Evil Bikes might be known for quirky launches, like bringing out the Following just as everyone fell in love with 27.5, but they are no mugs when it comes to the direction that the industry is taking. Founder Kevin Walsh went for a hooligan 29er while everyone else thought they were just for XC racing and had spotted the potential for slack geometry when the rest of the industry reckoned it was just for downhill. Which means that most people in the know had their eyes peeled for the first... Read More
