If I could validate it I would really like to shove a Woodie on the Jedi but I will probably ride it 2 months next year and I am thinking of selling it since it really does feel a little smal, I dont feel center and I am either of the bars or off the back tire.
    I've ridden the 2011 3 friends have em and they are sweet for sure i definently have time on em.

    Great bikes and I'd keep one for nasty and shuttle days but even then if I'm not hammering the nastiest stuff going I'd break out the one for 90% riding.

    So the comparison is direct and between the 2, you want a bike that can be the muddy Mary of bikes the one is it and the shock set up with lighter spring is the kicker for blowing through chunk and maintaining speed without hanging up.

    New to the Canfield One

    Howdy,

    What is the difference between the v1 and v2?
    Fork to frame hits?
    How is the quality and warranty?

    I have heard really GREAT things about the brothers.

    Sorry if these are noob questions, just doing some research on the bike.

    Thanks!

    v2 is the current version of the The One. It is a completely different bike than the v1.
    v2 is a slack DH\FR\AM bike 10.5-ish pound (with coil shock) frame
    v1 is a long travel XC\AM bike 7.5i-sh lb frame

    Fork to Frame hits----I believe this was an issue on the v1 that was addressed.
    It is not an issue on the v2 One.

    Warranty is 2 years. Quality is excellent----the bike is a piece of art.

    Thanks Disco Stu.

    Confirmed what I was thinking. I'll be in touch with them. It is a beauty.

    Really appreciate the info.

    Best.

    Agreed, One of the most amazing bikes ever made. It out preforms anything I've ever been on. Worth every penny. It is in its own category in terms of high performance throughout several categories of riding styles. In my opinion it is the direction other companies will begin to take in several years, ahead of its time. After 8 years of serious biking I never knew I could be so surprised at how much fun I could have on a bike ride after ride. Other bikes are great, but this one is unexpected. But that is just my opinion.

    It might just be your opinion but aint it nice that pretty much everyone who has ridden the new One feels the same way?
    I know I feel like saying, wake up world, you're all saying 'can't' and the Canfield's say CAN! and back it up.
    and not just can but can do it with the best, dont care what it is.
    Not listening to pretty much everyone who said a 200mm travel bike capable of real DH is not going to work well uphill and XC, was the best thing I've done in cycling so far.
    I think the only thing I would consider riding uphill in preference to the One would be a nice carbon fiber version!

    I love it!! It CAN be done and it has been done by Canfield. I try to be modest when it comes to other bikes-there are really good ones, but there comes a point when a product carries such weight that biases CAN be set aside. There is nothing like it, love it, love biking, especially when on the ONE.

    2012 has some small changes nothing major. Bike is damn near flawless as version 2. Love mi e fully capable and definently a dh'rs trail bike for free ride and overall getting it done.
    What a beast this one has turned out to be. Been hittimg drops, step downs, doubles, raced it dh did a few nasty trails and runs recently and pedalled it to the top of others with no issues.

    Hey Mr. crew,

    Would you know anything about the latest changes to their pedals? Things like pictures, weights, release dates, etc.?

    Thanks, in advance, for whatever it's OK for you to share!

    Are the changes to the 2012 version worth the extra $250?

    Don't know on pedals I'm keeping mine I have 2 sets and completely happy.
    They make changes as they see improvement so I'm sure the pedals coming down the line will be dialed.
    As far as the new one are you more of a downhiller or am rider? A dh rider with one bike will prefer 2011 a all mountain rider may prefer the 2012 I love my 2011 and its slackness.

    The One webpage says has been tweaked:
    Redesigned to be the “ONE” bike for the Aggressive rider. 6.5″ front and rear for the All Mountain rider. 7″ front and rear for the perfect do all Freeride. 8″ front and rear setting for the best pedaling and cornering Light Downhill race machine on the market.

    I can't remember if this is how it read this year or if thats referring to the '012....
    seems to me the '011 AM setup was impractical because the BB ends up so low, hopefully they've figured a way to maintain BB while allowing 6.5" travel. Even better, would be having that done with a new link set, which would also fit the V2

    6.5 travel is with a 2.5" stroke shock. That is the same verbiage as the '11 One.
    The Geo pics up on the website are the same as well.

    I like the way you think, a link set would add an extra arrow to the quiver.

    And I'm pretty sure the website info is still the same, with no changes. I'm really interested to hear about the difference's for the new One though.

    The 2012 "The ONE" will have a couple of changes from the 2011 model. Overall, Canfield Bros. are very happy with this bike. I think everyone would agree the suspension design is top notch excels at not only ups but downs.

    This technology will not change as its damn near perfect. What will change is the following:

    -New head tube gussets. ( for strength and added stiffness)

    -New rear triangle. (with out adding much weight, a stiffer on all axis' rear triangle, it will help with the big guys and the DH guys)

    -BB will slightly raise ( to aid pedal clearance of course, more FR friendly with out giving up DH performance)

    -Headtube will steepen slighty ( still 100% customizable with an angleset. 1.5'' continued)

    - Rear wheel spacing will now be 142mm or 135mm with dropout spacer

    Geo charts will be up for viewing soon !

    The 2012 is going to be every bit as great as the 2011 !

    Thanks for that info!

    Do you think the new rear triangle will be adaptable to the 2011 frame?

    Some nice little upgrades. The fork is killer! I maybe wrong, but reckon the ti spring has tweaked the performance of the Elka. I went Stan's tubeless with the Trail Kings, which made an immediate noticeable improvement in the efficiency department, still playing with the pressure and getting used to tubeless. Though on the way down, as a big rider I think I missing the Minions. Time will tell.

    Other changes still to come and in the mail.

    - SLX 10speed drive train
    - New cranks
    - New bars

    "One" Taken care of

    Had a small crack in my 2010 One under top tube at head tube weld. Chris and the guys at Canfield have been great in taking care of the issue. Getting a new 2012 frame soon and can't wait. Thanks to everyone at Canfield Brothers for taking care of my problem.

    Yes, they do.

    As far as shock choices, it seems almost anything is possible. When I specc'd my bike, they were extremely helpful in suggesting the best shock for my riding style, as well as confirming what else is available. I suggest you contact Canfield with your preference and see what they say

    2011 One + Hammerschmidt

    Hi,

    Just a quick update with my build.

    Been running a Hammerschmidt and absolutely love this setup. I think I am going to sell my Ibis Mojo CF since I hardly use it anymore since this setup. It's not light, but then again i'm no racer, i just like to have fun. Love this bike!!

    Haha i know what you mean, I sold my Nomad as soon as i got my ONE and have been very happy having this and my Yelli Screamy but find myself riding the ONE more than the ht 29er so am even debating putting the Yelli up for sale then having only THE ONE

    I like it. Easy to tune it, I don't have a direct comparison to the DHX-Air on the ONE, but I do have DHX-Air 5.0s on my other bikes, and I think the Marzocchi is more plush in general. Same is true with the 66 ATA, so far the 2011 has been holding up well (unlike my 2009 55 ATA TST2 which has been repaired three times).

    Have you ridden your One with a coil? If so, how would you compere the two.

    Yes, I actually bought the 2011 One with an X-Fusion Vector HLR. I haven't quite got the correct spring rate down yet, actually I'm going to pick up another spring tonight to try and get things dialed for the weekend.

    I used the X-Fusion with a 400lb Ti spring and it was too soft for my ride weight of 190lbs with gear...I was a little over 50% sag with no preload. I am going to try to get sag to about 30% hopefully with a stiffer spring.

    I can say that the x-fusion felt really great though. I do prefer a coil on this frame than air for the most part...i'm happy to give back some extra weight for the coil plushness. A coil on this frame is so plush and smooth in bump absorption. I still need to get better adjusting the Vector though. On my older gen One, I had an Elka Stage 5, and that was an amazing shock...it felt excellent with minimal adjustment.

    The Marzocchi is also good, especially for an air shock IMHO, but it's really just filling in for now. As you can expect, the air shock is a little less plush (but in this case it's only just a little, as it feels really good considering it's air). And it's lighter than the x-fusion with a steel spring. But, with a Ti spring, the x-fusion doesn't feel that much heavier actually. I'll need to weigh them...

    To be honest, I have no issue running the frame with either shock, as the undersprung X-Fusion still pedaled really well with little wallow...amazing. I tend to ride the frame in 7" mode for everything with both shocks.

    Yup, it is a small.

    Agreed on how well it pedals!

    BTW - got my new ti spring for the x-fusion, 550lbs. It seemed higher than I would have expected, but I am now getting about 30-35% sag. Will try and rid ethis weekend to see how it feels.

    Special Kudos to x-fusion. They really go above and beyond in terms of customer service. Helped me dial in my shock and it feels so much better!

    I got the x-fusion on my ONE as well after talking with Chris it seemed to be the best fit for my riding style. I weight 210lbs without gear and like the way the 450lb spring feels it came with (especially in 7" mode which tightens it up a bit) but might try the 500lb Chris sent me.

    And not really a fair comparison but i liked the dhx 5.0 air i always ran on my Nomad but think i will be sticking with the coil from now on.

    Sizing Help

    Hey guys, first time poster long time surfer. I'm 5'11" and feel stuck between sizes sometimes,on mediums and larges. I will definitely have two different builds for this bike on the All Mountain and Downhill days. Thanks for the help you guys have some awesome builds.

    I agree with V.P. I am 5'10" and ride a medium 2011 ONE, it fit's perfect and feel i am no way near needing a large.

    hmm I'm 5'8"+ on a medium, was just wondering if I could have handled a large..that based somewhat on how totally small my wifes 1st gen One is..its so small I screw up one way or another trying to ride it yet I came off a small Spec'y Pitch which was just right.
    I guess the jump in sizes with Canfield is significant therefore a large IS large
    beyond happy with our Canfield's

    btw, even with 203mm travel the standover on a medium is quite low so its friendly to those with short inseams- at 30" I'm using a 5" adj. seat post which is up an inch or two on top of that in the seat tube. Total guess, but perhaps at 32" inseam one might look at a large frame...my setup puts my seat dead even with the bars...

    Thanks for the help guys. I have some time to think about it,since the 2012's wont be out for a while. I know for sure I will be getting my little dude a small with an ultra light DH build.

    I'm 6' on a medium with a 50mm stem. It is spot on, I wouldn't want it any longer or shorter. I use mine mainly for DH but will happily pedal up hill as well (if there is no shuttle). Fit is a matter of personal taste, to a certain degree, but at your height, unless you plan to use it as a time trial or XC racebike - get the medium frame.

    I'm 5'9" and a medium is just right. The standover isn't that high on these frames at any size really. I think 28 inches on a large. My medium 2010 One didn't feel cramped at all in the cockpit. (Why is that word funny?) I ride mostly xc/ all mountain trails and loved the feel of the medium.

    Odd. For the original One I had a large and it fit me perfectly at 5'11". So I got a large as well for the new revision of the One. Stem is 80mm.

    I'm 6 foot even and I can ride both but if your building it as a AM/do everything bike, I'd say go with a large. It will give you more room for your knees and let you run a shorter stem. For mostly dh/fr a medium could work for a 5'11" rider. Shorter wheelbase, more flickable in the air. But I think it's too cramped in the cockpit for do it all riding.

    I bet you love it with the hammerschmidt. I rode our EU's demo bikes for a few weekends with hammer's on them, and they rocked.

    Raked out

    Well, I have the wheels on her, no cranks but was able to sit on my One and tool around the driveway. It is raked out. The bike is beautiful, what a change from the old model with the HT angle. It was actually hard to steer the bike (well maybe not hard) on the pavement. Ponying up for an angleset. Hope that helps. Wonder why such an aggressive change from the old One? I think the old One had a 66 degree with a 180.

    The bike does look great though.

    New ONE is 64 IF you use a 16mm bottom stack and boxxer/ fox 40(or similar A2C), which suits its beefed up DH capability(vs the V1 One). The old One is more AM/light FR vs the new One is more FR/DH. But with the anglesets zero stack lower, you can go right back to the old One's 66 deg(1.5 deg from the angleset adjustment and 0.5 deg from 16mm less stack height). Perfect for trail and AM/FR.
    For straight FR, I'd suggest 65.
    I ride mine at 66 deg and love it but I don't get much DH use. So despite 200mm travel I find it to be plenty nimble for the tightest east coast trails and has uphill steering to die for...my Pitch always ran out of traction in the rear and front when climbing, and at the same time! My One has more traction than I have muscle and the front end stays planted and effective regardless.

    Thanks crossup for the info. I currently have an FSA reducer with a 15 or 16 bottom. I just ordered an angleset due in next week. I ride mostly tight, WNC and NW SC trails, with a lot of uphill. My old one worked fine. Just a bit surprised at the difference once I jumped on this one. From all the posts, not really any that were negative, I should be fine with new rig. Thanks again.

    Ok, I'm officially unhappy with the number of black/white ONEs,now including a medium that somehow became available AFTER I was told none left and none coming. Nothing like settling for a color you dont want then find apparently black is avail....no doubt theres a reason but I'll be wondering why me

    Hey crossup. I actually wanted a black with red link. This one came from overseas as a crash replacement after a bit of a wait so when they said black with white, I said "I'll take it". I'm sure I will take a spill at some point on it and shed a little red on it. (ha, hopefully not)

    I know I'm being juvenile but while Canfield has created the perfectly designed bike, I have to say their color choice and choice of finishes after '09 left me wondering who spiked their koolaid with LSD.
    My wifes nice white painted ONE v1 was exactly what I wanted(of course SHE wanted a black bike, but as a closeout, no other colors where available). After riding her small and seeing how it worked, I knew I had to have one but of course none where available in my size. So I had to wait for the V2's and they're not only not white painted but no paint period.
    Don't know about you but I find the Anodized finish a very poor choice for a FR/DH bike considering the beating they can take(especially shuttling/lifting), its rough texture holds dirt making it hard to clean and maintain, the Anodized can't be repaired if damaged unlike paint and you can forget adding stickers/decals...many just fall right off the textured surface in a few days, it does seem HD vinyl can be made to adhere but even then the edges get crapped up, again because of the texture letting dirt under the edge.
    Then theres the colors- black(not for me but given the other choices OK) friggen pink/champagne- yes its not as bad as I first thought but every time I look at my bike, I wonder where the girl is that owns it I should put my wife's purple cranks on it
    and of course bare...nice for your 10 year old war horse but pretty ugly in my book, at least it will take decals and can be easily refinished if need.
    Knock on wood, so far I have no scratches despite a full day of shuttling, but to say I was doing everything I could to prevent trauma is a major understatement. I expect I'll be powder coating it after the first week of lift served riding this season.

    I don't know crossup. It looks pretty good to me. Makes me think of northern California and wine country. Ahhhh, had some good times in Napa Valley. Lol, just playing. Man, you have some nice components on that bad boy.

    Well thats why I dont hate it(the color)....too many complements and I do admit to NOT wanting the same thing everyone else has, hence a brand new, yet powder coated Pitch. When I thought about doing that to the ONE I decided the factory finish was too nicely done to waste, I DO like the factory decals.
    As to the pieces, thanks, I guess its a bit lightweight for a DH bike but I'm both old and well under 150 pounds suited up so hopefully it will hold up and not require a better wheelset for lift use.
    Looks like you've got a pretty sweet build too and I doubt you'll be sweating anything breaking. BTW, you pretty much built the bike I would have color wise

    You make it sound like these bikes are wacky colors. But there are far better examples of "LSD" color combos out there which puts things in perspective:





    I'd take basic black or raw ano over something like that

    It's always nice to have a plethora of colors to choose from. But I think that's just not feasible for such a small company. I think the Jedi/One frame colors and finish are a smart way to go, very understated and classy. I guess I lucked out in that I really like black anodized

    What size One do you recommend for a 5'6" rider that wants to do a mix of FR w/ pedaling, lite DH & jumping, and Moab Porcupine style all mt riding? I'm torn because I ride a Medium all mt (IBIS mojo) but my DH bikes have always been Smalls. I know a smaller frame will DH better but I'm thinking I'll have issues when I take it XC. Any recommendations?

    Well, go by reach and TT length. The One is similar in size to many other bikes, so if you can't testride one, you could try to sit on a bike with the same cockpit geo and see if you like it. Personal taste plays a big role, too- If I was 5'6", I'd be on a small for sure...

    Here's my (medium) 2011 One in full DH dress, now with Mavic 823 tubeless in the back and 165mm cranks. I am 6' by the way and the medium frame couldn't be more spot on for me.

    Canfield &quot;One&quot; 2011 by lelebebbel, on Flickr

    I am really noticing the additional ground clearance coming from 175mm cranks. I'd highly recommend to go 165mm for anyone riding the One DH in rocky terrain. I can now pedal through a few sections where I used to hit rocks, so 165s are definitely faster for me.

    Don't know about you but I find the Anodized finish a very poor choice for a FR/DH bike considering the beating they can take(especially shuttling/lifting), its rough texture holds dirt making it hard to clean and maintain, the Anodized can't be repaired if damaged unlike paint and you can forget adding stickers/decals...
    Funny - I think anodizing is the best possible choice for a DH/FR (or any other) bike. It is actually very, very scratch resistant compared to powder or paint, it hardens the surface of the aluminium. When comparing any anodized bike to a painted one after a few years, the ano always looks 10 times better. The toughest finish you could get, save for maybe spraying the frame with rhino liner or something. Ano also doesn't add any weight to the bare frame! It is more expensive than paint though, and the color choices are limited of course.

    Since this is most likely the last bike I'll ever own and hope to ride it for at least 5 years I had hoped I would have one I REALLY liked the colors on but I will be thankful that its not any where near as bad as some bikes.

    Ok, guys I get it, I'm the only one who feels this way. Time for me to shut up and ride

    crossup, i completely know what you mean. I had the same reservations when I bought my Ibis Mojo. Preferred the black carbon, but got an awesome deal on the Guinness foam color. Even though I love the bike, I still wish i had it in the black finish. And each time I ride it, I always have that feeling. I just got lucky the One came in a color i liked.

    At some point you could get it repainted. I've done that before in the past and it gives you a nice customized bike in the end that could work out even better.

    This One is growing on me

    The V2 of the One downhill is much faster than the V1. I am learning the changes in the frame and adapting to them nicely on the trail. The biggest thing that I have yet to master is that when climbing, the rake and tire "flop" is noticeable. Overall, I do like it. An angleset should be here soon and hopefully, that flop will become an afterthought. This frame is feels a bunch more solid as well than the previous model.

    That would be interesting, but hard to do. You'd need a one and a jedi with the same built (fork, shock, wheels+tires mainly) to really compare.

    That is the qwest for the season.
    All year we are going to be setting up timed sections.
    We want to see the overall big picture between them. On all kinds of tracks.

    I've compared the One with the RM flatline, which is an amazing bike and it definitely outshine it in significant areas IMO. The One gets up to speed much quicker because of its superior pedaling abilities. If there are slow sections on a course the One will pedal faster and get you back up to speed quicker. It also seems to want to go faster than the flatline as well, though in this I haven't push it to the limit at all because the One is a better bike than I am a biker. The rear suspension also appears to go through rocky sections better. The flatline takes really sharp corners a little better and I think the Jedi will do even better considering its shorter chainstay length. The Jedi will handle rock gardens better with the rear wheel travel.
    It seems the One and Jedi will shine in different areas. It will be interesting to see which characteristics end up better overall in the end and by how much. I'm sure there will be some surprises in both with how they handle in different terrain.
    Keep us posted

    Thanks, though you didn't answer the geometry question, is that not finalized?

    Hey man that looks really good! The fork looks bigger than the 160's, must be just the pic angle or something. As soon as you get some good time on the bike I'd really like to hear what you have to say about the Vivid. Any idea of the weight?

    The fork is the 2011 model which has a taller a to c measurement. It is only about 10mm shorter than my 180mm marzzochi 66 evo ti. That and i made the headtube about 2° steeper with the angleset.
    As faf as the vivid i will have a good feel of it at the end of the month when i head to moab.
    Weight is 33.2lbs as it sets. Could drop a little by getting rid of the dropper and upgrading some of the drivetrain. But not worried about it.
    Thsnks for thecomments

    I angle-setted my frame +1.5d. Pretty happy so far, it feels really comfortable. And that's an interesting factor about the fork, some food thought.

    Beautiful. I just put the 1.5 angle set on mine today. It was like wrestling a wet pig getting it and then all the sudden the gimbles aligned. It was really weird. Like they were just toying with me.

    I was pleasantly surprised how well the cups pressed in. Especially after the effort it took to get the CC 40 series out. And aligning the gimbles seemed too easy, I wondered if I had done it right.

    As for wrestling a wet pig, I think I'll add that to my bucket list

    The wet pig reference was waaaaay back in the college days on a night when I may have had a few too many and there wasn't a lot of choices.........Skip that on the list......

    That's got me excited about the new frame design, but I was hoping for some specifics, like the diagrams on the Bros web site for the '11 model. Patience is not one of my virtues

    One might think that since pre-orders are been taken all the info would be readily available. But one the other hand if you were really interested the bro's would give you all the info need over the phone/email.

    Hell, I'd almost blind-buy because of the color scheme!

    Here's One in NC.

    Great bike. 99% dialed. Very fast downhill, and I'm usually first uphill as well. (Give some of the credit to my HUGE quads.)

    Great shot Tim ! I am personally stoked you are enjoying your ride ! It is quite a bit different than the old XC version 1. I love hearing people say the V2 out climbs the V1, and on the downhills.....well we all know the answer there.......
