    What cranks for 2016 troy, need help!

    Hey all, hopefully you can help me. I sold my Bronson and am thinking of getting a 2016 Troy. I know the rear is Boost, will my Shimano cranks work with the appropriate BB? They are standard issue SLX that came off 73mm external BB Santa Cruz. Thanks!

    Are you going 1x? The carbon doesn't have front derailleur mount while the alloy does.

    I'm using my old Shimano LX Hollowtech 2 cranks in 1x setup...seem to work fine.

    Shimano makes boost specific sizes of their cranks now, however it sounds like it's working for the guy above. Your chain line might be a little off.

    There's spacers you can use anyway if the chain is a bit off

    Cool. Yes it will be 1x10 with 40t extender. I'm really digging the Troy, just don't want to get the frame and have to dump even more into it. Thanks!
