First Look: Knolly Warden - Eurobike 2013
Finally got to ride the Warden today in Whistler. Really enjoyed the bike, pedaled beautifully, solid on the downhillish(blue trail) i was on, felt so firm in a very nice way, i am an advanced rider but this bike boosted confidence when i started to push things. That being said i don't have any negative comments about the 650b(my first try at this wheel size) but i found i was having troubles on the downhill tight tech corners. I was overshooting the corners. Rider error for sure but definitely, for me, a different ride from the 26 wheel size. I deliberately rode over the obstacles on the trail to see the difference in the two wheel sizes. It did roll over the objects easier than my 26 experience on the same trail, but i found it noticeably more challenging to pick a good line through techy areas. With time in the saddle i believe this could be overcome, but initial thought was this wheel size was a bit awkward in the techy stuff. Hope that i was some help to those in the market for a different/new bike. cheers.

Video: Ride Whistler Like A Local
I am a professional trailbuilder. I buff trails all the time. I am baffled by the fairly constant complaint about "buffed, smooth, etc., etc." trails which is in complete opposition to many of the same riders insisting on riding bigger wheel sizes for easier riding, better brakes for easier riding, better suspension for easier riding, carbon fibre for easier riding and the list can go on for awhile. I personally love the technology available on bikes today, which i feel enhances the experience on any given trail. But back to the buffing. If buffing is wrong, then why for example, do trails of every level of difficulty have the same problem associated with many rocks and roots. The trail widens to varying degrees, every time there is an "obstacle". When i see these sections i see a problem that needs to be dealt with, ie., buffed! I simply remove the offending rock or root, or sometimes a hole that has gone from a mild challenge to simple trail degradation. My intention is always the same in this regard, how do i keep the single track a single track? If the rock or root is part of the original feature of the trail then it stays, and if the object is just a byproduct of wear and tear on a well used trail and just adds to widening(in this example) of the trail then it is no longer adding to the trail but taking away from it. Certainly in the end i will agree my opinions on this subject are just that, my opinions. Cheers.
