Devinci Troy Carbon custom high spec

$1345 GBP
Selling my Devinci Troy that i built up from frame only so unique top spec with upgraded parts as i went Spec as follows: Marzocchi 350 NCR 160mm (adjustable down in 10mm increments internally if wanted) brand new in late 2017 Cane creek DBair IL shock, this was upgraded with all new parts in early 2018 to the new design, this shock makes the bike soak everything up. Wheelset; Hope pro4 straight pull hubs with DT swiss aerolite bladed spokes laced to Spank oozy 345 rim front and oozy 295 rim rear 27.5" Shimano XTR M988 disc brakes with finned pads and 200/180mm floating discs Shimano XT 11 speed gears with 11-46 large range cassette. Raceface Turbine dropper post 125mm Raceface Turbine crankset with Renthal 32t chainring Schwalbe Magic Mary adix soft front tyre, Bontrager SE4 rear, both wheels setup tubeless but back tyre got a small nick in it so had to put a tube in. Charge spoon saddle, does have some damage but still works fine. Red matching details like seat clamp, crank boots, gear/dropper cables Frame has a full invisiframe kit on it and has since new, some bits have dirt under or pealed up a little but frame underneath is fine, only small marks as can be expected on small areas where the tape doesn't cover, only note is some of the internal cable routing ports have some wear from the cables. Size large but compared to the new longer frames it comes up more like a medium so anyone around a medium-large will be fine (i'm 5'10) it is also setup a little slacker than standard due to the fork at 160mm so head angle more like 66 rather than the 67 standard, this can be adjusted if you want though, but this bike is alot more capable than its 140 rear travel suggest but still climbs brilliantly. I am open to the idea of splitting the bike or selling as frame only or just some parts but would have to be the right offer, would prefer pickup but can arrange postage if needed. any questions let me know.

Brook Macdonald vs Laurie Greenland: 2 Mondraker Summums Head to Head
It's mentioned a few times how they both want to be low on the bike and brook even has a custom low stack headset and yet they both run quite high 30mm rise bars, i'm intrigued why?

Hey Pinkbike; Why isn't Isla Short (who just came 15th and was 22nd at Rd 1) not an option on the XC fantasy league, i wanted to pick her from the start.

I'd go conventional (non Evo) but with the slack head angle and steep seat tube from the Evo. Interestingly they both seem to agree there is such a thing as too low.

I find it impossible to look past building a wheel set with quality Hope pro 4 hubs (with your choice of colour), lightweight spokes and an alloy rim of your choice (Spank rims personally) all for about £400, its a dreamy and personalised wheel build all for way less money than the majority of off the shelf alloy wheel sets. Its a no brainer!

Review: SRAM's New G2 Ultimate Brakes
“good choice for anyone who doesn't need Code-like power“ Never understood why the Guides exists, why not just buy Codes, why not have all the power possible, If you want to save weight and don’t need power, buy a 2piston brake, if you need the power, buy the powerful 4piston ones, brakes are not an area you can save much weight so why bother, power is much more important.
