    Hey dudes!

    I am booked.

    SEA - PHX on Tuesday Alaska 646 night landing at 6:35pm
    PHX - SEA on Sunday Alaska 633 leaving at 5:25pm

    Time for one more ride on Sunday!!

    Probably rent a car unless there are any better ideas or options. I am booked at the Marriot in Precott for Tue night

    I will likely ship the bike to a shop in Prescott with bikeflights.com and then ship it home from Sedona.

    I'll work with the Emerald Aisle attendant to get the biggest car they have under my plan, so we can fit 4. Shouldn't be a problem. Worse case, we end up in a midsize pickup, and two people have to squeeze in the back seat.

    If I have to upgrade to a full-size pickup, we'll need to discuss what that looks like at the time, since the rates vary widely. Sometimes, they just give you bigger cars without a care, under the contract price, but only when it's busy, and they are short on non-executive level cars. I'll also ask for a "hook up", see if they are feeling benevolent. Sometimes they are, sometimes they aren't.

    Where are you going to stay on Tuesday night? You might want to just grab a hotel near the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, do a SoMo lap in Phoenix Wednesday morning then meet us up in Prescott for the Dells ride that afternoon. Or just hook up with Jason and Ralph Wednesday morning and ride up with them if you want to share vehicles. It looks like you don't fly out until Sunday night so you may want to get your own vehicle.

    Edit: Just noticed you are shipping your bike to Prescott. That works too. Shipping to Phoenix probably won't work because shops won't open before 9:00 or 10:00 next morning.

    Heck, you guys all might want to get in a SoMo lap in Phoenix Wednesday morning before heading up to Prescott.... unless it'll be too much hassle (or not enough room in the vehicle) to unbox and assemble all your bikes in Phoenix. I won't be getting to Prescott for the Dells ride before noon. More like 1:00 or 2:00 probably.

    This is going to be soooo fun. Maybe if you're out of shape from too much snow and no riding, we can keep you in sight.

    Sounds good. Sleep in. Get the bike built. Take a short ride. Weíll see you around 1:00. Canít wait!

    They just got a foot of snow in Prescott. Hopefully the weather warms up and it melts. The Dells are so cool.

    I'll be there, though only for the weekend, work keeping me down other wise, and plans ended up lining up for me to stay in AZ. No accommodations needed, I've got my own sorted. Is there a communication channel to stay in touch on specifics besides this thread? Pretty pumped!

    Geeze, I hope I my arse can take 4 days of riding. I've had 2 days on my bike since January 1st? I need the snow to melt already! I've had to resort to running, to keep the cardio up.

    The Dells will wake up your legs. It's like Gooseberry Mesa except the repeated climbs are steeper and taller. 10 miles feels like 30, ha ha. We're trying to soften you up so we can keep up, Jason.

    Ok if my counting is accurate, it looks like there's 11 people definitely staying at the house. Nine of you are in for the full four days and two for at least part of the four.

    The total right now is $2200 for the four days including cleaning fee, taxes, and booking costs. The price may go up if I tell him we have 11. I think the reservation is for 8. Not sure, but it seems like when I played around with the numbers when I was booking it, the price changed based on the number who would be there. So let's figure around $2500 total. So $227 per person. Sorry I can't prorate it for those staying less than the full time. The price is the same for me. Even if you only stay 2 days though, it's still cheaper than most hotels ($113.50 per night).

    Do we want to do any group dinners or breakfasts at the house like we did at Hurricane? We can do that if everyone's willing to chip in.That's a little tougher for me because: a) it's not my house and I don't know what's all there as far as cooking supplies and pots/pans etc; b) There's quite a few more people so it gets a little more involved; c) everyone has different dietary needs/wants. I'm willing to do that again if you want, but if you'd rather just fend for yourselves that's cool too. If the price doesn't go up for having more than the booked number of people, we could take that extra and buy some basics, like fruit, milk, bacon, oatmeal, eggs, coffee, drinks, etc.... or maybe put it towards a meal out together one night. Just some thoughts.

    Adult beverages: Bring what you'd like to drink. I don't drink so would be clueless as to what to buy.

    Rides: Plan on two rides a day. Feel free to join (or not join) depending on how frisky you're feeling or how technical the ride is. These are not supported or sponsored rides. Knolly has no direct involvement with the gathering. We're just a group of like minded friends getting together to enjoy riding (mostly) Knolly bikes on cool trails. You are on your own as far as mechanicals and carrying what food and water and supplies you will need for a 2-4 hour ride. Of course we will try and stay together and not drop anyone and will try our best to help with repairs (or injuries), but come ready to be self supported.

    Ideas for rides: These are on my MUST DO list: Granite Dells, Hangover, Hogs, Highline. We can fill in around those as desired. Suggestions? I still have Ledge-And-Airy on my to do list. Plus I've never done the stuff West of the Airport (Ram's Head, Old Post, Sketch, Carol Canyon). .. The new Thunder Mountain reroute might be worth a look. I would also like to do Transcept and Turkey Creek.

    Thanks Kent!

    I think you have done enough by arranging the house - so I dont think you need to go shopping and look after us.

    I think we should wing it day by day...if any of us feels like stopping at a grocery store before / after a ride and grabbing some fixings for lunch / dinner - then lets just do that. We can submit the receipt to you for the final split = or start a seperate kitty. That works really well if everyone takes turns.

    I agree it would be rad to have coffee and sandwhich / lunch ingredients at the very least and even eggs / bacon / toast / oatmeal as a second level of luxury...So I would volunteer to stop in and get that stuff.

    Have you heard of https://www.kittysplit.com/en/ - works really well to split expenses and allows everyone to login and submit an invoice.

    That sounds good. I like the kittysplit idea too. Does that work for restaurants too? Although I guess most restaurants have those bill splitting handheld devices now.

    I've got a credit card bill coming due next week and the second half of the Airbnb payment coming up in two weeks, so I'll text or email by paypal and/or Venmo to everyone here soon.

    Thanks guys. This is going to be super fun.

    PS: Glad we didn't do it this weekend. Still snow on the ground and lots of mud from what I hear. Should be good to go my the end of March. If not we'll just uproot the whole party and head to Phoenix/Tucson.

    Ja dude - Kittysplitter you can use for anything...each payment can be divided only amongst those who partake..e.g. the house can be split between all 12 dudes...if 5 of us go for dinner you can split the dinner between those 5 and it adjusts accordingly...I can give Jason money and it will adjust how much we each owe you etc..

    Pretty cool.

    Hi everyone. Super stoked meeting and riding with everyone! Wondering what tires would one recommend in Sedona? I typically run Minions but tires are more geared for wet loam etc. Thanks in advance!

    I would ride anything with side knobs that don't tear. My Schwalbe were terrible last year, but they improved their manufacturing processes and materials, so they are far more durable now. Sedona will be the true test though. Magic Mary and Hans Damph is what I'm running, but that's what I always run everywhere.

    I'm not sure how much traction you'll get with one of these.

    Traction is a function of vertical force on the riding surface...no?

    That looks amazing!

    Stan: DHF front/Agressor back with the DD compound would work great. If you're already running DHF/DHR or DHF/DHF and there's still good tread remaining that would be great too. If you're running the super tacky/soft compound the red rock will finish it off, but it will work great.

    Ok t-minus two weeks!! Time to start thinking about rides. Hereís a tentative ride schedule:

    Schedule so far is pretty flexible except weíre definitely doing Granite Dells in Prescott with a couple locals on
    the afternoon of Wednesday the 27th. One routed/built most all the trails out there and the other has ridden them probably more than anyone except the builder. Should be a special tour.

    Thursday Friday Saturday might look something like this:

    Thurs: Munds to Hangover lollipop AM; Broken Arrow/Hogs with some Chicken Point/Submarine Rock sessioning (White Line ?!?). Maybe drop Little Horse and loop back through the neighborhood to finish PM.

    Friday: Carol Canyon Loop. Probably a double loop starting at Skywalker to Ridge that hits pretty much everything out there. Should be able to ride right from the house. AM;
    Classic Hiline (Slim Shady/Made in the Shade HL Baldwin Buddha Beach Templeton) PM

    Saturday: Dry Creek Area loop from the house for a warm up (probably SBs suggestion) AM; Hiline /Transcept /Turkey Creek PM

    Doable? Iím kind of a slave driver when Iím leading a gathering. I figure folks can pick and choose if theyíre not up for the two-a-days or arenít up for the more tech, high-risk rides and you can always rest when you get back to work, right?

    Iím heading home Sunday morning but I know thereís at least couple guys whoíll still be looking to get a ride in before they head back to Phoenix to catch late flights.

    I wouldn't harsh your mellow with a non-Knolly bike, but if anyone ends up down in Phx and wants to ride South Mountain, hit me up.

    Thanks! Like I said, there are a few guys that are flying out of Phoenix Sunday evening that might take you up on that offer. Or if the weather is crap up in Sedona we may uproot the whole party and end up down there, Ha ha.

    No worries about the non-knolly bike (trying to remember what you're riding now but seems like you were pretty happy with it from something you said), we'll have a few non-knolly bikes with us on most every ride (old friends, previous knolly customers, etc), but yeah, mostly knolly.

    Hey there fellow Knolly riders (and friends),
    I caught wind of this gathering and I would love to be a part of it! I live in Flagstaff (north of Sedona ~1 hour) and would be honored to tag along with you all at the end of this month. For what its worth, I am a bike mechanic and can help with any mechanical issues before, during or after the rides. Please let me know how I can help out to make this a memorable and rad time filled with all things bikes/Knolly!

    I see a lot of green, spikey things, boarding the trails in that video. I think I'll put some extra Stan's in my tires, in case I stray off trail and end up taking the "pro" line, or the path of most resistance.

    Yeah, the local flora is not your friend. Bring a comb.

    Just got back from Shredona for 8 days...house was awesome with all the stuff for cooking in it and then some! Right near Hogs.. your house will prob have everything you need to cook. There was 4 of us and the Fugitive lit everything up for all those days except one rest day...it rained. Half Slack mode and steep mode...both were awesome! I got the LeMans blue and compliments on that beast were plenty throughout the week! West Sedona was good too...Mescal was ok...re-route from Canyon of Fools was flowyyyyy and over near tea cup was PreMO! Grand Central was fast and long!! I saw where Nate Hills, Lars, Kyle Mears, and Jeff went down off Hangover..(Wow...nope..didn't do that) and where he lost his bike...which is opposite of cow pies to the right of the dirt road looking up..No WAY doing that!

    Great trip..no dust..railed lines.

    Sweet. Thanks for the update. The Fugitive is an incredible bike. Sounds just about perfect for Sedona. Looks like they're going to get a little more rain this Wednesday/Thursday. Haven't seen the long range for next week. Fingers crossed.

    Prescott only got a little precip from the above referenced storm system. Trails should be mostly good to go at this time. Constellation trails werelast evening!

    Seems like every joint, contact point,pivot, bushing and bearing on the Endo are (literally) screaming for attention after this winter. Wish I could say I got to all of them.

    New tires mounted. New rim decals, dropped the fork lowers and relubed and changed travel. Not sure if Iím going to like 160mm up front. Felt a little wonky/out of balance on my neighborhood test spin. Headset inspected and lubed.

    The BB, hubs, rear shock and dropper post could use some maintenance and lube. Weíll see what I get to tomorrow night. You guys might just have to put up with some squawking.

    I had to put in a new dropper (Reverb). Turns out, the hydraulic lines don't play nice with the internal routing since they are too thick for the lower port, so it's exterior until I get my LEV overhauled.

    T- minus TOMORROW!

    I'm taking off tonight and going half way so I'm going to switch to text for all further Knollyfest communications. I think the meet time tomorrow in Prescott is 1:00 pm. I'll text you the location as soon as I know.

    Can't wait!

    Well, they do, you just have to get the dremel and rat tail file after those holes. Same for the rear brake hose.

    I know, but I don't like Reverbs (hate the thumb controller), so I don't want to widen the hole for it, because when I get my Lev back, the cable already fits perfectly, with very little play.

    Here's another version. There's 3 riders in this picture, with Dave just rounding the edge at the farthest point, under the tree. This was probably my favorite trail, aside from a short downhill section on Highline. What this picture doesn't show, is the 180 degree, spectacular view of the Sedona skyline, and the height of this trail over the valley below. Such a cool place.

    SW Knollyfest 2019-mutton.jpg

    It's hard to catch Dave in a picture, cause he's always moving too fast!

    For those of you itching for some updates on how KnollyFest was, I put together a quick video of one of our rides. This is us riding Skywalker and Ridge trails in Sedona. I'll have another coming next week on Transcend.
