    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    Sunday stroll

    Switched to a Fox CTD from CCDB Air. Smooth right out of the box and no fuss. I like it simple.

    Great to hear on the CTD as I just purchased one for my bike! How much do you weigh and what pressure? Is there really a great diff in the performance with the flip of the switch?

    Thanks Aedubber, I guess a little red makes a difference

    Only 1 ride so far so I guess it's too early to make an accurate review. Need the "NBS" new bike syndrome fades off a bit before I make my honest opinion on this baby.

    So far my first impression is, who need a downhill bike if you have a Chili
    Climbing is more or less similar to my HL spot except that this is a longer leg version with better and controlled suspension.

    More reviews to come once its all all dialed in
    I definitely made a right choice

    I weigh 170 geared up and run the shock at 145 lbs. I ride mostly in the trail setting for what I ride and occasionally put it in the downhill position for some rougher stuff. Not a lot of extended climbing so I never set it on that side. You can definitely feel the difference between the settings. It's a good feeling shock, very similar to the 2012 RP23 I run on the delirium. Fox is putting out good product.

    I don't think a time table has been set for the new 3D rockers.

    New Chili just in time for the snow

    Finally got my Chilcotin today after a few weeks waiting for all the parts to come together. Unfortunately, Denver finally got snow today, too.

    Knolly Chilcotin: Build Information, Photos and Set-up Thread-rlknolly.jpg

    Bike setup:
    * Frame Size & Color: XL Black
    * Rear Shock: CCDBAir
    * Fork: Fox 36 RC2 Fit 170mm
    * Brakes: Shimano XT
    * Shifter: SRAM XX1
    * Crankset: SRAM XX1 32T
    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM XX1
    * Pedals: Straitline
    * Stem: Atomic Labs 50mm
    * Handlebar: Atomic Labs 780mm
    * Seatpost: Rockshox Reverb
    * Saddle: WTB Valcon
    * Cassette: SRAM XX1 10x42
    * Headset: Cane Creek AngleSet
    * Grips: Oury Lock-on
    * Tires: Maxxis Ardent 2.4
    * Rims: WTB Frequency i23
    * Hubs: Industry Nine
    * Spokes: Sapim

    I'm 6'6", 210 lbs ready to ride.

    Now I need to find a reasonably close, dry trail to try it on.

    They're pretty. Because of the snow, I haven't even rode the bike on pavement yet so I don't have anything of substance to share.

    Nice bike man!

    TiSS'er, as a NOOB if i ever went down to ride your trails I would have a three week layover or until which time I would be given medical clearance to fly back home. One day I might be ready, one day.

    +1

    Also, what did your build weigh. (Curious how much weight was lost with the XX1 parts replacing/obsoleting the other components.)

    Will do. I'm eager to see how it does without a guide.
