Stock Components & Frame Settings Out of The Box:
- Shock: 2010 FOX DHX RC4
- Stock Spring Rates:
Sm=250#
Med/Lg=300#
XL=350#
- Flip Chips slack, headtube steep // 13.8", 64°



Frame Warranty:
2 Years from the date of purchase.

Features:
DELTA Suspension

Off Set Shock

Production Geometry and Available Sizes:

*NOTE: These are the actual production figures for the bikes that are coming off the line.




Shock Options:(as of 11/20/09)
FOX DHX 5.0
FOX RC4
Elka Stage 5
Cane Creek Double Barrel
Rock Shox Vivid 5.1 & 4.1

Spring Rates AND Shock Tuning:

FOX RC4:



Stock Spring Rates for DHX 5.0 & RC4:
For spring rates, the frames come delivered with:

w/ DHX5.0(First production run of 50 frames)
Sm=300#
Med=350#
Lg=400#

w/ RC4
Sm=250#
Med/Lg=300#
XL=350#

Fox has recommended running 50# lower spring rates on the RC4 than you would run on the DHX5.0.

FWIW, I am running 400# spring and am approx 200lbs. I am pretty much on money with the sag. Maybe would need a 425# spring but a 450# would be too much.

ROCKSHOX VIVID 5.1:
The Rockshox Vivid 5.1 comes in 3 available tuning configurations from their factory. The "A Tune", "B Tune", and "C Tune". dw, designer of the Revolt's suspension says:
The “A Tune" is what I recommend...

CCDB:
We have previously passed the leverage and wheel rate info to CC USA for their shock tuning. - ska Todd
…talk directly with Josh Coaplen. He knows what's up, I passed him the curves a while back and he and I have discussed them in person too. I haven't tested a bike with the data acquisition and the CCDB yet, but I'm confident that it can be made to work.

ELKA STAGE 5:

Great compression adjustment, that actually works (what i liked about the Vivid). On the Elka it is nice to have both high and low speed compression adjustment though (compared to a DHX 5.0). If you know what you are doing and know how you want your bike to behave it comes in really handy for fine tuning.

All shocks have their pros/cons.... favorite part of this one is that it is super sensitive on the smallest of hits but does not use up too much of its travel and the progressive rebound is spot on. The cons would be that it could take a while to get set up correctly but Pat at Elka knows his stuff and they have a ton of guys testing and giving feedback so he is able to take the guess work out of the fine tuning.

I have no sponsorship obligation with them and could run whatever I want... I have a Fox (DHX 5.0), and a Vivid(5.1) for the Revolt both of which I have ridden extensively, and I had the Vivid 5.1 feeling super nice... but the Elka is staying put as it simply performs better for me.

My shock was built around the Revolt's leverage ratio, and I am not sure how far from that base line things were changed for my weight and compression prefs.

...what I was trying to say is that Elka has all the data they need from the folks at Evil to build you a shock & they have done some testing on the Revolt so it is possible to buy one aftermarket.

Frame:
2009 (First Year Production)

Material: Aluminum (details forthcoming)

Colors:

White (powder coat)



Black (bead blast anodize which give a matte/satin finish)






Frame Decals:
"Voice & Choice"
EVIL Revolts will ship with 7 complete decal kits:
Black
Gold
Silver
Green
Blue
Red
Lavender

*Notes:
The first production run of 50 frames were powder coat white with gold ano head tube sleeves and shipped with FOX DHX 5.0 shocks. In addition, another batch of 10 or so frames were also shipped with the now standard black ano head tube sleeve, but some were equipped with the 2010 DHX RC4 (or simply the "RC4") and some were equipped with the DHX 5.0. Both batches of frames (gold ano head tube sleeves and black ano head tube sleeves) did not have a continuously straight TT(no brace). :



Production frames succeeding the first 60 had black ano head tube sleeves and came equipped with the 2010 FOX DHX RC4 (or simply the “RC4”). However these frames featured a continously straight TT (i.e. - they had the seat tube brace):



In 2009 a VERY limited number of frames came in "Gun Metal Grey" ano.

Adjustable Geo:
“I don't really have any interest in running a 14.25"bb or a 65 degree head angle so I'm probably not going to flip the chips just for the sake of it. But I know a lot of people who will really appreciate the option of not having to run a 13.7"bb all the time (How often have we heard that the Sunday is "too low" and it sits right at 14"?).

In reality, yes - the adjustments do exactly what they say. Dave and I both turned the headtube sleeve to the slackest position & the bike went from 64 to 63 degrees. As far as flipping the chips over in the swingarm it's a pretty straightforward and simple design. It looks like flipping them basically extends the swingarm to make the bb higher and repositions the shock to keep the leverage ratio constant. In the lowest position you can run a 63 or 64 degree head angle, and in the taller position you can run a 64 or 65. Should accomodate a lot of different riders' preferences.”

Yep, and to think that a couple people have already asked me if they can run the (custom aftermarket) slacker HT cups that have been shown around on the board here. Mine is currently set with the slack FlipChips and the steep headangle. My HTA sits right about 64° with a BB of just under 14". I personally couldn't ask for a better geom set. I'm already riding the bike over my head and have had to say "you need to slow down so you can work tomorrow".

To keep it simple, based on past experience and through testing with a few "mules" over the years, I didn't really feel that the benefits were great enough to justify the added cost, weight, and complexity. Instead, I was REALLY careful about where I put that main pivot. In my opinion, the benefits of optimizing for acceleration performance far outweigh the benefits of optimizing for braking performance, so I concentrated my efforts there first, with a mindful eye on what impact my choices had on braking.

There are a lot of amazing factories that can machine and weld in North America, but it's tough to beat TW for sourcing complex formed tubes and forgings. As a result, the factories there have a lot of experience working with complex shapes / manufacturing techniques.”

Cool, I got quoted.

One day this will become the behemoth that the Sunday thread is and it will be a very useful resource. I don't think I have anything to add now except that I'm 5'8" and 190lbs and I'm riding a medium with a 42mm stem and a 375# ti spring. I'd like to try a stiffer spring but I don't want to pay for one now. :)

Nice work. :thumb:

LoL... YES waiting for years of trial and error FIRST would have been the way a REAL man would have done it... however... we all learn from our mistakes. :D Putting together the "Sunday Thread" when I did was out of frustration and as it turned out, needed in the riding community. I too, wish I had done it sooner but I hadn't "communed" with a Sunday until the summer of 06'.

wow, you had some free time i see

also what do you mean continuously straight TT?
my first white one did not have the brace too. i also thought i had the first batch, but it didnt have the gold sleeve..guess i didnt
LoL - indeed!

The EVIL "Countdown" thread was only meant to help make the public more aware of delivery dates but then... well... it devolved into frequent pissing matches and other shenanigans. :disgust1: It detracts from the discussion and is counter-productive to informing riders. What I liked about the "Sunday Thread" was that people could reign it in and stay on topic with tech and tuning questions (at least while I was working on it). By maintaining a professional atmosphere more people reap benefits from the thread and come away from it with a positive experience.

Todd originally told me that the first batch of 50 had the gold ano head tube sleeves but apparently I made the incorrect assumption that these were also the only ones without the "brace". I double checked and the number of frames without the brace is more than 50 but less than 60. "Continuously Straight TT" was just my frame of reference when describing the Revolt in that area. "Brace" or "No Brace" also works. :)

Nice!

The Ohlins/CCDB is a great shock - Herndon and a lot of other pros did a TON of testing with them. The final product is pretty impressive. So far so good with the Dorado. After a full season of racing, a buddy of mine who rides for GIANT says he loves his.

Any idea what's different about the Obtanium RC4 spring? I have an Obtanium spring on my RC4 already and it seems to do what springs do with no rubbing. I assume it's just the stroke issue that will be addressed?

From what I understood from talking with both Ska Todd back in July and more recently Jim at Obtanium, there wasn't a large supply of RC4-specific Ti springs in 2009 since the RC4 was a new product release (2010). The main concern was to ensure that the I.D. (Inner Diameter) was the proper size so that under compression the spring wouldn't rub against the shock body. In addition, the O.D. (Outer Diameter) must have enough clearance to fit between the reservoir and the shock body. To do this requires making a specific winding thickness (diameter) of Ti coil wire.

istratetm - the info you seek is posted in a Geo Chart on the front page along with just about everything else you could possibly think of. LoL. :D Just scroll down a bit to find it!

EDIT: The wheel base of a Large is between 1175mm and 1187mm depending on what Flip Chip and head tube angles you are using. The difference between these two wheel base measurements for a Large and the two wheel base measurements for a Medium is about 26mm(1175-1149) and 20mm(1187-1167) respectively.

Hmmm interesting. Which Demo 8 do you currently ride? The first generation ones (2005-2006) or the newer ones (2007 - present)? If you came off a Medium Demo 8, then typically you would feel comfortable on a Medium Revolt. I am about 180cm tall and have tested both the Large and the Medium Revolt coming off both a Medium Sunday and a Medium first generation Demo 8. Based on my riding style - I decided on a Medium Revolt - but that's just my personal preference.

If you feel like you don't have enough bike in front of you then definitely go with the Large.

Hope this helps!

i was reading the first page and your answer really helped. i was asking because i was reading a geometry chart somewhere else that stated other measurements(shorter wheelbases). It was Evil site i guess.
Regarding my current bike is a 2009 Demo 8 with 1205 mm wheelbase. Keep in mind that the rear is 421 mm, so there is plenty of space in front.
So i guess the Large will be just fine for me.
The suspension on Revolts is amazing. On my Demo i had to tweek and tune my shock and re-shim it to feel right and it was quite linear.
The Revolt covers that area. Hope the numbers suit me!
Thanks!

Does DW pay y'all so that threads featuring his bikes get stickied? Just noticed a pattern and was curious.
LoL - actually the real reason is far less interesting.

I don't get paid by anyone for any of this. The same held true when I was doing the Tech and Tuning thread for Iron Horse. The reason the EVIL thread was made sticky is because EVIL is extremely busy and has been since it debuted as a new company about a year ago. Due to this, and since it's hard to find a lot of info about the Revolt all in one place - I thought I would do another Tech and Tuning thread to help out EVIL and riders alike. The mods who handle things here saw that the info I put up filled a need so - here we are! :)

istratetm - glad I could help! The geo table on EVIL's website actually reflects measurements from the prototypes and not the actual production bikes. This will be changed in the coming months.

I have an Obtanium spring that I bought from Jim at the last PA Fluidride race and it actually doesn't rub and the stock Fox spring was rubbing pretty badly on the shock body. The only think I'm concerned about is the shock stroke/spring stroke. The stock Fox spring is stamped as a 3.25 and the Obtanium spring is stamped as a 3.00 stroke which is the same as the shock IIRC.

I would feel more comfortable with a 3.25" spring but all the Evil bikes around here are running the same spring that I have and seem to be having luck with it.

fox stamps their springs with the travel it takes to coil bind the spring... everyone else prints the shock stroke the spring is designed for.

the 2.25, 2.75, and 3.25 fox springs are the same as everyone else's 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 springs

Jason - exactly what wisco and Dave said!

In other words the 3.0" Obtainium spring will work just as well as the 3.25" FOX spring. Additionally, because Ti springs typically have fewer windings they have slightly more room before coil bind.

If you use the spacer provided by Obtainium with your Ti spring you should be good to go!

Try dropping him a line - he may be able to help.

Hi istratem,
I'm 6.0 (183cm) and I ride a Large and it's perfect. Before I rode a medium Iron horse sunday and the down tube was longer than on my large evil mesure at 600mm
Wheel base on mine is : 1195mm with low bottom bracket and slack angle on the front. My fork is 583mm (marzzo wc evo) from axle to crown. With this setup the reach is about 405mm and the stack is nearly 600mm . I hope it'll help you to compare with your demo

I'm 6'1" and wasn't sure if I should go for a size L or XL. So I figured the best thing to do was to go directly to the source, meaning Gabe:

"I would suggest at 6'1" to go for a large bike. I don't suggest moving into an XL bike until you are 6'3" or so."

Yup - exactly.

I'll post up a sizing chart in a few days on the main page to give everyone a better idea of what size frame would be the best fit for them.

still waiting on my bushings/bearings.................two weeks now
Rice - when I last spoke with Gabe on the 3rd, he said they were shipped so I'd give it 7 to 10 days for delievery. If your parts don't show up by the 13th then I'll check with Gabe.

If Kevin sent you new I-links I would use them. I also got some new bearings and bushings from Kevin but haven't taken the time to tear my bike down to replace the bearings yet.
well its not like i specifically asked for it. i originally just needed bushing/bearings, but even CRC sells the rebuild kit with new I-links..the stock ones seem fine.

they are in there because they are just part of the rebuild "kit" so to speak... Replace what is worn, keep everything else for spares. or at least keep the old ones around as spares.
