    So I'm not the only one who didn't find the VPP on my Blur LT to NOT be all that and a bag of chips?

    Nope, you weren't the first and you won't be the last. With the Warden hitting the streets in the next few weeks, I have a feeling that there will a be a lot more people who experience the benefits of the 4x4 design, and decide to join the loyal Knolly followers.

    I dont know for sure, but I think they use Light Bicycle rims. They use the same designators for the different rim types. I cant comment on how they ride (weather still terrible), but the fit and finish look top notch, and they mounted up with no fuss. The price is hard to beat, a little more than a grand delivered for the complete wheels with tape and valves. Plus they offer a 2yr crash replacement at 25%
    Hello! Just curious if you have had some ride time on your NOBL's. I placed an order for Derbys (for the 29er), and they are on back stock with a 5-6 week wait. Considering the NOBL's.

    Ive had a couple of rides on them and so far they have been rather unremarkable, which I guess is a good thing. Its hard to say how they compare ride wise vs what I was riding before because I switched to completely different bike/set up vs what I used to ride if that makes sense. I can tell you I weigh about 250lbs geared up and they carry me along with no complaints. Id like to be able to tell you how they perform when jumping/dropping, but alas I also switched to flat pedals when I built my Chilli and for some reason I'm finding difficult to commit to certain sections I wouldn't think twice about while clipped in....Its really annoying actually.

    Last piece of the puzzle

    Finally got the last big purchase for the chilcotin, Light Bicycle 33mm carbon rims. The bike is pretty much exactly how I want it (yea I could have some fancy group but SLX is 100% fine for me). I will be riding this bike until it breaks, then it will be wall art. Knomer for life!

    -Large frame
    -Avy Lyrik coil/avy dhx 4 w/ ti spring
    -Full SLX group
    -KS i950
    -Deity bars/transition stem
    -Hope pro 2 evo hubs, LB 33mm carbon rims (Schwalbe HD front, Spec GC UST rear)
    -MRP G2
    -Spank spike pedals
    -WTB saddle

    33.58 lbs

    Hmm. Interesting. I have been testing 3 6" bikes this winter. I will sell the Mojo HD, but am still debating the Nomadc and the Chilcotin. Maybe it is setup, but my Nomadc is more "playful" than my Chilcotin. And they were setup fairly close. I can throw that Nomad around easily up and down. On the Chil, well, it just scoots up those easy/moderate rocky trails, and just stays planted on the downs. I guess I will suffer this summer by riding them both, and maybe getting them both on some DH.

    Oh--the Mojo HD rode very well, better uphill than the Nomad, but maybe not as fun on the down. Just didn't excite me.

    I've had a similar experience with the Nomad. Attributed it to a couple lbs lighter & suspension design.
    Nomad ups = jack rabbit
    Nomad downs = jack rabbit on crack
    Chilcotin ups = Mtn goat
    Chilcotin downs = antelope with lion hot it's tail

    I like the downs! :-)

    So i decided to something a little different with my Chili as the Warden will be my new trail bike, so here it is...Chilcotin Park Edition! Still undecided on the drivetrain, could go with a 34T in the front or a 11-34 in the back instead of a 11-23.

    Considering the Chili was designed around a 160mm suspension, but that many including me run 170mm, I was wondering what difference it makes to run a 170mm fork with external cup headset VS zero stack. Any experiences?

    Absolutely! I run a 170 Lyrik and an external cup AND run it in slack mode. That puts my Chili at 65.5 head angle. We ride in what was voted the most technical trail system in the US and the bike is phenomenal with this setup. Climbs anything and rips DH. The Chilcotin is an amazing bike! I can't say that enough...

    Funny because I started with the Lyrik 170, external cup and slack angle and found the bike not well composed during the climbs. Going to steep mode and moving the saddle forward was very beneficial.

    However, I guess I was wondering if there are still benefits to reap by reducing the height of the front (going with a zero stack headset or reducing the fork's travel). Some of trails I ride are quite narrow and I sometimes wish for a bit more nimbleness.

    Just finished building this up! Just a few small details to work out, but it's 32.7 lbs as it sits. First ride will be Thursday at Highland, then a weekend in Kingdom Trails in Burke, VT.

    I just sold my Chili and Iím kicking myself for doing it.
    It was just an over kill for the trails that Iím riding now so Iím saving for a Warden.
    The sad thing is I just installed a new Avalance cartage in the fork and a Woody shock.
    This is one bike that I will truly miss.

    I sold it with out the Woody shock so if anyone is interested in a great shock let me know, I will let it go for a great price.

    Cool-blue Rhythm A couple of months in..

    So Ive a couple of solid moths on my Chilcotin and Im quite happy with it. Admittedly the Slash I had prior climbed a bit better when it came to smooth dirt/gravel road climbs. But outside of that the Chilly owns it hand down. The Slash took a bit of man handling when it came to railing berms, the Knolly however is out freaking standing. The way it just settles into its travel and sticks when your coming around is hard to put into words. The other thing thats glaring obvious comparing the two is how active the rear end is even while braking making it very predictable, and smoother in the chunk, and pretty easy to plow if thats your thing. Im not the best when it comes to jumping but I really cant tell any difference between the 2. Dropping however is pretty much just a matter of holding and letting the bike do its thing.

    The Nobl carbon wheels have held up without a hiccup even with my 250lb weight and the occasional trip to the bike park. Im quite happy with them. And just because here another pic.

    I would be interested in a more detailed comment on the Nobl wheels. What do you like about them? How have they differed from what you had before? Etc.

    I have the rims built up with kings and X-ray spokes. They are holding up great this far. A few good rock strikes from under inflated tires and lack of grace through tech sessions, but no visible damage to the rims. They are hooked, which doesn't seem to be an issue. If you want to run them with Stan's strips, you will need valve extensions as the rims are deep, and anything less than a 42mm valve stem will make it impossible to attach a pump to inflate. I will be converting mine to tubeless in the next few weeks and can update you on how that goes if you like.

    As far as likes and dislikes, the only complaint I would have is that the machining where they cut the hook in the rim sidewall isn't absolutely perfect. This is only noticeable when in a truing stand, but it makes you think the rim is slightly out of radial true. I don't think this is uncommon in aluminum rims either, but I thought I would mention it. Pretty much everything else I can say about them is great. They are lighter than the old velocity VXC cross country rims I had on my XC bike at under 400g. They are as stiff if not stiffer than the mavic 721s I was running and are similar in width. I've put dents in the 721s that have left the nobl rims visibly unaffected. It's my first season on them so I can't comment on their long term durability but it looks good so far. They have also taken a couple rock strikes on the sides which have left visible scratches, but again seem to only be cosmetic.

    Thanks. What about the way they feel as you climb / descend etc?
    I'm on 719s, a little lighter than you and generally not too hard on wheels, but I am intrigued by the various carbon options out there in this price point.

    As expected, bike feels more peppy on climbs due to the lighter weight. On the downs, they are as stiff or stiffer than my 721s. A little more predictable in the corners maybe? Tire pressure and tire choice will make a bigger difference on the down.

    JHart, seems like that Pike a good match. Thoughts? I've got a Lyrik DH, but would love to get a Pike dual position to get a more aggressive climbing position for the steep ups.

    The pike is awesome! I can't say enough about it. Mine is not the dual position, I was considering going that way since I do a lot of climbing but my buddy has a Lyrik that is Dual Position and he is always messing with it while we are riding and it doesn't seem to make a huge difference. I only notice the front end wondering on really steep stuff where its hard to keep my weight forward but I think even with dual position I would be having a hard time.

    But again as for the fork itself, I am very pleased, it handles all I can throw at it and I am sure a lot more than that. I have ridden the Lyrik, Fox 34 and Manitou line up and this blows them all out of the water.....But I have head lots of good things about the new Fox.

That said, I follow the DH World Cup closely and I'm very interested to see who's going to be killing it this year and on what rig. It was pretty fun watching the World Champs in South Africa last year with riders on single crowns, 650B, full DH bikes, and the prototypes from Devinci.

    I think the warden climbs better the chili and is a bit more lively on the downs . Bigger wheels fill in bigger hole on both the downs and ups

    Updated Chili. Decided to put a 160mm Pike I had on instead of the Zocchi 55CR. Rode it this way all weekend at Snowshoe Mountain in WV and never felt held back. Took it out last night on the local trails and was very surprised by how it climbed.

    Thanks mate! By the way sir is CCDB Air CS is much better for Chilcotin? Or Inline is ok? My original plan was to get Air CS but my supplier sent me Inline..

    For that bike I would have the CCDBCS, just because the bike is capable for long fast descents.

    Sweet bike! Love the build. That team orange is awesome! A buddy of mine is having his orange Chili built as we speak, and I have a green one being built as well. I'm stoked, seems like an awesome bike!

    Got a question, I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on one of these. Did any of you come from a Canfield (The One) that's what I'm comparing it against. No way to try one out, just going on your reviews here. Thanks.
