Monster truck wheels with a sports car feel. XL green Evil Following for sale. This 29” wheeled bike is truly amazing. It’s happiest on the tight forest trails where each root, rock or terrain change is an excuse to hop, jump and pump but it also does surprisingly well on steeper, rockier terrain found in the Alps. It has a relatively short amount of travel (120mm in back, 130mm in front) which makes it a blast on the trails but it rides steep gnarly terrain much better than you would expect thanks to it’s slack fork angle and low bottom bracket height. I ride the bike in the ‘low’ setting but you can also switch it to ‘high’, which steepens up the fork tube angle, making it even more lively on the trails. This bike was proclaimed "Mountain Bike Of The Decade" by Forbes magazine in August of 2018. Upgrades: 1) DT Swiss 481 30mm inner - width rims (tubeless), strong but light aluminum rims. 2) RWC Needle bearing on shock mount – reduces friction compared to stock mount, which improves small-bump sensitivity resulting in a smoother ride and better grip in the corners. 3) Vorsprung Luftkappe – Installed in suspension fork, increases negative chamber volume, which increases small-bump sensitivity on the fork, resulting in a smoother ride and better grip in the corners. 4) One-up EDC tool – small multi-tool that fits in the fork steerer tube. Things to be aware of: There are some heavy scratches on the frame and fork but they are purely cosmetic. The bottom bracket and the rear tire should be replaced soon. Sizing I am 193 cm and the bike is fine. Newer bikes are getting longer, so smaller riders that want a long, low, slack bike might consider this one as well (you might have to fit a shorter dropper post though). Components: DT Swiss 481 rims (30mm inner width) front and back mounted to original Race Face hubs SRAM X1 11 speed shifter and derailleur (10-42 cassette) Race Face Affect crank (170mm crank arms, 32 chain ring) Rockshox Pike 130mm fork with Luftkappe SRAM Guide R brakes (203mm rotors, front and back) Race Face Affect stem (50mm) and bars (780mm) Rocksox Reverb 170mm dropper bost. Maxxis DHR2 2.4 WT tires front and rear. OneUp EDC toolkit mounted in Steerer tube of fork. Crank Brothers: Flat pedals Spare parts included in the sale: 1) Bottom bracket. 2) Evil ‘emergency kit’ (contains a derailleur hanger and sever suspension bolts) 3) Spare chain and Power Lock quick link Links https://www.forbes.com/sites/robreed/2018/08/13/mountain-bike-of-the-decade-the-following-by-evil-bikes/ https://www.enduroforkseals.com/products/rear-suspension/shock-eyelet-bearing-kits/6mm-8mm-thru-bolts/ https://vorsprungsuspension.com/products/vorsprung-luftkappe-upgrade-air-piston-kit-for-rockshox-pike-lyrik https://www.oneupcomponents.com/products/edc-tool-system

Troy Lee Releases Adidas Collab Race Kit
Sorry, but the Adidas logo just doesn’t work for mountain biking. Much to linear and uniform.

This. I was riding 6 weeks after breaking my shoulder blade and they thought I was insane. Well they were partially correct. I was going crazy from not riding in the middle of summer!

We had great weather this year. The race organization was really good and the volunteers were awesome - especially Marcel, whose highly motivational starting technique will be tough to beat next year. The trails were great as well, although they seemed to avoid some of the extremely technical sections from last year.
