It is going to be Transit week. I found enough good stuff to use.
Transit started out as a wheel company that quickly switched over to boards in 1998. Mike Vallely was unhappy at Powell and was looking to do something else. The allure of working out of his home state of New Jersey was too much to pass up and thus Transit was started. The team included Stacy Lowery, Charlie Wilkins, and Tom Boyle. J.R. Neves and Rocky Norton were on as amateurs. The brand didn't last very long and was gone by late 1998.
Welcome back, Chops.
For the photos, Kramer is by Adam Wallcavage, Dove is by Ryan Gee, and Vogt is by Dave Malenfant.
