Finally done! A couple months of waiting for parts but finally finished up the wheel build and finished the complete build last night. She's a 2014 Spitfire v2 with 650b wheels and the updated, actually functional 650b dropouts. Not sure on weight yet, but I'm guessing it'll hover around 30 lbs.

Not as pimped out as many, perhaps even most of the bikes here. But here is my 013 Enduro in its current state. Got a set of Flows to be laced up soon and might put a new post on it this year other then that I'm pretty stoked on it. The lyric was a big improvement over the stock fox.

Hehehe, it is a pretty sweet bike. Super responsive and light feeling.

Have you seen this one?

I really like the green carbon frame but the alu XP was in stock at Wentings and a bit easier on the bank account. I'm really happy with my choice!

Great looking bike that Troy. The Bike test was pretty negative which surprised me as the first gen Dixon's suspension was great and it looked like they fixed the geo (high BB) for the Troy.

Troy sizing is weird. it's really small

I'm 5'11" and the large feels compact but not too small.

I don't know if it's the wheels, suspension, or something else, but this thing climbs rough terrain so much better than my old Rune. I'm amazed at how much easier it is to ride up sections of trail that I normally have trouble on.

I still need to swap cranks and the rear rotor but here she is. :)

Someone at a shop that sells Devinci is claiming the alloy Troy STA is 2? steeper than the carbon version???
