In its own words, Evil Bikes describes The Following Mountain Bike Frame as, simply, FUN. While we typically favor subtlety in our own writing, we're happy to forgive Evil this moment of enthusiastic Caps Lock excess because the bike actually delivers. The Following Manages to turn FUN into a four letter expletive, as in This bike is FUNking awesome. In terms of ride quality, FUN translates to a bike whose huge wheels and alarmingly capable five inches of travel defy all of our expectations which leads us to the three letter word we might use to describe it: all, as in This is an all day trail rocket and an all mountain sled. And it's not just us. Chances are good that if you're a literate mountain biker who keeps up with product news, you're aware of The Following's growing body of glowing reviews. Evil is known for not taking itself too seriously, but the rest of the industry isn't afraid to bathe it in the accolades it deserves. Evil's sexy approach to geometry customization is one of the key aspects underwriting The Following's all ness. The frame's linkage includes flip chips that alter the bottom bracket height and head tube angle. When dropped to the Low setting, the bottom bracket sits a scant 12. 83in off the ground, and the head tube slacks out to as low as 66. 8 degrees. We're used to seeing such lewd dimensions on six inch, 27. 5 enduro monstrosities needless to say, they make prim and proper 29er trail bikes blush. The Following definitely likes to party, and its long, low countenance is finished with 17in chainstays 16. 8in in the High setting that dice techy lines with the horror flick alacrity of a hockey masked mama's boy set loose on a drunkenly lascivious spring break camping trip. Compared to the gravity designs from whence it sprang, The Following's shock sits further up in the main triangle. This makes for a simplified construction process that hinges on dual row angular contact bearings and a 15mm thru axle. We know the ass...
