Canada build (dropped saddle, wide bars, big tyres.) It's an all mountain bike, but handles the North Shore and Whistler very well. In Denmark the saddle goes up, naturally, and I have some shorter 72.5cm bars. I also just bought a Hope Pro II wheelset on Stan's Arch rims. I'll see how they hold up on the DH tracks with some bigger tyres. Good all-round very fun bike! :D Oh, and a new Fox 36 Float is in the works...

Thanks. It's my baby! It's a freakin' awesome bike. Playful, quick, and loves to get air of roots and rocks.

don't you have problems with dropping chain without chainguide?
transition bikes are really built/welded in canada?

Nope, no problems. But it's a 2x9 setup, not single chain ring. I also had it in Canada on the Shore, where you rattle around a lot, and the chain stayed on. Transition are a U.S. company from Ferndale, Washington, and their bikes are welded in Taiwan as far as I know.
