At 5'6 I'd go small. I'm 5'10 and have ridden 4 evils in medium.I'm about to pull the trigger on the new Wreckoning, but still not sure about the size ... Small or medium, i'm 5'65" and 30 inseam ... presently on a medium Ibis HD4, fell spot on with a 40mm stem ...
Beauty!!! So as someone who has owned ALL the bikes in this category, is there somewhere I’m missing that you’ve posted your thoughts? I’m actually mostly curious how you would compare Sentinel to MegaT, but comparisons of all would be great to hear.
The Wrecker has been my favorite big bike. The geo and suspension work really well for my riding style. The short stays help keep the bike agile and it has fantastic cornering. It pedals really well when needed, very similar to a bike like the enduro but slightly better. Both air and coil work great also. There are a lot of really good bikes out right now but this one works best for me.Beauty!!!

That's what I was expecting when I back ordered my Coral Reefer Wreckoning on Fanatik 2 days ago....then suddenly I get a call today and someone pulled out of their build so my frame shipped today....will have it in hand Thursday.:thumbsup:My local Evil dealer asked about availability dates for size L and was told Dec for coral reefer and Feb/March for black, just fyi
It’s no sofa and still relatively agile with some good pop, but I will admit that it can dumb down mellower trails. I notice that when I ride my Offering and Wreckoning on the same “less steep and technical” trails, I get a bit more of an adrenaline high on the Offering. It feels like I’m going faster with more input from the trail...a bit more on the edge feeling than the Wreckoning. The exaggeration would be like riding a hardtail vs a FS. I still find myself grabbing the Wreckoning for most rides though because I can climb just as fast and has confidence to spare in the chunky stuff. If I had to choose just one bike, for the trails I ride, I’d pick the Wreckoning.Been looking at the Wreckoning a little. Currently riding a Ripmo with -1degree slackset. With a Lyrik Ultimate and a Storia V3 Lok the bike feels really nice.
However I have had the bike for over 2 years now so the new bike abstinence is getting worse
The Wreckoning ticks many boxes. Geo seems very nice, reviews indicate that even though it has 166mm travel it doesn't feel you are pedaling a DH bike.
Size wise both seems pretty similar in L. Evil size charts indicate I should choose M. I am 177cm (almost 5'10) and the Ripmo is an L.
But size aside, how does it perform on more mellow trails? Compared to other bikes of similar and less travel? Does it feel like pedaling a sofa and no fun at all? Pointing the bike downhill I am not the least worried, I am sure it is awesome there.
