While nearly every other bike manufacturer is falling over themselves to introduce 650B components and frames, Transition has been hard at play building something altogether different. Instead of a new carbon suspension rig, they are proud to announce, they’ve taken “one giant step backwards” with their latest bike – the 2013 Transition Klunker.
Full details after the break…
The Klunker features absolutely no technology and is in no way optimized. 4130 chromoly, moto handlebar, DH tires and a coaster brake are all the features you need to rip your favorite trails or cruise downtown to grab a beer.
Coming in at 32 lbs for the complete bike, the Klunker is incredibly lightweight for a Klunker. Another thing that is lightweight about the Klunker is the price, $549 for the complete bike. Two color options are available, “Party in the Woods” Matte Black and “Klunking Isn’t Free” Eagle White (featuring checkerboard toptube and crossbar pads).
“Klunking is making a huge comeback and it’s a great way to experience your local trails on a totally new level. Our Klunker is ready to ride right out of the box, without any modifications, and it’s just as much fun riding trails as it is cruising around town. Once you start Klunking, you can’t stop.” Says Transition Bikes Owner Kevin Menard.”
