    last time it will be this clean

    Since I had some updates, I figured I'd wipe it down with a rag and take a few pics.
    Honestly, pics don't do this bike justice. The white hides all the detail in the frame and the shapes are never as nice in the pics you see posted here.

    Updates:
    +MRP miniG SL - Green (thanks Noah!)
    +Chromag Lynx DT saddle (thanks to Chad @ Red Barn Bikes)
    +Heavy wheels - Hadleys laced to Atomlabs (waiting on thru-bolt kit). DH tires not pictured (MM GGf/3Cr). Re-lacing the CK HD rear for trail purposes.
    +Schwalbe Big Betty in TrailStar compound
    +X.9 Short cage (toasted the medium cage)






    Calhoun...ready for Paj/AF indeed.

    After some real time spent on this bike...I'll say that it absolutely rips. Combining 1x9 with a height-adjustable post is great for AM/FR riding and the MRP has been tits, even with heavy log/rock strikes so far. The Knolly suspension is not over-hyped at all - it is active when you want suspension and ramps up nicely. The bike is every bit as stiff as my Ventana, which says a lot. The Totem SA requires you to ride it hard to get it to open up - luckily, the Knolly begs you to ride harder too.

    You have the DH damper in the Totem? I have the coil/DH version and it is very free flowing. If you have the floodgate version, you might look into the mod, it really opened up my buddy's fork.

    Nope, I have the MiCo non-DH damper, and it is already modded (i.e: floodgatectomy). I am going to give it an oil change as soon as I have a chance, as I've only quick-lubed it in the last 4 months.
    Some say the solo air isn't as plush as a coil...I won't hesitate to drop a coil in if need be. Coming from a Lyrik 170 DH coil, these are two very very different forks in damping performance, and I like to run my damping all the way open when possible.

    Chromagftw - running 1x9 with 32t x 12-34r iirc...I have a 35t to throw on for DH trips. Thought about the whole 1x10 or just a 36t cassette...but then realized I'd rather just suck it up and try harder!

    CZ - sounds like you are running the same Totem setup as me. Floodgate mod etc. You really like running the compression all the way open? I was happy with my previous settings - 1 preload spacer which gave me 30% sag and I would typically run 8-10 clicks of LSC then 11/2 turns of HSC to control BO on the biggest hits. I cant say I spent too much time playing around with the settings and this is what felt okay.
    After riding my Jedi with a Boxxer I really struggled to enjoy the softer plusher Totem. So I went on a mission this past month and I have really spent time to get my Totem dialled. First thing I did was pop another preload spacer in but this didnt really help give me that Boxxer feel. So I found a section of trail that I have really been enjoying lately. Fast, narrow and the right amount of chunk to let me be comfortable and feel the bike out. After multiple runs I have ended up with 2 preload spacers giving me 25% sag, 12 clicks of LSC and almost 2 turns of HSC. This was also a result of reading thread lately about the tendancy to run too little compression.
    I started out with 1 turn of HSC and played with the LSC from 6 clicks then to 12 to get a really good comparason. Then I played with 10 and on to 12 etc. At the end I did another run with 6 and jumped to 12 to be sure of what I was feeling. Lastley I played with HSC. When I started long travel riding I thought the objective was for plushness but I always ended up adding compression. What I found running this recent test was when I lowered my compression settings the bike felt plush but through the chunk I had less control. The front would be diving alot like a pogo and through corners I was much less precise. When I added LSC the bike seemed to settle/calm down and my cornering was much tighter. I dont fell like I am working so hard to control the bike, another bonus seems to be that I can get the bike off the ground easier when I need to double a section. My next step is to remove 1 spacer but I am still testing.

    Just interested to hear your reasoning for running your Totem so open. I must also added I have just dropped my tire pressure by 2 Psi and this also made a massive difference, 26Psi front and 28Psi rear. Running the suspension firmer and tires softer seems to be the ticket for me.
    I just want to ride.

    I'm afraid it is as simple as air vs. coil on this one - you have a coil, right?

    The wife and I built it up last night and we were messing around with the different angle settings on the frame. I've never taken a measurement but I'm guessing if it's setup fully slacked out it will be around 63.5deg? She mentioned in the parking lot test that it felt kind of sluggish fully slacked out but parking lots aren't the most reliable proving grounds. This is the wife's DH bike so we will play with it this summer and see how she likes the various setups.

    Well, after much searching, I was finally able to buy a 2010 black ano frame a couple of weeks back. Have had my eye on this frame for about a year and now it's mine.
    Quick build to get it up and running, so specs are...
    Frame 2010 Knolly Delirium

    Cranks Shimano XT with Blackspire 26/40
    Cassette XTR 11-36 Cassette (10 Speed)
    Front Derailleur XT E-Type M770
    Rear Derailleur X0 Med cage
    Wheels Hope Pro II (F & R) Spank Subrosa rims

    Anyone know if you can go a X9 28/42 on this frame?

    Great Looking Ride!

    You could slack the bike out if you were to move the shock bolt into the lower setting. I would think you'd want it more slack with the set-up you are running!? Attached picture shows which bolt I'm referencing.

    Thanks for that suggestion, but being a total newb, what would be the advantages of doing that?

    A slacker bike is a lower bike, but a longer bike. It will handle the faster, chunkier stuff a bit better. Steep DH and that sort of stuff. It will drop your BB about 1/4"/10mm. Try it both ways and see if you notice the difference.

    FD question?

    I recently purchased a Shimano FD M770-E type XT for my Delirium because I would like to try out a 2x9 setup. Can I mount the derailleur directly to the frame or does it need to be mounted on the bottom bracket shell using the bb plate. Sorry if it's a stupid question....any input is appreciated.

    Not a stupid question at all.
    Been sorting this out myself. You'll need the bb plate to attach the e type.
    You can't run the bb bracket with a GXP bb at 73mm. GXP can not run the etype bb bracket as it'll through out your chain line. You'll have to source another bracket. I used a ethirteen DRS e type iscg 05 to get around this.
    Shimano can run the bb bracket, but again, I did not like the chain line whilst running XT 28/40t combo.
    My bikes build up is posted on rotorburn.com, under thr same user name as here. Not enough posts to add links yet.
    I will say that the x9 setup is not bad. But the front d is not really where I would like it to be using the DRS backplate. Trying to source a sram direct mount to replace the etype.

    Thanks Rod,
    Funny I had seen your build and I was going to hit you up about it. Pretty sweet build bro.
    Yeah Im not really digging my chain line as well while running XT 32/22 combo. So hence my question. I thought there for a minute that the FD was mounted incorrectly or something...I do a lot climbing on the Delirium since its my do it all bike so I tried the 2x9. I might give the 1x10 a try and see how that works out. Thanks again, Ko-g

    Delirium '10-Front D's blocking the ISCG05 upper hole. Anyone ?

    Etype derailleur can be mounted to the frame after removing the bb mount. Spacer placement and orientation is important when doing this. If using an ISCG05 chain guide it will need to be specific for the Etype.

    Thinking of buying a frame to build up! Had a NomadC, currently have a Yeti ASR-7 that I love! Is $1450 fair for a used 2011? It will be my only bike and I'm a bit concerned pedaling this bike up hill. I will have a fairly light build with a 2x10 drive, hopefully XX1 soon! Google search gives me crap as far as new bike/frame sales here in the U.S!

    Delirium hasnt seen production since mid 2011. I dont think you could find a "new" frame anywhere. I'm hoping to get a bit more then that for my 2011 that I have for sale. Its on ebay for $1400 starting price and I have had a ton of questions about it, I think it will go for $1500-1600, they were $2200+ new.

    Seems like a deal.

    As far as climbing, yeah, that bike will climb. Ran mine with a heavy build (40lb) and a 1x9 drivetrain (35t front ring) and climbed everything I could on it, legs always gave out before traction would. I'd do 20mi AM rides on it without a problem.

    That's good to hear! Is there a reason the popularity of this bike is not super high? Weight alone? @ craigstr, now watching your frame on feebay! That blue is my fave color Knolly has!

    What are you looking for that your Nomad and ASR-7 couldn't deliver? I'm sure you have thought about a Chili?!

    The Delerium was pretty popular. When they switched manufacturers other models had higher priority (Chili, Podium, Endo). I guess since you can no longer get it as a new bike and it isn't currently being produced riders have forgotten about it.

    Word, it was popular, but not made in huuuuge quantity like the SC and yeti models. They couldn't keep'm in stock, really - when I bought mine in December of 2010, it was the last Large they had.

    I have more fun on the 7 than I did the Nomad, I'm no longer a VPP fan! I simply like a burlier bike! The ASR-7 is capable, I simply love the look of the Delirium and want to try the suspension out! So no Delirium production for 2013?

    Sounds like you would be stoked on the Delerium.

    Not sure about production. You would have to ask Noel or Dusty Bottoms. From the sounds of it they have some other models they want to bring to market before the D. If you can find a used one in good shape, I would jim on it.

    I believe the Delirium was THE MOST popular of the models they had. The reason you may not see many around is that they are just a bit rare (except in CAN and PNW). Its like asking why an Independent Fabrications or Salsa is not a popular frame, they just don't make that many.

    As far as I know. The new Endorphin is slated for 2013, and it seems like they are doing things a little different (650b, and rumors of carbon eventually). I suspect the new Delirium will be more of a hardcore freeride bike, kinda like the Vtach, to distance itself from the Chilcotin.

    So, if you can get your hands on a 2011 Delirium, I would snatch it up in a heartbeat. It is hands down the best "one bike" out there.

    The D is much more a heavy AM/FR rig than the 7 ever was. The 7 was really a long-legged trail bike. The D's capabilities are more along the lines of a burly nomad. The knolly suspension is tits.

    I'm considering bidding on craigstrs, beautiful frame, hopefully its not too beat up! I'm 6-2 so large will work! Buying a discontinued frame worries me, hopefully Knolly stockpiles hangers & bearings!

    I almost think a new Delirium would take away from the Chilcotin. The Chilcotin can be made into a Hard Core Freeride bike can it not?

    Chili falls short for me, not enough travel and for some reason I hate an upright shock!

    Whoa! Might want to pull the reins in on that statement a bit. Hardcore freeride bike?

    Hardcore AM / lite FR with the Chilcotin...

    Not saying I do any real freeriding, but I own both bikes mentioned above and they are very different frames when talking about extremes. There is a reason the Delirium weighs around 3 pounds more than the Chilcotin.

    Perfect! Compare the 2 for me climbing, both long fire road & tech! Also general singletrack XC type pedaling! I'm sure you have specific gearing for each bike but saying if they were geared the same!

    I could be wrong in my statement above, but I really don't think the Chilcotin was designed with that sort of riding in mind. Maybe it can take it, but for how long?

    A good example of this is the shock hardware. The Chilcotin has 6mm bolts and Delirium has 8mm. I have heard of a few people bending the 6mm hardware on the Chilcotin...

    YMMV
