Hey all,

It’s finally time to sell my 2017 Transition Scout. I purchased this new in August of 2017, and have loved it ever since. It is the most fun bike I have ever ridden; climbs well and is more playful than just about anything when you point it downhill. Despite the 27.5” wheels and 125mm of rear travel, it keeps up with 29ers with much more travel. I have upgraded much of the bike over the past 6 years, a full list of components is below.

I’m moving this summer, and life has gotten busy. I have not ridden it since November 2022, but just brought it to Patapsco Bikes for a full service. Both the fork and rear shock were rebuilt in the spring of 2022, and I have only ridden it around 100 miles since then. The tires have around 250 miles on them, and the GX components have around 150 miles of use. According to Strava, this rig has been ridden 1,426 miles since I purchased it. It is in good condition but definitely has some scratches and paint chips (including one scratch on the left fork stanchion, it is above the travel limit so has no effect; I added a picture). It was ridden hard, but maintained well and currently works perfectly.

Very sad to see it go. It just had a complete tune-up in March 2024 by Patapsco Bikes in Elkridge, MD (new sealant x2, new chain, new brake pads, full brake bleed, full shifting tune, etc.).
