Which in turn meant screwing over every uprising/undead owner who'd decided to go with a small company. If your new manufacturer is killing it wouldn't doing a run of swingarms for the aforementioned bikes be super simple for them?! #undeadfiasco

Hi Dude, unfortunately manufacturing doesn't work like that. If a dispute has arisen the old manufacturer could still have the moulds. Or even own the moulds. Also a small run would be at a truly eye watering cost.

What faceplanting said. Many variables were taken into account when abandoning our old manufacturer. It was no easy decision, but it is a very key variable in why EVIL still exists. If we hadn't gone that way, there wouldn't even be a company left to vent your frustrations to.

So, would a swingarm from one of the new bikes fit the front triangle of the undead. I want to run 27.5 but I can't fault the bikes handling (made it better thanks to ohlins) so I can race in Europe. Nothing to lose as there's no warranty.

Still annoyed by the whole process. Not as if I paid with stones for the frame.

Why not just run 26 rear and 27.5 front? Look at how I run my Santa Cruz v10. Pics in profile. The 27.5 front makes a world of a difference. It plows up and over everything, and just lets the rear end follow. I'm going into my third season with this set up with no issues what so ever. The bike has been to whistler, 3 times to highland, twice to Bromont and many many days spent at my local mountain.

Friend of mine does this and he's said similar. Sounds like something to try. Not quite ready to give up on my undead so this may help. Cheers buddy

I'm pretty set on getting an Evil as my next bike but can't decide between the Calling and Insurgent, I ride mainly trail centre stuff and occasionally do the odd uplift day (once or twice a year). Would the Calling be able to handle the bigger hits or would the Insurgent be a better choice?
Cheers
Demo both if u can is the ez answer or demo a 130 rear bike and 150/160 rear on ur trails.
Ul know if u prefer quicker bike or slighlty slower handling but plusher bike.
The calling is nice in that it checks off all the latest stuff...boost, metric, threaded, 2 wheel sizes, steeper seat angle.
Cheers, hoping I can find somewhere in the UK where I can demo one

The riders guild have a demo calling and bike active were planning on one as well .
But both of those shops are down south.
If your after a medium insurgent then I would call blazing bikes.
They have an unbeatable deal on the X01 special edition build dripping in top end components.
They are an awesome bike shop with some serious bike porn

Does anyone know if there's anywhere in the interior of BC to demo an Evil Wreckoning? I'm very interested in one but it's pretty tough to drop that kind of dough without swinging a leg over one first...

I would try Sussed Out Suspension as well as I think they have some evil demo bikes. I am thinking of selling my Large Insurgent frame (or whole bike) in case you are interested.....not to leave the Evil family (I also have a following) but to go to potentially move to a Wreckoning.

Having a hard time deciding between an Intense Primer and Evil the Following

Anyone ridden both bikes?

Primers aren't as progressive as the following.
The primer will out climb the following but the evil is better dh even tho it has less travel.
Primers have strange build spec such as 125 droppers and 760 bars(even on Xl..?)
There will be an updated following out sooner than later from what my ears have heard.
Probably boost, threaded bb, updated pivots to match other evils.

Thanks for the reply.

Both bikes I am looking at are used bikes if that carries any weight.

If I'm not mistaken, you can use any shock. You'll just need different hardware to mount it

Ok, looking to switch to a coil over shock on my Insurgent. I weigh 180lbs. What spring rates are you coil dudes running on this bike and how do you like it?
