Already the model name of Repeater NX reveals what this bike was designed for. The Repeater was built to be able to repeat the single trail descents as often as possible.
Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. The natural motor control and the harmonious power output characterise the character of the Shimano motor. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Repeater NX in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (10000) .

The good Rock Shox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. On rough descents, the moderate chassis limits you and demands a more precise line choice than bikes with better chassis. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the brakes, Transition middle class four pistons brakes by Magura are used. Wide tires provide more grip and comfort. Transition tends to fit narrow tires with its #reifen_inch_breite Transition tires. For an All Mountain, we would prefer wider treads. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. When it comes to the geometry, Transition does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Overall, the Transition developers have done a great job with a very god geometry.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Transition Repeater NX

If you want to experience the much-vaunted uphill flow, the Repeater NX is a hot candidate for you. Overall, the Repeater NX due to an outstanding geometry and a good motor is a good climber for tours on insanely technical trails. But with an average groupset and a moderate range there are also criticisms that come with the overall package.
