    Have you asked Stu at defcon? He generally seems pretty unbiased.

    What are you missing from the HD3 that you feel the Evil will offer? I'm interested to know - the HD3 is still rated as one of the "best"... so changing bikes may actually make very little difference!

    A mate of mine just got decline on a warranty claim on his Wreckoning. Depsite the frame being imaculate with no other marks on it they claimed the cracked carbon was due to crash damage and refused to fix his new frame with only 300km on it. I would research the warranty and service offered by Evil to confirm it matches what you are looking for when you buy a top end frame.

    The main thing drawing me to the calling is the extra 20mm reach.
    Always feel a bit cramped on the hd3 with a 60mm stem and large frame.
    Don't want to go longer on the stem and I'm only 5'11 so shouldn't have to be on an XL.
    But yeah big effort to change over for bit of extra reach.

    Don't get hung up on frame sizes. It doesn't mean anything.
    Some bikes have larger medium sizes than other brands' large sizes. The important thing is that it fits YOU.

    Ibis have added a whole lot of reach on the HD4, which might be a solution. Seven year warranty as well.

    Yeah that does look the goods! Finally got reach aligned with other manufactures.
    I read the Pinkbike review and kinda though the writer may have preferred the old hd3?
