    Twenty6 Ti Predator pedals (only thing, the pins don't last near rocks and they tenderize any flesh)

    First bike I've ever built. Learning process!
    Already been mentioned, but ditch the Hayes rotors, go with Ice Techs to match with your XT's. Get a saddle that's 200-220g, some models can run up to 500g. I personally have a Nukeproof Plasma trail @215g and it's great.

    Biggest part, ditch the tire setup. DHF with DH tubes is overkill times a lot. I am running the Spec butcher control tubeless on xm819 rims and they feel strong so far. Was at Moab this past weekend and smashed porcupine and ahab with this set. It's nearly 4 lbs lighter than my original setup of ex823's with Spec butcher dual ply's. I'm over 200lbs geared and am pretty rough on tires.

    You can't go wrong with SRAM X9 or SHIMANO XT for your drivetrain. 170mm at the longest on cranks depending on your local trail. 180mm fork- either fox or marzoochi . 40-55mm stem for balance. For wheels I'd go with Spank for cost and durability. You can build a solid bike for your budget but will have to look at quality levels of the parts to better judge build cost. Hope that helps. You will not regret your purchase. The ONE is a very versatile bike for the person who can only build one bike to do it all. Oh ....it does it all well!!! Get a hold of Sean or Vin at Canfield and they will get you sorted out.

    Great pics! Beautiful place to ride, and nice build on the bike. What do you think of the pedaling ability of The One? I'm loving mine. Canfield nailed that suspension design for sure!

    2012 One!!!

    Just put a 2014 fox float 40 on my 12 the one. So rad! Had about 2 dozen DH runs on the new set up.

    Spinning out of the 28t too fast though, time to gear up! Wicked step up for me. Happy!

    Anyone know where to get minion dhf 2.5 super tackys from? Having a hard time finding them and my 2.35s are done.

    They should be awesome for enduro racing. Maybe a little heavier than what some are using, but the pedaling ability should help to negate that. It's a breeze pedaling this thing to the top, turn it around and it rips down like a DH bike. Soo much fun to ride!

    Funny, I just saw this. I had a 180 float and switched to a 14' fox forty and a 34t front for DH (trying to get better but love it). Super big boy bike feel for me.

    I changed my cranks back to saint and did some work on it today. Decided to go to a local XC trail, it's not my trail bike though. The 34t was work on the climb with the 40 up front BUT the uphill traction is mind blowing STILL, even on techy rock climbs. So on answer to your question for XC, it's work but still climbs like a freak! That combo is a lot if you are just trail riding IMO.

    After reading everything I can find on The One, I've slapped cash on the barrel head and and will have a brand new med. by next Friday. Couldn't resist the urge to pick up a new '12 66 rc3 evo Ti and some 170mm cranks for the build. I'm cannibalizing the rest of the parts off of my NomadC. After I get some time in on my One, I'll decide on whether to rebuild the Nomad as a trail bike with a 55 Ti, or just sell the frame and '10 66 rc3 Ti that's on it. I'm hoping it will be the latter.

    Nice Jason. I'm waiting on a few small parts to get my build wrapped up. Did you build yours? Looks like your running the rear brake line along the down tube, and the rear derailleur cable under the top tube, right? That working OK?

    yeah so far no issues with any cabling in last months

    I have had issues with these parts (and replaced them)

    XX1 chain with shimano 11 speed road chain
    trail king continental tires
    cane creek angleset headset
    740mm bars

    one thing I have learned is its not all about cutting weight. The components still have to be able to take a beating.

    I broke 2 cane creek angleset headests within 3 weeks. I broke the XX1 chain twice in 4 rides (2 chains). I buckled the sidewalls of the trail king tires on multiple sets. The 740 mm bars are too narrow, I have wide shoulders, just prefer 780mm for everything

    The lightest builds come in just under 30lb, but most are probably in the 32-34 range. The big DH builds with dual crowns are probably around 34-36. Mine is an X9 build with a single crown air fork and air shock, and average weight wheels. Adding a dropper post put it just under 34 if i remember correctly. Super light for such a burly and capable bike.

    Mine is 35lbs. with the Minions & steel spring. Saint brakes & King hubs. When I find a Ti spring for the CCDB, it'll drop ~6-7ozs.-nearly a half pound. At 34lbs., it would be 2-3 pounds heavier than my carbon Nomad was with the same parts.

    Getting closer. I'm a little farther along than these pics. Trying to find time to finish this build is putting a strain on my relationships

    I'm particularly proud of this wheel build. Lots of small fun things and got to use my new fabricated "thousands of an inch" truing stand.

    2012 One!!!-img_2269.jpg

    Mavic 821 laced to Hadley 142 XD black hub. 14mm Sapim Alloy nipples blue. DT Champion 14/15 black spokes. 32H 3 cross. I put a lot of small attention to details into the build.

    Here's the wheel with it's mate (for now) - an Easton 20mm Haven Carbon. Paired with Shimano ICE Tech 180mm rotors, Schwable Hans Dampf and XX1 cass:

    2012 One!!!-img_2275.jpg

    Finally a partial pic:

    2012 One!!!-img_2279.jpg

    So this is an used 2012 One w/ black links and a Vivid DH Air. Lyric RC2 DH 20mm 170mm full 1.5. I used my X0 DH cranks and swap'd the spider w/ my XX1 cranks so I could use the 166 on this bike and the 156 on my Single Speed (same arms).

    So far there are a few surprises:

    1. The Non-drive side BB threads could use a chase. Not horrible but if it creaks I'll be running it through.

    2. A bit surprised at the rear der cable routing. Wasn't paying attention and I guess there's only one dedicated housing routing point. Two would be cleaner (as I've seen some rears have). Maybe this has been hashed through on the forums tho?

    More coming as I finish it up. Cheers!

    Here's where it sits today - right in from of the Katooms. Rideable but with my test cable/hose routing and sans final adjustments.

    Using the bathroom scale I'm somewhere between 31-32lbs depending on how I shift my weight - ha.

    2012 One!!!-img_2286.jpg

    Everything's nice except I managed to break a prong on the LEV cable set-screw end thingy. Junky system there in my opinion. Hope the sell that piece!

    Of course it's finally snowing today so no pedaling...

    Nice rid/build. My beast is around 37-38.

    The LEV can definitely be finicky, but it's my favorite dropper by far when all dialed in. I haven't had any issues with two of them since their initial set-up.

    What was your reasoning with running the cables to the outside of the upper link and rear triangle?

    I ran mine beneath the link along the top of the downtube, and kept them to the inside, at Vin's behest after inquiring about routing. Had considered running them to the outside below the rear upper pivot after passing through the link, being concerned about the cables/hoses getting damaged from rocks and such being pulled into that area, but it hasn't been an issue thus far.

    I agree with Yama if you don't mind some input.

    I have been riding my one AM/DH with 2 different forks and routed through:
    - downtube weld
    - top shock mount
    - yoke

    Cables and hoses clean, out of the way and no damage, just a little expected rub.

    Nice build also!!!
    I got more bikes than skills, son!

    Thanks Yama. Hopefully I'll get that LEV part soon.

    To level with you on the routing - I just went intuitive by following the guides - I also looked at some pictures and have some stuff on older routing from Canfield. My routing is as follows:

    Rear Der: Along top tube (mount) - over linkage - follows to inner swing arm (mount) - finally to outer swingarm (truss).

    Rear Brake: Down tube (mount) - foward pivot (mount) - outside of linkage to swing arm lower (mount) - out of inner swingarm to brake caliper.

    Maybe I should recheck via yours? I'll snap pics later (much easier) - I'm not set on this but it seems to make sense.

    I was just curious is all, as I obsessed over which way to do it, but it certainly works either way. You will be getting some line rub/wear for sure on your linkage.

    Running it down the tube under/between the top link is what Vin/Sean at Canfield said they prefer. There's no rubbing whatsoever, as the link lifts away during travel, and won't go any lower than where it is at static, which has enough room for the routing.

    Here are some pics of how I have mine routed. (From the 2013 One thread) I have the lines ziptied right at the welds on the second pic, but they're probably not necessary.





    This is the way I had considered routing it prior to the aforementioned Brothers' advice, where it runs to the outside of that back tire plate underneath the pivots, after running through the link.

    FFF & Tama: Awesome. That's super clean looking - it's on my list. Might have to leave the der until the next cable housing replacement; need to measure. Regardless through the linkage is upcoming.

    I love the gold and blue. Jealous of that.

    Here's the build btw:

    Frame: 2012 Canfield The One
    Rear Shock: Rockshox Vivid Air RC2
    Fork: 2012 Rockshox Lyric 170 DH RC2 1.5 steerer
    Dropper Seat Post: KS Lev 150
    Regular DH Post: Race Face
    Front Wheel: Havoc Carbon 20mm
    Rear Wheel: Mavic EN 821, Hadley Hub - XD Driver 142/12, DT Champion/Spaim
    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Rotors: Shimano RT76 180
    Handlebar: Easton Carbon EC70
    Stem: Truvativ Holzfeller 55mm
    Seat: WTB Silverado
    Grips: Salsa Chillipeppers
    Pedals: Blackspire
    Crankset: XX1
    Bottom Bracket: GXP
    Chain: Sram 11sp
    Cassette: XX1 10-42
    Rear Der: XX1
    Shifters: XX1
    Front Tire: Schwable Hans Dampf trailstar 2.35
    Rear Tire: Schwable Hans Dampf trailstar 2.35

    A few bits maybe to change:
    * cable/hose routing
    * maybe a slightly longer Thomson stem for trail riding
    * not sure if an angleset is avail for full 1.5 steers
    * smaller 1.5 HS spacer
    * replacement LEV cable end
    * change LEV routing - back to Canfield seatpost clamp
    * considering a slightly wider bar but I do like having all my bikes use the same - pending
    * full on suspension adjust (on going)

    I went totally anal with a cost spreadsheet. If anyone is really interested, I can break down actual and retails costs on everything. Might help plan if someone want to approximate a similar build.

    PS: I finally got a chance to ride it around the neighborhood, it pedals way better than I expected - even in the 8'' mode without any suspension adjustment whatsoever. Can't wait for the trails!

    The blue/gold one is from the 2011 thread.

    I had shortened the loop/length on my derailleur cable/housing, in between the last zipetie routing point and the derailleur, but I've noticed that length of cable in between those two points being longer/more looped after riding. Hoping it's not tugging on the line when sinking into the travel.

    There is very little rearward movement with the suspension, but for as much as it moves up and down, I don't see any way that the line is being pulled during suspension travel. (I've dropped all the air out of the shock to check on this as well.)

    I'm wondering if I shouldn't have made it a little longer, but it may just be that I don't pull the zipties all that tight anywhere along the routing, so it may be the line naturally settling into where it's most 'comfortable' with the tension as it bends along the route.

    YA- Thanks for more insight. Checked and I have enough cable/housing to follow suit with a similar routing. Should be very clean and tight.

    Love that Dorado on your bike. Would love to eventually get to a DH dress kit too - for resort days. One thing at a time tho.

    2012 One!!!-img_2310.jpg

    Just a little pic of my bike in the field. Loving it. Pedals better than an 8'' bike ever should. Still working on fit and tune - getting there.
