For sale I have a 2012 Devinci Wilson XP downhill mountain bike. The bike is a size medium frame, and is in fantastic condition mechanically. The frame was made in Quebec at Devinci, and is built very well. Apart from being a very beautiful bike to look at, it is built incredibly strong, to be ridden on proper downhill tracks. The frame is cosmetically in quite good condition for a downhill bike. There are a couple paint chips that can be seen in photos on the top tube, above the "V" in Devinci. There are a few other paint chips on the bike if you look through photos. A bit of heel rub just below "WLSN" on the drive side seatstay. Some evidence of chainslap to right of foam chainstay protector, just above chainguide idler. The rear seatstay, by the rear fender has a bit of clear protection tape still on the frame. It was on the whole seatstay on the drive side, and was installed by bike shop I bought it from. It was peeling a bit towards rear, and I wanted to remove it fully, but it wasn't coming off that area easily, so I cut around it and left that piece there. Also, on the underside of the downtube, past the "I" i Devinci to the headtube has scuffing in the paintwork under the bike, from the Gondola at Mountain Creek. This isn't visible unless the bike is upside down. Most of these cosmetic imperfections are fairly typical of a downhill bike, and don't take away from how the bike rides. The bike is a size medium frame. At 6'0" tall, it was a tiny bit small for me, but once I was riding downhill trails, I liked the size of it a lot. It felt very nimble, agile, but also can plow through very rocky terrain easily. The bike would be great for 5'6" to 6'0" range. I was comfortable on the bike at 6' tall, but I could have fit a size large also. Geometry charts for sizing questions can be found at Devinci's website, search 2012.Devinci on website archives for geometry chart on frame. (Can't hyperlink directly through ebay). Mechanically, the bike is in very good condition. I upgraded a lot of parts on the bike from the stock XP build, and all the parts I upgraded are still in great condition. The fork could probably use new lower seals eventually. The fork still rides very smooth, but leaks a bit of grease on the left stantion (spring side) after a few runs. This doesn't affect how the suspension rides, since it is on the spring side, not the damper side, just evidence that the seal has a tiny leakage. It may be a worthwhile investment on the bike to upgrade with a charger damper kit while doing the fork service to get the modern damper from Rockshox, whilst keeping the same fork. All the frame pivots and rear shock bushings are in great shape. The suspension feels tight, and there is no play or creaking in any of the pivots. The bike has adjustable geometry at the rear axle. It is adjustable from 64 degree head angle to 64.7 degree. This also raises or lowers BB height. Bike is currently in the low setting. Here is list of various parts the bike currently has: Rock Shox Boxxer RC fork. Fox Van RC Rear Shock (275 LB Spring, approximately for rider 150lbs to 180lbs). Easton Havoc Wheelset. Continental Der Kaiser Projekt Tires. (26x2.4') Center treads have bit of wear, but side knobs all good condition. Avid Code R Brakes - Brakes are 10/10, very good condition, very powerful, but smooth. They are 4 piston brakes, with 200mm rotors. Shimano Saint M820 crankset (36 tooth front chainring). Crankset has small amount of paint shoe rub, but still looks great. Shimano Saint M820 Rear derailleur. It has clutch mechanism, and keeps chain from rattling as much in rough trails. Very nice derailleur. Shimano Saint M820 Shifter. Crank Brothers Mallet 3 Pedals. I will include a set of cleats also for the pedals. Shimano Ultegra 10 Speed rear cassette (11x28). Great condition. Shimano XTR Chain (10 Speed). Same condition as cassette. Chromag Fubars OSX handlebars. They are 780 mm wide, and look great! Chromag Moon Saddle. It has titanium rails, and is very nice looking. Truvativ Holzfeller direct mount stem. ODI SDG Red Grips E13 LS1+ Chain guide. Great condition, no damage at all. Devinci has integrated a nice aluminum downtube frame protector, and plastic rear fender also. Overall the bike has a couple cosmetic blemishes, but is mechanically in very good condition. Apart from eventually needing a fork service, there isn't really anything the bike will need. Just hop on and start ripping downhill trails. I have always thought the Devinci Wilson was one of the best looking downhill bikes out there. It still looks fantastic today! The Split Pivot suspension design from Dave Weagle is a great asset on the bike, and helps it feel great to blast on the downhills. I think I covered everything regarding the bikes current condition and history, but if you have any other questions about it, feel free to reach out. I am happy to help. Thanks for looking!
