Is it just a marketing scheme?
Agreed. Usually, when a big company tries to do this, it comes of gimmicky. That doesn't seem to be the case here.Mr.P said:I see EVO as catering to what bike nuts do to their bikes to tune them to their nitch style of riding (re; the members of these boards )
I and many others have added coils to Enduro for AM/FR duties and/or added longer forks.
And others have crazy weight tuned XC bikes for racing.
EVO seems to be taking a segment and pushing it's extreme.
Could have done that, but then they would just be heavier and not actually stronger.iguanabartola said:The Enduro EVO is so nice but I reckon the stays should be beefed up just a bit. Trek Scratch type of stays and that would indeed become the real "one bike"
and it's not a trade mark - european car manufacturers were using "evo" long before the mitsi lancer came along e.g. mercedes cosworth evo I & II, peugeot 205 t16 evo I & II, etc.etc...Speci-AL said:The car is actually called Evolution not EVO.
