    Hoping to get on an Evil Following demo new version later this month then get one as they come back in stock.
    If you're looking for something closer to a Ripmo, I think you want the Offering.
    Offering reviewers are using the same words as the Ripmo and it's actually available now.

    Yeah. Iím kind of on the fence between Ripley and RipMo. Really very very similar bikes. You really donít lose much going to the RipMo. Pedals very similar and only about 1lb difference.

    Not sure how that plays out following vs offering. And the new following is brand new. Guess a new offering is in the works.

    I think they did the Offering update first.
    Just like the Ripmo/Ripley, the Offering/Following seems to be, "Why not" The Ripmo gives all the acceleration of the Ripley with more DH chops. Seems to be the same with the Offering/Following.
    Both bikes seem to make their smaller brothers sort of, "Why bother?"

    Good to know. I can probably demo both evils.
