Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
It’s 65.5 with a 160mm fork and in the low setting. The geo chart is for a 150mm fork.

First Look: Fox Racing's Fall 2018 Outerwear
Well, if you look at how much a Gucci coat actually costs these prices seem very reasonable. $5,500 for a houndstooth trench coat with a NY Yankess emblem sewn to it? Now that's silly. Also, Fox do offer rain jackets that are less expensive and still have many of the same features.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
Yep, the Spartan was included as part of our Whistler Field Test - you'll be able to see what we thought about that bike a little later this year.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
I've ridden plenty of bikes where I've thought the same thing, but that honestly never crossed my mind on the Troy. The rear shock tune felt really good on chunky sections of trail, and there was plenty of traction to keep the wheel tracking well in wet conditions. A coil could potentially increase the amount of grip even further, but then you'd be adding more weight, and losing a little bit of the poppiness that comes from an air spring.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
A shorter fork would help tip the scales a little bit, but I think it'd still feel like a better descender than climber. The stiff frame, bigger tires, and overall weight make it better suited for riders that prioritize the descent, even if it was set up at 150 / 150.

I'm confused - you're asking for us to review a company's marketing? And I'd be interested to hear exactly which part of this review you thought was 'bullshit'.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
You guys put the tinfoil hats on for this article? That’s quite the stretch.

Review: Bontrager SE4 2.6" Tire
@drunknride, I realize heavier riders run more pressure - my point is that running these 2.6" tires on wider rims at 30 psi would feel very hard, even for a bigger rider. Tire pressures are also terrain dependent - where I live there are more roots than rocks, and it's wet for a good portion of the year. That means I can get away with running lower pressures, compared to if I was somewhere super rocky and hardpacked. At the end of the day, it's all about doing a little experimentation to figure out what works best for you and your riding style. We mention the pressures used in review articles as a point of reference, not a hard and fast rule.
