Transition Patrol Alloy - Mullet Custom Build
We get to play with many different bikes NOT just the brands we carry. This particular build was really fun = A fully custom Transition Patrol Alloy Mullet...Ready. To. Party.
The backstory - Scott brought his bike in to us for a bike tuneup
and suspension service. We washed the bike, began service and quickly noticed a crack in the rear swingarm. We let Scott know and helped him facilitate a warranty with Transition. A week later he recieved a brand new Patrol Alloy as crash replacement. Super cool that for 75% off retail price, Transition offers you a new frame if you break yours and it is not under warranty.
So although sad, Scott was able to start compiling parts for a new dream build around the new Patrol as the centerpiece!
Next bit he picked out was a 170mm Rock Shox Zeb Ultimate Fork
that we were running an "out of box" special on. This was the foundation of the attitude he was going for with this bike...Big and Burly! So that being said COIL REAR SHOCK! A Cane Creek DB Kitsuma was the choice!
After scouring the interwebs he found a sweet deal on a Race Face Mullet wheelset on Craigslist that we mounted some Maxxis Tires
and Cushcore Mullet 27.5/29er Mixed Pro tire inserts
. Maxxis Minion DHF EXO casing for the front and an Aggressor Double Down for the rear. This should handle anything that Mt Bachelor and Cline Butte can throw his way.
To slow things down we went with TRP Quadiem SE brakes
and 200mm rotors. These brakes have a nice mixed feel between the modulation of Shimano and stopping power of SRAM Code brakes. We love this about them and the fact that they use mineral oil makes it our choice for custom builds.
A PNW components cockpit and touch points were what Scott wanted so we delivered with a PNW Handlebar and XL grips, Loam Dropper
and Loam Pedals
. We went with an Ergon saddle
a Race Face Turbine dropper remote
to round out the bling of this build.
