Looks like alloy chainstays, which is great.
I can tell from first hand experience, that although carbon frames are wonderful, carbon chainstays are not a great idea on a Mountainbike. Rocks and all that stuff, yes it's solid and more robust than you'd think. But mishaps happen (like in elections for example) and carbon chainstays are ridiculously expensive.

Apart from that, looks like a nice bike.

On Fanatik's website as well.

That would make rolling the dice on one of their frames a little more tempting for some im sure.

The Caling looks pretty darn neat.

With that and the $500 off sale I wonder how far off a Following refresh is?

I imagine they will try to bring all their bikes to the same spec eventually. The Following is PF92 BB and 142mm rear. Insurgent is 73mm threaded BB and 142mm rear.
The Wreckoing and Calling are both 73mm threaded BB and Boost. Im sure they will also try putting water bottle mounts and a slight geometry tweak?

Nah dude, 26" is dead. It's time to move on.

Mountain bikes weren't even supposed to be 26", the Russian military just sucked up all the 650b tires when Specialized and Univega were bringing their mountain bikes to market. Apparently.

It is coming. I've seen Kevin Walsh (Owner of Evil) riding locally on what seems like a Following with a Metric shock with the trunion mount. Just seen it in passing so I can't tell if the front mech mount has gone and the integrated chain guide has been incorporated.

Jon-boy.

Pretty sure you knew I was talking about normal 26" wheel bikes. I don't see those coming back outside of niche applications. Clearly 26+ is still a thing; fat and plus bikes still haven't seemed to have shaken out yet.

I'm not even going to bother to check the numbers, but I bet if you put a 26x2.35" tire on that bike you'd be scraping your pedals all over the place.

Welcome to a day or two ago.

Following ticked many boxes for a lot of people. An update would slay Becky.

Why would you put a 26 x 2.35 tire on a bike desgined for 26+? Of course it will be too low, it is designed for 2.8-3.0" tires in 26+ mode.
