    Anybody have news from the private unveil at Interbike?

    I was at Interbike yesterday staffing the booth with DSP Racing, I saw a bit from Knolly Bikes on their Facebook page about a private unveil yesterday in their suite although I couldnt get invited. Anybody get to go or was it a "for your eyes only" affair?

    Knolly sure likes to unveil new things at interbike that people weren't expecting...

    In 2009, the word was out about the finalized product for the podium but there was also a brand new Delirium and a prototype Endorphin SL
    For 2010, people were expecting the endorphin sl but they were given a Chilcotin also.
    What will there be for 2012?

    NICE!

    I still can't get on board with 29ers but I think the 27.5 size might be a pretty sweet compromise. Can't wait to try one!

    Is that a Chilcotin or an Endorphin?

    I'm a little annoyed by that picture, because I can't see if it has the weld of death or not.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Keep em coming K, good stuff! Is the link forged not machined on the new ones or is that just a painted one? What's the thought on the redesign, save a bit of weight or stronger? Any crabon protos floating around at this event?

    Bolt is 20mm shorter, 50% stronger, and setup is 40g lighter.

    That's what we call a win/win/win.

    Noel gave a 30 minute class on 'bolt technology & philosophy' at our happy hour yesterday. It is pretty amazing how much thought goes into all of it... grade, length, shank length, thread length, thread pitch, etc. Everyone was nerding out on bolts, it was pretty funny.

    So what did you do in Vegas? Oh, I sat around with a bunch of dudes drinking and talking about bolts. Hahahaha, coming from Noel I know that would actually be a very interesting and entertaining discussion though.

    Can you retrofit that onto a current Chilcotin frame? And if so, when is it available for purchase?

    So its the Endocotin? So nuts and bolts huh, maybe I'm glad you didn't invite me. If 650B is done right, I think its the future of the sport. My favorite bike of the Outdoor Demo was the Intense Carbine 275. That thing just motored over everything, up and down. I was riding the DH trails on it at Bootleg like I was on my Delirium. On the other hand, hated the Turner Burner, I just dont get along with DW links.

    For those who are close to considering putting a deposit down on an Endo (but would def prefer the 650 version), can we get a little info on how to work the order with our LBS? Like will it be retrofit only, separate frame to order, etc?

    Thanks, man. That preview made my day.
