Evil Following in South Africa, soon to be at Colorado EWS 2

Bad ass! I love when people ask "what bike is that", the reaction when you say "its an Evil" is priceless.
Bad ass! I love when people ask "what bike is that", the reaction when you say "its an Evil" is priceless. In all her glory. Pics DO NOT do this bike justice! Lots of room on the T1 calliper to allow pads / rotors to cool. For me there is no other bar / stem combo. Running a higher rise bar on the Evil due to the short travel fork and short headtube. I actually wish I could get another 10mm higher... Another view of I9 jewellery for good measure. RaceFace are back in the game with their Cinch cranks. Not only are these easy to install and setup, but bearing life is about the best there is right now. Dave Weagle DEFINITELY EXTRA LEGIT SUSPENSION APPARATUS. I have never experienced a 120mm bike that can handle like this. I'm finding new limits every ride. Having a larger piston than the R1, the T1 calliper helps cool these suckers down when I'm dragging the brakes. Awesome details on the Evil frame, I've had a number of bikes over the years, but the attention to detail on the Evil is second to none. XTR M9000 doing the duties out back. There are some times I with I had a wider spread though... 2 x may be coming soon. I9 certainly have done things right with the new Torch hubs: reduced drag, simple maintenance and improved bearing life. Installing new KS lever was a pain in the ass! RTFM is my advice for sure! Evil Following in South Africa, soon to be at Colorado EWS Goodies heading out the door to pay the bills. I've played around with the travel on the fork quite a bit, having the ability to adjust in 5mm increments on the Formula 35 definitely is a huge advantage, not to mention the supple, super controlled action it offers. Onza Ibex 29 x 2.25" tyres are super versatile, and for me an "all year" tread pattern which means one less thing to have to worry about getting used to. Shimano XTR M9000 cassette with Formula 180mm rotors and T1 Calliper. I9 Enduro wheels, Formula 180mm rotors, T1 Calliper. I've switched out to the lever style KS remote, this is a HUGE improvement as it offers almost infinite adjustment to get into the perfect position. I like to keep a clean cockpit, this electrical tape is now replaced with heatshrink.
