    Evil The Following or Canfield Riot and Nimble 9???

    I recently had an Evil Following and sized up when I bought it, the bike felt a tad too big so I sold it. The Evil absolutely ripped and the suspension was superb. Now that Canfield released the numbers on the Riot I am up for a serious decision. With the price of the Evil I can basically get a Nimble 9 and a Riot. What would you do and why? If the Riot was available in carbon it wouldn't even be a question. I have never ridden a Canfield full suspension so I don't know how they feel.

    The Evil carbon frame is 500 more than a Riot. A nimble 9 would need a build to go along with the frame.
    I'd get the right size Following and wait for the Riot info to come out at the end of the summer.
    This is April. It ships in August as of now.

    I have parts for a Nimble 9 build. I will be waiting until about June for a Following in the right size.

    What did you end up with and what do you have now?
