    Canfield One Test

    This is just a little teaser. I went for a ride yesterday with Chris Canfield. He brought two Canfield Ones for us to ride. In case you don't know, that's Canfield Bro's 7 or 8-inch "trail" bike. I'm not looking to replace my Bionicon Golden Willow. But I do want a new DH bike and I think the One fits the way I ride. I'll post more of a review later. Stay tuned...

    Definitely. The Talas 36 I got to ride had the ride height adjustment broken and I had on a 20 lb backpack. So I wasn't climbing so well. But when I sat and pedaled, the rear didn't move at all. If I stood up I could see it moving, although I couldn't feel it at all. With a height-adjustable fork (that works) and a normal amount of gear, I have no doubt it will climb great.

    Yup, that's Chris. The fork isn't anything fancy. It's a Rock Shox Domain. He says he likes it and they don't cost much. They're heavy, though. And if you wanna be just like Chris, I've got a brand new Domain I'll be happy to sell you (seriously - still in the box).

    I'm not ready to say much more about the bike. Gotta ride one with a fork and shock that aren't beat to hell. But I do like it and I'm exloring my suspension options. I'm leaning towards all Marzocchi air. And I might even try an X-Fusion rear air shock. I love the X-Fusion rear on my Bionicon.

    The Vivid 5.1

    and Van 36 RC2 is a very nice combo on that bike. One of these days I'll get around to posting pictures and a review. I do agree that the cockpit is a little short for all around riding. But I have a long torso.
