    Red is one of the stock colours on the Knolly Chili page and any powder coater can turn your Chili red in a few days and for $100-$200.
    Safe riding,

    I think that is orange

    In the chilco website red color is not a stock color, only orange, green, yellow, red, white and black. it is a pity (IMO)

    Wow if that's orange that's a terrible photo. Looks 100% red to me.

    I guess the powdercoater is the easy solution then.

    Very cool color. Are those both JD's bikes for Rampage or are there two Knolly riders participating. Vitalmtb has a few shots of it built. Looks cool with the white graphics.

    Nice work Noel.

    Thank you guys for the compliments on the red and white Podiums! This was a project done by Knolly's marketing manager: there are only three team bikes (Ryan, James and Garett), and obviously James and Garett will be competing in Rampage next weekend on these frames!

    The orange Chilcotins were removed from the website because they were a limited edition colour.

    Cheers!

    please powder coat frames no matter what the color is. wet paint just isnt durable enough no matter how cool the color looks
