    The Action Pics Thread ...Post 'Em Up!

    None of those namby pamby shiny bike in your kitchen shots. I want to see down and dirty and big and hairy (XC shots with epic views are encouraged). The bike porn equivalent of scheisse vids.

    You already saw this one...



    Then there' s Barb...





    Over a hundred days and counting on my Delerium T this summer. It's quite a bike.....

    While I wholeheartedly endorse the idea of this thread and look forward to the pics it will bring, I am sure it will do nothing but further the amount of drool flowing from my mouth over Noel's frames. Oh yeah, it may end up hurting my wallet too.

    I almost lost some fingers last summer playing this game with Harley. She is very - um - indiscriminate about where she bites the stick!

    When you look down that first pitch it doesn't look nearly that smooth, as with any picture it's all about the angle. Love that line, Dales rock face and that line make that route worth the ride.

    I remember Barb warning me at a trail day early last season just as I was about to pick up the stick to play fetch with Harley. Best move is to push Harley back with a foot just as you reach in to snatch the stick, or just pick a new stick each throw.

    It seems like the season has flashed by in a second and I have nothing but my memories as testament to my best year of riding ever. After being out the country for two years, I got back in April, desperate to make up for all the riding time I had lost out on and in desperate need of a bike. I was introduced to Noel and my V-Tach and the season is a blur of speed and adrenalin.

    I had to email a friend to get this photo off him...but wait...it looks like this weekend is going to be awesome and I am definitely taking my camera!

    While working on the local trails, some "random" Knolly rider blazed through an unfinished stunt.



    I had to change the line when I saw how far he was clearing the tranny.

    LOL - that's defintiely starting to be an issue.

    However, white V-tachs in large are pretty rare and I think I still know MOST of the people who own them. The 66 RC2X and the white helmet, combined with Caskey's "Fast as possible racer style position" on the bike were give aways (not to mention the lack of elbow pads!). Though I did have to think for 30 seconds or so to figure out who it was!

    Ya, trying to find the time to come visit. I told Laurence that there is wine close by and we're trying to figure out how to combine the two How far away is Quail's Gate from you?

    Quails Gate? About 6 minutes if you time the lights right.

    Also Boucherie and Mission Hill are right here..

    There's roughly 80 or 90 wineries within 90 minutes of here now.

    Some trails end at wineries (Hillside in Penticton, the Golden Mile in Oliver, and Orofinon in Cawston).

    Good old Sullivan Canyon. I grew up riding that trail. Last time I road it, it was still a ton of fun. I am temporarily (three years) out of country, but look forward to riding at home soon.
    How are you liking the Endorphin for the Santa Monicas?
    What bike did you have before?

    It's awesome! Had a break-thru ride on Saturday at Backbone: Corral - Kanan.

    My main ride was a Titus MotoLite. I still have it, but I changed it up from all mtn. to more of a marathon class racer. The Titus feels more responsive at the pedals, but the Knolly is significantly more plush and stout feeling. Everything just looks smaller on the Endorphin.

    I was surprised to see you get anything posted up after the trip, I'd imagine you've got to be a little swamped with work. Hope the order goes smoothly and looking forward to your pics and those from the rest of the clan down there.

    Yes!!! Come on Noel, the pics look great but Jim's desperate for his D-T and I'm struggling to keep Mel's a secret any longer. I had to buy her an engagement ring at Christmas to cover up the lack of a frame shaped present.

    BTW, very happy with the V-Tach, I love it more each time I ride it.

    The order is leaving on Wednesday.

    You can take the ring back maybe next week.

    Hey Mutton!

    Hope all is well!

    Yup, we're starting to clear up back orders - finally! We are still getting caught up and we're still waiting for some frame to arrive (like the XLs and the powder painted frames) but they should all be here within the next week or so.

    Cheers!

    But Chris @ RHUK is in Taiwan until the weekend, so the earliest I'll get it now is Tuesday. Not that I'm that bothered, cos the headset for it's not due to (finally) arrive until the weekend, anyway.

    Well, it's getting picked up tomorrow, which gets it to the UK on maybe Friday. Then you have customs work on that end. Receive it in his warehouse, unpack my amazing packaging job, and then get the frame out to you.

    You should have it in your hands next week. I hope the weather cooperates for you to get out and play.

    Tim,,,wonders if he can sneak inside a carton for the trip to the UK....

    Cheers for the update Tim and Noel. I believe Mel's "special" is still a few weeks away though? Hopefully she won't get too attached to that ring in the meantime.

    Hey soliour!

    I think that Mel's frame is shipping up to Canada from Spectrum Powder Works this coming week.

    Some pics. Hopefully i can get some better shots this weekend....

    Wanted to share some pics of the 5th ride on the DT....it's getting dialed in...


    This was a jump that almost went bad...landed...rolled out fast out of a dry creek..


    This short section of rocks is on a main hike and bike section we have down here....so not too many rocks but it's cool. THe DT just floated over it and i said "where the hell were the rocks!?"


    climbing the beast.....doesn't look like much.....(see next pic down)



    climbing this up about a quarter mile to the top...w/ breaks for pics with a friend....but fun! The DT really climbs SO WELL!







    thanks for playin'!

    The Knolly Down Under

    Here's a couple of shots from just outside Sydney. The Knolly has garnered quite a bit of attention by those that have read reviews on the net over here as well as some interested looks from those who have not seen such a well manufactured bit of kit out here.

    Past weekend at MTBR gathering

    Just a couple shots from MBTB 10 at Rockville Hills park
    Pics courtesy of Nachomc

    I'm loving this bike. Only quibble...rear tire sucks. Kenda Nevegal 2.1 can't keep up with the bike. I've pinch flatted that thing 4 times so far, more than any other prior tire. Side wall is way too thin. it sticks well enough but its outta here. (yes I've played with different pressure options). My carcass plus high speed hits do not work.

    Had the same problem with Nev's but only in 2.35 DTC on my DT. Chad hooked me up with Albert, and is sending Betty up to take over up front.

    Initial thoughts on the Albert is rolls way better, clears soft wet soil well, traction is good, but I think the Nev's hang on a bit better but the Alberts let go way more progressivly than the on/off switch of the Nev's. So far I have not flatted with Albert so that is a HUGE improvement. I have spun out on a couple of climbs that the Nev's hooked up on. Gotta try changing my weighting a bit me thinks.

    What you planning on changing to?

    I think the Albert /Betty combo is going to be tried too. I've heard a lot of good stuff about them.

    Have you considered going tubeless? I switched four years ago and went from 3 flats a week to 3 flats a year. I use mostly Maxxis and Michelin, depending on what's around. A little heavier than the Nevegals maybe, but a bike that's still rolling is a lot faster than one turned upside down getting a tube replaced.

    Tubeless is crossing my mind more frequently. Thing is, I've hardly ever flatted. I think in the past couple years I've had 3-4 total over 4 different bikes. Having 4 in a couple months is a pisser. Time to go shopping.

    Mor V-Tach action

    I just spent 3 days riding on the shore...the conditions were awesome and myself and "the prof" had a great time....he is now the owner of a V-Tach aswell.....hopefully his will be built up soon.

    Here are some pics of the V-tach doing the things it LOVES!

    I just continue to be amazed by how good this bike feels....and I did something stupid this weekend...i test rode a D-T with a 36 Talus (around the parking lot)..... .....it's inevitable! I had my doubts about a 36 on the D-T...it seems to cry out for a bigger fork...but to be honest...this felt perfect.

    The V-Tach loves steeps...it was Noel that talked me into doing this....watching him made it look easy (kinda)

    I think there were maybe 2 or 3 sets of tracks when he hit that. Dudes who ride that trail regularly said 'I don't think that was there yesterday'. Gnomes at work for sure. Very cool.

    And, of course.... solid riding, muttonchops!

    A new V-Tach eh Prof? That should come in handy for the Draper DH when it's finished. Probably going to get me thinking I need to get a 2nd Knolly too. Congrats on the purchase!

    Well, finally time to post on the Knolly thread about my V-Tach...... and after a couple of shakedown rides, it was time to take 'er out. I'm sorry I don't have any pics of me hitting some of the bigger things I've done, the camera is usually in my hands. However, I do have some epic scenery shots - didn't want to feel the wrath of JohnnySmoke by posting those kitchen shots (or is it bedroom?? hmmm.... )

    But before we get to that, props:

    Big thanks to Scott and Kris at Go-Ride.com for hooking me up on the build (my frame was used previously). Their expertise is greatly appreciated!

    Another big thanks to Noel for checking 'er over, some fresh Knolly bling, and for building such sweet bikes.

    the V-Tach eating lunch...damn...this picture does NOT do justice to this line!!



    Okay...i admit this is NOT a picture of a Knolly....its my wife...but its a freeking cool picture



    I did three rides today...Pemberton XC, Whistler Bike Park and some Whistler West Side trails (pictured here)....and I pedallled that V-Tach a sh1t load today and all I can say...is wow...i am still blown away and I have owned it for more than 12 months...it is a miracle bike!

    I headed out with the crew last week for an after work hike-a-bike near canmore alberta. Not exactly flowy single track but a lot of steep rock slabs that are great for sessioning. Also a lot of really sketchy scree and loose rock section that were a test of slow speed handling and line selection skills. Overall a lot of fun. Not the best pics but they get the point across.

    About half way up:



    Climbing back up to session a slab:



    Delerium on the steep:

    Just got back from a twelve day bike trip to norcal with the Delirium. Started off with some Downieville, Tahoe/Northstar and finished it off with a bit of Mammoth.

    Killer bike and with the exception of a leaky Roco the bike couldn't have performed better - I LOVE this bike!

    Props out to Mark "Von" C. for taking the shots...

    Some action in Norway too

    These pictures are also quite small. I will talk to the photographer to get some better ones later on.



    This is me on the first DT frame imported to Norway by the Norwegian Knolly Dealer. The color is of course green as it is my favorite color

    The pictures are from a trip we made to a freeride trail made on a farm about 120 km north of Oslo.

    Huh, huh, uh, huh. Cool. (In my best Beavus and Butthead voice ) Now that looks like D-T territory.

    Great pics D. Looks like fun. That curved/bowl-shaped wall ride looks like a blast. Also looks like I need to get to some lift-served trails to really suss out the D-T.

    Thanks K Rob, that bowl shaped wallride is a new addition on Twilight Zone, which was a new trail on Mammoth Mtn. - short but sweet. Aren't you fairly close to Northstar?

    If things go well tomorrow my wife, son and I will be in much closer proximity to this stuff - finally!

    Awesome looking trails. Kudos to Barb for getting back in the saddle! I saw an earlier post with her riding 7 months pregnant...that's some dedication. Kinda leaves me without excuses!

    Shot taken of Manny from BRC working the corner aboard his DT on this mornings ride. Watching him ride this bike is a sight to behold. Seems like speed wise he pushes his Deleirium as hard as his DHR. We both agreed at the bottom of the hill that these bikes hold a mean friggin' line.

    For those of you living way up north including you boys at Knolly...85* by 10:30AM down here by the border with good Mexican food to follow...

    Alright, my better half (and MTBR super-poster) hasn't thrown anything up here, so since it's a crap rainy day and I'm just dorking around with some new computer toys, here's a few on the Del-T from this year:

    Riding not Sliding during Crankworx:


    Further down on RDS:


    Requisite Dirt Merch shot:


    Yah, I pedal her uphill occasionally too:

    Great shots. Looks like the bike is trreating you well up there, and being put to good use.

    Several of my buds (dft, Scott, Steve) rode with you and EB and were impressed with your stash of trails up there.

    Ah yes, the SoCal boys. Their eyes were wide like saucers on some of our local trails. I told 'em to stop drooling so much, they might make them muddy!
