Transition TR500 FMD Team Build

Enquire Now


At The Bicycle Service, we are in a privileged position with owner Matt being the mechanic for DH princess Tahnée Seagrave. Having worked with Tahnée since she won her junior World Championship title in 2013, Matt was at the forefront when FMD Racing signed up to become to factory race team for Transition Bikes. Matt knows the TR500 inside out and can set the bike up for your personal ride style, size and weight. This really is one of the fasted most nimble bikes on the circuit.
