    As we have moved The One info over to the "archive frames" portion of our site, I had to create one geo chart for the 2011-2013 versions. In reality every year had slight changes in geo due to how this frame was being built and ridden. The 2011's were lower and slacker and in 2013, we made a few tweaks make the frame AM friendlier. One of these changes was adding 5mm to the headtubes to raise the BB.

    Hope that helps!

    ah, great.
    I'm totally ok with a more AM friendly geo.

    can I find somewhere the complete and correct geometry table for the 2013?

    Been in Big Bear for two days on the Canfield One, doing DH on Friday and AM all day today. It is my favorite bike, ever!
    (Notice my 303 is still clean)

    How crazy would it be to put a Lefty Supermax 160 on my The One?
    I'm now riding a Marz 350 with 650b front, so travel would remain the same, just a few mm shorter in front height.

    I've a coil rear shock and sometimes feel the bile like 'underforked' in fast rock gardens. Would the probably stiffer Lefty be an upgrade or maybe I should better look for a longer travel fork (Fox36 or Metric)?
    truth is I've always loved lefty forks...

    Are you sure the problem is fork stiffness and not setup; did you play with faster/slower rebound settings?

    I'd be most worried about the effect on BB height. I have a 180 Lyrik (special version) with 165mm cranks and still have occasional pedal strikes. If there's no change in BB height and you're not currently experiencing pedal strikes, then why not?

    I know pretty much nothing about lefty forks, but my experience with changing A to C on the One.... I went from a Lyrik 170 coil to a '15 Fox 36 Float 160 travel for 27.5 (but running 26" wheel). The Fox is 5-6mm shorter than the Lyrik but I couldn't tell. The larger offset on the Fox 27.5 actually made the steering a little quicker and took nearly a pound off the front. My BB sits at 13 1/8 and I've learned to deal with it with 170 cranks, occasional pedal strikes but mostly learned to time them. The low BB is so nice for stability and corners.
    My one (2012) is my everyday trail/AM bike, I run it in 180 mode in the back. Good luck on your endeavor, glad to hear people are still loving them as much as I do mine.
