Transition Sentinel Alloy GX Bike

  • SALE
  • Regular price £5,799.95
VAT included.

The Sentinel is a bit of a do-everything bike in the Transition range, up for all-dayers in the hills or uplift days.

Out of the box, the bike is set up with a 150 mm shock and 160 mm fork, but the bike will still handle well with a 150 or 140 mm fork, and you can change the rear shock for a shorter one to run the back at 140 mm.

Transition have given the longer-lower-slacker approach a name - "Speed Balanced Geometry" - but effectively it means short stem, slack head angle, short offset fork and a longer top tube, pretty much what you would expect from any modern enduro-orientated bike. On that note, all models can take a water bottle, though you'll need to use a fid lock bottle on the size small frame.

Never ones to shy away from a cheesy name, the Transition's "GiddyUp" suspension has fantastic small bump sensitivity and enough progression to run a coil shock without blowing through the travel. The Enduro Max bearings and additional bearing shields are a huge plus point for UK riding!

This GX spec bike has a great spec, with SRAM Code RSC brakes, Fox Performance Elite suspension and an excellent OneUp dropper post. Dropper size and bar rise vary depending on frame size.

Please note, bike specifications can change due to shortages!

Cycle to Work

UK customers - you can use the Government’s “Cycle to Work” scheme to a bike or frame from 20Twenty, and you could save 25-39%. You can buy a bike, frame, bike and accessories, or just accessories through the Cycle to Work scheme. We can even provide you with a custom-built bike through the scheme.

We use several Cycle to Work schemes, including:

There is no £1000 limit any more, though your employer might have a limit. The Green Commute Initiative website has a savings calculator.

Since most people would change their pedals from whatever the manufacturer supplied, very few bike manufacturers supply pedals with new bikes.

The good news is we have an awesome selection of both flat and clipless pedals!
