 I'm not bragging when I say that this is the best downhill bike I've ever ridden.
Pros: Long seat tube really helps compared to most bikes.
When others are pedaling hard to clear a jump, the Knolly podium just floats over it like no ones business.
Carries speed very well.
The suspension design is clean and effective when riding.
A fast, fluid ride that can be ridden extremely well in all aspects of downhill racing and riding.
Cons: The large frame seems like a medium.

 This generation of podium has structural issues. I broke a weld on the chainstays twice. After the second time, I also noticed that the mainframe was cracked all around between the top and down tube. It was also cracked around the gusset that runs from the head tube to the bottom face of the down tube. The frame was ridden hard for 2.5 years. I understand the challenges of manufacturing, so I am not writing this to bash the company. I would just recommend that if you are looking for a used Podium, buy the current generation. The structural issues have been addressed and the new frame rides even better than the previous generation (I was able to get one at crash replacement pricing).

 Love this bike to death. Super smooth on the downhills, easy to get off the ground when you wanna do some freeride. All around great bike, definitely recommend. The support at Knolly is awesome on top of it all off.

Knolly 2011 Podium (MSRP $0) — he Podium is purebred racing performance: an aggressive BB height, a 64 degree head angle and one of the most acclaimed suspension systems on the market lead to a high performance bike that's fast, stable and predictable in every situation. This bike is fast – and we mean really fast – yet it's still super nimble in the tight technical sections. The Podium is designed to balance the needs of a light weight racing bike while still providing the lateral rigidity to hold the tightest lines through corners.
