Just thought you guys might like to see this. It looks like Evolve Bikes out of Canada just released a new bike. It does come with a Cane Creek shock and a lifetime warranty though.

Yep, those Cane Creek shocks really are expensive!

It’s like buying a counterfeit bike but in reverse. Is that even possible?? ???

They are being a little deceptive with the head angle, 66.1 is the spec on the general drawing and it's 66.9 on a more detailed drawing of a medium frame and that is all with 571mm ATC fork, not a 160mm. That's kinda far off from 65, more like 68... Cane creek 40 headset, I thought the P9 was like the P8 and could not use press in offset headset? Am I missing something? I did not miss that the axle to crown dimension is strangely missing from the site  ::)
 
Here is the detailed drawing I mentioned earlier.

Rideczech, fill me in on this if you would please!!  Can I use this on my P8?  Is it an offset bearing for the headset?  If so this is news to me.

Nah....It's just a deeper crown race to lift the front of the bike a little as the Sweep HLR's are a little short axle to crown.....

and where did you find one in the 18mm variety?  I would love to get an 18mm or 20mm crown race for my P8.  Slacken it out another degree or so!

I searched and searched for such a thing and wasn't able to find it!

It certainly opens up the fork selection for the P9 quite a bit! Too cool, wonder why they aren't more popular like shock offset bushings.

Guys,

Does this frame use a normal crankset(chainline 49mm), or a boost version(chainline 52mm)?

Thanks

The BB width is 73mm, I used a 3mm sram eagle boost offset chainring and standard 68/73mm GXP BSA BB with no spacers. I think that means you'd want the 52mm chainline, if I'm not mistaken.

When ordering from Ican how much did you guys pay?
Would a 200x57 shock work on the P9? Does anyone know how much travel a 200x57 gives on a P8?
