Just finished up my 2019 Troy 29:

- Size Large (about 30 lbs +- 1/2 lb w/pedals)
- Wheels - We Are One Union 30mm internal w/DT 350 hubs
- Tires - Maxxis Forkaster 2.35
- Fork is a Rock Shox Pike Ultimate
- Bars - Renthal Fat Lite 760mm wide 35mm clamp
- Stem - Renthal 40mm
- Saddle - SDG
- Post - Fox Transfer 150mm w/Shimano lever
- Drivetrain - Shimano XT M8100 12 speed
- Brakes - Shimano M8120 4 pistons w/180mm RT86 rotors
- Rear Axle - Robert Axle Project

I need to weigh the bike on a good scale but it's not that much heavier than my 2018 Django.

Definitely a fun build. I think it took longer to 3M the paint than the rest. Time well spent thought. That stuff kept a lot of scratches off my Django.

Beautiful!


Man, they really slimmed up the frame on these 3rd gen cf troys vs the 2017 spec models eh?

that top and down tube look dramatically thinner.



gorgeous build congrats!.

Thanks man. I weighed it today. Comes in right around 29.5 lbs with pedals. That’s quite a bit lighter than Devinci’s builds.

So after four rides it's been interesting! First ride was really good but was more of a shake down dealing with a couple adjustments, etc. Second ride wasn't great, suspension was not to my liking. Third ride was really good! I still was trying to get the suspension where I want it. Fork bottomed a bit too easily and discovered there was no volume spacers in so I added one. Went out today and fork was better and bike felt really balanced.

Couple things I noticed so far. This is a big feeling bike which I like but it's not hard to maneuver tight trails. Rear suspension is pretty efficient but there's definitely a sweet spot with sag. I'm pretty sure I am either right on it or damn close. I added 5 psi today for a little more support in the mid stroke. Bike climbs nasty trails really well. Just hammer into whatever it is and you'll be rewarded.

So, this bike is stiff AF. I'm not sure I'd recommend it to anyone new to the sport or someone that rides really casual. It definitely rewards fitness and power and punishes you if you're sloppy or tired. So far, my Strava times are right there with my Django.

Shimano XT is awesome. It's so good there's nothing really else to say except buy it!

Looks good! Lets see some pics with it in the dirt.

23 mile ride today. I'm destroyed. Finally took some paint off the frame today so break-in is complete.


Bike is a lot better than I am. It's really capable climbing nasty trails.

Ouch! That's a good. Adds character!

Some changes for 2021. Dropped the Pike and went to a 2021 Fox 36 and a 2.6” XR4 up front. It’s definitely heavier but I’m sure it’ll be stout. Also went from a 51mm offset to 44mm so I’m hoping for a little more grip on the turns.

It’s a 150mm. Definitely wanted to keep the handling on the quicker side for the tight stuff.
