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.
Skip past the break for the nitty gritty.
