 Just saw one built up yesterday at a shop, looks the shit. Big capable bike, pretty short cockpit tho for a size Med fyi
  • 1 0
 Maybe the short cockpit is an illusion? I was comparing the geo from this bike to the Kona process 153 which is supposed to have a longer than average top tube (to account for short chain stays.) The Process has a TT length listed as 604mm, and the Warden's TT is listed as 601mm in size med which doesn't seem overly short. Granted a real life experience on the bike would obviously be a better indication than just numbers on a website..

 Mount Burke, it's an amazing place. Sucks that some of the trails will be taken down due to the development of houses... Living belongs in the city, not in the mountains.
  • 4 1
 Agreed , but look on the bright side , there is always the rest of the mountain and the higher up known & unknown trails that they can't develop because of the park boundaries.

 Totally disagree! I had to live in a city when I went to university and I never want to live in a city again. People need to live in the country, and on mountains, and in valley meadows, near rivers and creeks and down by the sea. It is perfectly possible to have amazing trails and people living near them too!

 "Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up, as did men of another age, to the challenge of nature. Modern man lives in a highly synthetic kind of existence. He specializes in this and that. Rarely does he test all his powers or find himself whole. But in the hills and on the water the character of a man comes out."

 Love it! I moved just from Whistler(almost-city) to North Van(too much of a city, yet not-so much for the average city-man), and man I wanna get closer to the woods even though I'm a mere kilometer or two from Fromme..gotta get myself a cave. With internet though, just to keep doing my nerd job to buy bikes!

 Ha, it's funny that out of all videos I decided to look up where this was when you wrote it was Mt. Burke. Turns out we stopped a night at the side of the road in our motorhome whilst being uber british tourists going across the west coast of Canada for a few weeks last summer, we were too tight to pay for a place at a proper motorhome site so just drove up some random roads looking for a spot to stop. Found a sweet spot into the entrance of a construction site of (probably what you are talking about) some new houses for the night. I spotted a few sweet looking trails winding off through the woods too and a few DH guys up. During the night quite a few folk seemed to be up and down the road stopping in the next layby to us, was wondering what was going on and we decided either drug dealing or couples coming up for a quickie in a secluded spot... Yeah I know, 'Cool story bro!'

 Actually the province has sold off most of the park to developers to balance the books. Auction was February 4th I believe. www.tricitynews.com/news/240618611.html?mobile=true
  • 2 2
 @jeffsworks . That's not even close to "most" of the park , not even close. The property they auctioned off has always been the citys property and is part of "Burke Mountain" and not "Pinecone Provincial Park". All those property lines are as close to the park line as they can get , from there on up they can never and will never be able to develop on a Provincial Park. This will effect mabey 25% of the trails and still leaves the rest of the mountain.

 jeffworks. Your link shows Burke mountain crown land being sold. NOT park land! This has been established for decades that this land will be developed. Then you cry like it is new news. NONE of Burke Pinecone park is being sold or developed. The huge variety of trails in the Park boundary are safe and a blast to ride on a all mountain bike. Be prepared for a long climb. No shuttling on this mountain.

 Knolly puts out some of the best promo vids, imho. Nice clean formula: great trails, great riding, and great bikes.
  • 3 2
 Great riding, sick trail, no doubt about that. But in a promo video I'd expect a minimum of information.

 Now if they could only get their customer service in order....
  • 3 0
 I have never heard of problems with Knolly CS, although they make solid bikes and the customers rarely have to get in contact with them. My only contact was due to me screwing up an axle and I was taken care of quickly!
  • 2 0
 I have owned two Knolly bikes and if I ever have a problem they fix it ASAP! Don't know if people are using the same CS as me but I have been treated well for years now.

 Weight on a large Warden frame with a Cane Creek DBAir is 7.25lbs. Cheers!

 That sounds more like it. Torn between a Chilcotin and a Warden.

 I have a Chilcotin @ -=30lbs. It has carbon wheels/seat post, XTR, and a Fox CTD shock + Talas forks. I change it from steep mode to slack mode all the time (66/67 HTA (same as Warden)... Its funny because I rather be on my knolly Podium any day on anything but an XC trail and that is -=38lbs. It is fun, fast, and stable.

 9.25 lbs at local NV bike shop... just saying.

 No... weigh one yourself and get back to me.

 Jaydawg69. How can my medium podium frame with DBA weigh 9.5lbs then? Maybe your scale is broken... just saying.
  • 2 0
 www.sicklines.com/reviews/knolly-podium/review-knolly-podium shows the Podium weighing in at 10.9 lbs with a Ti Spring. I think your scale is broken.

 XC/Trail bikes aren't what they used to be Big Grin

 I'm jealous. My 26" wheels couldn't do any of that trail.
  • 29 6
 Stop. This joke is done. Ride what you like. Let the Pinkbike hate begin.. I'm just tired of seeing comments about wheel size on every article released.
  • 11 2
 Thank you, tlilly. We know the advantages and disadvantages of each at this point. Pick one, ride it, and let live.
  • 7 5
 jeez guys, you sure do take a joke seriously, just relax and forget it.
  • 15 2
 Pick a wheel size, and be a dick about it.

 It's a sick bike from a sick company. It's just fun to trololol you guys a bit. If you were really on your A-game, you would have had replies like: "It's not the wheelsize, radarr, it's because you're a hack on a bike" or "even 36" wheels couldn't help radarr roll over things."

 Obviously it's a joke. Jokes die after repeated use. This joke is dead, for a few of us anyway.

 Wow, he was hauling a$$. Love this style, fast clean riding, no pointless wheelies or whipping into bushes.

 It actually has one of the longer wheel bases and top tubes on the 27.5 market! I am 6-2 and the large Warden I demoed was dialed with plenty of reach/room in the cockpit. Camera tricks and the fact that he is a big ass dude is all.

 What a relief! At first glance I thought this vid was guna be about cops busting mtn bikers on the trail.

 This is one of those videos you can show to your non riding friends when they ask things like "Why do you get up at stupid o'clock on a Sunday and drive into the woods?". The simple answer is.....because it's FUN!

 Can't see gettin rid of a perfectly amazing chili for a warden.

 I heard carbon is healthy for stomach, or a glass of coke for digestion.

 Is it just me, or does that bike look waaaaaay too small for him?
  • 2 0
 Frame size can often depend what kind of a background / history you have. A lot of us who started out on BMX's back in the 80's prefer the feeling of a slightly smaller frame underneath us.
