    2015 vs 2016 Troy carbon

    So i can get the 2015 Troy carbon frameset at a significant cost reduction over the 2016 model. I have a nice set of carbon wheels already built up that are 12 x 142, and the 2016 model would require me to factor in the cost of a boost hub and wheel build in the costs. I'm coming off a carbon SC Solo/5010 which is perfect other than the top tube being too short for me (24" according to SC geo chart). I run a 60mm fwiw...

    Assuming i would go to a size L Troy but cant find a geo chart for the 2015 model. 2016 looks to be around 24.6 which would be perfect.

    Any reason i shouldnt save the bucks and go for 2015? I'm not light (230lbs) but dont ride too hard, but i do notice frame flex in a lot of bikes.

    Thoughts?? Thanks in advance

    Here's a link from the archives on the Devinci site DEVINCI

    Pretty sure the top tube on the 2015 is shorter than the 2016. Also notice at the bottom of the geo chart where the longer of the 2 top tube measurements is done with a 20mm offset post.

    All the 2016 Troy's have 20mm longer top tubes than their equivalent 2015 models. The 2015 cockpits are quite a bit tighter feeling

    What he said. But I recently just got a 2015 frame on a great deal, ordered a size up cause I heard they felt a little short. Usually ride a M but got a L. I love the ride so far.
