Steve Smith was killing it last night on the Dual Slalom course while riding a new hardtail to Evil Bikes fleet, the Order. I went over some information with Gabe Fox on the Order, so here is a brief overview of the new frame.

Check inside for the 2011 Evil Order...

Evil Bikes is still a fairly new company but they have a massive presence in the downhill world with their Evil Revolt frame. This season the MS Evil team has been racing the Evil Order on the 4x and Dual Slalom courses, but haven't released to much information on it to date. Here is a quick overview of the 2011 Evil Revolt, more information including pricing, and geo coming soon.

 Soooo is it just me or does anyone else think Evil should fix their downhill bikes before putting a new bike out? I just would not want a bike where I had to be concerned about the frame cracking!
  • - 1
 tbf any frame can crack so if your that worried i would be concerned with your frame cracking
  • + 7
 This news kinda pisses me off. Me and another customer have been waiting on a Revolt frame for months! My buddy since December. The Evil hype machine rolls on it seems, but when it comes to getting product; epic fail. Bring on the negative props, but I speak the truth.

 I rode an Evil Sovereign so I know they're good bikes but I totally agree with UncleCliffy, there's more hype surrounding Evil bikes than you could fit in a Toyota Tacoma and £600 is too much for a 4130 frame even with nice dropouts.
  • + 3
 Thank you Cliff... Do not get me wrong, the Evil Revolts are amazing but they are not made to last more then one season without cracking and if your main DH bike is cracking i think you should resolve that problem before releasing a new Hardtail or something...

 They obviously have a major QC/Design issue. I know of at least 4 of my fiends bikes have broken and have heard of many many more. Not to mention they are struggling to keep up with demand and when you finally do get your bike you have to worry about durability issues. I agree the Revolts are amazing but customer service and quality should always be #1. A lot of frame mfg companies go to market way to quick with products without proper durability testing of workhorse bucks. for a $3000+ frame with very little warranty that is just unacceptable. In this case how much durability testing did they do are they going to have issues wit this one too? One they start having issues You have to ask especially if you are paying a premium.

 they have nearly the worst (and least often updated) website going.... between the frame issues, very seriously delivery (which have been ongoing for a long time)and terrible support... I wouldn't spend my hard earned money on a risk item like that... there are simply too many other options going these days.

 Are they ever going to actually release it? 'Order' has been on the menu in one form or another since '09 and still not available. Looks 100% better than the early one with the long seat tube and brace.

 yah but ppl who ride dont just ride bikes... pb knows that thats y in buysell they have this slot were you can sell other shit like snowboards and skiis or what ever whocares if we talk about hte truck
  • + 1
 That truck is just much cooler than that bike. Period. All hardtails look the same to me. The older generation of Toyota Tacoma's are just so much better than any truck that has ever been made. They deserve all the props in the world.

 Backwards?

 wrong side. Should be non-drive.

 It is actually better putting it on the drive side, less chance of it slipping under braking.

 do you think you could put a 160/180 mm fork on this?
  • + 2
 If you are trying to ruin the bike!
  • - 1
 An Evil Sovereign would be way better for taking a 160mm fork plus it's steel which will mean you're not just dragging/bouncing a box-sectioned rear end attached to a big fork down the trail. Only thing is Evil want £600 for the frame so I bought a Cotic BFe frame for £370 and put a Float 36 on it set either at 160mm for fast rocky trails or 130mm for jumping, sweet either way.
