Since the Evil Following has been released, it has been a fan favorite among all of our customers and staff included. The Evil Following w/X01 build kit comes with some of the best components on the market that are sure to inspire confidence out on the trail. You have likely heard how fun this bike is to ride and that couldn’t be more true. The shorter wheelbase and chainstays allow the Following to be thrown around the trail at ease. We can honestly say this bike is unlike any other 29” bike we have ever ridden.
Evil chose to outfit the Following carbon frame with a RockShox Monarch RT3 rear shock and a 130mm RockShox Pike fork. This combination paired with the Dave Weagle designed DELTA suspension system give this bike a linear ride that handles great on the trail. The DELTA (Dave’s Extra Legitimate Travel Apparatus) was designed for Evil around the RockShox Monarch RT3 as it performed the best after rigorous amounts of testing. Riders will immediately notice the traction while climbing and the ability to absorb rough terrain with this suspension set up.
When you climb in to the cockpit you will notice an internally routed RockShox Reverb 125mm dropper seatpost and Easton Havoc carbon bars paired with an Easton Havoc stem, along with SRAM Guide RSC brakes. The drivetrain is outfitted with our favorite cranks, the RaceFace Next SL carbon cranks powering a 1 x 11 set up with SRAM X01 shifters and rear derailleur. There is the option to run a 2 x 11 set up on this bike but we prefer to stick with the 1 x 11 set up. The Easton Heist 30 29” wheels with WTB Vigilante tires will keep this bike planted and offer a great feel both climbing and descending.
One thing we really like about the Evil Following frame is the adjustable geometry that you can achieve with a simple process. You can do so by flipping a chip in the DELTA system to either the High or Low setting. The low setting will achieve a head angle of 66.8° and a BB height of 13” and chainstays at 17”. In the high setting, head angle will be 67.4° with a 13” BB height and 16.9” chainstays. The Evil Following was spec’d around a 120mm and 130mm fork, but will still work well with a 140mm fork. Other than the RockShox Monarch RT3, the frame will also work with the Fox Float CTD shock but will not work with shocks that feature an external reservoir.
Curious about how the Following rides? We have ample amounts of seat time on this bike and have never had more fun shredding a 29er. You can flick this thing anywhere you want and the bike just goes right where you put it. Some people are weary about the 120mm of rear travel but don’t be deterred by that – we have had a hard time bottoming out the DELTA suspension system. The suspension has a supple feel over the small bumps in the beginning of the stroke and it ramps up as you get near the end of the stroke for a truly linear feel. When descending, the Following feels right at home and is super stable and controllable at high speeds. If you want a bike unlike any other, then you will absolutely enjoy the Evil The Following.
