Details

Have you ever wanted a bike that wasn’t like a bike at all? More like your favourite snowboard, or your funnest surfboard, the one that catches all the waves or trashes [pillow] lines faster than Kate Moss in the '90s. The Calling is your answer. This bike-shaped-skateboard has enough travel to keep you honest, while encouraging you to irresponsibly hit every extra-credit line on the trail.

At this juncture most bike companies would drive in some high-scoring-scrabble words like optimized, nimble or anti-squat technology. But we won’t insult you with that nonsense. The Calling has all the bits and bobs you have come to expect from Evil, and water bottle mounts.

The Calling is the Following's delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that pedaled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.

The Calling is the trails, it’s the road trips, it’s the little side hits on the way, it’s the all-day pedal-fests, the backyard pallet sessions, the pre-work rip, the “I’ll get it this time”, the stories told later in the bar with your best mates, it’s 130mm travel, it’s Super Deluxe, it’s 27.5 or 26+, it’s boost and it’s as stiff as Ron Jeremy.

The Calling is the Following's delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that pedaled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.

ROCKSHOX SUPER DELUXE DEBONAIR:

Prior to performing shock adjustments, determine riding weight ( fully geared up ). Push the shock O-ring against the wiper seal and push the sag adjuster on the non drive side of the Delta Link forward. Lean up against a sturdy wall, friend, or telephone pole and sit on the bike. Being careful not to tip over, dismount the bike and check the SAG indicator. The SAG indicator should barely cover the 30% mark and the O-ring should measure between 15-17mm from the shock body for ideal setup. The Insurgent uses a high volume air canister which compliments the progressive spring curve of the Delta System Suspension, if a less progressive feel is desired then experiment with different air volume spacers. We also found that the Insurgent performs great in the "Descend" position for most riding conditions, however, for sufferfest climbs and high speed trail riding the "Pedal" position also works well.

NOTE:

These are just guidelines to start you on your suspension tuning journey. Its very important to tune your front and rear suspension together to get the best set up possible. When purchasing a full bike build from Progression Cycle your initial suspension settings will be tuned for you before we send you on your way.

NOTE:

The dual progressive leverage rate curve might make some spring rates seem stiff, we encourage you to try different rates that will allow you to sit deeper into the suspension travel and find that perfect set up.

HOW DO I ADJUST MY FLIP CHIPS?

Remove upper and lower linkage bolts then remove 3 flip chip bolts. Lightly wiggle flip chips free and flip 180 degrees with desired position facing up. The flip chip position will be visible when sitting on the bike and should read High/Low or Low/XLow depending on model.

HOW DO I ADJUST MY HEAD TUBE GEOMETRY?

If equipped with optional Angleset. Using a headset removal tool remove lower cup. Rotate 180 degrees. The lower headtube cup is labeled +1 or -1. Place desired position to the front of the bike. Reinstall with headset tool.

WHAT SIZE IS THE SEAT POST?

The Calling uses a 30.9 Stealth seat post and a 34.9 seat clamp.

WHAT IS THE WARRANTY ON THE CALLING?

3 Year limited warranty

WHAT TYPE OF HEADSET DOES THE CALLING USE?

The Calling uses an FSA Integrated Tapered No.57/68 headset, alternatively bearings from other suppliers can be used. Upper Bearing 30.2x41x6.5 36°/45° Lower Bearing 40×51.8×8 36°/45°

WHY DOES THE CHAIN RIDE SO CLOSE TO THE CHAIN STAY?

Due to progressive kinematics, tight clearances and the need for super stiff chain stays we increased the chain stay heights which gives about 2-3mm of chain clearance just like a motocross bike.. Braaap
