Transition Sentinel

Brady’s Sentinel


The Build

The new 2018 Sentinel rocks the recently released Speed Balanced Geometry (SBG) by Transition. SBG’s claim to fame is the use of a reduced off-set front fork which helps riders balance over the center of the bike during corning and descending while also improving front wheel traction on climbs. Brady’s build uses a couple of extra features to clean up the look and ergonomics including heat shrink treatment on the front cockpit cables and a Wolf Tooth dropper seatpost lever. A great bike designed to shred with innovative geometry!

  1. Nice build ! Could you tell me what size is this frame ? Would a 170mm dropper post fit in there?
