    hmm. always heard sapim spokes needed a fair bit of tension to be in spec and with the flows without eyelets and the recommendation from stans to run them at low tensions would have thought a wheelbuilder would have recommended a different spoke. any issues with yours? love sapim spokes but have only used them on mavic rims for this reason.

    nice bike btw. how do you find the bb height at 160mm travel?

    All around setup

    So far this is my favorite setup for riding everything under the sun aside from pure DH trails. 2011 Roco Air TST and 2011 66 ATA RC3 Evo Ti. Waiting on Hammerschmidt as it's tough to climb with a 1x9 (for me at least!). This weekend the X-Fusion Vector HLR and Boxxer goes back on for Northstar, It's amazing how versatile this bike is!

    it sucks that according to the head guy at chumba that all bikes that are built by pacific like canfied bros, banshee, niner and orbea to name a few are cheap bikes built at the same factory as walmart bikes and over priced compared to chumba bikes.

We do answer our phones, but we also don't take pictures of our bikes on the floor of a department store factory.

    its possible, money talks over there, and some people might be paying more than we are to get better service. i think our quality comes from one of the top factories over there who don't make any frames that retail for less than $1,000.00 and we pay a lot for our frames,

    whereas other bike companies produce their stuff at factories that also make department store bikes like diamondback (nothing against them i know ppl who owned one growing up), so the quality, in my opinion, is definitely different even though t he designs look kind of similar. for examples, this company carries a lot of different brands from low-end to high-end: http://www.pacific-cycles.com/product.asp

    nothing against it, its just how it is...so yea it depends
    there's the thread it's from. this is all in a thread that details how they stole a customers personal property. a total train wreck.

    "mini mE-VO"

    as a banshee owner i was kind of insulted. slagging the competition is a sad way to build up your brand. i've always liked canfield bros bikes too.

    Go back to the Chumba forum dude. Just because something is built at the same place as another doesn't mean the quality is the same. I actually have a Canfield One and have ridden the snot out of it and can assure you that it is of the highest quality. Chris and Lance's customer service is excellent----pre-sale and post-sale. That thread has nothing to do with "the One" which this thread is all about.

    qbert,

    It seems that you are still little delirious from your recent schooling over in the Chumba forum, it's clear your out of your comfort zone. So please keep your flames to yourself and go and lick your wounds elsewhere.

    and what schooling was that? i realize you are a chumba fanboi but since you also own a canfield bros bike built at the same factory that d00sh is slagging. i'm surprised you would defend him. my banshees are quality bikes and built at the same factory as the canfield bikes. i have a hard time reading the crap the chumba owner writes to slag his competition. obviously you don't mind his bull5h!t

    Sorry Qbert but you've been mis-informed. Pacific Cycle"S" is a high end manufacturer, where as Pacific Cycle is the "walmart" maker.

    Yes - http://www.pacific-cycles.com/

    Not - http://www.pacific-cycle.com/brands

    The Diamond Back frame that Pacific Cycles built was a $10,000 G-Box bike. Hardly walmart level. Crap, even there inhouse brand bikes sell for more than a $1000. $910 for a Carry Me kids bike is about a cheap as they go!!!

    The forums have gone over this before, I know it's confusing but seriously. I don't follow whats happening over in Chumba land but If thats what Oscar is spreading, that is very unprofessional. I have been at the factory to over see every production run. Every factory has there issues but as a company owner that wants the best products, I watch every step along the way and ensure a quality product. If your not there doing QA, I can see how all sorts of problems could arise. FYI - we use alot of different manufactures, each with there own specialty.

    thats the dude from chumba spreading that. i just wanted to inform canfield bros of it. thats a quote from oscar from chumbs spreading that bs in the chumba forum while slagging other brands. my banshee bikes are built at pacific cycles. i know the difference

    and here is who builds quality bikes. http://www.pacific-cycles.com/ for companies like banshee, orbea, niner, canfield bros and diamondback


    one "s" is all it takes for oscar and allan to try to hurt their competition. they know it too. but again for them it's much easier to bash the competition than put out a quality product and let it compete on its own merits. check out the forums for the other brands built at pacific. you wont see their owners stooping to oscar and allan's level or stealing items from their own customers.

    it doesn't matter where chumbas are made, they still have the worst ownership in the business. no class, no integrity and low sales. they'll die off all on their own

    Ok back to the ONE
    After observing the wife's ONE for a year, I'm finally going to get the answer the question none of you have been asking:
    Can a 60 year old boy find true happiness pedaling a 200mm travel bike on technical climbs?!?
    I know conventional wisdom says nope, you're gonna hate life, but truth is, the same thing was said about my 150mm bike. Spent extra moola to have a U-turn fork so it would climb...never use it and cant see where I'm going to be worried about climbs suddenly now.
    However, I have already considered properly designing a pull down lanyard for climbing to hold the fork at 175/180 mm if it just wont hunt at 200mm.

    Anyway, frame ordered medium Ti/ white links White 010 Boxxer WC purchased. Probably Vivid Air for the backend. Rest will be off my Pitch, so Raceface Next Carbon cranks, Specialized CF bars, XTR derailers and shifters. Elixir CR 203/180 brakes. Crossmax SX wheels KS i950 post
    Hoping for under 35 pounds with WTB/Kenda tires run tubeless

    Nice job. Just wait till you get it on the maiden voyage, it'll knock your socks off!

    I had my second ride on my One and while climbing a pretty steep and loose section all I could hear myself saying was, I can't believe it's in 7" and its climbing! Climbing just like my trail bike.

    I'm more than happy with this ride. I'll also get some "beauty" shots up this weekend.

    Thanks, my socks have already been knocked off at least 3 times by the ONE. 1st My wife's in ability to make her's pedal bob. Last night I experienced first hand the Canfield pedal lockout effect in my garage. And lastly the extreme suppleness, lack of stiction and general mega goosh factor is unbelievable, and I come from a motocross backround where upside down 12" travel forks etc are the norm. It a magnitude better than anything I've bounced on....I will probably have a serious OMG moment when I actually ride it tonight

    Got my first ride in today, and all I can say is how can the rest of the world NOT know how superior these bikes are?
    Todays ride was mainly to evaluate basic trail handling traits-
    Pretty much every aspect of the handling was a significant improvement from my mac'd out Pitch- a bike everyone loves and is considered pretty competent in the AM world.
    VERY stable(w/66 deg HA), bike went well thru deep sand, instead of plowing and squirming, when it slid, it slid evenly front and back. Really feels nice carving a turn, the suspension was obviously keeping the tires pinned to the trail and that really helped when it was root city. Was surprised that the bike seemed to have much less tendancy than most to stand up when using the front brake in a turn.

    Also, most importantly for climbing, both ends of the bike refused to give me any pedal bob. I expected the back end to do that but there's no fancy linkage to keep the Boxxer from bobbing BUT it didn't...I assume the rears resistance to bob keep the bike from starting to bob in the first place.

    I find the pedal force feels odd cause it feels like in addition to normal pedal forces, that I feel an anti-bob force or maybe it just that the bike doesnt move ANY when I pedal and I'm so used to getting at least a little reaction to hard pedaling that I'm interpretting that as a resisting force. Either way, its a different sensation.

    On an entirely different note, I had the wife hop on my bike since the seatpost adjusts easily and it appears(we'll double check on flat ground) that my medium '011 with 200mm travel has a lower standover than her '09 ONE with only 150mm travel.
