    @CB: Once the Riot becomes available, what will be the fastest way to get one to Europe (Switzerland)? Order direct from the web store or from the German dealer?

    Hope the Riot comes in an XL. Don't get it, most tall people prefer 29ers yet we're the very ones left out. Sad.

    Colin, you seem pretty active over on the Evil forum (as well as others). Is there anything you dont like about the Following? I could pull the trigger on that, but the pressfit BB throws me off enough to hold out for the Riot.

    Waiting patiently for the Riot, I have a feeling it will be worth it.

    The Evil has been perfect so far. It's fast, efficient and a blast to ride both up and down. A true trail bike. The Riot intrigues me because I've always been an admirer of the Canfield Bros., just not a hardtail tail person. One thing the Evil has proved to me is that shorter is better in terms of chainstays. I do like the threaded BB more, although my Evil has been dead silent so far. More so than that I like coil shocks, can't run one on the Evil.

    I'd like to give the Riot a try as a stablemate to the Evil. For those days when I want to monster truck through rock gardens.

    My favourite insult is the short head tube on XLs. Dear Trek: those 110mm head tubes aren't helping anyone over 6'3". Look it up.

    Also, the trend to super short seat tubes. As much as I appreciate good standover clearance I also don't wan to run my 150mm dropper post beyond its minimum insertion line to get decent leg extension on a bike that's designed to be pedalled uphill.

    I know everyone is super anxious to see all the Riot details and trust us, no one wants this bike out more than us! We are just waiting on time lines from our factory to have a realistic launch date. Once we have that we'll be able launch, turn on pre orders and get you all the goods. I do know our tubes have been cut and we are just waiting on forgings to arrive. Once that happens, we will move to welding and we are hoping for the rest of the process to be fairly quick.

    Thank you guys for your patience, we are really excited to get the Riot in all your hands!

    I'm looking forward to seeing this thing, whatever it is! But I'm still not getting one. I'm all over the EPO after I've made a few additions to my Yelli!

    Cmon, just give us some numbers. Spring is riding season, tax returns are in hand, question is new bike or solid upgrades.

    I just wish we could get some numbers. We don't need a bike in our hands the same day numbers come out, but for the love of god at least tell us what we are all waiting for. That way we know either keep our money to buy the riot or get a different bike or upgrades. Not sure if I understand this style of marketing.

    aye, aye, aye! this bike has been deemed with the proper name fo sho. please bros, won't you just give us the geo? i agree with redneck in the fact that this marketing style is wack. this is going to be an all summer deal, mark my words. there will be delays past said release date, guaranteed. for the next new model release please tell us when you have shipping containers of bikes in bellingham. you know they'll sell out, but what's up with your method to the madness?

    good or bad, their strategy to announce the riot without any further details stalled my decision to buy Evil's Following. but i've got bikes i can ride until Riot details are available...

    I already had ordered my Following when the Riot was announced. Luckily, I have been riding and enjoying it since January.

    That being said, if I were bikeless it would hard to wait on a bike not knowing if it's what I'm after travel and geo wise.

    Of course I'm 99.99% sure it will be badass and that I'll want one

    Prob best to hold off till next year and upgrade my process. I'm sure the XLs will be the last to get built anyway, plus I hate to admit it but looks like lots of killer boost 148 stuff coming out in 2016.

    Do we even know what travel bracket this thing is going to fit into? Assume it's going to be under 140 to slot neatly into their lineup.

    Here's what I'm hoping for!

    1. 120-130mm travel

    2. 450mm reach for size L while still maintaining good standover (in keeping with the epo)

    3. Chainstays <430mm

    4. Internal dropper routing

    5. CCDB inline or debonair shock.

    6. Pricing under $2k

    7. Frame weight under 7.5lbs

    If they make the GEO like the rest of their 29ers this will be my next frame for sure, the rest of the stuff on my wish list would be icing on the cake.

    Request adjustable chainstays. I'm 6'6" and running 430 right now and it just works. Any shorter and my weight would be behind the rear axle at full leg extension. At 430 the bike is still relatively balanced and playful. Options are good.

    Room for proper CCDBA. Rock Shox or CCInline only is a dealbreaker for me.

    Other alloy Canfield frames are slightly more than $2k so as long as the Riot is in the same range I'm happy.

    Frame weight... well the other frames aren't that light but they're tough. I'd rather have it weigh 8lbs and be bomber. Vancouver destroys lesser bikes. Tougher is better. But if it can be tough AND light well that's just awesome.

    130mm+ head tube on the XL. Stacks of spacers and high rise bars are also dealbreakers. Tall people aren't having any problem getting their bars low enough. Just the opposite actually.

    Agreed I'm 6'3" in shoes and hate the stack of spacers under my stem. My mojo HD has a super short head tube.

    I talked wih Chris last night via phone and obviously he wouldn't spill anything on the riot except that he told me to wait for it instead of saving up for the balance. Customer service still blows my mind.

    Sounds like you want a 29" Balance. I think I' after a Yelli Screamy with a little rear squish!

    I think under $2k and 7.5lbs is a reasonable target if we're talking about a 120mm bike. Transition Smuggler is beefy as all hell, has horst link suspension, and is also quite long. It weighs 7.34lbs and costs $1750.

    If the bike comes standard with the DB inline I'd expect a little bump in price and weight. Inline is all you need if the bike is under 140mm. I've gotten the chance to ride both the inline and the original and I think the performance is pretty indestinguishable if they are properly tuned.

    I think we can all agree this speculation is getting pretty old! High time for some info. I've been holding off on a frame purchase for quite a while due to this bike!

    OK, I'll stop if you can answer this simple question, will the XLs be in the cards for the 1st release of frames or will they come later (Not asking for dates)? If later then I'll know to move on with my process updates.

    I do think its interesting to follow the general mood of this thread

    1. First stage was wonder an amazement
    2. Second stage was folks being patient and clearly stoked
    3. Third stage was folks getting antsy for details and slightly annoyed
    4. Forth stage is guys just pissed off and loosing stoke

    Pretty accurate. I think no details by Sea Otter led to # 3 and 4. I was really hoping to hear something by then.

    I agree, but don't forget about step 5.


    5. Saying F it and buying something else.

    True, although for me step 5 is

    5. Saying F it and keep riding what you got.

    Welcome to the instant gratification age, I want it now or im going to cry until my mommy gives it to me. HaHa. The bros are doing the best they can do, they rely on manufactures on the other side of the world as everyone else does these days. I'm sure if they could speed things up they would have the bike in your hands already! Their bikes are always top quality and worth the wait.

    I think people are just antsy because Canfield started the thread and teased us with a prototype image over four months ago and hasn't provided further details since. I'm willing to wait for the bike, I just need to know if it's something worth waiting for. I just need a few numbers to make my decision!

    No sense getting upset about it though. Perfectly happy on my hardtail for now!

    I was just messin around, Im dying to learn more about this bike myself. I think they had good intentions releasing info based on what the manufactures told them, and then S*#t happened they couldn't control is all.

    As long as it's a great bike, I'm fine waiting.

    Of course I have a bike to ride presently, so that helps my patience.

    At this point pretty much everyone on these forums should be used to having to wait for new product to arrive from any company building in Taiwan/China. I think folks are just disappointed about the tease with no info to even clarify what they are waiting for.

    Like I said above I am happy to ride what I got for now.

    If the shock is 200x57 then its like the balance, 160mm is a pretty burly 29r, Looking at the pics its as stated before its a CC Inline with a more direct rear shock mount, possibly like the HD3.

    By the way that EPO is pretty rad.

    Agreed with #1-4 and the should have had a prototype or geometry numbers for Sea Otter. The Brothers should have held off on the January announcement until they had good estimate of the delivery date. Spring is when riders get stoked about building a new rig, and they want start building and riding by spring and summer. Also, managing buyer expectations is rule #1 as it relates to good CS. I hope they provide some cursory details early, there is huge demand for this type of bike.

    It's not a matter of wanting the bike right now or else. It is more of a matter it has been months since the announcement, with zero info other then I promise it is awesome. No travel info, geo, sizing, weight. .... nothing. So if I am looking for something to compare to a enduro then if this a 110 mm bike then I don't need to wait. But if it is a 150mm then I would like to know so I can't consider it. You would think they at least have numbers, hell the Chinese 10 year old kid building the frame knows more then us at this point.

    Plus this thread was started by someone in the know at Canfield. What did they think would happen?

    Thank you all for your patience.
    We did not intend for you all to take the name of this bike so seriously. But, when the masses Riot- you must do something.

    But to be fair- we have seen our products inspire other companies to follow. Thus, we were holding the details of this frame as tight and as long as possible. Not to give them time before we were able to have this frame out in the market place.

    This bike is special, very special. Lance even told us that he didn't want a 2015 Jedi for the season, because he wanted to just ride the riot all year.

    Details will be released in the morning.

    I'm in taiwan until these are finished and on a boat. I will be giving production updates as we go.

    You guys are doing it the right way IMO. I don't blame you for playing your hand close to your chest. In this volatile and fickle market, those whom truly innovate should be rewarded with the spoils of their labor.

    Bravo.

    Good Morning!

    Canfield Bothers Riot
    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS-canfield-brothers-riot.jpg

    Ever since our first experience on the wagon-sized wheels, we always loved the 29er concept; It just screams speed and charges through everything! Uphill, downhill—these wheels are fast. The downside is that most 29ers just weren't as fun to ride. In 2011, we launched the Yelli Screamy, the first 29er with short chainstays. Playful and nimble, the Yelli changed people's perception of the handling characteristics of 29ers. Here we are in 2015 and the Canfield Brothers Riot pushes the bar the further than it’s ever been pushed in the 29er full suspension world, boasting the most aggressive 29er geometry to hit a pedal bike. Coupling 140 millimeters (5.5 inches) of patent pending Canfield Balance Formula suspension with the slack-and-low geometry Canfield Brothers is known for and radically short 414-millimeter (16.3-inch) chainstays, the Riot is the most fun and aggressive full-suspension 29er to hit the trail.

    Looks pretty sweet! Only thing I'm trying to get my head around is the 76 STA. Never seen or ridden anything that steep. For big guys, I'm wondering if even with the saddle slammed back as far as it will go if it is going to be possible to get the knee from being in front of the pedal spindle. I know some like that, but for others it messes with the knee on long rides.

    Vin: are those reach numbers correct? Just wondering because they're about one size up compared to the One and Balance reach.

    I wonder if the steepness is optimized for shorty crank arms and fast turn over vs slow/high torque.

    But holy JEEBUS those chain stays are short...over 1.5" shorter than my Tallboy LT...and relocated to the reach for about the same amount! I could run a 30mm stem and this frame will STILL have longer overall reach than my bike! HAH!

    Ok, that answers the next bike, and when questions.

    also, thanks for not naming it 'yelly squishy'. That would have been awful.

    Bro's,

    Amid all the questions and complements, I have some of my own to add. What type of tire clearance does the bike have. My my biggest question is will it B+ ? I am loving the B+ on my Yelli and am hoping that this bike will allow me the same joys

    Thanks and great job!

    I'm assuming the raw finish is clearcoated? Decals under the clear coat or removable?

    We are doing a "factory raw" finish on the Riot. Full raw with stickers. You can leave it with its natural patina, or polish it with a fine steel wool for a mirror like finish.

    Our website server has been a bit overwhelmed today, that is a great sign that news of the Riot is spreading like crazy!

    I wanted to try to answer to your questions here in a single post:

    For those of you inquiring about a Riot frame only, (no shock), please email us directly. We spent the last year testing the Inline and Air CS shocks and want to be sure if you are sourcing something else that the performance will be on par with our those shocks to give you the best possible performance on the Riot.

    Projected weight of the Riot is around 7lbs for the frame, plus 355g Inline and 531g for the Air CS.
    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS-inline.jpg
    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS-air-cs.jpg

    The Riot has gobs of tire clearance. We are running a Maxxis Minion 2.5 and have plenty of clearance for the good ole PNW mud. As far as 27.5+, the Riot is optimized to be the most fun 29er on the market. We don't have 27.5+ experience on this bike, however the extra 1/2” of BB drop would concern me.

    Bike looks great, reach numbers look perfect but the Top Tube length looks short as compared to my XL process 111 (631mm Riot vs. 661mm process). Would these numbers indicate I'd need to run a longer stem (for seated riding) or should I only be looking at the reach number? Reach looks great at 476 vs. 485.

    Look at reach, top tube numbers aren't reliable for fit as they can vary greatly due to seat tube angle.

    Unless you look at effective top tube length.

    Yup I was looking at ETT length and reach. How would this translate?
