The reach is pretty good for the calling. Longer than evils other bikes. I'm 6' and ride a large following. I do feel it's pretty compact. I wish it had the reach of the calling. I did ride my buddies XL following and I liked the reach but the seat tube was too tall for my 32" inseam. I could not get the seat low enough.

That's a bit of a drive from San Diego. The first DH trail looked fun too and it looked like it was San Diego more or less.

Looks like that test track Curtiss Keene was dialing in his suspension on in Trinidad Colorado? Funny stuff

According to the chart it says the reach is 480 for the large and the XL. Is that correct?

Excellent review. I bought the following based on vitals review last year. The Calling seems like a plusher version of the following. The following is a very capable bike. I ride everything from bike park to smooth, sharp berms,flowing trails. I definitely ride it beyond its capability which is why I'm looking for a rig with more travel for those rowdy DH trails. The following really shines on smoother trails that are fast with lots of burms and jumps. Even when the trail gets rough the following still holds a line, you just won't be as fast and it takes a little more toll on the rider.

Where is the follow up segment to this that was supposed to posted this week? I've been checking everyday for it. I'm very interested in the new enduro 29 as I had the last enduro 29 for three years.

Hey vital, you doing a review of the 2017 E29? I'm super curious how it compares to the old one.

Is he running the aluminum or carbon traverse wheels? If he is running the aluminum they must be a lot stronger then they used to be.

Ah man its been too long since I have taken my toboggan down the bobsled. That was one of the first "DH" trails I did as a beginner mountain biker. Is that trail still fun?

Brandon,

How does this bike compare to Evil The Following? I'm very interested in both bikes.
Thanks!

KTG290, I just went to Santa Cruz for the first time and I love your local trails around UCSC. I have been thinking of doing this on my Enduro 29er as I live in a Yucca Valley, Ca where the trails are very sandy. Actually there are no MTB trails, I just ... more ยป

Thanks for the early Christmas present with this review! Im either buying this wfo9 or the enduro 29er. Both bikes are very similar in GEO and have the same intended purpose. Jeff, how would you compare both of these bikes suspension design? I look forward to your response.

I think you have me sold on this shock. Im about to pull the trigger on an Enduro 29er and I have the option of putting this shock on that frame. Will the New Pike fork match well with this shock you think?

I appreciate the info about your Mojo HD's leverage ratio and how it correlates with the vivid air. Great review. I assume you're running the Pike up front. So this wasn't on par with the rear shock huh? My next bike will have the Pike and Im definitely a DH oriented rider.

I have been on the fence about this bike, but after seeing your build I think I may have made my decision. NICE!
