Fresh off his win at Mont-Sainte-Anne, we caught up with Steve Smith just as he was about to head up for A-Line practice laps on a brand new bike. Stevie will be defending his Air DH title on the 2014 Devinci Troy, a 140mm 650B frame with a Pike up front. He won’t be defending his Crankworx triple crown, as he opted to skip today’s Garbanzo DH.

Stevie won the Air DH last year on Devinci’s 145mm 26″ platform, the Dixon. Now he’s gone carbon and tweener wheels with the Troy.

Smith said the bike was named the Chainsaw Massacre during development, but will see production as the Troy.

Internal cable routing with internal guides to keep things quiet and easy to maintain, and that sexy superficial carbon layer.

More carbon goodness.

Stevie’s running a RockShox Monarch Plus for rear squish.

The business end of Weagle’s design. Carbon seat stay and concentric single pivot.

Dat $tache.


Stevie is hot off a win at MSA and it’d be great to see him reap some rewards at Crankworx as well. Oh yeah, nice bike too!

    They should keep the original name CHAINSAW MASSACRE!!!! Way cooler than Troy. Nice bike though!

    Agreed. I said the same thing to the guys at the booth yesterday.
