After reading every single review out there, this past January I pulled the trigger and bought an Evil The Calling. There were things that I did not like about their GX build, so I decided to build my own version of it with the parts I like. I had to relocate from Socal to NYC this last May, and it seems like I will not be able to do much riding this season. The bike has less than 200 miles of use overall. Build: - 2018 XL Evil Calling frame (angry dolphin color) - Fox 36 Performance (Grip damper). The originally had 160mm of travel. It was reduced to 140mm using a shorter air shaft. Original 160mm one included, in case you want moah travel - SRAM Gx Eagle complete drivetrain (34T chainring currently mounted, but I will throw in a brand new unused Eagle 32T chainring) - Hope Tech 35W rims (Hope Pro 4 hubs). 35mm internal width, great for high volume tires. Upon cleaning them today I noticed a really tiny dent on one of the walls (see picture), but it does not affect performance at all. As I said I didn't even know it was there - Maxxis Minion DHF (2.5 EXO 3C WT) front and DHR2 (2.4 EXO WT) rear - E13 TRS 150mm Dropper. Mechanically actuated for extra reliability. It has a tiny bit of side to side play but E13 said it's normal. - Renthal Apex (31.8mm) 50mm Stem paired to Specialized 780mm bars (28mm rise). Yeah I know I will go to hell for running a Spesh bar on an Evil bike, but I just love the rise and backsweep of that bar. - SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 200mm SRAM centerline rotors (F&R). I will include a 180mm rotor with the sale and a brand new unopened SRAM Pro bleeding kit. - RaceFace Grippler grips (30mm thick) to go matchy matchy with the frame. Additional set of RF grippler grips included in the sale (20mm thick) I discovered a bit of cable rub after my initial few rides, so I heli taped and added velcro on the critical areas to prevent any more rub. Unfortunately one of the logo stickers was slightly damaged and there are minor marks from the cable in those areas (see pictures) Well this is basically it. The description and pictures should answer the majority of potential questions but if there is something else you would like to know, drop me a line. As usual the pedals are not included and, and I would only accept Cash or Paypal (buyer covers Paypal fees). I am willing to ship it within the continental US. If I get my asking price I will split the cost of shipping with you. Cheers and thanks for looking!

I pulled this dropper from my '17 Enduro (bought on August 2017). Absolutely no issues with it, works as well as new. I am a tall guy so switched to a different model with a longer drop. Buyer pays Paypal fees. Willing to ship for free within the continental US.

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
Blaming gun related deaths solely on "mental health issues" is an oversimplification that does very little to help the stigma around mental health. When we say that those who kill have mental health issues, do we say that after the fact?; does having generalized anxiety (like your grandma), a psychiatric diagnosis, make you a dangerous gun owner?. According to the World Health Report, "One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives". Perhaps we should stop using easy answers for complex issues, and start genuinely looking at other risk factors such us socioeconomic and educational variables...

Commencal 100% Riders Rip in California - Video
Yeah me and my 150 xc buddies that just started riding yesterday are going to soon and just skid all over. I really don't understand this entitled surfer like attitude towards a trail.. Yeah trail builders there worked and continue to work their ass to build and maintain that line, but in sure as hell they also ride outside their zip codes, where other dedicated riders work hard as well to maintain their local lines... Can't we all get along??

SRAM X-SYNC 28t Direct mount & RaceFace Aeffect 28t Cinch Chainrings $20 EACH, they came with my bikes. Used them for a few months but swapped them for bigger ones. Nothing wrong with them.
