    I live and ride in the Kootenays, Nelson B.C. area and I consider this hard core freeriding. So the Chili wouldn't handle this area?

    I don't know if you are aware, but there is a thread about this topic here in the Knolly forum.

    My opinions may vary depending on which bike I just rode . I now have both bikes set up with coil shocks, Fox Floats up front, and 2.4 rubber. The Delirium is 1x10 32 x 36 and Chilcotin is 2x10 26/36 x 36.

    What still amazes me is how well the Delirium pedals for a big bike. I don't notice much difference when just slogging up a fire road. The Chilcotin has the advantage in uphill technical riding. I am able to get better traction with the Chilcotin, especially when it gets steep. I have run 2x gearing on the Delirium and it still does not out climb the Chilly in tech, but the gap is narrow. Basically, the D feels slightly heavier and slower. It is almost as effective at getting up that tech section and good for getting in shape!

    For general single track riding I have fun on both bikes. The Chilcotin has more snap and can accelerate better. Delirium eats the chunk better. Both bikes are overkill for a good half of the riding I do, but I still have a big dumb grin on my face after every ride. I tend to forget which bike I am on and just enjoy being on the trail.

    I could easily live with one or the other as my "one bike". However, the Chilcotin is the one I would keep because it is a better fit for the type of riding I do. I am a trail / AM rider that enjoys a good downhill and a few jumps. Over the past year I have noticed myself backing off on the DH and lighter, snappier bikes are where I am headed.

    Hope that helps,

    I sold my Delirium T which was set up for steepness and jumps, I have to replace it and the only bike I see is the Chilli. and there are no Small framed Deliriums available.

    Knolly has bearings, but you can also get bearings from RWC. No one in our group (5 Delirium riders) has bent a hanger yet.

    As folks have said, the Delirium is an amazing bike. I can't ever see selling my Delirium. I love this bike so much I had it re-painted 6 months ago. This has been my primary bike since I got it. I ride with other Delirium riders, Santa Cruz, Turner, etc. Most of the time, the Delirium riders are near the front on climbs, but we are always at the front on the descents

    It seriously is great bike that will make you smile!

    Bubba13's comments are a perfect summary of the Delirium!

    I take care of my stuff. It was one of the few painted frames that the paint actually stayed on. It was hardly ridden at all this year and not ridden very much the year before either. I ride my trail bike or 29r 95% of the time.

    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
    True, but the 3D rockers should rectify that.

    I am not trying to stir the pot by saying the Chilcotin and only handle this or that. But it was designed with 6mm shock hardware...not traditional FR size hardware.

    If you are a lighter weight rider and need a small frame, maybe the Chilcotin will be stout enough for you?

    I'm 6-2 220lbs geared so I'm sure I will be fine pedaling the D around! @ craigstr, hope I get my hands on it, would be cool to go to a site member who has an appreciation! I would have a 2012 white Crossmax SX wheelset and a 2013 RC2 Float (soon RC2DH Lyrik) waiting for it! Hoping to stay under 34lbs...

    The white wheelset would look amazing on Craigstr's Blue Delirium!

    ok,
    i'm going to throw some old skool Delirium T here.
    hope you don't mind

    I just finished building it up and wanted to share
    I was looking for a relatively light bike that could still take some large drops and such

    It ended up weighing 40lbs, which is probably still a boat anchor to most of you
    but considering my V-Tach weighs 51lbs this bike is light and fun as hell to ride

    I can't understand why Knolly stopped making the Delirium when it is obviously one of the great mountain bikes.

    Yes, it looks real clean! How is the DSP? At 8.5 x 2.5 there are so many shock options!

    I also need to know what bottom bracket the frame takes to purchase a crankset, Google turned up nada for me. Another concern is the paint as craigstr says his is one of the few that still has paint!?

    73mm BB

    Specs are here:
    Knolly Bikes | Delirium
    Some of the first Deliriums had some paint issues, mine did not. I've got 3M tape on the downtube and headtube, the one scratch on the back of the seat tube was caused by throwing all the bikes in a van in Squamish to do shuttles, so its a battle scar from the homeland.

    Thanks! Yea, I have seen that but it only shows me the 73mm shell width. Is it a standard threaded, press fit etc...Good to hear on the paint! I would also like to run a CCDBAir but have not seen one mounted on the D! Any input on the Dueler?

    EDIT: Never mind on the BB, looks like it is threaded! (Sorry for my lack of knowledge!)...

    there's an avalanche woodie on pinkbike tuned for the delirium for $330. i'd get that and swap over the ti spring if it's your correct rate. it will get the most out of that frame

    Sorry, but that isn't "tuned" for the Delirium, it was just installed and ridden for a short while on a D-T.

    the ad states, seller verifies: • Dealer friendly generic valved version

    That one was very clean, mine looks like it's been whipped with a length of bicycle chain, and I still won't take a penny less than $10,000.00 for it!
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Remember, this was also on a D-T, not quite the same as a D, but I'm not sure what difference that makes for a tune...

    It was valved generically so that retailers could sell it and it will work with most bikes and for most riders (i.e. the middle). It would not be ideal for a very light or a very heavy rider since you would be at the end of the adjusters (presumably).

    Getting parts together and should have the build complete by the end of next week! Just got my Mavic Crossmax SX wheelset, not bad at 1750g! ( I have a Atomlab wheelset for lift assisted days!) The fork will be the Lyrik DH 170 in the middle, Talas on the right is sold (hated it!) and the RC2 Float 160 will go back on my Yeti! Another pic of the frame so you can get an idea of what its going to look like! Will be running XT IceTech brakes with 203f/180r! Easton Havoc 50mm stem and Havoc carbon bars! Not sure on crankset yet? I cant wait!!!

    Hasn't been that long since they stopped making them! I'm building up an identical frame at the moment, will post it up when it's done.

    Final(-ish) spec should look like:

    Frame: 2011 Delirium (Large)
    Shock: 20?? Marzocchi Roco TST R Coil
    Fork: 2009 Rockshox Totem Coil
    Headset: Cane Creek 40
    Handlebar: Raceface SIXC 785
    Stem: Kore Repute 35mm
    Grips: ODI Rogue
    Shifter: Shimano XT M780 I-Spec
    Brakes: Shimano XT M785
    Seat: Tioga D-Spyder
    Seatpost: 2012 Rockshox Reverb 125mm
    Rotors: Shimano RT76 203/180
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT E-Type
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT M786 GS Shadow+
    Cassette: Shimano SLX 11-36
    Chain: Shimano XT
    Crankset: Shimano SLX M660 175mm
    Chain Guide / Bash: Blackspire Stinger E-type / E13 Turbocharger
    Wheels: MTX33 on Formula/XT
    Tyres: Schwalbe Hans Dampf TS/PS
    Pedals: DMR Vault

    Bolded stuff is what I still need to order, I have temporary parts from my other bike on it so I could ride it at the end of last season. Current weight is ~40 lb, but it's not my only bike so who cares.


    Should have it all together by the time the trails are clear of snow... ...in April or so.

    Great build socalMX - fairly light but still robust. You are going to have a blast with it. Curious to hear about the Monarch PLUS.

    I haven't updated my Delirium in a while - sits at 33.5lbs. I am adding some new components in the near future that drop some weight

    Think of it this way...to help you remember...

    Steep, the shuttle is upright and so matches the fork in a steep more upright angle.
    Slack, the shuttle is laid down and so matches the fork in a slacker more laid down angle.

    A thread from the dead!

    Time for a thread resurrection!
    Time for some Delirium love!

    I still have my Delirium and I'm still riding the **** out of it!

    Last season my Delirium only saw Whistler bike park duty and has been retired from "one bike" duty. I have a Kona Honzo, and, soon a Banshee Prime, that has been and will be picking up all the pedalling slack.

    With the Delirium only being ridden in the park it was time to update a few things to make it more of a park destroyer.
    I dropped the front derailleur and added a single ring chainguide and put on a DH geared cassette.
    I also replaced ALL of the bearings! It was long long over due! In fact I'm shocked that my negligence didn't cause my bike to explode on me! I guess that's a testament to how burly the Delirium is!
    The only things needed to finish this build to make it WBP ready is red housing and cable for the RD and a Chromag Clocker 36T ring in red for the matchymatchiness bling.

    The other part that deserves recognition is the Raceface BB. I've just replaced it with this most recent update. I was running the original RF BB from my Delirium-T!! It was only last season that it finally started to seriously complain and beg to be replaced! 5 hard years of riding that BB gave me. Through every type of riding imaginable and every type of weather and conditions imaginable!

    Here's the spec list:
    Frame- 2010 XL Delirium
    Fork- RS 2011 Totem Mission Control DH coil
    Shock- 2010 Fox RC4
    Bars- Chromag OSX
    Stem- HiFi 1.5 50mm
    Grips- RF Strafe
    Brakes- Hayes Stroker Ace (first generation!)
    Shifter- Sram X0
    Cranks- RF Atlas 170mm (originals from the DT)
    BB- RF DH Race
    Pedals- Kona WahWahs (originals from the DT)
    Chainring- RF 34T (soon to be Chromag Clocker 36T in red)
    Chainguide- Truvativ X0
    Seatpost- Thompson (original from the DT)
    Saddle- Chromag Lynx
    Cassette- Sram 970DH 11-26
    RD- Sram X0 short cage
    Wheels- Spank Spike Race28
    Tires- Maxxis Minion DHF 3C

    Weight- portly! But I don't give a f**k!

    My stoke for this bike hasn't lessened at all in all the years I've owned it.
    It has pedalled 50km XC epics, shredded gnarly freeride lines in Nelson, BC, climbed 4000ft in single rides, and banged out lap after hot lap in the WBP!!
    Even though this bike is dated this bike does do it all!
    Freeride is not dead.

    Awesome bikes! Looks good but with that much stoke you need to get on feebay and slap some Knolly decals on the downtube.

    Agreed the delirium is still one sick bike! Heres a not so great pic of mine. With a 1.5 degree angle set, this bike makes one heck of a mini dh bike that is still pedal friendly.

    And the best part is you have the new invisible shifter and derailleur cable. I've wanted one since I first saw them and it was call the Delirium T.

    I took the decals off. I'm a minimalist when it comes to visual aesthetics and branding. I want the design to stand out and not be obscured.
    I still have the sweet headtube badge and few smaller decals so people will still know what it is. And, if you stop to talk with me about my bike you'll have a hard time stopping me from going on about how amazing it is! That's all the marketing that's needed!

    Nice set-up!
    I thought about getting an angle set but I think it would make me outride this bike dangerously! When I'm in the park this bike is so solid I ride it like a full on DH sled. It has gotten me very close to hurting myself because it isn't quite a DH sled!
    With the angle set I think it would have me fully believing it could go bigger than I already ride it. I need to keep that in check!

    HaHa!! It's the new "stealth" shifting cables!
