Evil The Following Large

$800 USD
2015 Evil The Following Frame. Rear Shock: Rockshox Monarch RT3 (serviced approximately 25-30 riding hours ago, frame not ridden since June 2016). Wheels Manufacturing Press Fit BB92 Bottom Bracket with Enduro Bearings, good shape, no creaks. Evil +/- 1* angleset cups installed, bearings included but in need of replacement. Unused factory FSA/Evil standard headset included. All Mountain Style and Evil Factory frame protection on downtube, toptube, chain and seat stays. Almost new derailleur hanger, rear axle in excellent condition. Little backstory on the frame. Purchased in mid-summer of 2015 and used as my primary rig in Trestle Bike Park as a patroller, yes, this frame has some serious vertical and miles on it. About two months into ownership, I noticed two small cracks on the rear swingarm, both pictured in the provided photos. Although I wasn't sure when I had damaged the frame, Evil was forthcoming in offering a discounted rear triangle for somewhere around $500. Being a poor bike bum, I decided to ride the frame until it exploded before taking their offer. I got a pretty slick deal with Canfield a full year later in July of 2016, all the while having been riding the cracked Evil, eventually developing so much trust in it that I sold my 2015 Voltage 710 cause the Evil was too damned fun. The bike is a total shredder, I built it slack with burly parts long cables and the front brake routed through the headtube for mega-speed, barspins, flips and the long haul enduro rides everyone raves about, it truly is that versatile. Right now, the Canfield Riot, an very similar bike is my main rig, and I just don't ride the Evil enough to justify keeping it. The bike has performed admirably for me, but should no doubt have its rear swingarm replaced eventually, hence the low price/any offer situation (I'mm willing to help source a rear triangle if help is needed). The frame as a whole is by no means perfect, so expect some small paint smudges from my coworkers bikes, and the odd chip or rub mark from the rear tire. I've ridden the bike hard, but always kept it in good running order and made an effort to apply extra frame protection where needed. The frame and shock will be thoroughly cleaned for shipment. Would make an awesome ride-able winter project. If you've read this far, thanks and shoot me an offer, 29ers rule. $800, or best offer. Happy Trails

Don't Look Down: Riding on the Edge of a Massive Dam - Video
@Kaspy: I think that's missing the point. I'm sure they love doing those videos, but to some extent, the totally out of your mind stunts they pull from time to time must be self-fulfilling. It may make more comfortable viewing for the public to see them doing playful and imaginative parts like Wee Day Out, but we mustn't discourage the death defying aspect that keeps them invested in their craft either.

Don't Look Down: Riding on the Edge of a Massive Dam - Video
If you don't understand why someone would push themselves to their absolute limit, you probably shouldn't be involved with this sport. Fabio is calculated, just as Danny Mac, Semenuk, Zink, or Gwin are. They all know damn well that the level they are riding at could spell disaster at any moment, and to the same degree, we understand the same of ourselves in our own pursuits. I'm glad riders like Fabio do what they do, if everyone played it safe, we'd still be riding beach cruisers.

Help a Fellow Rider Following Serious Injury
*edit, realizing you meant to say "going to do if something like this happened," not questioning what why we are riding bikes.

Just a heads up for everybody looking for a 29er Dorado, I've spoken with Manitou earlier this year regarding purchasing one, and was told its pretty much out of production, and there was zero backstock.
