    Work in progress... feel free to submit other reviews. I know I missed some out there.
    I've always liked the EVO, never seen one in person so it's just a conceptual, aesthetic kind of thing. But it's on the short list of bikes/frames.

    But, EVERY review hits them on the seat angle, (even the AM frame still gets hit on the seat angle), and then due to the seat angle they get hit for the funky sizing issues. (very tall people are actually recommended the smaller frame) Clearly theres room for improvement...

    At this point, and after so many of the same comments over and over, one really has to wonder why Chumba doesn't just turn this frame into a a true or semi interrupted seat tube design and forever end the negative feedback on what is "almost" a perfect design.

    This frame BEGS for an adjustable seatpost anyway! So they could just add a Joplin to the build kits. And with a frame only throw in a telescopic post. DONE, end of negative "performance" reviews. End of funky sizing issues, on to greatness...

    Sure some people will bug on the interrupted seat tube design on principle, but it's gonna be a hell of a lot less than the negative reviews so far on the current seat angle.

    OH YEAH, I did want to say that it seems ridiculous that someone tests this bike with the seat post all the way up and then complains about the seat being so far back. WHEN the pictures they show of the bike never depicts them taking the time to change the angle or positioning of the seat!!! They should at least slide it as far forward as it would go and level the thing out before they review it's pedaling performance! (course this would most likely put the seat too far forward when they dropped it for the gnarly downhill runs and they would probably complain about that, but at least they would be seen as putting a little EFFORT into the review...
