Lightly ridden medium (with a 475mm reach) 2020 Knolly Warden that I purchased in June of 2020 (this bike has only 5 months on it). At the begining of September I turned it into a Mullet shredder (front wheel and 2021 Fox Factory 36 only has two months of riding (approx 8 rides) on it.) Stock bike is sold with 160mm 27.5" fork and wheel. I specc'd a 170mm 27.5 fork and wheel... then sold the original 170mm Fox 36 and bought a 29" 160mm 2021 Fox Factory 36, 29' wheel and new 29" Maxxis Assegai.

Wondering how a Warden Mullet rides? Read this: https://www.knollybikes.com/post/mullet-setups-not-just-a-hairstyle 

The Warden has adjustable geometry (slack and neutral), with the 160mm 29" fork, you basically have the same geometry in the neutral setting as the bike did with the 27.5" set-up in the slack setting. The bike rides amazingly well... the front 29" wheel plows and rolls over anything keeping momentum while the 27.5 out back keeps the bike fun, flickable and allows you to get up to speed quickly. 

It's a medium sized frame, but the reach is 475mm. 

I also still have the spare 27.5 front wheel (you just need a tire), if you'd like to convert it back to a full 27.5 bike.

This bike also has Tannus Tubeless Armour inserts installed that will come with the bike. https://tannusamerica.com/pages/tannus-armour-tubeless Review: https://nsmb.com/articles/tannus-armour-tubeless-inserts-tested/

This bike has lots of custom parts (including a OneUp cockpit and dropper) and has been Ride Wrapped with a full custom frame and fork wrap from day one, with zero scratches or marks... The fork & front wheel/tire only have about 8 rides on them and are basically brand new. This bike has been meticulously maintained and cared for... never left to sit dirty and constantly loved, cared for and showered with positive words and thoughts. I celebrated each monthly anniversary with an appropriate card and chocolates... happy bike = happy life! Specs are below... feel free to give me a call and chat about the bike... I love talking about it! This bike looks, feels and rides like a new bike.
