    sweet!!!
    i9 wheelset?



    upgrade;

    couldn't resist, it was staring at me: "PLEASE BRING ME HOME!!! You know you want me!"

    and so i did, even only riding the steel one for 4 rides, i could immediately feel the difference, i finally understand what "dead spot" is...

    frame was a very early bday present to myself, this is an early bday present for myself.

    YAKEB: Oprah!

    YAKEB: Oprah

    (Stands for Yet Another Knolly Endorphin Build)

    Here's my newly arrived "Oprah" - she's big (a portly 32.14 lbs), she's black, she's bad, and she's beautiful. She was just built up yesterday, apart the initial test ride, I haven't ridden her yet.

    I ordered the basic Knolly AM kit, and made some adjustments from there, ridding of almost all SRAM components and replacing that with Shimano - personally, I'm just more fond of Shimano components.

    Without further adieu - weighing in at 32.28 lbs - heeeeeeere's Oprah!

    Frame - Large Endorphin, Black Anodized
    R Shock - Fox Float RP23
    Fork - 2010 Fox 36 TALAS RC2
    HeadSet - Cane Creek 110
    Stem - Thomson Elite X4
    Bar- RaceFace Atlas
    Grips - Knolly Lizardskins
    Saddle - Chromag Trailmaster DT
    Post - Thomson Elite
    QR - Chromag
    Crank/BB - Shimano SLX
    Pedals - Ritchey Logic (from old nineties-ish Rocky Blizzard)
    Wheels - Sun Ringle MTX29 (it didn't ship with the DT's as per the AM kit, maybe Knolly changed up things a bit)
    Hubs - DT Swiss 240
    Brakes - Magura Louise
    Shifters - Shimano XTR
    Rear Derailleur - Shadow XT
    Front Deralleur - Shimano XT
    Tires - Maxxis Minion

    Photo's coming shortly, as soon as I figure out how to convert NEF images on my Mac...

    I took her for a ride this afternoon, and with the seat adjusted, my butt was right over the rear wheel. The seat was centered between the BB and the rear axle - is this 'normal?' It made the front end act sorta squirrelly and light, but the rear remained planted.

    Hey BAG1 - curious as to why didn't you follow the frame cable routing?

    Funny you ask. I tried a bunch of different ways and finally called Bryan over at Knolly and asked for his advice. This option is what he recommended. I found that if I used the tabs it left me very little loop at the bars. Could be something specific to the Elixir's but this seems to work fine. Not the prettiest set up though !

    Hey BigAirGar,
    The bike looks good. You are the second person I havr seen rocking the white lines recently, and it definitely blings it up!

    You don't quite have the routing as I described. Looking at the left side of the bike, and your rear brake cable, there is one more cable boss at the bottom of shock mount that you should tie to. From there you want to go to the rocker link, which is the longer and lower linkage. You are currently tied into the swing link, which could potentially cause a kink in your cables, as it does rotate quite a bit under full travel.

    I don't see any pictures of the full right side of your bike, but it looks like the the cable routing is close, you just need to tie into the rocker link, and I think it is complete. If you want to post a pic of the right side, I could certainly verify it.

    Cable routing

    Thanks Bryan.

    Once I get the bike cleaned up I will re-post with your suggestions. Appreciate it.

    Quick question, I just got my Endorphin, I have the RP23, it does not seem so plush, do I let air out or do I fool around with the rebound? Any advice?

    It is stiff, I have to work with it a bit, maybe put a coil. Climbs well, and corners like it is on rails!
