    Great work and fantastic videos with insight to why and how. That is very valuable. Another key area that needs to be illustrated is hard costs and soft costs. Many riders would like to see a range of the cost of the van and cost of built out. A budget is where you start. I bought an Airstream that provides everything cannot go to some of those places but came out far below some of the vans in the market place including the cost of my truck.

    It’s just riding a bike. Come on, let’s not make it more complicated than it is.

      Jason – thats the difference between a casual weekend rider and a dam good rider.

      if riding the beach bike path is your thing then yes, why make it complicated. I find myself moving my hips and weight all over the place to properly adjust my center of gravity to enter turns at a higher speed.

    JensonUSA is my go-to online shop, their prices are great and things always ship fast!

  • myke says:

    I know i number of people that refused to buy from Jenson now. My personal experience is that they drop the ball too much! purchased some Shimano XT rotors that developed some clear wrap after a few short rides. Jenson’s did pretty much nothing about the issue. these should of been exchanged

  • CarlO. says:

    I’ve always been happy with my Jenson USA transactions. It is reassuring to know that the company is owned and operated by people who are passionate about cycling. I will definitely buy from Jenson USA again.

  • Brianridesbikes says:

    So stoked on Jenson USA, really cool to see from the inside and people working behind the “website”. They almost always have the best prices and will match when they don’t. I’ve never had to call because orders ship on time, delivered quickly and save me a trip out to Corona. Thanks Jenson!

    I ride these trails as often as possible. I hear the whistles sometimes, though I’ve never had the opportunity to ride with them. They tend to be on their own mission. It’s definitely one of my favorite places, Karkloof is one of those must ride places. A shame the recent weather has it all closed down.

    I injured my c1-c4 vertebrate. Does the Camelback extend to your lower back?

  • Michael says:

    This is garbage, you don’t break your thoracic or lumbar spine because of a direct force. It is likely a result of an axial load or a flexion/distraction force – none of which are prevented with this.

    Also, does nothing for your cervical spine

    • Will Urich says:

      Hiya Michael, is their a product on the market that would help prevent the injuries you’re talking about? I don’t know very much about spine injuries, but I know over the years hucking jumps skiing and biking has done a number on my lower vertebra.

      Thanks and ride safe and happy everybody! We’re all in this together!

    • Ted says:

      Thanks for the suggestions, though.

The story behind Transition’s Speed Balanced Geometry


Transition believes fork offset needs to change. A shorter fork offset brings the front axle rearward, moving it under the rider. Combined with the shorter stem lengths that are now popular, you gain better front wheel traction.

    Or just stop making bikes with super slack head angles.

  • JDUB says:

    Rode the Smuggler for a few hours… it wandered all over the place and felt horrid. I was sure it would be my next bike. Thank GOD for demo days!

  • Alec says:

    Ws, Trail is the distance between the head axis to the ground and the contact point of the tire. Decreasing fork offset will move the wheel and its fantasy point back thus increasing Trail.

    Increasing Trail will increase handling issues like wheel flop and line/groove following.
    Note: the the motorcycle world they don’t list fork offset they list head angle and Trail because those are the measurements that actually affect handling.

    If Transition was serious about caring about handling and increasing tire weighting they would spec a larger offset and stem combo with a steering damper like motorcycles.
    We need super short stems and long handle bars in mtb because we are optimizing bikes for downhill speed and that makes them handle worse. Short stems and long handlebars are a bit of a bandaid solution.
