Awsome! The 9 tooth is killer. What are your going to run as a front ring?
Bling ring? They are finally available again...

Parts I'm using:
Spank Spike Evo 35 w/Hope pro 2 front and Canfield 9t rear hub
X0 Brakes 200mm F/R
X0 short cage rear D
X0 crank with 28t Bling Ring
Answer Protaper DH
Giant Contact DH direct mount stem
Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 tires
Thomson Elite seatpost
Canfield Crampons in purple as soon as they are available
I'm going to try both the CCDB and Vector HLR and see which I like better.
Still deciding on headset
Nice build! My bling ring shipped yesterday too, I was waiting for 3 weeks, so once I have that my One will be ready.

I've weighed everything and think it will be about 32lbs.
Micro drive + 28t Bling + XO = :D
I was a little worried about range, but after racing that combo on a fast course all my worries were left in the dust.
Very reliable hub, very happy with the Micro Drive.
bigcrs - That's great to hear. Can't wait to try it out for myself.
I think my build is going to end up in the 35-36lb range. I'll be interested to see how it climbs, even though I'm setting it up as a DH bike.
Can everyone who has a 2012 One share their crank length and experiences? Thinking of going with 165mm cranks. I tested a Specialized Status earlier today, as it has almost precisely the same geo as the One, and it comes stock with 165mm cranks. I had no issue with them at all, but this was a parking lot test ride, so it would be nice to get feedback from you guys that have been on the trails with the One.
Due to the test ride, however, I did manage to figure out that I want a Large One. Still looking forward to testing the suspension on either one of the bikes Sean and Vin bring down to Seattle, or Eric's build once that is complete. But yeah....no way I'd be a medium, and I really knew this in my heart, but was apprehensive about the wheelbase. The Status had a longer wheelbase in Large (almost 48" I believe), and this only made me happier, haha! I'm a noob, so stability trumps speed, cornering, etc without question. I loved the way the cockpit and bike felt, and though the suspension designs are clearly different, the geo was so similar (reach, effective top tube, seat tube length, bar width, stem length, wheelbase), that I am certain a Large is the way to go. Just need to sort out crank length and decide on color (Black/Blue vs Silver/Black), and I'm set!
Thing you have to remember about cornering, nimbleness etc is that this is a sub 40 pound bicycle. Its not hard to over come stability, which does come into play when its a 240 pound dirt bike. Stability is your friend and I believe contrary to the geometry in XC bikes, it enhances low speed control and ease of control as you have less concerns with balance.
Crankwise, lots of bikes come with shorter cranks, especially in the small sizes. My Pitch had either 170 or 165 and I'm pretty sure thats what I bought to replace it which is what I run on my ONE. You can gain some crank lenght buy using Crampon pedals too while still reducing pedal strikes compared to thick pedals.
im 6", riding a large with 170mm cranks, 40mm stem and 760 mm bars with a 160 mm fox van upfront.
pedaling is awesome when you time it right, i can see how i could go with 165 mm cranks, but im good with 170mm :P
if you wanna pedal in rockgardens, get a 165mm crank with the crampon ultimate pedals.
Got my bling ring! Going to install the cranks, bleed my front brake and throw the rear tire on tonight!
Still waiting on some parts and my wheels to be built, but I had to do something on it, lol.

Part two will have some killer riding segment eh???:thumbsup:
I'm not finished yet, but it's at least starting to look like a bike. Waiting on my rear casette and need to do some cable routing and work. Also need to send the fork off to get an Avalanche cartridge.
Sweet job xpeppyx. I've been holding back but pretty sure I am pulling my 180 off for next year and trying a dual crown on my 12.
Good luck with it!
Yeah xpeppyx... LOVING your black and purple build! The links and Ultimates look SO good together! Great job!
BE sure to send us some riding shots once you get the beast dirty!
XO DH question.
Just got my 28t bling and micro G3. Was curious how you guys like the carbon cranks on your Ones?
Beautiful color combo xpeppyx
Throw a micro guide and you have even more BB clearance!
Loving the skulls on the fork too!
i did a review on my canfield one 2012
Canfield one mountain bike review - YouTube
my first and only review of anything
i kept breaking the XX1 chain, so now I am running a shimano 11 speed chain.
Nice review (and setup)... Ridden my One many times down j-drop and it absolutely slays it every time! ;)

Haven't really had a chance to push the one on that trail yet, still busy fiddling away with my shock and fork, getting close to dialed in now.
rode it pretty cautiously in video.
Good job :thumbsup:
