    Knolly Bikes is heading to Eurobike!!

    Noel and I are flying out tomorrow, where he and I will arm wrestle during the 12 hour flight to determine which model will get flipped into carbon first.

    Be sure to 'like' us on Facebook and Instagram for exclusive top secret spy photos taken from my iphone of all the secret carbon CX bikes we are unveiling at the show. Should be fun!

    Woo hoo! Exciting news indeed!

    My vote is for the Endorphin to get the carbon treatment first!

    Remember they serve free booze on international flights, so make your decision at the end so that it is unexpected!

    Have a safe trip and fun at the show!

    Join the herd - offer a 150mm 650b carbon and give it a new name. Hold a naming contest. My suggestion would be to call it exactly what it would be - the "Trendy." Wait how about the RiF? Perfect. The Knolly RiF - Resistance is Futile! Double Entendre right there - the customer can't resist the Knolly and Knolly could not resist the trends that sell bikes and still survive. I would love to be RiF-ed.

    I liked the naming game we played with the Podium. I really thought you should have picked one of my names, originally. But after racing the Podium, I feel you made the correct choice :P

    If it is a 650b, I say name it Contagion. Everyone thought the 29er was a fad. It doesn't appear that 650b is a "fad".
    So it's name should be Contagion. Podium, Chilcotin, Endorphin, and Contagion.

    Are you guys planning on being at Interbike (Outdoor Demo) or Outerbike too?

    Can't wait to see what's up your sleeve.

    So it's name should be Contagion. Podium, Chilcotin, Endorphin, and Contagion.
    CONTAGION I like it. It emotes a feeling of fear, which you want to instill in others if you're racing. It's memorable (aka "catchy" if you want to be punny). It offers a lot marketing options.

    ...and, it makes non-believers, like Herzalot, happy.

    We the people ...

    Hmmm.... Definition of Contagion: a disease spread by the close contact of one person to another.

    Not sure I'd like to ride a disease... Just sayin'

    They named the Chilcotin after a mountain region. Mount Fromme and Cypress Mountain are other popular spots in the North Shore. A Knolly Cypress sounds pretty cool to me.

    If one is going to name the bike After an iconic shore trail I would go with: 7th Secret.
    That one epitomizes the climbing and descending many know and love....and a perfect expression of combining 4 by with carbon.

    Just give us a 150mm 650b ripper and we won't care about its name.

    it-s interesting how different people think about novelties. in germany most of the riders complain about the fact that many, many manufacturers switch from 26 to 650b or even 29er. they fear that (and it seems mostly so) that 26 is on a way of distinction.
    reading these posts, you guys are open to the new stuff and even demand it.

    I'm with the Germans. No 650b for me, it doesn't ride any better and the loss in travel isn't worth it. keep making 26" chilcotins
