Knolly is a Canadian mountain bike brand with deep roots in the B.C. mountain bike community. Now the Vancouver-based company is giving back to that community through its limited edition of Builder series bikes.
The Builder program is kicking off this December with a limited run of 20 Fugitive frames. Proceeds from this first run will go towards supporting TORCA (Tri-Cities Offroad Cycling Association), a local trail association. Custom Builder graphics for this first series of frames will reflect the work TORCA does, showcasing the topography of Burke Mountain and a Builder logo on the seat tube.
Knolly’s Builder program started in 2015, when the company created the program to acknowledge the “hard work, inspiration and collaboration builders put in every day of the year.” With an expanding product line, including the new Fugitive and 2020 Warden, Knolly is ramping up its Builder program as well.

Knolly already has plans to continue the Builder series with new frames and new locations. In Spring 2020, a run of new Warden frames will feature Mount Seymour. Proceeds from the limited run of Wardens will benefit the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA).
“For us, it’s a chance to give back and connect with the trail communities that are so vital to the sport we love,” Knolly stated in a press release announcing the program’s expansion. “Our builders create outdoor playgrounds that we depend on; this program enables us to show our gratitude.”
“For riders, this is an opportunity to own one of only 20 frames and celebrate not only the legendary trail builders but your favourite mountain and trails as well.”
