The Nimble Bruiser
Take on the biggest terrain without the penalty, Long travel doesn’t have to mean single purpose
The Spire blends DH bike capability with mid-travel efficiency in such a way it’s almost two bikes in one. A delicately tuned pedaling and pumping platform, super supple beginning stroke sensitivity and all the travel you could ask for makes for a mind bending ride. Happily climb up to your favorite challenging descent, then cruise on over to your local flow trail and you’ll be rewarded on both ends of the spectrum. Don’t be fooled though, while it’s no one-trick pony, the Spire lives to push your limits. Get in-Spired.
Speed Balanced Geometry
SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

|1. LIFETIME WARRANTY
Transition Bikes take pride in the quality of their products and are stoked to offer a lifetime warranty for the original owner and our stellar crash replacement program. We got your back so you don't have to worry about your bike.
2. FRAME MATERIALThe Spire carbon uses premium Japanese Toray fibre using a unique latex coated EPS moulding process to create tighter edge radius control using less material. The Spire alloy features a frame made from touch and dependable heat treated 6061 aluminium to strike the right balance of strength, durability and ride quality.
|3. SIZE SPECIFIC CHAINSTAYS
The Spire has two size specific chainstay lengths to provide balanced handling and rider weight distribution across the range of sizes.
|4. PIVOT TECHNOLOGY
Collet main pivot technology improves rear end stiffness and keeps your pivot hardware tight. Additional bearing shields prevent main pivot bearing contamination when washing your bike or riding in wet conditions.
|5. FRAME PROTECTION
We keep your bike rides quiet and your frame safe from damage with fully integrated, flush-mounted rubber frame protection at all critical areas. In addition to downtube and seatstay protection, the ribbed chainstay protector features expanded coverage of the rear dropout pivot area.
|6. ENDUROMAX BEARINGS
We exclusively use EnduroMAX suspension pivot specific bearings in standard sizes that are readily available worldwide. Dual bearings in standard sizing's are used at the dropout pivots for frame stiffness and additional c-clips lock the rocker bearings in place under torsional loads.
|7. GEAR ACCESSORY MOUNT
Our underside top-tube accessory mount allows you to carry a spare tube or other goodies safely on your frame in case you are looking to ditch the backpack.
|8. DUAL CROWN FORK COMPATIBLE
Both the carbon and alloy frame options are fully duel crown compatible for those wanting to dip their toes into the DH world.
|9. TYRE CLEARANCE
Ample clearance for mud and tyres up to 2.6" width.
|10. PRESS IN HEADSET
Our ZS56/ZS56 press in headset gives you the freedom to use reach adjust and angle adjust headsets for maximum adjustability. **Adjustable headsets are not supplied with Spire framesets or complete bikes.
|11. WATER BOTTLE COMPATIBILITY
We keep your water bottle clean inside the front triangle so you can keep hydrated without worrying about mud making it to your mouth.
|12. UNIVERSAL DERAILLEUR HANGER
The Spire features a SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger than protects your derailleur against the chain jams by pivoting back and out of the way, and it slips slightly when encountering impacts. It improves shifting performance, guarantees better alignment, works with all drivetrains and is available anywhere.
GIDDYUP SUSPENSION DESIGN
We want to make it as easy as possible to experience great rear suspension performance. The GiddyUp suspension system is designed to behave intuitively across a broad range of setup. Because, we get it, sometimes you just want to grab your bike and GiddyUp, without checking your setup. When you do, it will always feel good.
With nearly 23% progression and the most current evolution of our GiddyUp suspension kinematic, the Spire has an excellent balance of support and small bump sensitivity. Anti-squat is tuned to enhance pedaling performance and provides a platform to push against when pumping, without sacrificing a bottomless feel when needed.
The GiddyUp suspension layout is tuned to work correctly with both air and coil rear shocks. Riders are able to add or remove volume spacers in the rear air shock to suit their individual riding style and there is plenty of bottom out control with air or coil shocks when things get rowdy. The Spire has 170mm of rear wheel travel when used with the supplied 205mm x 65mm stroke shock. It is also possible to install a shorter, 205mm x 60mm stroke shock to decrease the rear wheel travel to 160mm if you are after a shorter travel experience.
A suggested sag range of 27 - 33% allows the rider to tune the feel of the bike; from a firm and snappy jump and slash mode, to a more supple and active full on party mode. Wherever you end up, you can focus on the trail without remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.

What is not Covered?

What if my bike has been delivered and I no longer want it?
If you purchase a bike and change your mind you must contact us within 7 days of delivery and express your intention to return your bike. Items must then be returned within 28 days of purchase.
Unwanted bikes must be returned unused, undamaged and in the original packaging (this excludes Special Orders and Custom Builds). You can either mail the bike back to us yourself or we can collect it via courier. Collecting a bike will cost you £50 for UK customers (this will be deducted from your refund amount)
For non-UK residents we will advise the return cost based on your address. We will endeavour to do this in the most cost-effective way possible for you but can make no guarantees of the costs involved. Contact us to arrange this with a member of our team.
If you decide to return the bike yourself, please make sure you get a proof of return as we cannot be held responsible for the goods lost or damaged in transit.
No refunds can be made until the goods are received and checked by our team so there may be a slight delay in processing your return.
Please see the exceptions to this returns policy outlined below.
What if I have custom build mountain bike?
When ordering a Custom Mountain Bike, you will be liaising at length with a member of our team to ensure the full specification is agreed and signed off by both parties in writing. Once agreed a non- refundable 50% deposit is taken so the build can commence. Changes to specification can be made along the way through discussions with the member of staff involved with your project and so your total build cost can fluctuate, this is no problem, however, if you decide to cancel the build completely you will lose your deposit. If the reason for the cancellation is unexpected we may be able to release some of the components to the value of your deposit back to yourself, this will be at the discretion of the shop manager.
Special order Bikes & Frames?
The following special orders are non-refundable items:
- All bike frame orders are specifically ordered for you and therefore cannot be refunded.
- All bikes / frames that are modified from the point of purchase are classified as a special order. For example, if you have selected specific parts to be fitted to your bike, have upgraded parts direct from the manufacturer such as rear shocks or have agreed to have an Invisi Kit fitted this would be classed as a special order.
- Another reason your bike may be classed as a ‘special order' could be if you are ordering a bike that is not from our normal stock, for example if it is a particularly big or small size that we do not normally carry.
You will always be informed in writing if your purchase falls under a ‘special order’ category and if for any reason after receiving the email you decide you do not want to proceed you will have 24 hours to cancel and still get any paid monies returned.

I have a warranty issue what do I do?
If you find yourself needing to return an item for a warranty inspection, you can fill in our warranty form here. This mailbox is checked regularly by a member of our mechanics team so you can be sure of a timely response. We will support you throughout the warranty process by generating returns where needed and liaising directly with the manufacturers on your behalf. You will be kept informed at every stage until your warranty is complete.
If an item is to be returned as a potential warranty issue, we will always do our very best to advise you as to our thoughts on the outcome of the inspection in advance. It is important to be aware that if an item is declined warranty by the manufacturer then you will be charged the return postage and any other costs involved. Please be aware that it is not MTB Monster Limited who determine if an item is warranty, this decision lies with the manufacturer themselves and we have no control over it.
Although we may need to have the product returned to MTB Monster Limited for inspection by a mechanic, most component warranties can be processed by your local authorised service centre. This can reduce the time taken to get the warranty processed while also saving any costs involved sending an item back to us.
Please Note: If you choose to use a shop local to yourself to have warranty work carried out, any warranty parts will normally be replaced free of charge by the manufacturer (check with the shop first). However, MTB Monster Limited will not contribute in any way to the costs involved in the labour part of the warranty or any investigational work carried out by another bike shop. If you choose to use a local shop they will charge you for labour & postage expenses as a result of the warranty work. Please be aware if you choose to use a local bike shop MTB Monster are not involved in the warranty work and have no influence on decisions or timescales made by the shop or manufacturer and MTB Monster are not liable for the work carried out by another shop. It is your responsibility to check that the shop is a authorised dealer of the brand in question and is suitabley qualified to carry out the work.
Any potential warranty issue that does need to be returned it is done so at the expense of the customer. A collection can be made through MTB Monster at a charge of £50. We will request photos of the condition of the bike prior to collection so that in the unlikely event any damage occurs in transit this is easily identified.
What is covered under warranty?
Most bikes and components are covered under warranty by the manufacturer.
Component warranties usually vary from 6 months to 3 years, these are specific to the manufacturer and details can be found in the product manuals or, on the manufacturer’s website. Bosch systems for electric bikes have a 2-year warranty.
Frames are usually warrantied for approximately 2-5 years and often lifetime warranties are offered if frames are registered. If this is offered, you can do this by visiting the manufacturers website and registering your bike after you have purchased the bike. This timeframe of warranty is determined by the manufacturer. To view the details of a brands specific bike frame warranties, please choose a brand from the list below to be directed to their website where you can view up to date information, if you have any questions, or have an issue with the link below please contact us

Below is a list of scenarios that are not covered under warranty, this list is not exhaustive but highlights the main situations when warranty is not applicable:
- Stripped pedal threads. When you receive your new bike, you will need to fit the pedals make sure you take your time and ensure you have the right pedal for each crank arm. Do not continue to thread a pedal if it is not going in easily.
- Misuse of a bike
- Damage from causes apart from defects in material. E.g., if damage is caused by crashing your bike, it will not be covered under warranty.
- Normal wear and tear. Components may show signs of wear and tear in less than two years depending on amount of use, type of use etc. Some components can be expected to reach the end of their normal lifespan within this timeframe.
- Damage to products which have been improperly installed or repaired.
- Products that have been modified, neglected or poorly maintained.
- Electric bikes that have been derestricted; this will be evident upon diagnostics testing
- Compensation for any inconvenience caused (such as time & traveling expenses) which can be associated to the repair or warranty of a bike. Additionally we would not cover the costs incurred if you choose to hire a bike whilst waiting for an investigation / resolution to take place.
- Riding the bike in a manner in which it was not intended for.
Ultimately whether or not an item is covered under warranty, is down to the individual manufacturer
