    thinking about co nolloe

    I want a new bike an a lot of people recomend knolly.

    I was thinking about the chille cotton but the amont of pivots kind of puts me off... peopl say that the bearings are german?! I guess that good

    Problem is i have lots of riding styles lile WU Tang.

    I really need an ALL MOUNTAIN bike. Does knolly make one?

    Styles like Wu tang? Get a rigid SS then.

    Knolly makes the best all mountain bikes out there... okay, makes some of the best out there.

    The chilcotin should be pretty good, I don't know who Wu Tang is, but the Chilcotin is a pretty versatile bike.

    The number of pivots at first is kind of daunting, but they really work and are very well made, so no problem. The bike should be pretty laterally stiff and the suspension works pretty good.

    Don't worry about the pivots. The Chilcotin is one of the best all mountain bikes ever. Get one in black ano and you'll be rollin' like a stone cold gangsta in no time.

    Knolly makes some sick bikes. I've owned the 1st generation Endorphin, the Delirium and now the Chilcotin. Don't worry about the pivots I've never had to fuss with them and the frames are stiff as heck. They're a bit pricey so you might have to get the C.R.E.A.M
    Get the money
    Dollar, dollar bill y'all. ha ha!!

    This recommendation above is WAY understated...The Chilcotin is simply "AMAZING" and will blow your mind. The bike will be more than you could ever imagine. Just read my post here...

    The 3 Knolly's I built this year!

    Enjoy,

    No need to be concerned about pivots. I have a '04 V-Tach that still has nearly all of the original bearings and I still ride it regularly.

    Sounds like a sweet Bike!!!

    I just have a couple of set up questions.

    First one is easy. I have an extra large water bottle cage ment to handle a 2 liter bottle (eropean) and some smaller frames it cant fit on. Shold i get an extra large frame or should it fit good on the med(my size)


    Second queston i dont know if you guys could answer. I want to put an xx1 kit on whatever frame I do end up getting. I also know that certain suspenshion platforms work best only in certain chain rings. Has dave weagle ever chimed in on xx1 on a chillcotten?

    Any one else using XX1 on thier chile? If so hows it work?

    First of all, you don't fit your bike to your water bottle. It's the wheel size that matters.

    26" = Small

    27.5 = Medium

    29'er = Large

    *There are 24 and 32 inch wheels if you are "Xtra" ranges.
    Unfortunately, Knolly only makes one wheel size because they are made in China Also, ideally you should ixnay the water bottle cuz when you start shreddin' the gnar the water bottle will throw off your center of gravity. It could also have an affect on how active the 4x4 platform is.

    Secondly, Dave Weagle did not invent the 4x4. It was a collaborative effort between Porche and Benz, but even that is debatable. Nope, Dave Weagle is responsible for the DW Link, the Holy Grail of suspension design. It is so good that he was locked in with Iron Horse and wanted to expand his consumer base back in 2005. Subsequently, Iron Horse was driven out of the industry so that the DW Link could taste the light of freedom. He's also responsible for the Split Pivot design that is currently licensed by Trek Bicycles, as well as the Deltasystem, which has been made popular by Evil Bikes.

    Personally, I'd say your best bet is a GOOD ALL MOUNTAIN hardtail. Suspension is just too darn complicated.

    You shouldn't feel sorry for him, Mrwhlr. He's making $$$ and designing bikes, while you and I, well, we're just a couple of washed up old trolls!

    It's too bad all the traditional homers have left the building. These new age posters are just too smart for us.

    I dont think its right to laugh at me or call me names just cause i like to carry lots of water/pop on rides. I spent alot of money on my water bottle cage and would like to keep using it. If it wont fit on a knolly cause thers too many linkages then just say it

    Fail!

    A good suspension design would help keep that pop carbonated.

    I hate flat soda almost as much as I hate flat trails!

    How in the Fug do you work on your bike in all that clutter? And what's with all those gears?

    BTW, you need to get yourself a real water bottle.

    That's ALOT of overtime, man.

    I'm afraid going full SS on a Chile is yet another limiting factor.

    I'd look elsewhere.
