    Canada? Or do the Canadians outsource everything too?

    I dropped by Knolly HQ the other day and have to say it is a really nice looking frame. The tapered and butted seat tube is a thing of beauty. And those Ti welds. Beautiful full pen that can just be seen on the inside of the headtube junctions.

    A gravel bike isnt for everyone, but those that get one of these will have lots to be proud of.

    Wow I need this. Was looking to replace my
    China carbon gravel frame with something titanium and this came out just in time! Now, the only real question is what fork to get? Anyone compared the Fox AX to the MRP Baxter that’s offered here with the builds? I’ve never considered a suspension fork for a gravel bike before but with my bad shoulders I’m thinking a little extra cushion might be a welcome thing.

    ^^^ change for a nickel?

    Looking at a cache for a bikepacking rig. Anyone found any pics/builds yet? They have one pic on the knolly site with bags, etc.

    Only slight gripe is kind of limited tire options. Wish you could go a hair larger to smooth out the ride.

    Give them a call! The beautiful thing about Knolly is you can call them and get answers to all your questions. Sometimes from the man himself.

    I spoke with the guys at Knolly today and they have received the larger sized frames and shipped the first ones out today.

    I ordered a 58 and I would expect everything larger than that in stock ( unless already sold out).

    Sweet. How's the build quality? Did you get the complete build from them or just the frame?

    I’ll preface this with “this is my first Ti bike and my second Knolly”.

    Welds look amazing - like a roll of quarters. Finish is a scotch-bride pad and looks really nice. If you know anything about Knolly - you know the build quality is excellent. If you don’t know Knolly, the build qualities on their bikes are excellent. The bottom bracket area is really unique, especially at the bridge by the stays. The seat tube is pretty awesome. I like the 1-off headbadge too.

    I ordered the frame. I’ll be building it once the rest of my parts come in. I’ll post photos soon.

    Grats! I'm waiting for the 62cm with GRX kit.. It'll be my third Knolly after first- and second-gen 26" Endorphins.

    Can't wait to see the more pics! How tall are you? I'm 184 cms but 58 cms size seems a big compared to the geometry of my actual 56 cm Specialized Diverge.

    What a beauty! Enjoy

    I’m 6’ -0” with a 31’ or 32” inseam. Knolly said the 58cm will be perfect. The geo matches my daily commuter almost exactly so it should be a good fit.

    With a 70 or 80 mm stem seems a match, true. The stack looks more comfortable, this means less neck pain after step descents and this is so good. It's just what amb looking for.

    Do you know the weight of the frame?

    Thanks,
