    Just wondering if Sram's short cage 10 speed rd will work in harmony with the One, anyone know?

    I'm thinking of running it with a 28t or 32t front ring.

    This is what happens when you own a One

    It really works! Rain or shine you too can have a big smile like this one. Just purchase a Canfield Brother's One using their top notch customer service and BAM, a smile that will last for years. Thanks Brothas.

    Just got a 2011 One frame but haven't built it up yet (still waiting on parts). I'm wondering how many people ride in 7'' mode. I have a 2.75'' stroke shock so I can run either 7 or 8 but I really don't think I'd need 8'' of travel. I have and external cup headset and a 160 mm fork. For those with similar setups can you summarize the characteristics in each travel setting in terms of geometry (HA and BB height) and handling? Thanks.

    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 !
    Any luck on getting that Geo charts up? Quite excited to for the updates!

    Anybody at Canfeild HQ---- Will the new rear end fit the 2011 model... Could use a stiffer rear end.

    Hate to have to get a 2012 model if I don't need to..

    Thanks

    What are you talking about, the One's read end is stiff, no play that so ever! It rails like a mudda F&%#$@r!

    Just get a 8mm allen key and wrench on the linkage points, your probably got a loose point.

    2012 One Geometry

    Just returned from a race in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Rode a 2011 One and took 5th overall. Stoked on the ride and really looking forward to building these for 2012. Starting welding in about a week.

    Cheers!

    NICE! the most obvious changes I see is that the 2012 has;

    -30.9 post
    -142x12 thru axle
    -the bike is a bit shorter
    -a bit taller BB
    -a bit more steep
    -rear triangle seems to have gotten a bit more welding
    -upper front triangle seems to have gotten a bit more welding as well


    Btw the 2012 XL, is listed as a 2011.

    I am wondering if anybody has encountered the following issue. I tried installing a brand new XT direct mount front derailleur. To be able to tighten the screw I had to loosen the shock to raise the link a little bit. When I tried to re-install the shock I realized I could not. The link was hitting the derailleur screw. Has this happened to others? I guess the most likely solution is to shave the head of the screw by something like 2mm.

    Looking at the 2012 drawings I wish I had a 2012 one.

    I think someone needs to start a 2012 Canfields Bros The One info.

    I really like the changes. The numbers are spot on. That frame will be killer with a 160mm fork.

    I initially had the same Issue. But I just used a shorter chain guide bolt with the flater head and it mounted up just fine and with out any hangups.

    I was trying to swap my 1 x to a double and had the same issue here, then I ground the bolt head down a little to get it to clear the upper link, but...

    Even with the FD all the way down the cage was still a long way from the right height from the teeth, >1cm, ended up putting 1x set-up back on for the trip. Side note, granny gears are nice when riding Moab on a 35lb bike.

    Set up is an SLX double, 36t ring and the same FD m-661 direct mount everyone else is using on '11 medium One.

    If someone has cranks off could measure the distance from the top of the BB shell to the bottom of the FD mount block I'd appreciate it. Any other advice?

    I had to buy a M6 screw with a thinner head. Now it clears easily.

    However I now have a full bag of those screws as they were not sold individually at Fastenal.

    Makes me want to cry with joy after a zillion posts trying to get people to understand NO BOB is an understatement. Seems like for a year I was the only one willing to say unequivoqually the ONE is one of the best pedaling bikes, regardless of type. A hardtail with 8" rear travel

    I'm guessing you want info from RSullivan, who posted the bike above. I just replied to him...
    I'm 5'9 on a medium but Boxxer WC and Elka Stage5 coil, which I recommend over any airshock and single crown, but thats just me, I can't see where less is more in this case so I go with more!
    I'm also a light weight AND old so if I thought there was a penality for an 8" setup I'd be the first to say so, but for my money there just no reason, even for casual trail use not to go dual crown and coil shock on this bike.

    I love it too!
    Especially since it validates my choice of SX wheels...if a big moose like you can get away with it, my scrawny, old butt will never be able to hurt them
    As to raked out...it looks like you're running a zero stack setup...that drops at least 0.5deg, so on paper with matching suspensions, you would be at 64.5deg
    Mine gets year round trail use with maybe a week of bike park time
    but my point is I'm riding at 66 deg with a BoXXer and its so nice downhill, I doubt I'll steepen it up for DH use.

    Yup, I run zero stack, I don't know how slack it actually is, but 64'ish sounds right. And. I. Love.It.

    Finally got a good timeframe of riding my "ONE"..... from a couple of months on our local single track to a weeks worth of riding in MOAB.. It is one of the smoothest and most pedal friendly FS bikes I have ridden to date. I even borrowed a couple of rentals while in Moab..(Pivot,Ibis and a Nomad) love the "ONE" much better. Took all the hits and kept begging fr more. Made a few changes though... big one was wheels. Went from Crank Bros Iodine 2 to my trusty Stans Flow with WTB Super Duty hubs. This change was only made due to the engagement tolerance (less points of contact) in the rear hub. Since the One has a low BB, needed a little quicker engagement for those occasions over rocks and logs.
    Here is a current shot of the bike after all the love it has been given lately...


    The Canfield Bros did it right when they built this frame.... now to make the needed changes for my weekend of downhill riding coming up...

    Thanks Chris and Lance and everybody at Canfield

    33.13# as it sits. Could definitely get it much lower by going to xo or xx parts and lighter wheels but i wanted reliability for the moment.

    I noticed you went from the vengeance to the 66. Was there anything you didn't like about the vengeance? I am considering it for my next fork.

    No nothing wrong with the vengeance. Just put it on a different bike cuz i am starting to get the one ready for a little dh fun. Wanted a coil fork for that and had the 66 laying around. The vengeance might go back on later for more xc use.

    5 8 and a half...on a medium. Great fit, came from a small Pitch which also fit perfectly.
    Also running a offset seatpost and Canfield stem so I'd guess a medium with straight post would be about right for 5 7" especially with a short stem.

    Canfield

    Finally finished my Enduro/DH build. Took it out for a quick spin and it's an amazing trail machine... almost easier to pedal than my 27 lb Ibis and WAY more fun on the DH. Dropped a few small 4 foot drops and it was as smooth as my DH rig. Currently running an angleset at +1 (65 degrees or so?) but I think I may drop it down to 0 degrees for my first resort day this Friday.

    Thanks!

    Weighed in at 34.3 lb w/ heavy-a$$ Azonic Outlaw wheels and DH Tubes + the reverb seat post. I'm guessing a lighter tubeless wheelset, and DHX Air or Vivid Air would drop her to 32 and change.

    Question for those running a travel adjust fork. Do you find when dropping the fork it effects performance when climbing?

    I remember that on my old Chumba that when I dropped the travel on the Talas it would actually make climbing harder. I believe a lot of bikes had this same outcome, I also remember reading an MBA article on the same subject a few years back.

    Personally I will run my Talas at 100mm (!) when climbing long fireroads and know there is no technical features. For smooth singletracks climbs I will use the fork at 130mm. Otherwise running at 160mm is fine for technical climbing.

    I do agree that, for technical climbs with lots of rocks and roots, dropping the fork feels like it hampers climbing performances. However I feel that I can go through a lot at 130mm without much negative impacts.

    Updated.....My 2011 ONE... Besides color change went with a new set of wheels.. Stans Flow 650B with HOPE hubs and DT double butt spokes. Using Panceti Neo-Moto 2.1 tires. Felt a little weird at first but then lowered the stem 1/2" and all feels right now. Free height of BB is right around 13.5" with 180mm using the angleset headset with 1.5deg steeper on top and 0deg on bottom. Going to hit a little DH/XC action this weekend . Will see how they handle ...

    Just finished 8 days of trail riding in Vermont on the Kingdom Trails and that erased any lingering doubts about using an 8" travel bike as a trail bike. It absolutely rocks climbs of all types and I cleared many uphill ledges that I would have had trouble pushing my Specy Pitch up.
    Only bummer was that no one seemed to notice the 'idiot' riding a full spec DH bike uphill, even when I passed people uphill so I didn't get to brag much on how great the bike is

    How did that setup work? Any problems? Anyone from Canfield have any comments to using a 9" eye to eye?

    Worked great, never had any problems with it when I was on it. However, if I was still on the DHX, I'd probably send it out to avalanche for the damping upgrade, as I would have preferred better damping control.

    Rode at the resort last weekend with a big group and started playing swap-a-bike. Consensus was that my '11 One was definitely the most fun. Granted I had the most $ into the build, but damn I love that bike.

    Only thing is I can't manual the One at all. Got on a 40lb+ Intense M9 fro and almost looped out every time I pulled back on the bars. I thought it was just my general sucking at manualing, but starting to think that it is as much the bikes I've been riding (One, and DW link bikes previously) or my set up.

    Is it me, or is this suspension just harder to manual?

    Hi drsmonkey,

    Thanks for sharing this information as I'm very interested in this frame. I'm guessing those that are knowledgeable about the bike will say it's a combination of the Head Tube angle plus the Chain Stay length that causes your experience. However, I'm posting just so I learn what those experienced with the frame will say.

    I'm on a 2005 Santa Cruz VP Free that manuals easily. I'm guessing that's because it has a steeper Head Tube angle and shorter Chain Stays than your bike. Since I mostly ride to find things to jump on to, over or off of the ability to easily manual is important to me.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Michael

    I think its a whole host of factors...long and low, raked out and in my case, squishy suspension. That said, it doesnt seem terribly hard to manual even though I dont do well at it, I DO loft the front end all the time as in mini-manual. Now that I have a lot of time riding on it, I find I'm more aggressive with my manual inputs and often the front wheel never touches the log etc I'm going over. I've always thought my inability to EASILY manual was a result of being light(150) and not committing.

    I took a lesson several years ago at Snowshoe and remember thinking I'll never be able to do a big *** manual but a little coaching and I was having to grab a handful of brake to keep from going over backwards. Since then I've not practiced seriously as I rarely find myself wishing I could do a big manual to do some obstacle or feature, but I bet practice is all it would take.
    I can say without reservation that I love the way the front end sticks on climbs and cornering and would NOT like a bike that was manual happy as that has to reduce the "planted" feel.
    On a MX bike, one can move around a mile to weight either end as needed, but on a bicycle, you are pretty much limited while seated to leaning forward and pushing to help weight the front end...thats not enough, in my book to make a light front end bike corner or climb well.

    I struggled to manual my Jedi when I first got it. I was on a Wildcard and Delirium, still am, and both have shorter CS. I found that I was way too low on the LSC compresion settings and with the rearward travel it was super hard to manual. Once I had my suspension dialed and I spent time getting to know the bike I had no issue. I pratice manualing and bunny hopping alot and I dont believe its enough to expect to get the front wheel up if you only try it on the trail in the time of need. Manuals are an awesome technique for the trail and if anything it will give you confidence when the front wheel does come up for whatever reason. I expect the One will be the same here and good suspension setup together with repeated manual time off the trails will help. It may require more input which may require a little confidence you will not flip but you will get the hang of it. I can manual my Jedi no probs now. Remember to push down on the pedals when you go into the manual and not just yank on the bars. If anything it will throw your balance when the front comes up. Practice Practice Practice.

    So far enjoying the bike set up with the 650b wheels. Handles awesome on the local XC trails. The 3/4" rise of the BB helps with pedal strikes but doesn't raise it too much to screw up the handling on the downhills. The 650b wheel hype is no joke... the roll over and momentum of the wheels is awesome. Rode a weekend on some lift assist in upper michigan, bike held its own but could have used wider tires. Had 2.1 neo-motos but needed 2.3. Thinking to put the bike back to 26" wheels though and make it more of a dedicated downhill/freeride bike. Hopefully Canfield comes out with a 650b frame next year.

    Oh nah, it's all good man. We still appreciate the info! Someone's likely to also be running a straight steerer, so it's cool that you let it be known.

    Maybe I am lost, but why not try Works Components? I have two of them on 1 1/8 headtubes and they work great. (non-canfield) They have tons of options, they are inexpensive, and I got mine in about 2 weeks.

    the biggest problem with both CC and WC is one has to remove press in components to change angles. The VP unit requires an allen wrench only and therefore is easily adjusted on the trail.
    Or put another way, special tools(or VERY careful use of substitutes) and 10 minutes with the fork already off the bike VERSUS stay seated on bike, pull out allen wrench, loosen stem bolt(s), loosen 2 allen screws, change HA, tighten 2 allen screw then stem bolt(s). RIDE.
    Elapsed time under 2 minutes or in my dual crown case, under 1 minute.

    Eh I'll bump up an older thread. I feel my One needs to be in here!

    2011 Large The One
    Vivid 5.1 Rear
    160 Kashima Talas - Will be upgrading to a 180
    Sun Ringle Charger Pro Wheels with 2.25 Ardents (waiting for my 2.4 front to come in).
    Set up 1x9 with XO front / rear
    Thomson Masterpiece Seatpost
    Easton Havoc Carbon Bars
    Easton Haven Stem
    CC 110 Headset
    XT Crankset
    Bionicon C-Guide
    XTR Brakes

    Overall super fun bike, builds up surprisingly light at 30.7lbs. This pretty much is my do everything ride, it's pretty amazing in this light of build. Just got back from a 50 mile epic XC ride yesterday and was no problem at all. I'm super impressed with the Bionicon C-Guides too, I've yet to drop a chain, from doing everything from DJ's, DH, XC rides and everything else you could do on this beast.

    Couple of pics!

    could you please give a short review of the Bionicon C-guide with the 1x9 setup?
    interesting to know how it deals with the rough stuff without the upper guide

    Honestly I'm surprised at the amount of chunk that this little guy can handle. I'm running 1x so I don't have to deal with any shifting and using the C-Guide I've yet to have a chain drop. I've done some lighter DH days, jump days, and overall I'm extremely pleased with the guide.

    While this isn't huge, the C-Guide handles stuff like this with out an issue so far.

    sounds great
    i run a 1x9 on my one too, and been wondering if the c-ring alone could handle the 8" travel of the ONE.
    i currenty run a full chainguide and the c-guide could be a nice weight reduction

    I'm seriously considering this frame.
    Would a decently wide 650b tire (i.e. an Hans Dampf) fit in the rear? I'd surely go with a 650b front but if it fits in the rear too it would help to gain some BB height.

    Thank you rsullivan, was it a tight fit or a comfortable one?

    It was snug but worked. If you had heavy mud on the trail then I would be worried otherwise no problem. Going to put the 650b's back on for the trip back to Moab this year. What the extra clearance for the rocks

    I'll start with a few question on this frame I'm going to buy and slowly build:
    -What's the headtube inner diameter? is it 56mm?
    -Would it be possible to fit a stealth telescopic seatpost? could the cable exit at the bottom of the seat tube?
    -Does anyone use a RS Monarch Plus for AM riding? how does it feel?
