The Evasion, often imitated, never duplicated. The Satanic Rando. The DFL. The original Crust. Whatever you have or want to call it, its a bike that can fit a big ol' tire that doesn't ride like something thats been 6 feet under for that past 10 years. In terms of braze-ons the Evasion has everything you'd need to go for a tour around the world and back. 

If you're familiar with the older versions of the Evasion, this one has some changes:

All Frames come with 12x148mm BOOST Dropouts on them and the forks have changed to 12x100 spacing and have eyelets on the top of the crown. 

Build Notes:

Designed around a 26x3" wheel and tire combo and thats its max 26" size.

Word has it 26" is dead (It Ain't. Don't Fear Opulence.) so you will likely go with a 27.5" wheel. The max tire size there is going to be 27.5x2.8".

It can be setup 29", in which case your max tire size is going to be a 29x 2.0".

Takes a MOUNTAIN crank. Ideally 1x with a maximum ~40 tooth chainring. You can set it up 2x, but it's on you to figure that out.

The rocker dropout's adjustability means it is single speed compatible. If you're looking for a dedicated single speed hub the Paul Word Boost hub is a good option.

Front brake is I.S. Mount and takes an adaptor to fit a caliper. The Rear brake is I.S. (Post Mount) as well, but you can bolt a caliper straight to the Rocker Dropout and clear a 160mm rotor. If you're struggling to find a brake setup, the Crust Palm Oil Brake Kit will help solve that problem.

Max Rotor Size: 203mm Front | 180mm Rear

Front and rear thru axles are included.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH AN OLDER EVASION WITH QUICK RELEASE DROPOUTS AND WANT TO GO TO THRU AXLE: 

You will have to measure the thickness of your dropouts here. If your QR dropouts are  13mm thick, the Paragon T/A dropouts will take you to 148mm Boost Spacing. If your QR Dropouts are 10mm thick then the Paragon T/A Dropouts will put you at 142mm spacing.
