    travel? 150mm?
    looks nice, but as we like the chili, this shouldn't be surprising.

    A geo chart would be really cool

    The asylum has a new boss! Looking great, congrats Knolly. Any additional details on the geo? Shock size?

    First Look: Knolly Warden - Eurobike 2013 - Pinkbike

    Pinkbike just posted this up!

    It looks nice, although I'd never buy a 650b frame.

    Where are the geo charts? I sure hope for a rather steep seat angle...

    Looks good. Looks like the perfect one bike solution.

    Bonzoo... I'm guessing that based on Noels design evolution since the Delirium T (super slacked out STA) to the new chili, the STA will be similar to Endo and Chili, which is to say, very ridable even with a ton of Seatpost out...

    What are the frame weights of the Chili and Endo with a CTD shock? (Not sure the frame size for which the 6.75 lbs is quoted in the pic.)



    BTW, this is an engineering question as well as a weight weenie question (i.e. "don't worry about it" answers won't help).

    I'm curious what the leverage curve does, wondering if it falls right in between the Endo and Chili? Not quite as snappy and efficient as the Endo, but more pedal friendly than the Chili...

    Great looking rig. I'm sure the wait list has already begun.
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    Ok... I will be at the Tri-Cycle booth on Saturday and ask them about the geometry.

    My GUESS: it will fall more towards the Endo's leverage curve as the larger contact patch and the "roll over junk easier" ability of a larger tire would help bring those Chili characteristics to an Endo leverage curve. (At least that's what I'm hoping. I want it all in one bike!)

    I would really love that bike, I would be considering a 650b bike as my next one, and I don't expect to change my bike anytime soon.

    That would be my guess as well. The tubing is Endo based with a beefier downtube. I would think since it is geared towards Enduro, it would be based more on the Endo.

    I agree with both of you as well. They might as well have called this thing the "quiver killer," b/c that sure as hell is what it's sounding like.

    6.75 lbs with a Fox CTD, that's most likely a medium. Anyone know what a medium Endo weighs with the same shock, for comparison?

    I see it as a great one bike solution, but 2 26ers are always better than one 650B.

    so fox is only offering a 15mm thru axle 34mm stantion fork? i still dont like that compared to 20mm axle and 36mm stantions on 26" bikes. i dont see hw it will replace an endo and a chilcotin with one bike. it will be a compromise just like building a light chili ir heavy endo
