Yes, I was a Knolly ambassador. I had to put that title aside for a while as I get to know my Intense Tracer. However this review of the Endorphin sums up Knollys really well. Incredible bikes that do so many things well by an incredible company that holds steadfastly to some key MtB values - durability, performance and fun designed by and for riders. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/knolly-endorphin-review-2016.html They are not fast fire-road climbers, so they are not very popular here in SoCal. They climb (and descend) chunk incredibly well, thus their popularity in Canada and SoMo Phoenix.
