The Wreckoning Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 by Evil Bikes
We'd be remiss if we didn't begin any discussion about The Wreckoning Mountain Bike Frame, Evil Bikes' latest twentyniner-stein, with a warning: This bike doesn't give a damn about your lines. Or rather, it doesn't give a damn about whether or not you give a damn about your lines. Other Evil models--The Following, for instance--are built for more artful trail surgery, strategically picking apart rock gardens and root lattices with occasional moments of abandon. Conversely, The Wreckoning is built to wreck trails. Bully them into submission. It just goes, leaving nothing but broken trails and crushed dreams in its shuttle-lap wake. If we were to sum the frame up in one word, it would be "bully," because The Wreckoning is so overbearingly aggressive that, to paraphrase Evil's fearless leader, Kevin Walsh, it's pretty much impossible not to ride it like a jerk. Evil's gravity pedigree is on full display here, and The Wreckoning is most at home when the going gets rowdy. That's not surprising. What is surprising is that the bike manages to combine over six-inches of travel with 29in wheels in a platform that can actually corner. It owes this combination to two things: a long, low, slack geometry and the spacing afforded by a Boost axle. Compared to the riotously popular 29in Following, The Wreckoning is almost two degrees slacker at 66. 1 and 65. 1, depending on what setting you have the linkage's flip chip in. The addition of Boost spacing lets Evil jam the rear wheel up into the seat tubs, so its chainstays are also virtually the same size as the 27. 5in Insurgent. So if you want to adjust lines or, you know, turn, you can. Or you can just ride roughshod over everything in your way with its 160mm of travel. That travel is governed by Dave's Extra Legitimate Travel Apparatus (DELTA), which Evil designed in collaboration with Dave Weagle, who is himself aptly described as extra legitimate. Before going any further, a disclaimer: this isn't a DW-link suspension. Evil ...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
