    New ride for this year..2013 knolly podium vs devinci wilson carbon

    Looking for thoughts and opinions on the two...they are both amazing bikes but I'm having a hard time choosing.

    If you have ridden them both and have good feeling on both of them, some things you might want to consider :

    *after market service
    *bearing change - is it very hard to change the bearings?
    *price

    I have not jumped my buddies Wilson, but it sure does pedal good though. He as had the bike for just a short time, but is really liking it so far.

    I own a 2011 which is the newer style Wilson and though I have read reviews saying the Wilson is not great at jumping I have no issues. I rode every jump trail on it at Whistler except for Crab Apple hits and it jumps very well, very stable.

    Here is a vid of me following a guy down Dirt Merchant.

    No experince on the Podium though, sorry.

    Thanks I just learned to jump last summer, I had 4 days in the park 2011 and then about 15 days in the park by the time I made that video this past summer. Was funy, I spent 25 days at Whistler this summer with out any major issues and then I broke both my arms in August on a XC ride lol=/
