    I think all you guys screaming for another DT are miss informed LOL... The Chilcotin is the "ONE" bike as I'm leaving this bike as is for my gravity days. I am in the process of building up a 30lbs Chilcotin Enduro ripper as those of you looking for a do-all bike & its under your nose!......TBC

    I totally agree bionicman! The Chilcotin is IT!

    ps: nice bike
    Sure am. I installed it without it just on accident and as soon as I started to tune the RD I could tell it was off. Easy setup with it on.

    Hi guys. New Chili owner here.

    I am swapping almost all my parts from my Uzzi and curious to know if there is any compatibility issues with using an 83mm crankset (Saint M815) to the Chili's 142mm rear spacing. I ran this with my Uzzi's 150mm rear spacing (73mm BB) and didnt have an issue with the 1x10 setup. I also used the RF bottom bracket spacers for it to run correctly.

    I will also run the Chili 1x10, anyone running this setup or have experience? Worried about chainline and cross chaining.

    Thanks.

    I think you might have some chainline issues, but if most of the spacers are on the nondrive side, that would help, though I don't know what that would be like to ride. Any reason not to run a proper 73mm crankset?

    A 142mm rear end has the same spacing for the cassette from centre as a 135mm. A 150mm rear end has the cassette positioned further outboard. I would guess approximately 7.5 mm, but don't know if that is exact or not.

    Purchased the 83mm crankset 2 months ago. Hard to get rid of it but worst comes to worst if I know there will be issues then I will sell and get a 73mm specific crankset.

    5mm spacer installed on the drive-side with a 2.5mm BB spacer between frame and BB. On the non-drive side there is 10mm worth of spacers. I will keep an eye out for cranks then.

    A Few new things on the chilli

    -Loaded Bars
    - MAxxis High Roller UST tires (man these things are heavy but roll nice and better tubeless than the Bronsons I had on)
    - KS LEV Dropper post. Loving this bike. Getting a new coil (500) as the 650 they sent me feels too springy.

    To make people feel better, the waist sizes in jeans have increased while the waist size markings have remained the same (e.g. 33" waist jeans now are over 34" around). I wonder if fish scales (the kind that weigh them, not that they wear) are calibrated to weigh heavy and bike scales are calibrated to weigh light so we feel better about ourselves?

    Still haven't gotten a ton of rides in, but I'm pretty impressed so far. Spent most of last season on a hardtail, as I have two Transitions, a Trans Am and Preston FR and got sick of climbing with the Preston. I am seriously considering getting rid of the Trans Am, because this thing only weighs about two pounds more and it pedals great.

    I got out on my Chili today, did ~850ft of climbing. It was awesome. It climbs perfectly sitting or standing. When the terrain was rough and steep it didnt slip once and when i got out the saddle all effort contributed to the bikes momentum.

    A couple i know each had a go climbing on it and they were both like 'oh wow', lol.

    I'll do the monarch crest trail a few times this summer and I have a feeling this bike is going to be perfect for that terrain. Now I just have to try and be patient for the Thomson dropper. In the meantime I got a smoking deal on a composite D3. Time to sharpen my aerial skills/launch my body off things I have no business riding skills.

    Just ordered an Ardent from CRC for $37 - seemed like a good deal. I'm thinking about Hans Dampf TSC for the front. I do most my riding in AB/BC so lots of rocky, rooty trails.

    i like to have tyres that have the same volume front and rear, else your tipping the bike a bit. the ardents are high volume. if i were you id get 2 ardents, then later, two HDs, then decide which pair you ride for which trails and in what weather conditions. the ardents are good to go for any of the conditions you described.
    i bought loads of 'nearly new' tyres a while back and rode each pair a week at time on the same trails. you quickly work out whats for you (and when its for you). later i sold the tyres i didnt want for the same 'nearly new price' so it only cost me postage to do the tests

    no-ones going to answer the question but you and your experience of them on your trails.

    Good point on the tire volumes! Hadn't taken that into consideration. Luckily I bought 2 Ardents already as they were such a good deal

    26x2.25 in a Maxxis if that's what you purchased are going to be tiny. Maxis 2.4's measure about the same as a 2.1 Nevegal.
