Yea I looked at the Evo but I didn't think it would fit me because I still like to go all around the mountain when i go to colorado and didn't know how it would hold up on those bigger mountain trails.
Cool! Yeah, bingo on that one. Proto may just be the ticket.
I ride my smaller local hill Seymour in Vancouver but like to head to some of the bigger mountains too. The Evo suffices, but I get the feeling I'm gonna want something to handle the chop soonish...
