2020 Evil The Following Carbon 29" Mountain Bike
Win up. Win down. Follow no one.
This was the bike that made people realize 29ers don’t suck. The bike that inhales trails, hunts for mischief, rewards deviously rowdy behavior. It took naysayers and made slaysayers. It slashed and burned a category only thought fit for naptime. It redefined short-is-big, support-is-necessary, progression-is-key, pop-is-king. The Following started an entire genre of bikes.
And while the Following is as far from everybody else’s bike as it could be—it’s currently bucking the nebulous-reach trend while scrubbing the long gap at the same time—it’s still the bike that wastes nothing in any challenge. Uphill, then egregiously descending through every opportunity while decimating every pump and undulation the trail has to give—and then some. Slash-XC, shred-country, hard both ways, TAll Mountain—call it what you want, the Following will follow no bike.
Which is why the Evil Following will always be the King of Pop.
- SENDER NEUTRAL: Excels with both reduced Excels with both reduced & traditional offset fork
- SOUND MOUNDS: Rubber sound-cancelling chainstay mounds keep you bounding in peace.
- SILENCE OF THE LINKAGE: Dual-row, angular-contact, Klüberplex-filled bearings + oversized pivot hardware = lifetime.
- 157MM SUPERBOOST+: Wider spacing makes for faster, stiffer handling.
- DIRECT-INJECTION CHAINGUIDE: As light as it gets—and removable for those who want even lighter.
- PEDAL-FORWARD POSITIONING: 77-degree seat tube angle puts you over the pedals, powerfully cranking uphill.
- MIRACLE-GRO MAIN PIVOT: Wider pivot, oversized hardware, and a systematic wholehearted linkage approach = flex-free durability.
- FULLY INTERNAL: Tubes within tubes. Set-up bliss, tidy looks.
