I bought a closeout late 2019, maybe technically 2020 alloy Troy frame. It has the 157mm super boost spacing, or at least it's supposed to. Already returned two frames now, first measured 164mm-ish, second was more like 161mm.

No apparent damage to the frames. Came from Jenson and were not packed great, but I think any damage would squish the rear end if anything.

First frame was absurd, wouldn't even locate the hub. Second frame you could kinda get the hub in there. Took a surprising amount of force to get the thru-axle even close to tight. Waiting for a possible third frame, hopefully they can check it first.

Any one had issues with Devinci QC, or just the 157mm stuff?

Jenson claims to have checked the remaining frames, and they were messed up as well. Second returned frame is apparently lost in shipping.

I'm a little sour on Devinci at the moment, but if any one has a 27.5 Troy in medium let me know. Can't find anything else with the same specs/geometry.

I am going to ask a silly question -- Are you using the correct hub? is your hub a 157mm SB+ hub? You cannot use a 148mm hub in a SB+ frame.

It was a 157mm super boost hub, doesn't matter now though. The second defective frame got eaten by UPS, just straight up vanished. Jenson sent me a refund after two months. I'm still just baffled at how poorly every part of it was handled.
