Wally Phillipswrote a review of Evil Bikes The Following MB Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 on June 30, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Everyone is looking for that one bikes to do MOST of what they want to do. I tend to see two schools of thought here: 1. what can make me descend like nothing affects me while I can maybe get this bike uphill in a serviceable way and 2. what can I do to turn a rig that is pretty fast uphill to almost have no limits on the down?
The Following MB looks towards the second party with 120mm of travel within its DELTA linkage and a bit more reach than the original version of the Following. What results is what could be one of the most easily approachable trail bikes on the market with just enough stability to confidently take on most conditions with ease.
One of the only tricks to it is you need to be confident yourself and push this bike to its limit to get the most out of it. The other is that the rear tire clearance isn't much as the knobbiest of compounds won't have you going higher than 2.35.
The latter is really the only down point I have found within the MB version let alone the 1st version of the Following. This frame/bike is truly one of the closest single quiver offerings out there and most folks who are looking to have a great full speed bike on the up and the down won't be disappointed.
