    Goblin Evolutions are running........

    ..........down the assembly line! Nothing but a sea of Mexico Blue as far as you can see! What a beautiful sight. If you've pre-ordered one from us one of these could be yours.

    Not I. But if I didn't already have a Goblin, this bike would be topping my list right now.

    if someone is at the higher end of the fit range for a 20" frame would it make sense to get a 22" EVO since the stem is shorter or would you want the 20" frame for more maneuverability on trails?

    I always default to the smaller size if caught in the middle. But my inseam is fairly short for my height.

    If you have normal proportions and are within the 20" range, go with it. The greater maneuverability is helpful, especially in a 29er.

    Thanks MikeinMinn yeah I think you are right, probably better to go with the smaller frame since all of my riding will be on trails instead of road or smooth paths

    I always get the smallest frame I can fit...I am one of those cats who can ride a med or large on 26ers...I have found on the 29ers that there is no way I would like a large the med frame fits perfect...seems the 29ers run more true to their size I would go for the 20..

    As far as the EVO this bike is on my top five list of next bike...I will then leave the Goblin fully rigid and use it strictly for fast xc stuff and EVO for the more technical stuff

    Love my seeker, but wish I could return it for this bike, as it is perfect for what I need.

    Wish these were out 5 months ago.

    It just takes time to develop product and ensure its "right" before we unleash it on the public. We wanted to get a full season of ride time and testing and actually went thru 2 versions to get it the way we wanted it before it was finalized.

    Glad you guys like the spec and looks of it. Can't wait to hear feedback once people start taking posession and riding them. We've pre-sold a healthy amount of them so I'm happy about that. Now I just worry we aren't producing enough!

    Is this frame ultra stiff or will there be a little compliance

    If its anything like the Goblin/Seeker frame, it will be very comfortable.

    The frame IMHO is stiffer than a stock Goblin/Seeker frame due to the larger tubes, squared-off seat-tube, shorter rear end, and pressfit BB shell. However, the larger 2.4 tires negates this I feel. I think the comfort level is close. Hope that makes sense!

    I'm riding a 1996 rock hopper right now that's just crazy stiff. Really looking to get away from that feel so that's why I ask

    Those 2.4 tires are going to give you a killer comfortable ride...especially on the technical stuff..

    This bike is beautiful. If I had room and / or the motivation to sell my current steed, I would pick this up in a heartbeat.

    My friend is in the market for a new bike, so either I am going to sell him my seeker and buy one of the evolutions or he might just pick one up himself.

    Anyways, the bike looks amazing and the specs also look great on paper. Love to hear reviews once people have it dialed in.

    I see the BB height is listed at 12.5". Does anyone know the height on the regular goblin so I have a comparison?

    I went from a 98 Trek 7000zx (which is really one of the early "modern geo" frames) to the Seeker and the difference was amazing. Modern geo's and tube design really take the harsh out of a stiff frame, even aluminum. Even if this is stiffer than the Seeker/Goblin frame, I can tell you it will still be worlds better than any vintage aluminum frame.

    I always ride the larger frame I can fit. FIT being the key word here. I just feel cramped and uncomfortable on a frame too small.

    Me too!!! But I'm hoping to get the Airborne trail/all mountain bike whenever it comes out to have the perfect two bike stable.
