    You swapping parts or just going full build?

    I just built a 2017 L Riot with i29 carbon rims and a Maxxis Aggressor 2.5WT in the rear and there's LOADS of clearance.

    Not the best picture, but I was concerned. I shouldn't have been.

    First ride today, but I don't expect any trouble

    They keep growing. My aggressor 2.5 is now bigger than my minion dhf on the front. Here is a 2.3 high roller 2 and a 2.5 aggressor comparison. On 30 mm inner fatties sl wheels. It's pretty close on the drive side. Mud is a no go.

    If need be, Ill rotate the 2.5 aggressor up front when the minion 2.5 needs replacement and get a 2.3 or 2.4 for the back.

    Digging that new Aggressor, will have to try it sooner rather than later, thanks for sharing.

    I've been meaning to post this since it's appropriately nerdy and pretty rad to boot.

    Start off, I'm a huge fan of the transformer-like qualities of my now nearly two year old riot. I rotate three shocks including a Jade, CCDBa and short stroke Fox RP23 all of which give the bike a slightly different personality, all them fun.

    Recently I built a 27.5 rear wheel and shod it with a 2.6 NN. The static results are about .25" decrease in BB height and 0.5deg slacker HA. I adjusted my saddle angle, but frankly, didn't really have to. The dynamic results are as expected, more fun in the turns with no measurable differences elsewhere. I suppose if I had a power meter I would see a slight down tick in rolling efficiency on pavement, but I'd also have to compare with a 29" NN to make a fair comp.

    Anyway, fun times are continuing to be had on this bike.

    One more thing, the raw frame cleans up quite nicely with a bit steel wool. I'd say it's a one beer, zero f-bombs kind of job to get decent results. No power tools needed.

    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS

    Canfields contact us email link isnt working for me so figured Id ask here. Im 510.5 with a 31 inseam and would love to purchase one of the clearance frames but not sure if a medium would be too small for me. Currently on a large Yelli. Bike before that was an 18.5 Fuel Ex that fit great. Thanks!

    My 2016 large full build is for sale. PM for build options I have a few different sets of wheels and bars and brakes from alloy to carbon that can change the price.

    Agreed. Im 58 with a 31 inseam and I really wish I went with the Large over the Medium. The Medium is snug, and to be honest the longer wheelbase on the Large would have worked much better for me. Regardless, still love the bike.

    I waited till I had a chance to throw a leg over one and Im glad I did or I would have got a medium and been very unhappy ☹️

    Thanks for the info on sizing guys, glad I asked before buying a medium. Id love to wait on a carbon Riot but Im currently bikeless so I may go back towards the Yeti SB5.5 again.

    One more wheel to build, get a chain, trim the steer tube, fine tune and then hurry up and wait for the snow to melt. Thinking of swapping the stem for a black one and toying around with the idea of getting metallic silver decals for the fork.

    April/May feels like an eternity away...

    I don't think you damage anything with the application, but you'll make it harder to remove later. If you do make sure to use in work hex tools.

    My lower link did the same thing I took it out, put s decent coating of grease (I used M2000 calcium grease on everything but suspension internals) and have no problems.

    The mixed wheel size idea has always intrigued me. Being a short guy who loves the 9er roll over.

    New Riot build

    I am new to Canfield and I am kind of surpriced to see quite a few new builds with the Riot/Toir frames. I also see many that have moved on to other bikes. Makes me wonder how the geometry, suspension and tech holds up in 2018.

    Anyway, I just finished my build. Got a second hand frame/fork in super condition - shock/fork Avalanche tuned. Rest of the build is composed of new parts- non carbon.

    I am pretty stoked about my new ride, but it will be a while before I really get to shred and know for sure I did a good decision...

    Personally, I'm not buying but I'm always shopping...

    The Riot is still seriously competitive 3 years later. Some bikes are a little slacker, some a little longer reach and there are a whole lot more players in the mid travel ripper segment.

    All of them have longer rear ends, sometimes much longer rear ends, which is sometimes touted as a selling point... I like my short rear end, really a defining characteristic of the Riot for me.

    Some of those bikes also more freely 27.5+ compatible... kind of cool, kind of trendy, probably sub-optimizes the bike overall.

    The only thing the bike is 'really' missing is Boost. I'm torn if I'd like to see the new one go boost or give it the finger and go straight to super boost...

    The one thing the bike actually needs is a one piece upper link.

    I've built two with no issues on any component interfaces - first head tube seemed tight, but not a problem. Brake mounts have always been functionally perfect.

    FIRST the black and gold is awesome. The Riot is a great trail bike and as mentioned holds its own in the mid travel category. I have an Avalanche suspension as well, and can tell you it will keep up with or do better than a lot of 160mm 27.5 bikes with the Avy stuff.

    Some of us want a second bike to go with the Riot, or an updated model, that takes over where the Riot comes up short.
    So you've got a great bike that's new to you. I'd ride it and not worry too much. Most the people who are happy with the bike are too busy riding it to complain.

Now it feels much more like a well composed DH sled. I do long for more travel, but the fork offset change really helped the bike at high speeds a ton.
    Getting ready to buy a fork for my Riot build and leaning towards a 46mm offset. I know the Bros designed the bike around 51mm but I like the idea of a more stable ride. Looking through the thread there are few that have 46mm offset and seem to like it. Anyone with a solid vote (and experience) one way or another? Any factors that should be considered when deciding?

    Thanks!

    I wrote the bike with both offsets.
    First I had a Pike 140 RTC3 with 46mm. Now I have a Lyrik 140 RTC3 with 51mm.
    It was a good decision to change to the Lyrik, but I am not sure if it is based on the offset.
    But if you buy a new fork I always would chose a 51mm offset. There are no stability disadvantages because of the longer offset.

    I agree. I'm not understanding how going from 51 to 46 makes it more stable. If anything, that shortens the wheelbase which is already the main issue with stability at speed.

    Less offset increases trail, which slows down the steering, providing a more stable feel. Agreed it does shorten the wheelbase, so there are definitely a lot of factors in balance.

    ok.....



    *****What is trail?

    The distance that the center of the tire's contact patch falls behind the imaginary point that the steering axis*(center of the fork's head tube)*passes through the ground. This is what causes the bike's front wheel to self-straighten when it is moving forward. More trail firms up the steering and adds straight-line stability. Less lightens the steering pressure at the handlebar and gives the bike a more nimble feel. Too far in either direction makes the bike difficult to control.****

    The reduced fork offset will bring in the front wheel closer to the rider, allowing for easier weighting of the front wheel when climbing or cornering. I think this is an idea better suited for super slack 29ers, to decrease the feeling the front wheel is hanging out so far in front of you. I think the Transition Sentinel is designed around the shorter offset. But the Riot is not a really slack bike, so I don't know how the shorter offset would feel. Ultimately, it probably comes down to a personal choice, and you'd have to try both to see how it feels.

    The 51 offset was done when the HTAs we're 71 with so much weight on the front tire and 29er tires have a long contact patch. The bikes were reluctant to turn. With HTAs in the 60s, the higher offsets can cause overstear.

    Very true, but on the flip side, you don't want a sluggish steering bike either. There is a balance, and I think it's up to the individual riding the bike. So far, the Riot with the standard 51mm has felt just right to me..

    I agree. I'm on size small and ride with 51 on my home trails. Since they aren't that fast because they're very twisty with lots of trees. For the trails that push the Riots abillity In speed and chunk, I'll be getting another bike and depending on how it feels, ill decide on offset.

    If only I had the financial float to experiment with both. With my last 2 bikes I had two forks for each, both with different offsets and in both instances, the shorter one was far better. That being said, is hard to argue with the designers intent; I think I'll start with 51 and see how it goes. If I switch it up I'll report back. Maybe this will motivate me to nerd out and do some timed runs.

    I can't imagine the 46 vs 51 offset plays a bigger role with speed confidence than say a coil vs air rear shock. A 51 offset fork paired with a 11.6 or other coil has to feel more composed at speed than a 46 degree offset with air shock rear. Right?

    It's mostly a feeling thing, like the starring feel between a 35mm stem and a 50/60mm stem. There is a tad more traction since the wheel is closer and has more weight in the center, but it can cause more of a tuck in feeling at loss of traction. So if you don't have a slack HTA it might feel/act worse.

    I haven't experimented with it on the Riot yet, but on a bike with 68 it tucked too much.

    It defiantly won't take the place of a poor acting suspention.

    Anyway, I just finished my build. Got a second hand frame/fork in super condition - shock/fork Avalanche tuned. Rest of the build is composed of new parts- non carbon.

    I am pretty stoked about my new ride, but it will be a while before I really get to shred and know for sure I did a good decision...

    This post is killing me - I really miss my black bike. When I killed it, I got a replacement in raw...just not the same. I had more gold on mine...next mountain ripper is going to be black for sure, but probably another couple seasons on the raw Riot, barring any other unforseen disasters...

    Anyone know what the shortest steerer tube I could get away with on a small is? I can afford the frame, not so much a new fork

    Canfield says the head tube is 105mm; figure 20mm for the headset and 40 for the stem. So around 165.

    Thanks to Cerberus75 I've come to the conclusion that I'm 1cm short, even with a ZS bottom cup. Oh well.

    Depending on the fork and company, you might be able to get a new tube pressed in, or a crown and steering tube only much cheaper than a new fork.

    Vegard, you could look at the CC Slamset top or a Ragley Stubbing stem. Combined they offer a 16mm reduction in stack height.

    Forgive me if this question has been answered somewhere, but I'm toying with the idea of picking up another Riot/Toir frame and continuing to experiment with a number of things. I suppose my continued interest in experimentation was stoked by some of the Geometron ideas... I'm curious what the results might be if an 1.5-2.0 angleset was used to reduce the head angle, then a reduced offset fork was used in conjunction. Maybe I'm thinking in too simple of terms, but thought that might be a nice combo, especially if I'm running a size up to broaden the wheelbase?

    Also, do we know if running an angleset would void a warranty? The proposed angleset/fork offset combo would be running with 125ish mm of rear travel and 130 up front, which would technically ease a little force exerted on the head tube vs a 140 or 150mm fork I would think.

    Sorry, no answer on your questions, but: I was thinking about something like this a few months ago, similar reasons: interest in geometron + riot close out sale. One thing that held me back was the seat tube length when sizing up, I don't think that would've worked for me. But if you're willing to cut it....

    130mm fork will bring the HTA to 67 drop the BB almost 5mm an slacken the STA even more. If you slack the HTA more the STA will get even more steep. Not something of want on a shorter travel bike.

    Yeah, aside from the STA issue, your proposed combo of reducing HTA, shorter fork, and reduced offset would make for a much shortened wheelbase. I don't know how to calculate how much shorter, but the bike would be more nervous at high speeds for sure.

    You guys both miss the part about his angleset? I imagine running 2 degrees slacker would offset all that wheelbase and seat tube angle part. BB height will still be within acceptable height I think also.

    I think that seeing as youre looking to run a shorter stoke might as well run a 190x50 rear shock. Using the shorter rear shock would also drop the rear. This would help to keep the angles in check. I actually prefer the lower BB height when running B+ tires (but like the 29r roll over and speed). It would be very similar height. With the reduced travel the sag value would be less also having less effect on BB height when sagged.

    A headset that slakens the HTA and travel stays the same, or get lower will stepen the STA. Since most people ride shorter travel on peddly rolling terrain 77 isn't the best. More than that won't be fun.

    Hey guys, so I think I could have laid out the projected changes a little better. Here's an attempt to concisely lay out the project idea:

    - Upsize from a L to an XL (because I like longer bikes and think I might be OK with the taller seat tube and if not, would entertain cutting it)

    - Run and angleset of some kind to reduce hta 1.5-2 degrees (recommendations on which angleset to look at would be welcomed and whether I'm risking damage or voiding warranty by doing this, likely with a 130mm fork which should reduce load on the head tube compared to a 140 or 150 fork)

    - Possibly employ a reduced offset fork (46)

    - Almost certainly going with a 27.5 rear and 29 front. May play with a 2.6ish 27.5" rear and a relatively more aggressive tread 2.3-2.5 29" up front.

    - Running a rear shock with stock eye to eye, but a shorter stroke, both to reduce travel and accommodate a 27.5 rear. I believe this combo would keep sagged BB height in a really safe range while still lowering suspended ride height.

    I think those are the main things.


    Just for fun, here is a picture of my last Riot, which I didn't get to ride with this setup before I was forced to sell:

    The smaller rear wheel will put the STA back to a reasonable place. If my math is correct you'll get 67 HTA and 13" BB with the mixed wheel size.

    After a quick ride today, I think I need to swap out the 35mm stem for a 50mm. Also, when my shop built my front wheel, they installed the tire backwards. Still needs some minor tweaking (fine-tuning the shifting and suspension set up and needs a brake bleed), but I actually rode her around a bit and I'm beyond stoked for the this summer.

    Sorry for some reason I thought you were increasing the hta with the angleset. You got some crazy Franken-geometry going on!

    Buy the Riot, hang the idea of mucking with the geo, get off the forums, and just ride the damn thing! I had an angleset, and then i realized that no amount of messing around with shit was going to make me go faster, i just had to let go of the brakes and be willing to endure some low-side slide outs. Tires can do more than most will are willing to try.

    Going to be listing my Riot soon, but PM if anyone is looking for a size L. Could be a complete build or frame with some parts depending on needs.

    Frames or complete is listed on pinkbike now. Will list here as soon as a I get a couple minutes.

    Installed a 1 degree Works Components angle headset and liking it so far. It took out some playfulness and added a little wheel flop on slow steep climbing that I will have to get use too, but made it noticeably more stable/less twitchy at speed.

    I have done it. I cannot remember which thread I got the template from.

    You can make one yourself very easily with a flimsy plastic binder. It does not need to wrap on the side either if you dont want it to. That will complicate the shape and form you want. If you just make a tapered rectangle that will fit down the middle you can secure it to the X brace and it should good to go.

    I just cut up one of those AssSavers that clip to the seat. Had one laying around. Trim to fit with scissors and cut some square holes for zip ties. With B+ tires it can be a bit loose. With 29s I need to zip the top and bottom better so it doesnt catch the tire. Doesnt keep everything out but helps a lot nonetheless.

    Damn iPhone keeps rotating my pictures.
