These are the guys who have helped us get to where we are today - thanks so much for all your support everyone and we look forward to continue working with you all in the future.
These guys are 100% real... real friendly, real customer service, real bikers (they can seriously shred) and they make real amazing bikes! We appreciate their mindset in the industry and the support they give us no end - it's companies like Transition that help this sport develop. Here's a little excerpt from their website:
"Our philosophy is simple, Rider Owned for Life. It is not a slick marketing slogan but something that defines who we are as a company. Connecting with our dealers and customers from a rider standpoint is our number one concern. Through outstanding and responsive customer service, and unique niche product design, we create and build relationships with our customers that are important to everyday riders and forgotten by larger companies."
SHIMANO components create a more efficient bicycle-to-rider interface that demands less of your energy.
