    Hope amazing awesome

    I new to the forum and the amazing world of knolly so please go easy on me,

    were do I start first of all a massive thanks has to go out to noel for desinging and making the best bike I ever rode and for standing by his word and looking after his customers, so thank you noel,
    Thanks to kevin for selling these amazing bikes, around the world,,

    I just felt I had to post a thread to thank the guys at knolly for making such amazing awesome bikes ,
    here I am on day 3 of the hol with 2 rides on my new chilcotin and I cant believe how blown away I was after yesterdays ride .. we rode a trail I know well and is one of my fav trails (danimal) I was shocked how amazing my new chilli climbs the rear wheel has so much grip I was clearing rooty climbs I could never do before on previous Bike (santacruz) ..
    Then the trail points down and the chilcotin comes alive wow i was shocked how fast this bike is it picks speed so quick the rear is planted no skipping around or rear flex like on my old santacruz butcher, i can't believe how stiff the rear end on the chillie is it rails the turns..
    So thanks again to all at knolly for making these amazing awesome bikes and for being an amazing company who stand by it's customers..

    Thanks dc

    yeah the Chili climbs like a monkey with crampons and is very stable on the rough downs...i like deliberately picking 'the hard line' on mine, its so much fun.

    ahhhhhhhhh my precious, lol....

    yeah i have to say how impressed i am by the latest additions to my knolly fleet. i thought my dt was good all round, nice trail bike good climber, and park bike, the delirium i had, for the short time i had it was even better, but oh my, how the endo and podium are better still.
    where do i start, the podium, nicknamed podifun or flowdium, is just amazing, its so fast yet stable, ive only had 2 days in the bike park on it, and i am totally blown away, today i cleared a techy black that i have never cleared before, and backsided jumps that ive struggled to clear before. this thing is just amazing. i dont know what else i can say. i have noticed as jamie, aka dude said in his recent thread about having to ride more over the front, as yesterday i was struggling for front end grip. today its been fine.

    now onto the endo, or bendorphin as i have named him lol. ( how sad am i naming my bikes lol)
    again all i can say is wow. its differant than cols chilli, and differant to the dt and delirium, it pedals and climbs like my chromag hardtail, so much grip. and surges forward with every pedal stroke, yesterday i cleared a climb that has always had me hiking, its a real sharp steep fire road climb up to lower danimal, i have never cleaned it before on the dt or delirium, but on the endo it was quite easy, even in my unfit state, now for the trail ride, again its just simply amazing, it tracks nicely, is vey manouverable, and picks up speed very quick, i had a few close incidents on danimal lol. i have to say i am er impressed with all 3 bikes,
    so as my little bro already said. hats off to you mr buckley. and thanks for making the best bikes in the world. thanks to all the guys and gals at knolly for making it the bestbike company on the plannet. keep on doin what youre doing.
