Transition Bikes TR500 Downhill Bike, end of an era

2017_Transition_TR500_05

The last TR500 of 2017 rolled out of our workshop today off to ride DownHill with its new owner, launched in 2013 the TR500 replaced the ever popular TR450 but now its time to move on. With no official word of a new Transition Down hill bike its inevitable following the re-design of the trail bike line in 2015 to utilize the expired horst link and with Transition Bike Company supporting FMD racing on the World Cup circuit. They must be nearly ready to launch something new, TR600? TR600C? Maybe a Patrol DH? Who knows? We are confident and can pretty much guarantee that the development team putting in the runs and the TR500 replacement will live up to its predecessor. Farewell TR500, its been a whole load of fun.
