Each year Bike Mag pull together all of the latest trail bikes on the market and put them through their paces to compile their annual test bible. With some of the most knowledgeable and experienced testers in the industry the bible is always one which people look out for but I'm not sure much else will get a look in this year after they feel in love with the Evil Uprising. Check out the review here

The Evil Uprising is the "Chinese Democracy" of the mountain bike world. Like the Guns 'n Roses album that Axl Rose obsessively fiddled with for decades, the Uprising has spent an eternity in the prototype stage. Turns out, it might have been worth the wait

Each rider came back from his time aboard the bike shaking his head-it's amazing. Traction on technical climbs is unreal. Pedaling efficiency and acceleration are cross-country quick. This thing owns technical descents with 6 inches of suspension that smothers hits while feeling poppy and playful.

In the geometry's slack setting, the bottom bracket is 13 inches off the ground and has 66.5- and 71.7-degree head- and seat tube angles, respectively. Much of the carbon frame's 7.2 pounds is centered low. The Uprising has been called a mini downhill bike, and that's an apt description. Do we care that it rolls on 26-inch wheels instead of 27.5?

NO.
