Review: RAAW Madonna V2 - Ready for the Apocalypse
"Hands down, this is one of the best cornering bikes I've ridden in recent memory. The low bottom bracket deserves the bulk of the credit here, and while that might cause a few extra pedal strikes on the climbs, on the descents that low slung stance makes the Raaw an absolute riot when it comes to cornering or carving down the steeps." -MK I have my 160mm bike (Wreckoning in X-Low with a -1 degree headset 160 fork) at nearly the same numbers including the low BB height (334) and head angle (64.5). Nothing I've ridden corners/handles like it does and while my bike is now three years old, I'd have a hard time going back to something with a higher BB.

Field Trip: Norco's $3,149 Torrent HT S1 - A Ground Hugging Hardtail
I think the most interesting thing in these reviews is that the two heaviest bikes provided each of the testers their fastest climbing times. A light weight bike is swell and all, but having the proper geometry (and personal fit) are infinitely more important.

Field Trip: Sub-$2,000 Trail Bike Round Table
First the new Following roll out and now Evil bikes in the shop clip. This and the plague are surely signs of the end times.

Field Trip: Giant's $1,800 Stance 1 - More Traditional Than Trendy
Higher tier used bike all day with the caveat of having someone you know that knows what they are looking at to assist you in the purchase. There are several SC Hecklers (27.5 actually too; one of the best intro bikes for used, period) on the Buy & Sell here for under $2K.

First Look: Evil's New Following
I personally do not care about Super Boost. I do not intend to buy a Following, but if I was going to and had to swap parts it would not be a deal breaker. Get some adapters, a new chain ring and be done with it. Then eventually build a new wheelset with the correct hub spacing. Just like we all did a few years ago when we went from 142-148.

First Look: Evil's New Following
@JCWB: Come to Georgia and ride with me then you can know first hand. By the way, I ride an Evil and have been for three years. Personally waiting on the new Wreckoning to drop.

Spotted: Evil's New Long Travel Bike
@ATXZJ: Then they came out at the same time as the Following was all the talk of the '14 Bike Bible which dropped in Dec/Jan. Kona's new year line up generally arrives in late summer early fall. The 111 was a '14 model year bike as for '13 the only Process was the older 4-bar 26" bike that only lasted a year.
