    Try to get a few local rides in before your trip if possible because adjusting the suspension takes a bit of time to sort out.

    A great investment. Just sold 2 bikes to build the Chilcotin. Planning more. Doing this meticulously to make sure ive get bikes to keep long term. These are those. Its so expensive chopping and changing, dont want to go there again. Fortunately it only took a few weeks to realise that the Chilcotin was going to be a keeper, wont ever sell it.

    These new bikes can't really be improved on by any significant amount, only made lighter or given fancy paint jobs (which grow tiring after a while anyway).

    I look forward to the day where ive a full stable again (5 bikes: cyclocross (for the commute), am hartail, Endo, Chilcotin, DH) of long term keeper bikes.

    Your in a really lucky position. Alot of folks out there struggle to put together one good bike.

    Enjoy the ride mate, your stable is full of thorough breds now. Stay injury free, sunny days are so sad when all you can do is look at them.

    Please post dirty pics of them soon

    ok,,, so we are now 3 days into the whistler trip.... and the bikes just continue to impress.
    when we rebuilt them on sautrday night, we put them on the scales aka dream crushers to weigh them, cols chilli came in at 32lbs, he's happy with that considering the build kit,
    i had grand ambitions, and failed on one but almost got the other lol. the podium topped the scales at 36lbs, not bad i was aiming for 35lb but could easily get it to 34 with a bos idylle sc air,
    the endo i was hoping for arround 27lb, imagine my heart ache and dissapointment when it topped out at 30lbs.. i guess the wheels and fork are were the weight is on this build. oh well it still rides nice and climbs great so cant complain.

    Lol at scales being dream crushers... A similar thing happened to me when I weighed my endo. I've got it down to 29.4lbs. (with lyrik, ccdbair, dropper post, 2.2 trail kings). Was hoping for it to be lighter but the bike still rips regardless. It can be easy to get hung up on numbers but man I don't even remember after hopping on the bike.

    Your Podium weighs less than my Chili, weight isn't the biggest factor. Beer and good times are...

    My Delirium is heavier than your Podium!
    But I never set out with counting grams for my build. I'm big and ride hard in the park so it needs to last.

    Delirian, would you have been with the group of 3 I passed this afternoon on the Farside trail along the Cheakamus River? One was on a blue Knolly and a woman on a Lapierre. I didn't see what the third person was on.
    I was out for a quick rip. I was the giant in the red jacket on a mission. My wife and I have a loop in the area that we time ourselves on as a "friendly" competition.

    LOL!
    Sorry about the woman comment!
    I was moving quickly and only glanced briefly at everyone.
    I was actually surprised to see anyone out on the trails as the weather has been so **** today.

    Hit me up with a PM if you want to go out for a ride any time in the next couple of weeks while you're here. I'm only working casually for the next 2 weeks so my schedule is quite open. Just give me a day or so notice so I can barter child minding for riding time with my wife. We try to give each other equal time on the bike.

    so to follow on with a ride report,
    unfortunatly i cant really give much on the new bikes, as i only managed a few short rides due to crappy weather and a back injury, i only got to ride the endo 3 times and the podium 5 times, and 1 quick ride on cols chilli,
    the endo felt amazing to ride, easy to pedal uphill grips and climbs super nice. and felt like it decends good to, (though i only really did one proper techy decent so cant really comment for now)
    i only had a very short spin on cols chilcotin, and it felt nice, differant to the endo, it climbed well, grips well corners nice and decends well, though like i said it was a very very short spin on lost lake, ( only one small section on the pea gravel trail)
    of all 3 bikes i got the most time on the podium before disaster struck and my back went on strike lol.
    the podium like the others is an awesome bike, its so fast, it feels stable and inspires confidance, it picks up speed so quick, and it jumps really nice to, super fun poppy bike, again i cant give much feedback at the mo, as i only got 5 rides thanks to my glass back, will give more indeph reviews when i get back on them, got to go through some intense physio to get me back to strengh and into the saddle.

    Nice bikes you have built up there. Too bad about your back, that sucks, but the weather is nice so maybe head to the beach and check out some talent. Really want one of those Chromag stem caps now.
