    What’s next?

    Any guesses on what’s next for Evil. The Calling seems to be the oldest bike in the lineup. Will they refresh the geo on that bike? Sure would like a steeper seat tube angle like the offering. Any guesses?

    How about a new DH bike? Of course with a modern steep seat tube angle.

    Hopefully it's not an Evil-E.

    Shooting from the hip here, but I believe the "LB" versions of the Insurgent and Wrecker only updated the carbon layup, water bottle mounts, and color options. In terms of updating geometry, if memory serves, the Insurgent would be the most dated, followed by the Wrecker, then the Calling....

    Definitely. I've had an Insurgent and now a Calling. The Insurgent can really use some love in the STA. The Calling on a 140mm fork seems good, but I wouldn't enjoy it on a longer fork.

    Kevin and co. have intimated that the geo changes on the Offering will appear over time on their other bikes. Maybe we'll see a dedicated DH sled with their new team, but they appear to be getting along fine with the existing bikes.

    I would be very surprised if Agassiz would have signed with Evil without a dedicated DH bike coming his way in the short term. My guess is that a DH is "what's next"

    Many bikes on sale at the moment. A sign of a refresh for wreckoning insurgent and calling?

    What really needs "revising" in their current lineup? There really isn't a point to revising just for the sake of it. I don't see the point unless there is something really lacking on the frames themselves.

    I'd bet a Wreckoning refresh is on the way.
