Knolly Chilcotin v banshee spitfire
The end of my eBay auction is growing close for my knolly Chilcotin. I’m starting to have doubts on whether I should still sell and buy a 650b banshee spitfire. If I keep the Chilcotin I’ll probably put a cane creek air on it and keep at 26 inch wheels for ever. I need the Singletrack massives advice on this one. To help me confirm either way.
The Chilcotin has never been built as it was a replacement (out of warranty deal) for an endorphin.
So guys help me decide

The Chilco is an awesome bike. I’ve seen the eBay ad and your ponderings on here. I have a first gen endorphin which is ace (and has been for years!) around the peak and the odd up lift day. The frame is heavier than your Chilco frame.. I’d say its not too much bike if you’re riding proper tech trails and odd uplifts etc. Despite advice to the contrary no doubt on mtbr, I’d be tempted to build it a little lighter than most builds on there.
Scratching your itch will cost a lot more than the actual benefits of riding a warden/any other latest and greatest 650b. You have an awesome frame there! Unless of course you can afford a wholesale change, then I say be quick and order up a warden!Posted 3 years ago
Thanks beagle that’s what I needed. I’ll go with a cc air with pedal lock. I’ve got a lyric uturn at the mo then the std saint brakes, xt cranks, xtr rear mech, xt shifters and Chris king hubs and 819 rims. Thanks for the confirmation just needed that push. It’s much appreciated.

Definitely keep the chilcotin. I’ve got one with a ccdba and wouldn’t swap it for anything, built up with 55rc3 ti’s it weighs 31.4lbs and pedals fine but still handles the downhill, jumps etc as well as my old delirium it replaced.
Its my third knolly now and can’t really see me moving to another brand anytime soonPosted 3 years ago
