Spy shot of this beautiful 3d plastic prototype mould of Empire Cycles Evo MX 6. This first frame will be produced in the next couple of months and compatible as 650b or 26″, plus it will be future proof for upgrades, such as 125 and 142mm rear hub.
Enduro Mountainbike Mag’s UK editor and product tester, Jim Buchanan is especially excited about this bike, as he will be doing a special Brit build on the first one as his personal race bike. On board for the Brit side of this project are, Hope, Middleburn, Goldtec, Rockguards, Invisiframe, Fibrax and hopefully Charge. Non Brit stuff so far is Maxxis and the new Thomson dropper post, gearing and suspension to be arranged, but this is going to be one trick looking bike!
