seeing as they are a small company, this is a great way to become larger. All of a sudden, you can literally buy their bike anywhere??? That's a good idea! The prices are pretty good also. I don't think they'll stay like this forever, but it's a good way to sell out their runs every year. Having owned a bikeshop, I loved having people come in and just order a bike when I didn't stock it. Best of both worlds. They keep coming back and I never had to front the cash

I've owned too many bikes over the years and have set up tons of peoples bikes while working at shops, so now literally everything is amazingly picky to me. I ride the same brands and have them set up almost all the same. BUT once they're set up, they're ... more »

That's an incredible price for the acreage. There was a resort selling in idaho for about the same price but you had to lease the land from the govt

Red Bull just needs to put up the cash for a team like in F1. I think they'd do very well

Geez, I'm not so sure me and my 10 years of riding and $6k bike could handle that course!! Some of them were sending it on terrible bikes. Props for sure!

I'm so glad to see this is out there. I probably won't buy one or can use it to it's full potential, but it's amazing to see the process. Good job Push!

I know for me and so many others, we've just bought a new bike every year or two and put a new 1k into them. I don't have money for 8k bikes but a 5k bike is alright(plus it helps when you buy from the same shop for the past almost decade and they hook it up a bit)

Added a product review for 2014 Evil Uprising 9/23/2014 8:21 AM

One of the best on the market


The Good: Amazing Pedaling, Very comfortable cockpit, Descending is just amazing. You become one with the bike immediately

The Bad: Needs more room for the back wheel.


This is the best all-mountain bike I've ever owned. I also own a Transition Bandit 27.5 with the exact same build(1x11, pike, dropper) and I usually end up taking the uprising even though it has more travel and is supposed to be less of a climber. I have not found that to be true. Especially with the Fox Climb mode, it climbs like a goat. The bike comes alive when you get to the top and switch it to descend. I have my sag set at 33% and it feels very linear up until the end of the travel when it becomes very progressive. The bike is so comfortable. This bike is so agile and the suspension system works perfect. I just wish there was more room in the rear triangle for mud and rocks. That should be remedied. I haven't had any other problems besides that.

I've never been a huge kona fan...but the Carbon Operator with Boxxer RC, Kage RC, Zee Cranks, X9 Der, Code R, Minion Hubs, and slightly worse wheels is $3999. I'll spend my money on that kona any day!!!
