Back in July I had the chance to spend a few days riding at Big Sky Resort in Montana. I learned to ride mountain bikes here and spent many winters as well skiing the resort. When the opportunity came around to film here on my Evil Following, I couldn't pass it up. The trail network in Big Sky is expanding quickly, it's really amazing what they've done in a few short years.
About my ride: My Evil Following has been my go to trail bike, this bike has proven capable to handle nearly any discipline. With a more slack overall geometry, and the ability to adjust its geometry, you can set it up for hours of pedaling or switch it into an evil gravity fed trail slaying beast.
This bike is so fun to ride and I find myself even exceeding my need for speed at times, but I have to admit, I quite like it. The Evil Following also pedals very efficiently and the bigger wheels combined with the Delta System suspension design feel very smooth and supple over small bumps and helps smooth out the trail in front of me. I would say this bike is made for all day outings or lift access and can handle the burly trails as well if that's the what you're craving. Oh yeah, and did I mention it comes with a water bottle holder?
I never thought I would enjoy riding a 29er because I was intimidated by the bigger wheels. The Following has hands down exceeded all of my expectations and I am thoroughly impressed with its performance. I love my ride! I've come a long way over the years as a rider and I'd like to give a big thanks to all of my sponsors: Deity, Fox, Shimano, Royal Racing, Profile Racing, Continental Tires, Spank, IXS, FiveTen, Evil Bikes and Alleycat Bike Shop.Words and Rider: Britney White
