    Just looks to me like it’d fold in the middle!

    No doubt it isn’t but it has a very “fragile” look to it.

    I assume the Boxxer has been shortened in some fashion?

    At least that would be graceful. I’m more worried about the headtube tearing off.

    People are really playing with the Evo, if you go to MTBR there are lots of people going with 170mm forks. Wonder what Specialized has to say about it

    Just looks like somebody’s chucked some dh forks on a trail bike!

    Mine is now 160 front and back after changing to a 210×57 DHX2 and swapping the fork shaft. Still has plenty of clearance on the back end even in low mode, you could go for 170mm+ rear travel in high mode.

    I couldn’t really tell from the pic is that Carbon or Aluminium?

    Either way it’s not my cup of tea it looks a little form over function but I’m sure it’s well enough put together…

    Is itintended as a sort of “Mini DH” bike? A bit like a few companies sold before Enduro was really a ‘thing’ rather than a full fat replacement for a Demo?

    Was there any indication on price when you saw it?
    It sort of looks like it could make a nice summer Bikepark/alps toy for a couple of years and then you’ll simply flip on because it’s only really being used for 2 months a year, plus you’ve gone and spawned and need some money for the deposit on an MPV, but then you don’t really want to [ay over the odds for that do you…

    I saw it on my local bike shop’s facebook page. I really dont know anything more about it other than it’s aluminium and they are gonna ride it!

    Is that definitely an Evo , it doesn’t look slack enough to me even taking into account the fact that the back wheel is on a stand .

    I don’t know anything about the bike in the picture but dual crown forks are going to creep onto Enduro bikes. That’s my prediction for 2020 anyway.

    is a stumpy a trail bike really?

    Judging by the build, super high bars, DJ saddle, tiny cassette, I assume it’s a sponsored riders bike for a freeride event.

    That looks awful, the Evo looks lovely with a single crown fork empathising the slack head tube angle.

    They did it before with the old stumpjumper evo expert which had 180mm boxxers on a coil sprung stumpy. Was very popular in bike parks

    You know some bikes just look “right”?

    Well this isn’t one of them.
