    There’s a couple clues in this thread mate, the first one being the spec list at the top and the second being the huge writing on the tyres. 😆 😆

    They’re Hans Dampf, Schwalbe’s new offering and they are my new favourite tyre. There’s a really good review on PB for them. 😀

    Another gorgeous bike mate! I love Transitions and the Covert’s a particular fave.

    My folks live about 5 hours from where Transition are based in Ferndale, WA, USA – I’ve just looked and the Covert 1 (with Fox 36 TALAS) is $4,399 which is £2700 odd quid!! Even with an Airline ticket it’d still be cheaper than buying one over here new (£4,200 approx.)…… think a visit to the states is on the cards 😉 😉 😉

    Thanks mate.

    The Covert is amazing and definitely a do everything type of bike.

    We get robbed blind in this country, everything is so much cheaper everywhere else in the world. If it wasn’t for the b(w)ankers we wouldn’t be in a recession as we pay almost double for everything. I think people in the US even get better wages than us. 😈
