Transition launches new ‘cross bike – The Rapture

This is it. The end. The end of boring, lycra-clad, watts-measuring, handup-forbidding, gram-counting, no-fun cyclocross. The Rapture.

Over in our sister magazine, Dirt Rag, we’ve been fans of Transition mountain bikes for years. Now they’ve introduced this new cyclocross model with some nice features: swinging dropouts for geared or singlespeed use, an ED rustproof finish, internal rear brake routing, removable downtube cable guides, a 44mm headtube, and a bad attitude.

Here the UCI World Champion Transition cyclocross team shows us how it works. Can you identify the coach?
