Long legged riders rejoice. This is the bike you've been waiting for (unless you want a 29r). Do you like a bike that descends with impunity AND lays down more climbing traction than your legs can handle? Check. Do thoughts of unparalleled engineering mastery coupled with the best carbon construction in the industry make you tingle? Check. Does the beauty of fresh mud splatter on raw carbon give you feelings of rapture. Of course it does. Seriously though friends...coming from a Santa Cruz Nomad, I thought nothing could have been better than that. Then I rode this bike and it blew me away. I like to descend of course, but I also have a fascination with techy challenging climbs, the kind you maybe clean 1 out of every 10 rides. The Four by 4 suspension design up'd that ratio greatly! It simply responds to terrain without slowing down or loosing traction when hammering up or down chunder. Some Warden reading: https://nsmb.com/articles/knolly-warden-alloy-vs-carbon/ https://nsmb.com/articles/knolly-founder-noel-buckley-interview/ https://www.knollybikes.com/suspension In terms of condition, I would consider it excellent! Obviously I'm biased. Couple of points: 1. I'm a Dad now, and as such, in the two years since I've owned this bike I've ridden exactly 1% of the time that I've actually wanted to. The magic of Strava could actually tell me the sad number of hours I spent on this bike, but I'm afraid to look. 2. Frame is virtually devoid of scratches. The exception is the seatstay yolk where I'm assuming gravel has been pulled through with the tire and scraped/chipped parts of it. 3. Down tube has protective film in the form of custom decals. I loved the stealth look of the bike, but wanted to add some colour so there is a big protective sticker on the downtube. I've got another set that you can have to replace it once it gets thrashed. 4. Many parts are NEW! and/or recently rebuilt. I'd consider Selling the frame only as well. Parts: - Rear shock: Cane Creek Double barrel with climb switch. Just rebuilt by the good folks at Cane Creek and feeling buttery smooth for you. - Fork: Fox Factory 36 - Wheelset: Raceface Turbine with Vault hub. I love high engagement hubs and I know you will too. Initial runs of the rear hub had an adhesive issue - So this ones been replaced making the rear hub only one year old (see item 1 above). Review here: http://theloamwolf.com/2017/04/15/review-raceface-turbine-r-wheelset/ - I love the above wheelset quite a bit, so if you have a preference for Easton Heist wheels, I can provide them instead for $400 off the total price. - Cranks: Raceface Turbine Cinch BRAND NEW - Chainring: 26 tooth Raceface narrow wide. I have a large assortment of ring sizes so if 26 insults your manhood then I can set you up with one that brings your power stroke (it might not be orange though....) - Cassette: SRAM 11 spd 11-48? Don't remember... I have to check.... - Seatpost: Raceface turbine R (same as Fox transfer) - I got this post last summer...approx 20 rides and working beautifully. - Brakes: SLX front and back - just bled - Shifters: SRAM X1 - Derailleur: SRAM X1 - MSP bashguard - Handle bar: BRAND NEW raceface Next R - Stem: BRAND NEW raceface turbine 35mm - Grips BRAND NEW chromag Basis - Saddle BRAND NEW chromag Lynx DT - Front Tire: Magic Mary at 70% left - Rear Tire: Hans Dampf that is nearly dead I have a High Roller and Minion DHF that are both at about 70% that I can mount for you if preferred. Specs and dims from Knolly website are here: +Rear Travel: 155mm or 6.1" +Wheel Size & Max Width: 27.5" x 2.5" +Dropout/Hub Spec: 142 x 12mm axle.

BRAND NEW, in the box RaceFace Turbine dropper post! I had ordered this to replace a Reverb on a newly ordered bike....but the spec got switched to this raceface post leaving me with two. Good opportunity for you! There's been some reviews suggesting this post is a bit finicky, however I've been using mine for nearly a year and it's operated perfectly once I setup the lever tension correctly. It's important to make sure there is a little bit of slack cable...then you'll be trouble free. It fits 30.9mm diameter and is 440mm long. The drop is 150mm. Optional 1X lever upgrade for an additional $40 - Blue anodized. The lever is positioned under the bar where a front shifter would normally be, giving you much more secure access.

Nice shorts, pretty light fabric. Stretchy. Gusseted crotch. 4 Pockets. I'm sad that these are too small for me. Waist is good at 34" but the legs are too narrow for me (26" thigh diam measured half way)...but maybe good for you! I have two Pairs, both Large. Green (Hunter), and Navy $85 each, or $160 for both! Can meet in Port Moody or Downtown Vancouver.

Never been ridden! Colour rejected by my wife (I thought it looked great). Green Raceface alloy crank boots also included if you want them. I can meet in Port Moody or Downtown Vancouver.
