The brief was to build a hardcore 29er that can take on the UK gravity scene along with the European EWS. The focus had to be capability, durability and serviceability. The Smuggler was the obvious choice, Hope Tech 3 E4 brakes with Hope Tech Enduro wheels makes maintenance easy, Continental Baron and Kaiser Projekt bringing the grip in the business. Transmission provided by Shimano XT, let’s face it, we are going to wear out a few chains and maybe a cassette or two and Shimano currently lead the way on quality and value. Suspension and seatpost by Rockshox offering a reliable package serviced by any quality bike shop.

We think that this bike is packed with value, ready to race, ready to ride. The Transition Smuggler is a firm favourite here at Plush Hill Cycles.
