    The BB is very low indeed with a 160mm float and zero stack headset.

    How's the fit? I saw on geometry chart that all sizes have 105mm headtube length. Maybe that's because all must have same HA with angleset, but for XL it seems to me too low

    The fit is spot on, but yearh, the headtube is very short, and that explains the stack height ; )

    Build tips

    The One is designed as a low, long and slack DH bike. When you want to run it as a AM bike we suggest a external lower cup on the HT and short cranks to keep the BB up. The frame uses a 222mm (8.75") rear shock I to I where as the older One was able to use both a 8.5" I to I and a 8.75". An 8.5" will make the BB way to low for normal use.

    The HT is a 1.5" so you can run a Cane Creek Angleset. When you steepen the HA, it brings the fork crown back, closer to the frame so with the full 1.5 deg steeper cup, it can be close. They offer a lower cup that is external so if your running it 1.5 deg steeper, it will buy you the space needed to clear the fork crown. Otherwise, the 0.5 and 1 deg should be fine but we still recommend the external cup for BB height.

    We recommend that everyone use some type of chain guide on these frames. If the chain falls inside of the granny ring, it can get caught under the lower link and mess up the ISCG tabs. The MRP XCG is a good one for multi ring setups and any DH type guide will work for a single ring.

    Kinda having a WTF moment...

    Web page indicates 6.5" travel front and rear for an all mountain bike, 7" for Freeride and 8" for downhill. Using either a 2.5 or 2.75 in shock. When you refer to 2.5 or 2.75 you are indicating stroke length of shock? And the new ONE needs an I -to- I of 8.75"?

    So to get the all mountain/freeride I would need an 8.75 I-to-I with a 2.5 inch stroke? And an external bearing cup on the headset?

    And a chainguard?

    That's right. Some shocks are offered in a 8.75" I to I but strokes are different from 2.5, 2.6 and 2.75. The 2.5 stroke will give you the 6.5" travel. The 8.75" I to I is manitory to not have your feet in the ground. We can get the right shock for what you want when you order.
    The external bearing cup on the headset will help you have better pedal clearance. If you are going for DH race low, then a flush lower cup will be fine. We are talking a 1/4" difference at the most but every little bit will get you dialed in better.

    The chainguide is to eliminate the chance of droping your chain under the lower link. Since I built up the first One frame I haven't had an issue with it but I highly recommend using one.

    These are all recomendations to make the bike the best for the riding you want to do with it. I'm happy to talk all this through to help you have a better understanding of what each tweek will do to the ride. Give me a call, 801-548-2556

    Thanks,

    getting things sorted out. I do have a 2011 XL ONE on the way, (Although not quite what I expected. There were/are issues with the orange links....) to replace my '08 Large ONE.

    Way back in Jan. I spoke with one of you, I think it was Chris. We spoke about reusing my current Pushed Vivid 5.1 and which fork I am planning to use (Pushed 36 Van 160mm). He thought that was a good setup for what I intend to do.

    I have been considering adding the MRC XCG to the 08. I'll make sure I get one for the '11. And I was waiting on headsets until the frame arrived to make sure I wouldn't be banging too many rocks and such.

    I did add a set of your Crampons to the 08. Loving them. I had been running clipless since the late 90's.

    V.P., Any ride report or setup changes?

    I have a 170mm lyrik on the way and have a old DHX 5.0 shock in the 2.75 stroke. But wanting to get it down to the 2.5 stroke so It'll be more of a AM bike for me. I got a Cane Creek Angle set and just realized that I ordered the wrong one with the flush bottom cup so my front end is going to be pretty low. How did you setup turn out on you for your first few rides.

    Hey Doodooboi,

    Saw over in DH/FR Jedi thread that the BB is too low with 2.75" stroke shock. Wondering what your bottom stack height is, I think that your Lyric's A2C is 555mm.

    Trying to get a feel for the geo numbers as I'm putting together my build. The geo charts are based on a 565mm A2C with a 16mm stack height, I'm debating a tapered v. 1-1/8" straight steerer.

    Well I have a regular CC Angle set headset bottom cup so I think it's about 2mm thick or even less. It's pretty flush. Now with that setup I am sitting at a 13.5" bb with a 66-66.5 HA. With a 2.75" stroke shock and that low bb, on a full bottom out, the pedals come really, really close to the ground matter a fact I hit the pedals. So with a 2.5 stroke I am hoping for a little less full bottom out, about .5 inches. I really like the Geo on the bike tho. I use to ride a 13.8"-14" bb with a 66 HA and the New One is right around there. Just gotta time the pedaling a bit and all is good. I don't want to put a full 5mm bottom cup cause that would rake out the bike more and I already have full 1.5 degree tuck on the CC angleset. So with the 5mm bottom cup would rake out my bike to a 65.5-66 and that would kill the climbing that I like. It would raise the BB but I think it's not worth it. I'm just going with the shorter stroke shock and call it a day. Bike rails and climbs really really good right where it is and am starting to really love the charateristics of the bike handling.

    Alright I'll bite, Just remeber this is just a review is true to my knowledge and unbais as possible. Oh and this is coming from a 3-4 days straight of riding the bike.
    So first off I would to let you know what I was looking for in a pedal bike like this. I came off of a 08' 575 before my 08' One. And the reason I got rid of the 575 is due to the carbon seat stays. Just didn't cut it here in AZ for me. I broke that thing in about 2 months from having the bike.
    So when the One came out, I figured it would be the bike to have here. So with all this said I looking for a 575 kind of bike that could take bigger hits and climb just like it.

    The new 11' One really hit it on the nail for me so far. Got the Geo that I was looking for execpt maybe a 0.2"-0.5" missing on the bb height. Which I have come to terms and is fine riding it the way it is.

    Pedaling/Climbing. Well with my current set up, this bike has out shine the previous One on the climbing aspect by leaps and bounds. I really dug how my 1st gen One climbed but just never felt smooth or effortless like the 575 that I got off of. Now this One V 2.0 has been really fun to climb. Did lots of pedaling/climbing on the first weekend I had the bike which I spent in Moab. Then when I returned to Phx, I took out to my local trials and man I was very relieve that it wasn't the new bike stoke that kept me from boggin on the climbs cause it climbed things easier than I thought it would.
    It's super smooth and nice to pedal in the granny gear up front. Just sit and spin.
    But if you want to hammer it in the bigger ring and off the seat it just excels out of the gate so well. It almost feels like it has a "Anti-squat" action going on in the bike when you are putting the power down.
    Haven't weighed the bike yet but I believe it's in the sub 35lbs area. I had my previous One in the same weight class and my 575 at the 30lbs mark. The new One climbs like the weight of the 575. So on a 5 star rating for pedaling efficency and climbing I give a 4 starts. Lost of a star due to low BB and what it would take to get it up. And the effort to tuck in the HA of the fork so it would look like a cadillac climbing a hill. (Thank you Cane Creek)

    Descending. This is where the bike really shines the best. It's really a DH rider's pedal bike. Coming off a 08' jedi this 11' One is right up there as to the way it handles the Dh portions of the trail. Having that 135mm x 12mm axle in the rear has really stiffen things up well and just keeps your lines nice and steady. Can't really say anything,more new to as how it rides on the Dh side of things, cause this is where you can tell the bike was really made for. So no let down in this department. Besides having such low BB, once again, has you watching out how hard to land from jumps and drops, and your lines when you want to pedal through the chunk.
    Now this is where the only true con in this portion of my review. Since this bike pedals so well and really well through the chunk it's kinda hard to do when your pedals have a small margin of space to move when in the chunky stuff. So once again, got to fault the bike a little for being too low for my taste. Now with that said the bike can really keep it's speed really well through the chunk that you may not even need to pedal through it cause a little pumping on this bike goes along way. Most bikes, with this much travel, you got to put lots of effort when pumping but not the One. It's very responsive!

    As for jumping and flight time. I only got in a few moments in the air with in those 3-4 days of riding. But it flies and jumps like a Canfield bike. Almost flawless. Very steady in the air and nimble and easy to whip around. Bike holds up well to drops also and no flexing to note

    So this is just my first initial review of the bike for riding it for 3-4 days straight. It may change for the better or worse as I put more miles on her and ride alot more different terrain. Glad to have the oportunity to ride different, new, and old terrain in the those few days of riding in Moab and Phx.

    This is honestly what I felt and it could still be the new bike stoke talking. So take it for what it is a first initial review with only a few days of riding. I'm not saying that this is the end all bikes but it has greatly improved in the areas the 1st gen was lacking.
    My build on this bike is partly old parts that came from the 575 which moved to the 1st gen One now on to the V2. Only thing really new is the CK hubs on DT EX500. I had DT swiss 340's on 5.1d's. Just to give you a more real comparison from bike to bike.

    Sorry so long and hope this helps anyone on the fence.

    Thanks for the review doodoo. Lance told me I'd want the One instead of Jedi for what I'm riding, and you have confirmed it.

    Don't think BB height is going to bother me at all, I'm going with a 180mm tapered fork that will have some stack height. I've been on a 66 HA bike FR bike, and I'm stoked to go little slacker.

    I've been debating selling my trail bike to expedite building the One, and after your review I'm thinking that I can get away with making the One my only bike (except for the DJ, BMX, and road bikes )

    Christmas bike.

    2011 Canfield Bros &quot;THE ONE&quot; info-obione.jpg

    Almost finished. Need to wait for a new shock. With the 160mm fork and the old short shock (8.5" eye to eye), the bottom bracket is a little too low. ~12.5"-12.75". Also in the long travel setting, the tire will bottom out against the seat tube. But it's ready to ride when the proper shock comes in!

    SLX and XT drivetrain and brakes.
    Lyrik 160mm

    Sunline V-One stem
    Hubs King Rear, Hope front
    AtomLab Pimplite rims.
    Blackspire Stinger chain guide with e-type derailleur mount to keep chain from fallin off to the inside.

    Here's what I have...

    ...so far.

    Titanium with Black links, the shock is just a place older for now.



    Da Fork.



    andaaa, the Brakes...



    More to come. Trying not to rely on the CC, so parts are trickling in.

    Beautiful frame! All the fancy colours looks a bit too bling, this has purpose to it.

    Ride Report

    I have gotten a few rides on the 2011 ONE. Mine bulit as a big guy "all mountain" bike. I'll get pictures up soon, probably. Been having too much riding don't really want to stop and take photos.

    Climbing: The 08 climbed great and the 11 still climbs much better than any bike I have had to date. The BB is a little low. And when climbing rocky sections of trail you may need to "ratchet pedal" once in a while. Low speed handling is very nice and predictable. You don't have that feeling of tipping over all of a sudden when you run out of momentum, a little hip thrust and you are over the obstacle.

    Descending: Fast, smooth, holds a line through rough stuff, carves turns very nicely. A friend was following me through a rock garden: I took it at speed, he stopped, he said that the suspension was working and I was rock solid on the bike, no drama. And that is exactly what I felt. What little air I do catch, bike seems to respond well to inflight adjustments.

    Build execution 08 vs 11: The 11 is much better built. The links are more robust. The 11top link is one piece (the 08 was multiple pieces), the bottom link is much wider on the 11, the rear triangle is more robust, the main frame is beefier. The 11 is by far a better execution. It was well worth the wait.

    I would recommend to the Canfields, if there are issues with meeting delivery dates, just be upfront about it. I work in an industry that is notorius for lateness. As long as you understand the problem and have a recovery plan, I am happy. But don't blow smoke up my keister.

    Got the Rock Shox Monarch Plus installed. BB still really low, did a rough measurement, and it sits ~12.75", takin it out for a spin tonight. My old bike a Turner 5 spot sits around 13.75" for comparison.

    Took it out for a couple loops at the "after work ride". Gettin used to the downhill handling, and dialing in the suspension still. Biggest surprise is how well it climbed. It actually climbed better than my TNT 5 spot. I thought that the slack head angle would make the steep technical climbs very difficult, but the bike tracked very well.

    BB is low and you need to change you riding style a little. You need to be careful when you pedal. I already ripped off one of the pins off my pedal. There are parts of the trail that I really like to hammer out of the saddle to keep the speed up, and needed to check that a little as the pedals were hitting the ground. I set up my monarch at 200psi at first (I weigh about 190lbs geared up) and needed to add an extra 20psi to keep the bb a little higher. Can really rail the berms and is great across the rock gardens. It flys differently than the Turner so need to get used to that, not that I do that all that often though.

    Same here, but I had to dig through the packaging material to find the baggie.

    finally got my One built up

    so I bought the frame in March and after dealing with a flakey wheel builder (which set me back 8 weeks on a wheel set!) and multiple back ordered parts, it is complete. The build, I9 wheels with stans flow, chromag stem/bars, race face atlas cranks and an x9 drivetrain, avid codes. Rode it once on a xc trail and was blown away with how well it climbs, can't wait to get it out on trails with some features!
