    Cheers,
    Thanks for the update Noel. I've got the medium spacer in mine and it's working well.

    Enjoy Fruita.

    *Tires: Maxxis Ardent 2.4 Exo front 2.25 Exo rear.
    *Tubes: Q tubes 2.1 front 2.4 rear

    Rider:

    Frame and CCDBair weight: 8 lbs. 2 oz.

    Frame was very easy to build. The line routing and front deraileur mount on the Chilcotin are excellent.

    Nice build, Bubba how is the fit ? You are around my build & have opted for an 80mm stem, do you normally like a larger frame ?
    I'm planning on a 50mm stem & 800mm bars on my size large if it ever turns up.

    Thanks Geo, The fit is great for me. I have a long torso/short leg combo for my height. My riding style may be a little different because I like to have good leverage on the front of the bike for manuals over trail obstacles. It is possible that my manual technique just sucks, but I can't deny that I like the bars up near seat level most of my riding.

    I have a harder time lifting my Delirium's front end with the 70mm stem and 750mm wide/ 20mm rise bars. At high speeds, the short stem / wide bar combo works fine for getting the front end up. But at slow speeds, the longer stem / riser bar gives better leverage to lift the front and is more comfortable for long rides.

    "Slam that stem" just doesn't work for me.

    Interesting... never looked at set up from this perspective.

    Welcome to the tribe

    Bike looks pretty cool with those neon pedals. I'm guessing you're down to 31.5 lbs now.

    The way the decal plays with the light makes me jealous. Hopefully the 2013 Delirium comes in black on black so I can join the club.

    fedup,

    that chilly looks doooope! nice work. those black frames are stupid HAWT

    Bubba, interesting you are rocking the D/chili quiver, not too many with this combo i would guess.The more obvious combo of Podium/chili or D/endo seems to prevail. Curious to see what you thoughts are on it after a few months. Where is most of you trail and shuttle/park riding at? I lust after the chili, already have a D that I love, want to build a full blown DH rig but can't currently justify it, and really just need a trail bike for long and lighter duty rides. cheers

    I will post up more about the Chili and Delirium in another future thread. I doubt my experiences will be much different than Woodyak's though.

    So far I am really digging the Chilcotin for trail rides and fast/flowy jump and berm style riding. It is really quick through the corners and accelerates better than the D. Another obvious thing that I have noticed is that the Chilcotin's rear suspension does not eat up chunky trail as well as the Delirium. Small and medium hits are good, but when the trail gets really rough with constant bumps, the Chilcotin cannot keep up with the beating. Shock tuning may improve this some, but it is a different bike and I can't expect it to do the same thing.

    The Chilcotin and Delirium quiver is perfect for me. I can use either bike on the trails here in the PNW. If one bike is down, I have the other one to ride. They are just different enough to have their own specialties and similar enough to cover all of the bases.

    Back to the builds.

    Like a Virgin

    Crash the Dog gave me a great deal on this White Lyrik RC2DH, 170mm that I could not pass on. I was reluctant getting white on white but after I got it, it doesn't look bad. Thanks RJ, the fork feels great!

    Updated pick with Lyrik RC2DH

    Looks great!

    Is it a Solo Air? I'm loving mine so far.

    Yes, it is the Solo Air. Yours is 170 right? do you run bike in slack or steep setting?

    It does not have as much small bump compliance as the micro ti. The ti is a great fork. Especially for the low price I got it at . It brake dived a little more as it is really active in the initial stroke. It really ramps up at end stroke, even with adjusting the volume adjust. The Solo Air is more consistent feeling/linear than micro ti through full travel. I will probably stick with the Lyrik as it is not that much higher A to C length for a 170 (like .4") and actually comes in lighter than the Marz. I did notice the higher BB with the 170 on and thought about running bike in slack setting all the time but it will be just too slack with my .5 angle reducer cup and the longer A to C length. Guess I could always lower it to 160....
    I will say that I am keeping Marz as extra. It really is a nice fork. I made a stupid mistake and broke an internal nob on the lockout and had to send it in to Marz to fix. I was without a fork/bike for a while and got this offer from Crash the Dog. If it wasn't for me being without a fork for a while and the deal on Lyrik, I would still be running Marz. Kind of long answer...sorry.

    With performance being fairly close, I would take the Lyrik all day considering its lighter and the Marzo looks like a cheap walmart fork, FUGLY!

    Funny that the KS is the only colour on your bike.

    Looks great! Thanks for posting a white Chili pick. After seeing all the black and raw I start to think I'm not going to like my white when it comes, but your bike helps ease my doubts.

    F.N.G, glad the fork got you up and running. I told you white on white would look awesome. Headed to Moab next week to beat the snot out of mine. Couldn't be more stoked maybe I'll snap a few pictures and post up on this thread.

    Here's a somewhat lame photo of my bike. I've been having too much fun riding it to take some decent photos. I'll take some better photos after giving it a proper cleaning.

    So far I'm loving everything, except for the shock. I should've gone with my instinct to use a coil, but thought I'd give the air a try after my dealers assurance that RP23s have come a long way and feel just like coils - not.
