    Always interesting to see people go for a more trail bike build on the Endos, such a great all round bike.
    I did it locally here in Peru, also the gunset weld.
    Now I got a brand new white DT so I build the endo more XCish.
    Before the DT I have it a full all mountain, check my previous post.

    thanks

    After 1.5 years of riding I thought it is time to add mine Endo as well. It went through a couple of different phases but now it is built really strong and indestructible, (well at least for me).
    Anyhow, here it is.

    Medium Endorphin with CCDB
    fork - Lyrik U-turn
    headset - CK
    brakes - Formula 24
    shifters - Sram X9
    habdlebar - Sunline V1
    stem - Kore 50 mm
    seatpost - Thomson
    front derailleur - Shimano XTR
    rear derailleur - Sram X9
    current wheels - Hope pro 2 laced to Mavic 721 rims with a bolt on rear
    second wheels - Hope Pro 2 front hub and CK rear laced to DT 5.1
    front tire - Big Betty
    rear tire - Fat Albert
    pedals - Shimano 647's or Dark cycles flats
    weight - ?

    Nice Endorphin!

    madafaka, what was the deciding factor or factors of choosing an Endo over the DT? I'm looking to get a Knolly next year and I can't decide which one to get: DT or Endo??

    Well...luckily i didn't have to make that choice as i own both...If i needed to decide i would go with the DT.
    Not that it's so much better performing, but i just love to have some extra squish for those bike park visits in the summer!
    I'm sure the Endo would handle anything i deliver in parks(not much to be honest) just fine....

    great looking bike! the ano grey on your endorphin is sweet -- way less purpley than mine. do you know if it's a different shade, or is it just lighting?

    Good eye, its the only one like that. It is definitely grey as opposed to the purple-ish grey normally offered.

    If the Ano Grey was in this shade I would've chosen this instead of white, but you can't really go wrong with white anyways. Love the color!

    It's just like my old Z1 Only, more travel, more stiffness, nickel bling and titanium. Not much to dislike about this fork. Definitely gun shy on air dampers after the past couple of years.

    Update on my wife's endorphin build after soem upgrades and me finally buying a proper scale.

    frame -- Knolly Endorphin w/ Pushed RP23, white, small
    fork -- '09 Fox 36 Talas, factory push tune
    headset -- King
    wheels -- Crossmax ST
    brakes -- Avid Juicy 7, 185F 160R
    handlebar -- Raceface carbon
    stem -- 70mm Thomson X4
    seatpost -- Thompson masterpiece
    saddle -- Selle italia womens boat anchor
    crankset -- XTR
    pedals -- Time ATAC
    cassette -- SRAM 990
    chain - SRAM 991 hollow pin
    shifters -- X0
    front D -- Shimano SLX double
    rear D -- X0
    cables & housing -- Shimano
    tires -- Advantage 2.4 F, Advantage 2.25 R both tubeless with stans

    Weight - 30.7lbs

    Pretty happy with the weight considering the Talas 36 and only carbon is the bar. Very capable all mountian build that she absolutely loves. She only has a couple rides on the crossmax wheelset but she is amazed by the stiffness and quick acceleration. Impressive considering they weren't really much lighter than the previous set of Dt 4.2/5.1 on hope hubs I built. Here's a semi rescent pic from before the wheelset and Push fork treatment.

    Well, I ain't mad. Why should I? I paid big bucks for sth I thought will last longer than 2 years. Anyways, this ain't gonna stop me riding the bike...

    I think that this is the fourth endo that has a crack at that site. Even then, he didn't say that he was angry, but I guess I would have been very angry if this happened. I think that if my Endo had that crack, I wouldn't ride it until it was fixed.
