2017 Evil The Following V1 XL ***FRAME ONLY*** in Toxic Sludge color. Most people know about this bike, but if you don't please feel free to ask about sizing/fit/ride characteristics/etc. Believe the hype, this bike really does live up to its reputation.

Size/fit: I am 6'2" with a neutral ape index (equal height to wingspan) and a 36" cycling inseam; the bike fit very well and I would not have wanted a L. This is personal preference, but this bike does truly ride agile - even as an XL.

Frame is protected in the critical areas with 3M helicopter tape (see the last two pictures as illustration of how valuable this is). Bottom bracket and frame bearings were replaced last year but I have not touched the headset; all will be inspected as the bike is disassembled this week.

I am the second owner, no crashes or functional damage of any sort. I have taken pictures of all the major paint chips - if I have one complaint about this bike it's that the paint is very weak. The lower side of the drive-side chainstay is especially bad, as the previous owner had no protection here. First thing I did when I received the bike, before the first ride, was to carefully sand down the chipped area, seal with clear coat, and cover with several layers of 3M helicopter tape. As evidence this stuff works, please see the last two pictures - the first is of a scuff on the top tube (looks ugly but didn't make it through the tape), the second is the frame underneath once the tape is removed.

Thanks for your interest.
