    Evil Uprising - Review - Europe. Plastidipped the Bos Deville.

    Hello,

    Let's introduce myself first. I live in the Netherlands, 28 years old, riding since my 16th. Started with xc, at age 18 changed to bmx freestyle. When I was 21 I started with freeriding on a stinky deeluxe and then a 2008 sx trail. Arround my 24th I started more concentrating on Downhill riding. Intense socom, knolly podium, devinci wilson 2011, devinci wilson 2012 are the bikes I had. The last 2 years sponsord by some good bikeshops, Alpinestars and riding the ixs downhill cup on the wilsons. And I had a cove g-spot for some enduro riding over here. Living in the Netherlands a enduro bike is the best you can have. We goth some great enduro riding in the Ardennes or Germany al in a hour drive, also some enduro competitions there. There it all started for Martin Maes. We have some flowy small bikeparks/jump tracks and with a 8 hour drive we are in the alps.

    Duo some problems I left the team this year, quit riding sponsord, it was time for a change. Riding sponsord is not so cool as it can look like with obligations.

    I wanted back to 1 bike, 1 do-it-all bike, get the fun back. And my first choice was the Evil uprising. Why? I loved the devinci wilson downhill bike, and my do-it-all bike has to be a little bit the same, the same characters. Low center of gravity, Dave Weagles suspension design, I wanted a carbon bike. So, you can do the math the Evil Uprising was on paper the bike to choose. An old sponsor of my distributes Evil so I got one for a very good price. Sold my other bikes and build my dreambuild with parts I liked.

    The build:
    Frame: Evil Uprising, size M/L.
    Fork: Bos Deville, 170 mm, tapared.
    Headset: Standard.
    Stem: Renthal Duo.
    Handlebar: Renthal fatbar 20mm.
    Grips: Ergon GA1 Evo.
    Brakes: Formula the one, 180mm disc.
    Seatpost: KS LEV, 150mm travel.
    Seat: Selle Italia.
    Chainguide: Csixx xc.
    Cranks: Sram x0 carbon, absolute black 32t tandblad.
    Bottem bracket: Sram/truvativ.
    Shifter: Sram x0, 10 speed.
    Derallieur: Sram x0 type 2 short cage.
    Cassette: Sram 10 speed.
    Chain: Sram 10 speed.
    Pedals: Time atac mx6.
    Wheels: Ztr flow ex, hope hubs.
    Tires: Schwalbe hans dampf super gravity.
    Tubes: Tubeless.











    The ride:
    With my length of 1.81m I choosed for the M/L frame what fits perfect. 170mm travel in front, just in case, 1cm extra travel for the dh riding and bikeparks is not to bad, geo is still great. I had the X0 1x10 speed from my ex bike, 32t in front with a narrow wide chainring and I can climb everything arround here, chain stay's beautyfull on the chainring.

    The riding itself:
    In one word, amazing! It is really my do-it-all bike. Xc, enduro, jumps, bikeparks, I do it all and it is so much fun on this bike. Set the shock in low position, just because this ride much better dh. It's not ideal for uphill so with long climbs I set the shock in climb mode to get a better position on the bike. Frame is really stiff and does not flex at all, rockgardens, here I come. With the low center of gravity you can really throw the bike in to corners, drifting, railing, you can control it so good, those hans dampf tires are also great. The bikes rear travel really progress nice to the end, give's you a fealing you have much more travel than 150mm. It's just a small dh bike when you put your seat down. It's a long time ago I had so much fun on a bike!

    What could be better:
    Internal cable routing would be nice, to give it a cleaner look. The rear end could have some more tire clearance. 160mm travel in the rear would also be nice, I know there are just some people who think 150mm is not enough. And it's to bad the frame is not deliverd with the new fox float x ctd shock. Curious if there will come a model with 27.5" wheels...

    Some action:












    And a movie of my trip to Finale Ligure, Italy:

    Best regards,

    Jeroen.

    Nice review, It's a shame the frame costs so much more here than in the U.S. It would actually be cheaper to fly to New York and pick the frame up than to buy it from one of the very few retailers who are selling Evil Bikes here in Euroland.
    And since I have to wait soooo long until I can get this bike I am going to pretend that every reviewer hates this bike. They say it rides like a 1989 V brake rigid hard tail with an extra long seat post with no saddle. LALAla-LA, I am not listening to how awesome this bike is.

    I don't know what the frame in the US cost. But here in Europe it is also not expensive if you compare it to the Nomad, Specialized enduro, Ibis Mojo. I think retail price is arround €2300,- Pretty cheap for a full carbon high end enduro frame.

    Where can I buy it for that price? So far I've only seen a shop in the U.K where it would cost me 3,000 CHF plus shipping, toll, taxes brining it to around 3,500 CHF vs taking a vacation in the U.S and getting the frame for 2,200 CHF plus round trip plane ticket for 600 CHF.

    Swissam & Stylomat you are both right.
    @Swissam, indeed the price to buy from the US is much cheaper, I bought mine from the States while I was there for work and had it shipped to Greece, where I am now relocated for work.
    That saved me quite a lot (€600+). Ιf you have some friend or relative to send it to you by post from the US, it would be ideal.

    @Stylomat, is also correct in saying the price of €2300 for the Uprising frame + shock, is relatively reasonable, in comparison with the SC Nomad C, Yeti SB-66C, Pivot Mach 6, etc. The cheapest of those is the Nomad which can be found with a lot of search for around €2.5k, whereas the other two frames are upwards of the €3k mark.
    So in that sense the Evil Uprising is great value for money, for such a stout carbon AM/Enduro bike.

    Enjoy the bike, it is simply awesome!!!

    PS. Since I am gonna be riding mine this season in Greece (and I am Greek also), should I put my initial review, I've already done, here in the Evil Europe section as well?

    You are killing it! We agree with the "bike can do it all" comment. So much so, we are trying a little experiment with our quiver.

    My first ride on the Uprising was a climb ride and I had it in the LOW setting, I was miserable. I switched it back, but will try again in low when there is less pedaling.

    Great review and pictures.....that's how this bike should be ridden!

    Thanx!
    Ahhh, Delft is flat as hell. I live in the south of the Netherlands. By maastricht, we got some hills over here and with a hour drive we have the Ardennes with some sick enduro riding. Everything in the middle of nord of the netherlands is flat and boring to ride, only xc.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunatly I am in the process of upgrading my career so it won't be until March that I will be earning a decent salary again, then it will take a few months to recover from the expenses of school so I am looking at mid summer when I can justify (I.e wife approval) this expense. Which gives me time to research every component that will suit my needs best and the longevity of the newer stuff like the Pike fork. Still undecided between the Uprising and Mach 6.
    How do you like the Deville on the Uprising?

    The deville is worth the money. But also here I got a good deal on it.
    Air fork, but feels as a coil. Stay's beautyfull high in the travel and progres butter smooth too the end.

    Thanks for the review. I really enjoyed your video from your Finale Ligure trip. I usually don't enjoy POV footage but those trails were worthy both for technicality and scenery and the riding was very fast which kept the interest up. Nice work.

    Stylomat,

    are you running the 170mm fork with the bike in the "low" or "high" bottom bracket position?

    In low bottem bracket position.
    I have never ridden it in high bottem bracket position.

    Maybe it's a idea to try it. But with the bb in high position and de 170mm fork, I think that will be too high? Now in low position it captures a bit on the difference.

    Hey up Stylomat,

    Congrats on you awsome ride!

    Been reading some negative reviews about a cosmetic issue on the Uprising frame: paint cracking on the rear swingarm caused by the difference in flex between the aluminum insert and the carbon. Seems that it's safe to ride however, and I firmly believe that Evil Bikes will respond positivelly to this as a warranty replancement.
    (http://forums.mtbr.com/all-mountain/...l#post10664342)

    You seem to give some propper abuse to the frame, so I was wandering: How's that rear swingarm on your Uprising holdin' up?

    The thing is I'm really hopping to buy an Evil Uprising frame in the next few weeks, the 1st one in Portugal, but I must confess I'm a bit disappointed by that issue.

    Cheers!

    Hey,

    my uprising holds up fine, no problems yet!
    Will keep an eye on it but will there be this problem I now for sure Evil will respond positivelly to this as a warranty replacement.

    Friend of mine has the same problems with his SC nomad carbon.

    Cheers.

    New photo, pretty nice I must say:


    Only on my rear swingarm it also starting with the cracking paint. But allready had contact, Evil is working on a complete carbon swingarm, testing it and then I get a new one.

    That's one hell of a nice bike u got there, mate!

    Shame that issue with the cracking paint on the swingarm. Guess it will happen to all Uprising frames, incliding my future one :/
    Most important is that the brand commits to replace the complete swingarm, and probably with a lighter full carbon one.

    Decided to build mine next month and the specs will be simmilar to yours:
    - M/L Uprising
    - black Deville TRC 160
    - Kirk (still unsure, maybe will stick to the Float CTD - see other Uprising review topic)
    - full XX1 transmission
    - TRS+ wheelset
    - black Formula RO
    - KS LEV
    - Havoc carbon
    ...

    Cheers!

    In the bikepark you mean? Not yet, but dying to test it there!
    On some of the enduro single trails there I have ridden it yet, amazing .

    Yeah I meant the bikepark. All my friends ride full dh rigs there, I was wondering if something more versatile as this bike would be usable there.

    I think a good enduro bike is more then enough there. But I have also only ridden there with my dh bike.

    Couple questions: I noticed you mention in your initial review that you like the Devinci Wilson. No interest in the Troy? Seems to be similar to the Uprising (geometry, though maybe not quite as burly) and has the dw split pivot design which may be more active during braking.

    Also, do rocks ever get caught between the large flat area of the rear triangle near the main pivot and the seat tube? Hard to tell from the pictures but that looks like it might be a tight spot where small rocks flung up from the rear tire could get caught causing gouges in the carbon.

    Hello, the troy is indeed a nice bike. But when I bought the uprising, there was no news of the new devinci troy, didn't know it would come. Also by the looks of it, it looks not really burly, and I wanted a enduro bike where I also could ride some freeride with, or that can took some abuse. I wanted Minimum 150mm travel, troy is 140mm travel. The dw spilt design was nice on the Wilson, but I really don't mis it on the uprising. The uprising is also active during braking.

    The tire clearance is minimal, so sometimes you have some small stones that get stuck in the profile of the tire and then hit the rear triangle and then shoots loose. But the hans dampf tire has a profile where small stones easly get stuck in. Never had rocks get stuck on the flat area near the main pivot.

    At the start of this build I wanted a black Bos Deville, they weren't available yet, I wanted to ride, so orderd a white one. Well I still wanted a black one, haha.

    What to do? Sand it and then paint it, then I lost my warrenty. Sell my white Bos and then buy a black one, that's over the top. Then I heard of plasti dip. Search a lot about it on the internet, youtube etc. and then started myself. Plasti dip is kind of rubber, you have to spray it on with minimium 4 coats, I have 7. No sanding before, just clean your fork. If youre not happy with it, fork needs to go to bos for warrenty, or want to sell it original you can peal the plasti dip like a sticker of the fork. They use it a lot in the automotive, whole cars, rims etc.

    The plasti dip:

    Now waiting on some custom decals for the fork and also for the frame, I only don't know if I gonna use the frame decals:

    On the fork decals, the dark grey BOS will be matt black. Rest of the sticker glossy black and red.

    I am interested in the Uprising and have a couple questions.
    Did you actually fit a Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 in the back of that frame or do they make a narrow version SG for the euro market?

    Kind or confused on the "cracking paint" issue. Pics I've seen of this frame appear to raw carbon? Were early production frames painted?

    Hello,

    I have a 2.35 hans dampf tire in the rear, it fits. In veryvery muddy conditions there can stack some mud on the rear end, you wont notice it while riding. For me it's no problem.

    I still don't have the cracking paint and I did some big jumps on it. I can feel some stress where the paint will final crack, but it's all warrenty and I assume that dissolves well Evi

    Hi Stylomat.
    Can I ask did you have any issues fitting the Csixx chain guide ? as I've tried a couple of MRP ones now and none seem to work, not even the xc top mount only style one which is like your Csixx.

    Hello,

    the csixx fits perfect, no issues at all.
    The bike has gone true some changes and I do not use the csixx guide any more. Riding with a absolute black narrow wide chainring that keeps the chain perfect on the chainring.

    Also did some other small changes. Riding now with Shimano xtr trail brakes, the Bos is back white again with some custom decals and a Renthal fatbar carbon and apex stem is on the way.

    Last photo is when I go riding a bikepark. Then I change my ks lev seatpost and slr seat for something cheaper.

    And last but not least, a movie:

    MRP AMg works just fine with a couple of spacers to adjust for correct chainline.





    PS. Freshly washed bike! Not very often...

    Bike is looking sweet dude.
    We are running very similar set up other I'm on X01 11spd with a Saint crank with narrow wide, I'm on Pike dual position in white and run a reverb dropper. rest on my kit is Raceface six stem and 800mm raceface six carbon bars, Hope tech3 e4 brakes and floating discs.
    I've managed to drop my chain a few times now even with the narrow wide that's why I fancy just a top guide.

    Hi TP806.

    I couldn't get that chain guide to work on mine as it either hit the rear triangle on compression or when spaced throw the chainline to far out, but Im running X01 11spd so my chain angles are probably greater then a 10spd set up !
    Nice wheels, Ive gone for the black/carbon and blue look on mine :-)
