Welcome to the Shire. Nestled in the hills of Bellingham, WA. It is the most unassuming place. It’s inhabitants live day in and day out as if each day were a repeat of the last. For it’s inhabitants do not seek thrills or escape from daily life, as it is not the way the inhabitants of the Shire behave. But today you’ll meet two inhabitants, Ian and Scotty, who are about to go on an adventure for the likes of which the Shire has yet to see.

Transitions complete PBJ leaves nothing to be desired straight out of the box. The front fork duties are handled by the industry-leading RockShox Pike DJ that can be tuned super stiff and rigid or wide open for more small bump sensitivity. The frame features Taper Lock dropouts to keep the wheelset from slipping without bulky chain tensioners. A solid cockpit of parts including our very own pivotal saddle and DJ stem as well as high rise 50mm Kore Torsion bar provide the perfect touch points. It wouldn’t be a dirt jumper without a classic 3 piece chromo crankset and we finish the build off with the all-new Maxxis DTH 2.3″ tires for incredible grip on berms and lips while minimizing rolling resistance so pumpin and jumpin are effortless. $1600 transitionbikes.com
