This bike is currently in our shop as a demo. We invite you to take a test ride. To purchase any new Transition mountain bikes give us a call, stop in, or just pop one in your shopping cart and we'll call you when the bike built and ready to roll.
The Scout is your aluminum 27.5 "tweener" - a trail ripper for long days in the saddle or your ripping at the park machine. It's the bike that feels capable and comfortable doing it all. Burly enough for when things get hairy and efficient enough the those extended rides.
Here's what Transition has to say about their Scout: If you're looking for the best parts you can get for a great price, our Scout Alloy GX will tick every box. We know suspension performance is king so we give you the same Fox fork and rear shock we spec on our top of the line XO1 builds. The drivetrain is GX Eagle with a massive gear range that is the new standard for performance and value. We finish the build with rock-solid Stan's Flow S1 Team complete wheelset and the best Maxxis Minion 3C tires you can buy. The Scout Alloy GX is a true riders bike that wants top performing parts that can appreciate a tried and true alloy frameset that can charge all day.
Speed Balanced Geometry - SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider
GIDDYUP 2.0HH SUSPENSION
Take our successful GiddyUp suspension system, add one part increased pedaling efficiency, two parts wider sag range, and three parts increased small bump sensitivity, and you get GiddyUp 2.0HH. Incredible pedaling performance balanced with a superb neutral, comfortable and fun feel that we're known for.
We specifically tuned the suspension with a moderate amount of chain growth which is highest at the sag point and decreasing deeper into the travel. Because of this finely tuned wheel path, there is a notable increase in traction when climbing, without the rider noticing the chain growth fighting the suspension movement.
GiddyUp 2.0HH is extremely easy to setup and it provides excellent support throughout the entire stroke of the shock so you can use all your travel without worrying about bottom out. Designed to be active while climbing, rear shock climbing platforms are not necessary. The suspension remains free to smooth out the trail, improve traction and control without sacrificing efficiency. With GiddyUp 2.0HH you can focus on the trail, no remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.
