A sordid past of questionable mountain biking endeavors have influenced a semi-transient move westward to the land of milk and honey.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
I'd like to hear whether the "metal cups on their press-fit bottom brackets" are wearing away the inside of the press-fit cups on carbon frames.

EBAY LISTING: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Evil-The-Following-XL-Frameset-/112120702230? EVIL THE FOLLOWING The fun, versatile, yet aggressive big wheel bike with progressive geometry that's at home slashing trails, riding jump lines and crushing descents. Includes: 130mm Rock Shox Pike fork with Stealth decals 120mm Rock Shox Monarch RT3 Debonair shock Evil Top Cap Evil Front Derailleur Mount Cover FSA Headset I'm selling my slightly used XL frameset. If you're shopping for an Evil, you've heard the accolades and read the reviews. The attention this bike has gotten is well deserved and it might go down in history as one of the most influential mountain bikes of all time. This XL trail slasher was ridden for only half a season. The OE specked Rock Shox Monarch RT3 Debonair and 130mm Rock Shox Pike with three Bottomless Tokens come with purchase. The Following can truly be a terrific trail bike, but unfortunately, this one has sat in my garage most of the season. So, it's time to let it go. There are some slight scratches from early season mud and some cable rub. Other than that the bike looks damn fine. Stealth decal pack used on the Pike for that murdered look. The DELTA suspension is no joke. Dave Weagle knows how to craft suspension. You'll soon realize this bike feels bigger than 130/120mm. Murder all but the gnarliest bike park tracks with this aggressive gunmetal trail crusher. Sale does not include: Stem (used to hold fork on for photos) Dropper Post (used to hold frame in stand) I have a few more photos. Message me if there's anything else you'd like a better look at. I also have the original 150mm airspring for the Pike. If you're interested in that, let me know. I didn't use it because the HTA is already pretty slack at 130mm travel. Local pickup an option. Thanks much!

Large 2011 Pivot Phoenix DH Frame. Fox DHX RC4 Kashima rear shock, Cane Creek Angleset and Pivot Phoenix decal pack (orange and green). Plus a set of longer drop-outs (+0.5"). BUY IT NOW Or BID ON EBAY! http://www.ebay.com/itm/110872851293?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I got the frame at the end of June last summer, 2011. It has about half a season of riding on it and only 2 races. There is cosmetic damage on the top of the drive chainstay from some chainslap. It was one ride's worth before I noticed and covered the area. No significant crashes and only small blemishes and scuff marks otherwise. One small nick, probably from a rock, on the downtube. From pivotcycles.com: The Phoenix DH is the ultimate expression of what dw-link® suspension can do for a rider. With the heritage of 6 World Championships built into it and plenty of podiums on its own, the Phoenix DH is the DH bike to have, whether you’re a top ranked World Cup racer or a weekend gravity pilot. The Phoenix has already proven to be the king of frame stiffness and durability in World Cup competition, while also having a distinct advantage in suspension control and pedaling efficiency throughout the travel. No other downhill bike offers the performance of a dw-link® equipped Pivot. When DH runs are decided by fractions of a second, the performance and confidence inspiring ride of the Phoenix DH is the tool you need to make it to the top step of the podium. • 8.15” (207mm) of travel. • Raced to a Podium finish in the US Downhill National Championships and 8th in the Red Bull Rampage by Kyle Strait as well as several top 20 World Cup finishes in its first season of competition. • Adjustable head angle with 0, and +/- ½, 1, or 1.375 degree settings via the CaneCreek Angleset. • Changeable dropouts allow easy adjustment of wheelbase to suit course conditions and rider preferences. • Shock and main linkage are mounted as low as possible in the frame, giving the Phoenix DH excellent cornering and handling characteristics and access to all damping adjustments on the Fox RC4 Kashima shock. • Two-part hollow BB/seat tube/main pivot forging is both lightweight and incredibly stiff. • Complete bikes weigh in at sub 38lbs. (17kg). Race team bikes as low as 36 lbs! • Standard 83mm threaded shell with ISCG mounts. • 150mm rear spacing with12mm through axle. • Ultra-Durable powder coat finish with blue, green and orange decal sets included.
