    2012 One!!!

    "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 !"

    And so it starts...

    I was wondering when this thread was going to start! But man you gotta throw in more pics!

    I really like the numbers of the new The One. I reckon this would be a killer hard hitting enduro frame built with a 170mm fork ,zero stack and the shorter shock option.

    So awesome man I can not wait to see it, 2012 is going to be a sweet season.

    I pre-ordered mine as well a few weeks ago when I noticed the purple links

    I hope to have 4 Canfields by the end of the season...

    I took those shots on sunday at the factory. They will be arriving in the US in about a month. No full builds yet, just finished assembling them and putting them through a final inspection. We have a couple that are air shipping so you'll see a few pics in the coming weeks. Colors turned out great! So stoked to build one up with a AM build and one with a DH build.

    Is there a reason why the welds extend beyond the gusset? I am not trolling. I have just not seen that before.

    The welds extend to push the stresses out beyond the end of the gussets. Most cracks will start to form right at the end of the gusset because it's so stiff there. By welding past a little, it tapers the stiffness out into the tubing and removes the abrupt transision.

    Most motorcycle company's do this in high stress areas.

    I need a beer mug for myself with these strong welds.

    Jokes aside... Sean helped me sort out a shock for my frame and blessed my part spec today. Great service and can't wait for my first Canfield.

    We just received our first couple of air shipped One frames and we'll be releasing the official pics shorty, but we wanted to post up this teaser...

    For 2012, we stiffened the frame, tweaked the geo and dropped .25 lbs compared to the 2011's. Sean's medium frame came in at 8lbs flat.

    Here's the weights with a few different shock options:
    X Fusion Air - just a hair over 9 lbs
    Vivid Air - 9.1lbs
    Elka with a ti spring - 9.72 lbs
    Fox RC4 - 9.95 lbs

    Enjoy!!!

    im more interested in an AM\XC setup on the one, rear air shock and 6.5" travel,

    how good does it pedal uphill compared to 6" bikes?

    Sizing on this frame is a bit of personal preference. The TT is 1/2'' longer than the JEDI. It seems most folks 5'8'' - 6' prefer a medium. Over 6', a large seems perfect !

    Vin is going to have his setup with a 170mm fork and it should be sub 30lbs. when he's done.

    The travel question gets asked a lot, basically this frame in 8'' mode pedals better than a lot of frames with 1/2 the travel. This is a NO BS statement ! This bike is magic !!!

    If it's anything like the 2011 and in my experience, it's the best peddling 7"/8" bike on the market. I run mine with a Elka and can peddle it anywhere, the only thing holding it back is me.

    I can't attest to the shorter shock setup but if is going to be an air shock it'll only peddle better. If you happen to live in Vancouver BC and ride a large, let me know and you can give my One a bash.

    Hey guys, I just posted up a image gallery on our blog of Sean's One, featuring a few different shock options we will be offering this year. We didn't have any Cane Creeks in stock when we shot these, (can't wait to see the black frame with all the CC gold goodness.) I am super sorry for the delay, I'll be MUCH more on top of things when my move to Bellingham is all dialed in.

    The extra headtube gusset is awesome...a little Jedi-ish. Also digging the rear triangle with stylish brace. Man, too bad I already have a '11 and love it too much. Whoever gets the '12 is super lucky!

    Hey bigcrs, thanks for the offer:-) wish i lived somewhere near that area, im from Israel, so im going on blind with the One as a second pair.

    I currently have a 12' Jedi after owning a 08 jedi:-)

    Im looking for a second pair to serve me as an all around not dh bike, meaning, sometimes i would have to xc pedal for 40km but sometimes ill hit local am and fr stuff.

    As you can see in my sig i have a 08 sx trail for this now, but its not cutting it in the pedalling area, so im thinking of a 5" bike.

    But if the One with air shock could pedal like a 6" bike, i would go for it and not with enduro/stumpjumper stuff.

    The only problem is getting the One on "blind" (in hebrew it sounds better heh)

    I know that nothing bad can come from canfield bros, already on my buying list are the crampon ultimates!

    fauxfreeride, I have an '11 66 RC3 Evo Ti on my One and once I figured the right air preload assist for me...it is awesome. Would image the '12 version is at least as good if not better. I'm biased when i say you can't go wrong with the 66 unless you are really trying to shave weight. Still, it's not that bad in that dept.

    Running the marz 66 on mine paired with the rockskox vivid air. Running about 5 psi air assist in the fork. The bike feels very balanced and smooth when going thru its travel. Was going to put a talas on it but asked myself why??? Stayed with the 66 and am very happy

    The ONE pedals INSANELY well for a 8'' bike. Actually, its the best of any 8'' bike I've ever tried. That alone is a big reason why its becoming a "racers" DH bike. The only bob from the bike happens in the fork, yet when you hit a bump, root or tiny impact......BAM your shock if FULL open!!!

    With the different shock options and travel settings, its a very versatile machine thats at home just about anywhere!

    The ONE also jumps really well and is a very balanced when cornering. The TT length is about 1/2'' longer then the JEDI for those folks who have ridden both. I ride a medium JEDI, but I really enjoy the slightly longer TT on the med "The ONE".

    Ben's bike is around 36 lbs...It pedals even LIGHTHER ! He also has the super trick 9t hub laced to those ENVE hoops!

    The changes in the rear triangle to stiffen up the back of the bike was VERY successful ! Stiffer and lighter! This bike arcs corners like carving skis !!

    I just got a bunch of ONE frames in stock. They look great, I have been very busy getting all the patient pre-orders out ! If your on my list, your frame is a coming !!!

    Thanks

    +1 what Sean said. At one point I had a fox 40 on my One and decided to give it a go. After the fun DH bits, was climbing out of the forest and got a lot of "holy Sh!t" looks as I was able to easily climb it like a normal AM bike. Suffice to say, the One kicks freak'n a$$ for just about everything if you could only have "one" bike!!!

    I've climbed some unbelievable steep technical stuff with the one in 8 in. mode. I'm going to get some guys with XC and All-mountain bikes to see if they can climb the same stuff. I'll be surprised if they can match it. I'll post some videos one of these days to prove it.

    Got mine Tuesday, built it up, rode it around the block, now it's in a box going on vacation.
    those links are purple as... something. Old school; party like it's 1991!


    crash replacement for my '09, parts that look out of place, like the fork and the lack of dropper post, that's why. Anyone want to trade a 31.6 reverb for a 30.9?

    Nice looking bike and yes, I have a 30.9 Reverb that I am shimming to use on my new bike. Send me a message and lets get something worked out!
