    A very Knolly Christmas?

    Ok, who got some cool stuff for their bikes? Let's see it. My very Knolly Christmas is only a few days off now

    I am really pumped. I chatted with Craig for 5 min or so and told him I knew nothing about suspension and he gave me the details in Laymans terms. Happy to support a smaller company who cares about the customer.

    Now what Im not happy about is how Im gonna afford to send in my fork to match my rear shock

    Yes, Craig is amazing, and I agree about supporting the little guy, especially when their product is far superior. The shock will spoil you.

    I came off of a diamondback mission that I absolutely loved. It felt great in every scenario from long trail rides to bike park laps. But the itch for the Knolly grew stronger and stronger and I finally just said F it and bought a chilcotin. I first built it up and rode and honestly was not disappointed at the bike, but disappointed that I just had blown 3k on a bike that felt "a little" better than my mission...

    Well fast foward 3 months and I am beyond glad I ditched the mission for the chilcotin. I can tell u its stiff, fast, good geo, yada yada but that wont mean a whole lot til you get on it and ride.

    The one thing that I tell people (if they ask) that they can relate to is that it NEVER loses its new bike feel. I am so frikkin stoked to ride the chili every single time I get on it. Its just such a fun bike to ride. I went through several bikes before the chili but i can say the chili will not be leaving the stable any time soon, and if it does, it will probably be to buy another knolly.

    This is a really interesting and honest post. I can tell you I felt similarly when I bought my first Endo. The bike takes some time to dial in, and I have always claimed that riding a Knolly is a very different experience than any other bike. It requires commitment, and an aggressive riding style. Once you figure out how to ride the bike (elbows out, chest down, centered and aggressive), you will very quickly realize what Knollys offer. They will shred, rip , and corner like nothing I have been on. When I let people ride my Chili, they look at the rear triangle and think "flexy". They are always blown away by the stiffness, and the just how well the bike tracks. Not to mention just how much fun it is.

    I have a fairly good guess that I know what's coming, but I will patiently wait for pics.

    Yeah, it's not really a surprise. But, I am already planning the photo shoot.

    I hadn't really thought it that way tiSS'er but thats the honest-to-goodness truth. If you have a more aggressive riding style you will notice this bike shine where some other AM bikes do not.

    I am not the biggest hucker or the best rider but I ride pretty aggressively and this bike gives me the biggest darn smile when plowing through a rock garden at high speed, going down steep techy sections, hitting jumps, etc. Uphill is great too. Stable up tech, pretty efficient on long slogs. For me, the fun factor is what sold me on the bike.

    Back on topic, who got some more cool stuff for their Knolly?

    Cool. Makes me even more excited. Im definitely not an under aggresive rider as I like to go fast and I like to get all the tech rocky stuff. Not the best climber but who cares, I dont mind walking my bike up. Im currently ridding a Nomad and I think the two bikes are similar in characteristics and am so stoked to add the knolly to the stable.

    My Christmas Knolly won't be delivered until march but I'm still as giddy as when I received my first Schwinn sting ray when I was eight.

    It is funny - Christmas is the one time of the year that I don't get too much bike stuff (besides a bunch of shot blocks in the stocking). The rest of the year I am my own Santa! Not a bad year - new Podium and new Endorphin.
