Remember Morgan’s review of the Titanium Knolly Cache? It dropped here on the Radavist just a few months after the Knolly Cache steel was announced. That was back in August of last year. Knolly finally announced they have stock of the Steel Cache, including two build kits and a frameset. You can buy the Steel Cache with a GRX 810 group for $3788, or a GRX 600 for $2899, and the frameset for $1250. Head on over to Knolly to see the component breakdown for each build kit and check out Morgan’s review of the Titanium Cache for a refresh on how capable this bike is.
Are you ready for the next paradigm shift in drop bar bikes? In news that will come with little to zero surprise, this same shift began in the mountain bike world nearly a decade ago. It took a while for people to jump on the bandwagon, but once they were on, the entire industry figured it out. Now it’s drop bar’s turn. Here we go with the titanium Knolly Cache.
Building off this year’s launch of the Cache titanium all-road bike, Knolly has just announced a steel version for 2020. The steel Cache maintains the geometry of the titanium Cache, as well as many of the frame details.
ED coating has been added to ensure the lifespan of the bike, as well as a few pricepoint tiers: frame only for $999, frameset for $1399. While there are no details yet of the Cache steel coming as a complete, we can expect it’ll be an option in the future. See more information at Knolly.

Can we all agree that Mountain Bikes are just so damn good these days? Anyone who started out dropping chains on a triple ring rigid MTB back in the day will appreciate how lucky we all are now: brakes stop fast (whether or not your wheels are true); droppers drop; giant cogs for chilling; tubeless tires! Those parts all have to hang on something though, and here’s where we’ve seen leaps and bounds in design in the last five years toward lower, slacker, and longer bikes with short stems, big wheels, and unique suspension designs.
There’s a new all-road in town, from our Canadian friends at Knolly. The Cache is a 700c or 650b titanium drop bar bike that can take on anything you’re willing to throw at it. Knolly wrote a great development story at their site, showcasing the Cache and its abilities, so head on over and check that out.
