    Considering an Evil Calling

    Have not been able to demo a calling just yet, was wondering if anybody from asheville could share some info on how the calling handles the climbs around pisgah,dupont and bent creek.

    Definitely demo one. I ride with someone who loves his (aggressive rider and we do a lot of long, nasty, typical Pisgah climbs). However, I rented one in Sedona and found that although it climbed and pedaled great, I found it to be a bit front heavy. Found myself having to pull up on drops/jumps where with my bike (Heckler) I just shift my weight back and it flies level. Hope this helps!

    The Hub is a dealer but not sure if they have any for "demo". Are you dead set on an Evil? I'm just a wrench but...their warranty is an absolute joke (3 years limited?!) and the flex coming from the rear triangle left me pretty underwhelmed. Just my 2 cents.

    thanks for the feedback, not set on it just looking at the calling for a shortish travel do it all bike. I may even just run a hardtail this winter and see whats out next year. (no hurry) That warranty is not ideal, also props to the hub, I have a bike from them.

    A heavy front end is a side effect of the new long/low/slack geometry. It effects most new bikes, not just the Evil.
