    Pivot Firebird and Knolly Endorphin Must Sell 1 of them

    I have had my 2011 Knolly Endorphin for 2 years and absolutely love it. I just recently bought a 2011 Pivot Firebird to try and see if I like it better. I will take the components off the bike I sell and keep them on whichever bike I decide to keep. Both have Fox Float. I mostly do 2+ hr all mountain rides with many climbs in New England....no serious downhill. I know this will be a bias thread because its in the Pivot page but what do you think will be the long term better bike for me. Thanks in advance.

    Seems like your in the best position to answer that question. Quit looking for excuses, build that 'bird up and ride! Then get back to us with your answer.

    You can't tell by owning and riding them on your home terrain?

    My advice is to sell both and get a unicycle!

    Cool! Don't forget to tell the Knomers....

    Although I don't know how you could make this choice since there were only three responses here and 17 over on the Knolly forum. . Funny how actual riding versus reading has the answer.

    Enjoy it!

    Unbelievably plush when needed but tight on the climbs. I have confidence over technical terrain that Ive never had before and I can even huck some small stuff and land like it was effortless. I absolutely love this bike.
