/SX or Deore build.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    All these new sporty little bikes are making me wish I could justify owning two FS bikes at once, but I just don't think I can.

    So tempted though.....

    Smuggler has vanished from the website. I love mine despite it being a heavier, over forked Spur.

    I wonder how far off we are from just sending off our preferred geometries and suspension designs to Asia for a cheap custom frame. I know a mould is required for each triangle but most should be available. Id love to cut out the marketing and other overhead fluff in frame prices.

    Probably pretty cheap, as long as you're willing to buy 100 of them.

    650 usd plus shipping (friend paid 150 shipping to Bend)

    It's an open mold design. The front end is being used by NS bikes and the full frame by some other small name euro brands.

    I don't think it will happen till someone cracks a lower cost additive manufacturing method. Mold costs are still going to be really high. The one I linked is an open mold so a few manufacturers are basically splitting mold costs.

    Not bad. Not quite cheap enough for me to jump though. Food for thought

    Brian what is that frame supposed to be? I'm not really up on the latest and greatest

    Id agree. But they buy components cheaper than you do!
