The Calling Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 by Evil Bikes
If Evil Bikes' The Wreckoning prides itself as a versatile all-mountain monster that's happiest running big lines and revels gleefully in days filled with lift laps and bomber descents, then 2017's The Calling Mountain Bike frame is best described as its sassy, irreverent, trail-leaning little brother. Scampering off on its snappy 27. 5-inch hoops towards whatever terrain currently suits its fancy, The Calling is ready to seek out adventure with a cheeky aggression that'll have you cackling joyously out of every berm and opportunity for air. With 131mm of travel (compared to The Wreckoning's massive 161mm) and ever so slightly steeper angles, the Calling is perhaps better equipped to manage varied terrain and get you to the top of climbs without the spiral of self-defeated pouting sometimes associated with slacked-out, big travel rigs.

When dropped to the X-Low setting, the bottom bracket drops to 13in off the ground, and the head tube slacks out to as low as 65. 8 degrees. The Calling is definitely down for a party, and its long, low countenance is finished with 16. 9in chainstays (17. 0 in the X-Low setting) that dice techy lines like a cat on carpet. Where most full suspension machines have hearts, The Calling instead has a dark void in the shape of Dave's Extra Legitimate Travel Apparatus, which Evil abbreviates with the acronym DELTA. To be clear, this isn't a DW-link suspension. Evil stuck to a linkage driven single pivot with a specific aim to achieve a level of adjustability not allowed by DW-link's four-bar design. DELTA was originally designed as a platf...
