Started new thread Transition Smuggler vs. YT Jeffsy 6/10/2018 11:50 PM

Anyone have any thoughts on these bikes? I'm in the market for a versatile 29er full suspension bike since I'm not sure where I will be living in the near future. These 2 are all that I really want to shell out money for at the moment. In short: Transition ... more »

Dean Lucas Injury Update - Interview

Do they not know that second impact syndrome is deadly? and that there is no helmet ever made that can prevent a concussion?

Definite concussion - really shouldn't race - really shouldn't be *allowed to make the decision* to race or not. Shame on the UCI for not having concussion protocols in place. They can have rules for team jerseys and all the other stuff, but don't have one to cover basic...more

Thanks for the heads up man, looks like I am for sure getting this bike then. I have always loved shimano's durability on the one hand but always love how the Sram stuff works on the other hand. I guess the only things left to get for this thing would a new rear tire, and maybe some new brakes (TRP).

Also, I wonder how the drivetrain compares to the YT jeffsy 27 since they decided to go with an 11 speed, E13 wide range cassette/Shimano set up compared to the Sram 12 speed eagle setup. Is there a performance or weight penalty/advantage with one vs the other??

That settles it, this is my next bike 100% There is still $$ left over for new TRP brakes and a decent seat post remote lever.

Neko kicked the shit out of all of them combined. He landed about 2 inches in front of the gnarliest rock on the whole garden and came out with more speed than any of them!

Great review guys, I also like the video format better. Saves my tired eyes from having to read all that stuff hahaha. It did change my opinion on the Trek, so thanks. Even though I am in the market for a long travel 29er like the ones you are testing, I am still gonna get the Capra 29 AL comp, you just can't beat that price right!

I'd get the remedy too, I'm just not feeling 29ers, must be the playfulness of a smaller wheel that has me hooked.

Muddy did have a pretty bad year, sucks when you finally get on a factory team and then your results are worse than the year before. I guess sometimes it better to be the underdog

Brayton looks fast as hell and by far the cleanest on that big step down that everyone was casing!

those look pretty slick man, breathable and waterproof in one package that is hard to beat. I think I have another year or two on the freeriders but these are next
