    Whoever at Transition thought that anodised blue pivot hardware would go with a green and black frame needs their head checking! :lol:

    Transition make some great frames, but by god they messed with the colours too much this year. Will be great to ride no doubt though!

    You think? I quite like it.. Infact I have blue hubs on my wheelset :lol:
    The photos aren't great and it does look better in the flesh (aluminium)
    But I will agree last years colours were better and I prefer the colours on the carbon coverts more

    Nice.

    Can't make my mind up on the blue hardware - need to see how it's built up. But - your bike, your rules

    Thanks,

    The photo does over enhance the gloss effect on the frame and bolts as well
    When it's built up the bolts won't be a very big part of it so I think/hope they will look more discrete

    Hell, it's how it rides that counts - and I'm sure it'll be sweet.

    What you building her up with?

    They do go - the green and blue are analogous colours on the colour wheel and complement each other perfectly, and black goes with anything. Your degree's obviously not in art or design ;)

    OP - love the colourscheme, candy green with blue accents (or vice versa) always looks great. I wouldn't use any blue screws/bolts (delete as according to your side of the screws/bolts argument) though - coloured fatsners belong in the 1990s.

    Don't worry, no blue screws :lol:

    Blue hubs and blue pedals are the only other ano blue items so it should look tasteful rather than too much

    Just a little too much going on imo, but then it's not my bike and you won't notice when riding and it's covered in mud! :)

    Good spec - money spent in the right places. When you going to get some finished pics up?

    That's a different argument altogether though. The colours definitely do go together, but it is a bit on the busy side - personally I'd prefer the rear triangle to be green like the main frame.

    I love the frame but agree it should all be green as it gives the impression it has had a replacement rear triangle.

    Just waiting on the forks, when they're in stock and they've arrived from Germany I'll get cracking on the build

    I understand what you mean and I'll prefer a solid colour, but I think with a black pike up front it will look matching

    Aye, that'll balance it out nicely.

  • Nice !

    I have had my Covert 27.5 in Safety Orange since before Xmas, but have been waiting for the Pikes to come back in stock! They arrived last week so the build is on! Similar spec ! All XT, Flow EX Hope hoops, pikes!

    Ooh I like that Safety Orange! I know a Transition sponsored rider out here, might ask him if he can help me with a pro deal price on a Covert - I want the Bronson really but if I can save enough on the Covert I cant argue can I!?

    I think the Orange looks great too

    But the Green edged it for me

    Should be a very similar build to mine, I've ordered some dual position pikes
  • I very nearly went Green! Yours is the first one I've seen out there so to speak in the UK!

    Ive gone single position forks.

    Going to Run 203mm rotors front and back.

    Moving house this month has dented my bike fund but it should be complete by mid feb hopefully. in time for a run at Bike Park Wales
  • ej2320ej2320 Posts: 1,543
    I don't think I've ever seen a Transition out on the trails at all in the UK, let alone a Green Covert
    But that's a good thing in my opinion

    I've gone 203 front and 180 rear just to give me some modulation to avoid locking the rear and shredding the tyres

    I'm hoping to have this build by the start of Feb, literally just waiting on the forks
  • Nope, i test rode a Bronson before, but now they seem quite common, Got a cracking deal on the frame and fancied something a bit different.

    Where in the UK are you?

    my pikes arrived last week in the UK, where are you getting yours from?
  • ej2320ej2320 Posts: 1,543
    I got a pre order offer on mine and I was sold

    I'm based in Shropshire

    I ordered them from Hibike, got my tyres from them and I was very impressed and they had the Dual Position in black at £540!

    Forks are gunna look sweet with the black at the back
    :D:lol::)cooldad :shock: :? :cry:
  • I think many people will have chosen pikes purely on the black scansions! lol
