New look for the Troy

Looking good! Let's see the whole bike! I also considered having the frame painted, but ended up just doing some black/orange vinyl highlights instead since I did not want to wait to build it up.

You are going to like it with the coil! How much do you weigh and what spring are you running? I'm about 190lbs and started on a 500lb spring, and now have the 550 on it. Seems a little more supported through the mid stroke now. I was at about 33-34% sag, and am now sitting around 29%. No noticeable difference to the buttery feeling off the top. I will probably stick with the 550.

Didn't take long to paint a brand new bike! Body guy I'm guessing? Looking forward to an overall pic

Yah I am not a big fan of the stock colors but I love the bike. Buddy own's a body shop and custom paints bikes.

I have been running the coil for awhile after the X2 and I prefer it. Riding weight is 195 and I am running a 550 spring.

It is a black base with metallic copper. It changes color a lot based on lighting. I will post a pic soon as I finish building it up later today.

We're about the same weight and I'm running a 550lb on my CCDB. I haven't gotten around to measuring sag but it feels pretty spot on, perhaps a bit soft if anything but this is my first coil shock, maybe that's a result of the plushness. I'm also shedding body weight pretty quick now that it's riding season so that comes with the positive side effect of my suspension firming up as my riding improves.

Hopefully you carried it out there and carried it back before mounting it back on the wall.
