Got a decent ride in at Santos on Sunday, before the rain started. Wasn't much of an adjustment, at least up there. Feels like a pretty fast bike, no issues going through the twisty stuff on Bunny. Some of the really tight stuff like on Rattlesnake or John Brown felt a little different, but no biggie. Overall I really liked it, but I think if I could only have one bike it would be my Epiphany. The 9'er just doesn't leave the ground the same, it's more of a XC bike where the Epi is more all-mountain. But I think the Evolve might be a faster bike doing XC type stuff.
