    Devinci Troy 29er

    Devinci put out a new 29er model today. Looks to be promising.

    DEVINCI - TROY CARBON 29 X01 EAGLE



    Best Source for Ibis, Devinci, and Ventana!
    Velorangutan... the pedal type.
    Motorangutan... the motorized type.

    Nice short summary on Blister:

    First Look: 2019 Devinci Troy | Blister Gear Review - Skis, Snowboards, Mountain Bikes, Climbing, Kayaking

    There's an NX12 model at $4500. I dig that mint color!

    WTF is up with the lower shock mount/lower DT area? Ugh. Need trunion mount to save space?!?! They want the DT to hit rocks? Sorry but this isn't a cohesive design, it's just a weird looking bike.

    157 spacing and only clearance for a 2.4" tyre? Hope it's a Conti 2.4 and not a Maxxis....

    Devinci certainly seems to make a refined machine in my mind. I'm afraid if I owned one I wouldn't ride it for fear of getting a scratch. Maybe this is one reason I prefer the punk rockability of Guerrilla Gravity's offerings.

    Agree this is not making sense at all. This bike should be able to handle at least a 2.6" tire. Not saying the specs are wrong, just saying in 2018 it's crazy to produce a bike that can't run at least 2.6" -- preferably even bigger.

    Yup I agree actually, I worry about rocks hitting my frame and wheels whereas on my alloy bikes I never really worried. Especially on the raw ones.

    It does seem like an oversight with the tyre clearance too.

    It's heavy, that lower shock mount is fugly as all get out and yeah the restricted tyre clearance in the back is a real head scratcher.
    Devinci, I am so disapoint!

    Long seat tube (even tho everyone has a 175mm dropper now), "average" angles and CS length, outdated 51mm offset fork, worthless "super boost" and weighs nearly 2 pounds heavier than comparable bikes in the trail class. Then there is what should be Canadian $ prices but they are, in fact, US $'s and... I'll pass. Seems like they designed this bike in 2016.
    UPDATE: They have an GT "LTD" build with a 160mm Lyrik with a proper 42mm offset which slackens the Troy out to 65.5... NOW we are talking! Still hard for me to wrap my head around their use of Super Boost, the added weight (ESPECIALLY with no remote resy rear shock!), and the cost.

    Have FUN!

    Dissing this bikes angles or hub standards... kinda pointless unless you have ridden. Did 2.5 hour tech ride on one today... Decent acceleration for a mid travel 29er (DWlink... er..., split pivot...) sporting 35mm internal rims. And it definately got me up, over and down stuff with more ease and control than my Switchblade. Pretty fun bike for being so capable.
