they're hard to compare but ill do my best - with the evil, because of how good the push shock is - there feels like more traction and its just stuck to the ground all the time. I can pop it no problem but the bike wants to stick to the ground and rip corners. My lifeline was set up completely different, The evil is a pretty neutral setup and I'm sticking to the 25-30% sag but on my antidote i found i liked it a lot better when i ran it with like 15-20% sag on the rear and no sag in the front. I got about the same amount of initial grip as when i ran it softer and the bike rode amazing. I came to it off an intense m9 and the m9 was a great plow bike. Antidote could do that just as well if you wanted to but was also much more lively so you could plow into something, decide the line on the left looked better and just hop over to it. I set it up stiff so it would skip over things rather than sink into the holes and once you got up to speed it just got better and better the faster you went. Another benefit of the stiff setup was that at any speed you could truly manhandle the bike to where you wanted it without much effort because it was 34 pounds. Both bikes feel pretty similar in rear end chassis stiffness which is something I'm pretty sensitive about and they both take corners amazing. The chief difference i notice is that the evil mutes the ground feedback a little more and the sizing is a little smaller but they both get pretty incredible traction and really like it when you don't go slow haha. Since the weight on both bikes is super low in the middle of the bike they're both incredibly easy to flick around into turns and really stable. Oh i guess one thing that feels unique to the antidote is the bb pivot - thats one difference i definitely notice but its not good or bad. Since you're basically standing on the point that the bike is pivoting around, in a parking lot the bike feels kinda "hinge-y" so you can load the suspension really easily - i always kinda thought thats why i liked it really stiff because if i wanted to really push, i always had a bit more leverage on the bike. Both rip though, I'm definitely curious about the carbonjack
