When the Troy was first released back in 2013 there weren't a lot of other aggressive 140mm travel trail bikes. Most bikes had more or less rear travel, but the Troy spanned that gap and established itself early on as a playful yet highly-capable ripper in the 27. 5 all-mountain category. Fast forward to the current model year and the Troy gets a new carbon frame that improves stiffness and responsiveness, as well as more progressive geometry that gives the bike some extra stability when the trail points downward. These are all good things, but what's really got us excited is that it's now available with 29-inch wheels. We're advocates for the larger wheel size as it's hard to deny the efficiency and rolling benefits associated with wagon wheels. Once you're up to speed they hold their momentum and don't get hung up as easily in braking bumps, chunky rock gardens, and generally rough terrain. Combine these advantages with DeVinci's Split Pivot suspension platform that stays fully active while braking, and the Troy Carbon 29 Mountain Bike Frame is ready to attack the trail with newfound haste.The redesigned frame is now entirely carbon fiber including the rocker link. The result is a stiffer and more responsive frame that saves about 1. 5lb compared the aluminum version. DeVinci ups the stiffness even more by moving to Super Boost 12 x 157mm rear spacing. While the transition to a new hub standard might cause a bit of uproar, the truth is that 157mm rear spacing has been around on downhill bikes for quite some time. Super Boost simply widens the hub flanges to improve the spoke bracing angle, resulting in a stiffer rear wheel that's better able to resist torsional forces caused by cornering, braking, or charging through technical terrain. This is especially noticeable on 29er wheels as they have a greater tendency to flex. In addition to these stiffness benefits, Super Boost allows DeVinci to keep the chainstays super short while still clearing a 29 x 2. 4in tire...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
