    New Devinci Troy - Bike Pics

    Hey guys the one thing this forum lacks in is pictures. As such I thought I'd post up some pics of my new Troy. I'll give a ride report after I've had a chance to acccurately set up the suspension and ride the the Troy on varying trail conditions.

    Just as an fyi the measured head angle with a 160mm fork is 65.75deg and the bottom bracket height is 13.25".

    I just finished my first ride on trails here in the area that are relatively smooth but with some chatter with fast tight corners, some bermed some without. The bike rode great but I'm still trying to get the susension dialed in (I'm really close) and learning where my body needs to be to optimize corning. My next step is to ride on some technically nasty trails to dial in the suspension that much more. Once I get everything dialed I'll write a more detailed ride report with a DHr's trail bike/enduro race slant to it vs. just a trail bike ride report.

    One thing I can say for sure is this bike does not need a propedal switch to climb efficiently. With that said I was playing with the climb switch on the double barrel air and all I can say is that little lever is for real and would be a great tool for those bikes that need propedal assistance for climbing. It's not just a compression lock out switch like all of the other shock offerings out there - it just adds an entirely different dimension of shock tune involving rebound control.

    Thank you for all of the compliments guys. Had my Nomad not been stolen last month I would have never ended up with a bike like this. I guess what some say is true - Good things come out of bad things.

    The bike with pedals, as shown in the photos weighs 26.96lbs.

    Just as an fyi KRob if it wasn't for your Outer Bike ride report I probably wouldn't have ended up with the Troy - So thank you!

    You're welcome. It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it. I was frankly surprised at how much I liked the Troy. If I were buying it I'd stress a bit about which size to get. The medium felt great for the stand up, bmx, pump track type ride I did on it, but for the long climbs I do here locally I think it might be a bit short and there would be quite a bit of exposed seat post much of the time...... but the large sounds very long at 24.7" Which size did you got with? I saw some discussion on sizing in the other Troy review thread for folks right around six feet.

    Hope you get the CCDB air sorted out. It's a great shock, but with all its adjustments it can be set up to perform very poorly too.

    Anyway the Troy is a very pretty bike. Really nice lines and with the full carbon and Enve wheels you've caused me to have some serious bike envy. Great photography as well. Did you shoot those?

    It's funny that you brought up sizing - I"m 5'-8" and was concerned about what size to get after reviewing the geo chart thinking I may need to go to a small. My bike shop recommended that I go with a medium which I'm glad I did as it fits me very nicely, giving me a little more room compared to my Nomad. I personally think that Devinci's published geo numbers are wrong because the TT and reach measurements indicate that a medium would be a size large with other manufactures.

    The shop that built my bike takes pictures of custom builds and posts them on their website and facebook.

    They also built up a really nice Dixon last week who's photos are now posted: Fanatik Bike Co. - Bellingham Wa - Intense, Turner, Ibis, Santa Cruz, Morewood, Evil, Cannondale, Norco, Felt, Surly...

    GFreak, you're right about the troy geo chart.
    I took a tape measure to a medium trop at my local bike shop, and the effective top tube was around a little more than a half inch shorter than the geo chart says. I thought looking at the chart that I'd be ok on a medium at 5'11.5", but when I was pedaling around, I felt a little too cramped. The height sizing guide on the website does say at my height, I should be on a large.

    Absolutely gorgeous build, congrats. Building something very similar in a Mach 6 right now. Also coming from a bike theft that forced the upgrade. Hopefully I will see it in person somewhere around the NW!

    Saw that bike on vital, if I had the $$ it would be tough to top that build, very, very nice.

    How does it climb with the 160 fork? are you using travel adjust a lot?

    Congrats on a rad build.

    Sounds like you and I need to go bike thief hunting together!

    The Mach 6 was the other bike I was looking at although the decision was made easy for me when I learned my shop stopped carrying Pivot. Nonetheless there are so many great bikes out there these days I think it's hard to pick the wrong bike.

    I hope to see you on the trails as well, maybe if you go with the Mach 6 we can switch bikes for a bit.

    The weight is 26.96lbs as pictured.

    The bike climbs well with the 160mm fork. I'm coming from a Nomad with a custom 2 degree angleset and 170mm fork so I've adjusted my climbing style to compensate climbing on slack bikes.

    I would enjoy that. I stop by your bike shop just about every time I am up in Bellingham for a kids soccer or baseball tournament, but I have not ridden the trails up there. Dumb, I know...well worth a 90 minute drive up. Pretty spoiled in Issaquah with the great trails around here.

    I actually live in Kirkland, I bet we've seen each other on the trails and not known it.

    Devinci has improperly published geo numbers - There should be properly measured numbers released very soon...
    I have several pending sales on Troys right now, waiting on that info...I'll post as soon as I hear back from them.
    Speaking of which - next shipment should be ready mid-December - who else wants one?

    I just bought one of these beauties, waiting for my new mail order bride to make it through customs. I will say that my build will be incredibly similar to GFreak's build. As far as fit or geo numbers, it was a bit strange on paper. Longer top tube, but a good reach. With a 70mm stem, the fit will be spot on for me at 5-11.

    Right On! Please post pictures.

    Btw pulpwoody, nice review on the Troy in the "Canadian Bike" forum - After having 4 rides on my bike I think you were spot on with your review.
