Spotted: Prototype Carbon Evil Uprising All Mountain Frame
The competition in the carbon 6″ trail bike market is heating up. Just earlier this month the Transition Covert was officially announced, and now Evil Bikes is also prototyping a new 6″ bike. The all mountain frame will weigh a claimed 5.7 lbs w/out shock and have two adjustable travel settings. The standard ISCG 05 tabs, tapered headset, and a 142×12 round out the rest of the build.
