You riding the new enduro Jerry? If so how are you like that? I'm loving the idea of a longer travel trail bike. It's also on my short list. Hate the color Canada ended up getting though.

Some very nice velocipedes here.
A few weeks back I found an unridden 2016 Devinci troy carbon rr for sale with a few changes.
160mm dp pike and piggyback rear, xx1, x01 transmission, xo trail brakes.
I've added a oneup 30 oval and 44.

Enjoy your bike trip to Sedona (jealous is an understatement)

Except it snowed :(

I got a little better deal than that.
Someone built it up for his wife's Christmas present and she didn't want it.

The only difference with the 2017s is paint.

Mmmhhm. That Troy is a nice bike!

It sports a 200x51mm shock, as far as I can tell.

Would one be able to mount a 200x57mm and NOT have some catastrophic failure under full compression?

Cheers

I ride like a pussy he should give it to me.

Yes, dude at Dunbar looked it up in his 'puter said you could still get frame only in that colour. Sounded like not only was there left over stock but they were still making them. End of run to use up paint/decals maybe?

I'm riding a prototype Enduro right now but did come off a 2015 Enduro which I really liked for everything. I can't say enough about how geo changes everything. Probably the most important thing on a bike. I like things super low, super slack and long(ish) but that depends on how aggressive you are and the terrain you are in.

Feels pretty similar to me, I /we should have a look at the gear ratio charts to compare.
I'm already thinking of phasing out my Sram 11-42 for a Shimano 11-46 on my Yeti once the Sram Cassette wears.

I don't think you are going to like these numbers if you are wanting to drop SRAM.

The graphic shows the gearing inches for a 27" wheel.

The 28 ring with the 42 cog is the best climber

The 30 ring with the 10 cog is the highest speed.

The Shimano 46t xt cassette is middle ground on both ends (not a huge difference really), BUT it is an absolute boat anchor when compared to the SRAM cassette.

439g Shimano XT 11t-46t cassette

268g for XO1 10t-42t cassette

For reference a RF Cinch DM ring 30t is 54g

There is a 1/3 pound difference (171g) in the cassette weight. I’d stick with a Sram cassette and pedal a little harder on the climb.

OneUp has a 10t conversion for Shimano now

So a 32x46 is 18.8 and I struggle w/a 26x42 wonder how close to the 18.0 of the 28x42 the 30x46 is or I could even get away with 28x46 and not induce much pedal feedback w/a split pivot I reckon got a link to that chart?

Too Funny Dean, I was looking into just this earlier today……

I checked my gear ratio charts and its shows the Shimano XT 11-46 cassette with a 32 ring to be comparable to the Sram 11-42 with a 28 ring, buy yah LOL , I saw the weight penalty for the XT cassette and I choked. I will be installing my Sram 11-42 cassette and my spare 28 tooth ring asap. That's 1/4 to 1/3 a pound saved right there!
However, once I chew up the 42 tooth I will put a One Up 44 on and jump from 28 ring to a 30 and should still have the same climbing ratio but a little on the top end which can only help

I live with the extra weight and have a more durable cassette , my light weight cassettes all have broken teeth from rocks bouncing of it , plus I prefer the ability to take the cassette apart to clean or repair a damaged tooth .
