18 Bikes That Could Be Updated in 2024
Agreed... my favorite FS bike period. I think I'm going to buy another Troy frame if I can find a ghost purple in good shape. The Gen 6 Trek Fuel EX is a slightly lighter weight frame that is *very* close to the Devinci Troy is suspension design and geo... and the Fuel EX won a bunch of bike of year awards, right?. I think no one really reviewed the Troy seriously or the magic of this frame would be more widely known. I ran my Troy with a coil and Nobl TR41's... so good. Never should of sold it. The Django is similarly pretty awesome I have heard... the guy i sold my Troy to raced enduro's on a Django and bought my Troy to handle rowdier courses better.

Field Test: Trek Fuel EX - Evolution Underlined
The new Fuel EX looks a lot like the 2021-2022 Devinci Troy... same split pivot 140mm rear travel with kinematics that look to be remarkably similar. I owned a Devinci Troy for a little while and it is a brilliant bike that does not get enough good press, in the US at least. I loved my Troy for the very short time I had it (check pics in my profile) but I knew I was riding it at like 50% of its capability, if that... felt bad for the bike and sold it to guy who raced for Devinci. A lighter version of the Troy would be an awesome trail / light-all-mountain bike. So it makes sense that the Fuel EX is pretty darn good.

Review: Reeb's SST Does it Differently
The REEB Squeeb is also a pretty dope bike... may be my next frame. Once you get over the slightly higher weight on paper, and just ride it... you realize that everything about the frame is just dialed: great suspension design, great balance, extremely comfortable climbing up steep stuff.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
@bikewriter: Yeah I expected to really like the Ripmo V2 but didn't... sold the bike. But I bought a L and maybe should have tried a XL... oh well. I saved up for a long time for the Wayward V2 frame and built it up as I could afford it; I love it. It is the bike I ride the most.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
@bikewriter: yeah I had a Devinci Troy, which I loved (and sold like an idiot, but i did make like 2k on the sale... but wasn't worth it in hindsight). The Troy was a magic bike for me and doesn't get enough good press, IMO. Rode the Django for a ride or two, which just felt like a llighter and less burly Troy to me but with the same general dynamics. Went from the Troy to a Ripmo and didn't get along with the Ripmo... for me, the Troy was better in every area except pedaling efficiency... but I preferred climbing on the Troy because it was so comfortable on long or steep climbs (steeper seat tube angle and longer chain stays)... better traction on tech climbing too. I am riding a Rascal right now with a 150mm Lyrik up front. I seriously climb almost as fast on my Rascal as I do on my 29+ Why Cycles Wayward (which is a super fun hardtail, btw). Rascal downhill far exceeds my capability... I know several folks who Enduro and light DH on a Rascal with a Fox36 or Lyrik. Used to have a SB5.5 which I has zero problems with but was an older geo bike... hated climbing steep stuff on it but the SB5.5 was really fun every where else. But again, IMO, the Troy was better than the SB5.5 everywhere (I owned those two bikes at the same time). I feel like any 120mm DC/trail bike that comes out has to justify its price/performance against the Ripley, Spur, Rascal, and Trail 429 (plus a few others I'm probably missing).

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
I feel like this review is purposely stepping around many of the elephants in the room. For instance, the Revel Rascal which is 1000 USD less money and, while a 130mm rear travel bike, is an extremely efficient pedaling bike and can get on the gas downhill as well. Or... a used SB130? I also feel like no one knows the Devinci Django exists (no one reviews it?), which is an awesome 120mm bike. I could go on but why?... I think many of us are thinking the same thing.

Ibis Ripmo Large, Grey

$6800 USD
Selling 2021 Large Ripmo in in *basically* new condition. Price is reasonably firm; if I don’t get close to asking price, I’ll just keep ridding it! Potentially interested in trading for an awesome FS bike or hardtail. The Ripmo is a great trail/all-mountain bike. I really like it but something more XC is where I'm headed. The frame is not registered, and I can help with that. I’m selling local pick-up only for now, open to shipping it later if it doesn't sell local. I will be open to sell the frame only or frame and other components in another week or so, if the complete bike doesn't sell. SPECS: Fork: New 36 Factory 29" GRIP2 15x110 - 44mm Offset - 2021 ID: D66J Rear Shock: New 2021 Fox X2 Factory 2-Pos, 2021 ID: D7J4 Shifter: SRAM Eagle GX 12 speed Rear Derailleur: SRAM Eagle GX 10/52 Crankset: SRAM Eagle GX Alloy 175mm Chainring: OneUp 32T Oval Switch (completely dope... you can switch the chain ring in 5 minutes without taking off the cranks), will also provide the stock SRAM GX chain ring. Chain: SRAM Eagle GX Bottom Bracket: SRAM Eagle GX Brakes: SRAM Code RSC 203 front / 180 rear Handlebar: Ibis 31.8mm 800mm width Stem: Ibis 40mm ( I think) Saddle: WTB Silverado, very comfy Seatpost: Bike Yoke 175mm (can fit a longer dropper) Wheels: Ibis S35 alloy, brand new never ridden (upgrade option available) Tires: Maxxis Assegai 3C MaxGrip 2.5WT front and rear (brand new never ridden) Pedals not included in price but optional. OPTIONS FOR THE BIKE: The bike is pictured with crankbrothers carbon synthesis rims on factor hubs with an 2.5 Assegai up front and an 2.5 aggressor in the rear. I’d be willing to sell the bike with these rims for another ~1000 USD. Handle-bar level is set up about medium height right now. I have some new OneUp carbon bars in 20mm and 35mm rise, and a 35mm stem, that I could swap or sell to you to get the stack where you want. We can discuss price for that.

Spot ACME Large belt drive, disc brakes

$500 USD
Selling a Spot 2013 Acme complete bike, size large (~57cm). Price is reasonably firm... I think this is a good price for a belt drive, disc brake bike. Please contact me through pinkbike first and then we can text/talk. This bike is very lightly used and is in excellent to good shape. I bought this to commute on a long time ago and then moved shortly after buying it. This bike is designed around using disk brakes and Gate belt drive system and has on old Shimano Alfine 7-speed internal gear rear hub. The gear hub is still in pretty good condition all though the shifting needs a tune up and I haven’t been able to get it fully dialed in. This would be an awesome belt drive, disc brake single speed for commuting and scooting around town (almost completely maintenance free). It is light and is easy to hike up stairs and so on. It has 700x32mm tires and can fit up to 38mm tires, I think.
