Chris’ Evil Following V3

I chose the Evil Following V3 to complement my Evil Offering V2 as a lighter more pedal friendly rig for longer days in the saddle. After building the Following it has quickly become my go to ride for everything, but the bike park. It has amazing pedalling abilities and it is snappy in and out of corners! It is very nimble and easy to put it where I need it to be on the trail, making the Following extremely fast and capable.

I chose the TR32‘s for this wheelset because of the compliance they offer for longer days on the bike. I was shocked how good these wheels are coming in and out of corners, it’s like you’re on rails and always spits you out the corner at twice the speed you came in! I went with the tried and true Chris King hubs for this build for the legendary angry bee sounds as well as the longevity and reliability of King bearings!
