Knolly Endorphin Sneak Peek

26er Sea Otter Classic

I believe I just scored an exclusive with this Knolly Endorphin sneak peek. Kevin Waterbury from Knolly showed me what I think he said was a one-off pre-production bike. It has a shocking day-glow yellow paint job that my photos don’t do justice and Knolly’s standard-issue sophisticated linkage with beautiful CNC machined parts. The Endorphin is a 140mm (5.5 inches) trail bike with a 67-degree headtube angle, a 13.4-inch bb height and 6.55-pound frame weight, including the rear axle and Fox CTD air shock. It also has ISCG tabs so you can easily mount a chain guide, cable router for a dropper seat post and a 12×142 rear axle. Last but certainly not least – Knolly says the bike pictured here weighs just 26.02 pounds.
