    Just ordered a 2016 Troy Carbon SX. What am I in for?

    To replace my 2009 GT Force Carbon Expert.
    In black/green. Looks like black/yellow to me. Any advice for upgrades? lol
    Wheels, tires, larger rotors? What? Ride it first? lol

    I wasn't a fan of the grips - also potentially a smaller granny gear .

    Rest is pretty damn good.

    Enjoy!

    I have that frame and it does look yellow. I built it up custom, 1x11, carbon hoops, etc., and went with 160 fork and a single offset bushing. low and slack.

    Also, added 3 bands to the monarch. Let's me run it without alot of air, and ramps up on big hits nicely.

    You'll love it, congrats and enjoy!

    I was thinking Stan's Flow MK3. The reviews of the DT Swiss M1900's aren't very good. Hubs self destructing ect.
    Are the Stan's hubs good quality?

    How different is the POE compared to the Stan's NEO?
    Stan's NoTubes - NEO and NEO Ultimate Hubs
    Also, are the Stan's hubs quieter?

    The DT are 16 degree (23 poe), and they use a pawls system in lieu of their stars Ratchet System. My old bike was 12 degree wich I dislike bigtime, so it was a bit of a turn off at first. I went with Nobl rims on hope4. Now I'm a happy camper.
    Major upgrade in POE departement with the NEO and huge with the Ultimate. Can't say more, I don't have any experience with Stan.
