    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS

    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS

    Happy New Year everyone! We are super excited about 2015 as we have a few projects that will be coming into fruition in the upcoming months. As a preview into what we have been working on, we silently leaked few shots of Chris riding the Riot prototype in an edit we filmed with snowboard legend, Jeremy Jones. It was released last week by Teton Gravity Research in Jeremy Jones's webisode, Hitting the Road.

    Thank you for everyone that helped us out on this edit, esp. my good friend Joshy Clements for putting this together! Jeremy is even riding one of our Balance demos at 3:04 in the background. As as snowboarder for over 20+ years, filming this edit was a dream for me. Jeremy is about as down to earth as they come and SO supportive to small brands such as Canfield Brothers. Thanks Jeremy... YOU ROCK!

    Yes! I'm super stoked. I've been trying to find a FS 29er for the past few weeks, and I'm willing to wait to hear more about this one. Great company, great people and great bikes! Currently riding a Nimble 9.

    Currently the Banshee Prime and the Transition Smuggler make up my "list." Can't wait to learn more about this. If it's half as fun as my Nimble it'll knock the others WAY off my list.

    I assume you mean Phantom, but I'm with you. The Phantom really opened my eyes to how much fun a bike with the right geometry could be. Much more important than travel alone.

    I do have a Smuggler on order as it seems to take that philosophy a step further.

    Bros, please don't stick with 135/142mm dropouts, put in some nicely wide 150mm or the new boost 148mm instead... those aggressive 29ers definitely need a stiffer wheel out back.
    In my Yelli I had to go with a singlespeed hub (with 7 cogs in it) to have a wide spacing and a strong wheel...

    I agree with savo.Bost 148mm for stiffness and should help to provide a bit more clearance for 3.0 width tires.Also seems like fork makers are gonna go 15x110mm for more stiffness and tire clearance.

    I'd like it to have a front derailleur like the Balance, does it have one in the vid? Wonder how much travel, pretty sure everything else will be dialed...

    mmm I don't think we need a front derailleur in a 2015 trailbike, I'd hope they ditch it and take all the freedom to design the best rear end that a 29er can have.

    It's nice to change the suspension kinematics and have more range, didn't seem to be a problem on the Balance

    maybe, but I think it's nicer to have the suspension cinematics designed around one front chainring size only, and to have freedom to design the linkage and the rear triangle without having to take a front derailleur into account. that would probably help to keep the chainstay shorter too.

    Doh! I somehow missed this post and stumbled on to it now, just as I was about to throw all my eggs in Evil's new 29er basket.

    It's gonna be pretty tough to wait until Spring to hear more...

    Someone correct me if this would not work.... But could you utilize the same bolt on front derailleur mount set up from the Nimble 9??

    Thus allowing a clean seat tube for the 1x kids and a proper 2x/3x set up for old school folks and people with huge climbs.

    2015 Canfield Brothers Riot 29er FS

    Posted this in the evil thread, so I thought I might as well post it here as well. Interested to hear opinions from anyone who has ridden both. Canfield guys feel free to jump in with anything you can tell us about the riot suspension feel.


    Anyone who has ridden a DELTA bike and also a Canfield One / Balance want to weigh in on the pros & cons of the two systems? Very interested in both the Following and the upcoming Riot (read: Yelli Squishy) from Canfield. But no chance whatsoever that I will get to demo either. Especially interested in the pedaling / climbing characteristics as I am pretty confident that both will descend very well.

    Not really. Remember that you only have one front chainring that is usually 28-32T.

    So your "big-big" ring combo is like 42+30 = 72T.

    For 2x10 big-big is something like 36/36 IIRC, so about the same number of total teeth giving you a similar length chain and still a medium-ish cage derailleur.

    The big benefit of 1x IMO is you save weight, complexity, and maintenance by removing the FD and front shifter. And still get a very similar gearing range.

    Also remember that 1x doesn't necessarily mean 1x11 with a big rear cog. For the cost of losing just a little low range, I ran 1x10 for a year or two with a 28T front and a 36t 10 speed cassette. With this combo I was running a short cage derailleur and the same or shorter length chain.

    Just depends on what gearing your legs + terrain need.

    My Process 111 might be more fun than my N9, but both bikes are so much fun to ride. Lots of good 29er FS bikes to choose from this year, and they all look like they're cut from the same cloth: Process 111, Codeine, Phantom, Behemoth, Smuggler, Following, and now the Riot. I doubt you'd go wrong with any of them.

    I hear you. I love Kona, as that was my first "real" bike that I put a ton of miles on (Cinder Cone). But I am neurotic in that I hate noise and love working on bikes myself without any funky tools, and I love reusing parts from my parts bin since I have some nice stuff. It's for that reason I can't go Process or any other PFBB bike as long as there's a viable alternative with the true "standard."

    Great name. Just when I was really getting serious about a Balance. This is especially sweet as I already have the 140 29 Pike and wheels just waiting on a new frame (although I was waiting to sell them in an effort to fund the Balance). Great...now can't sleep again.

    curious if the Riot is competition for E29, Trailfox, WFO, Prime, Lunchbox, etc, or if it's intended to step into the octagon with the Process, Smuggler, Phantom, Behemoth, Following, etc?

    Ghost bikes is also releasing a bike called "Riot" for 2015. I wonder how this will play out? (solo/5010)

    I don't know there you guys ride......but for high-altitude biking in the Alps with long and really steep climbs - good luck if you haven't got legs and lungs of Superman!
    I have seen a couple of 1*11 riders above 2500m and still a steep climb to go - well, they didn't look that relaxed anymore! :=)

    I wonder if this bike will feature the coming 148mm rear axle standard?... Sucks from a compatibility standpoint, but seems like a good idea on most if not all technical fronts. This is the type of bike that seems like it would stand the most to gain.

    Also, can we run a Lefty on it?

    And if I'd like to run a 35mm stem for ENDURO fit, should I get the XL or the XXL size? I am 5'-8".

    Post #8 was funny.

    Post #13 was better: Per KillingtonVT, it sounds like Riot will have between 120-130mm rear travel, can handle 120-140mm fork, have approx 68* HA, and approx 17" chainstays.

    Problem, there are some reasonable, short term, deals here in the UK on a Kona Process 111. I'm pretty close to pushing the button.

    But I don't want to do this. I'm a Canfield fanboi, I already have a Yelli and a N9.

    Help me out here Bros. Why should I wait for the Riot, what can you tell me?

    Personally i reckon it's worth the wait. YS owner myself. Dealing with Canfield is a breeze as well even if I'm residing on the other side of the globe.

    I don't speak for the bros or anyone but myself, but... if you are considering a single pivot kona and the deal is tempting you might not be a Canfield suspension kind of guy.

    Based on all the previous Canfiled suspension I'd say it's unlikely the Riot will compete with a bike like the Process on price, even with the Kona at full retail. I'd also say if it rides anything like the One that the suspension will be in a whole other league. IMO if you can't tell or are indifferent to the difference between a single pivot and a multi-link like Canfield uses, I see no reason to go with the more complicated and expensive system. If, on the other hand, you appreciate the nuances of suspension that works really, really well and are willing to pay for it, I'd hold out for the Riot.

    Have you ridden a modern Kona? I owned a Process for a bit and was quite impressed with its suspension performance relative to most other more complex and expensive suspension systems.

    If they would put a couple more inches of seat tube on the frame so I didn't have to run a mile of post, I'd probably buy a 111 today.

    That was going to be my next question - how different can the Riot be compared to the Process 111 and other "short travel progressive" frames?

    The angles and numbers are likely to be ballpark comparable, so it comes down to suspension I guess.

    I know nothing about suspension (now) and don't own an FS. But I'm willing to be educated.

    Might as well just go 150 x 12, no, vs stocking another axle standard of a rear wheel.

    Yeah, yet another standard sucks, but 150 x 12 can be a bit of a pain like my 135x10 thru-bolt wheels were with the axle ends not being captured in a recess in the dropout....Not a huge deal, I know, but I did cuss that setup on more than one occasion putting the rear wheel back in.

    That's not the kind of bike I'd be looking for....I wouldn't want that wide a Q-Factor since I'd probably never put 4 or 5" tires in it. But pushing things out enough to be able to have short stays & plenty of 29er tire clearance, which seems fundamental to Canfield's appeal, plus the ability to run 650b+ and maintain a normal Q-factor seems pretty cool.

    I'm bringing this up not because I'm advocating it necessarily, I'm just starting to see all the chatter and I'm wondering if this is really going to become the new defacto standard.. Or is it going to be like Giant's overdrive steerers, and not really stick across all brands. Obviously Trek and some of the other bigs are doing it.... if smaller builders like Canfield are planning to do it too that tells me that it's going to become the new normal and maybe I'll slow down on plans for more 142x12 wheels.

    157x12 then, same hub as a 150mm but with axle ends captured in a dropout recess.

    I think the 150/157mm option to be my preferred, but the new boost 148mm will be good too. Just ditch the 135/142mm please... stiffer rear weel is a need for this sort of 29er bikes.

    Meh, I'm good w/ 150 uncaptured. It's not like the rear wheel is taken off the bike very often. My rear wheel on the Jedi was removed all of twice last summer, and the rear wheel on my Tallboy was pulled off the frame less than 1/2 dzn times.

    I know nothing about suspension (now) and don't own an FS. But I'm willing to be educated.
    My $0.02:
    FWIW, I own a 1st gen N9 and picked up a Process 111 this past fall. I've also owned a couple of other single pivots as well as a few virtual pivot/mini-link bikes over the years. Without going into detail about single pivot vs mini-link designs, I'll try to give my general impressions.

    I agree w/ others in this Process 111 thread who've described the Process more or less as a FS version of their N9s or YSs, and all that implies--the Process 111 may be the most fun mountain bike I've ridden or owned so far (and that's going back 20+ years). Although the Process' pivot location should cause the rear suspension to compress a bit when pedaling, I've not noticed any significant "bob" when mashing on the pedals, and if anything, my Process feels pretty firm and efficient as opposed to feeling supple or plush.

    Virtual pivot/mini-link suspensions (like the Balance and prior Canfields) can be designed to fall anywhere on the spectrum from super active/plush to super efficient, so one can't simply generalize. But the Balance seems to strike a good balance (sorry) between pedaling efficiency and suspension action, so hopefully the Riot will as well. The other typical advantage the mini-link designs have over single pivots is minimizing brake-induced squat, allowing virtual pivots to remain more active during braking than single pivots. But that's less of a big deal if you transition from a hardtail to a single pivot.

    Dunno what kind of deals you can score for the Process (2014 vs 2015, etc), but msrp for the 2015 111 is $4100 USD and that includes a Pike instead of Revelations that were spec'd on the 2014 models. Riot frame pricing may be similar to Balance, which is currently listed for $2100 USD. The Riot has potential to outperform the Process, but the differences in suspension may be subtle (especially for a short travel bike), and it will cost you in terms of time and possibly money. All things considered, I think you could do a helluva lot worse than getting a Process 111 as your first FS bike.

    As there has been quite a bit of talk about current, new and future dropout standards in this thread, I wanted to add that we are looking for continuity across our All Mountain line of frames. As the Nimble and Balance are both 142x12, our new Riot will be following suit with this standard.

    What about the Yelli? Any plans to redesign the dropouts to match?

    What a novel concept. This is why I love the Bros' bikes. Threaded BB and an actual standard axle... whodathunkit!

    Do we think the Riot will resemble the aforementioned Kona Process 111 geometry wise? I ask not out of the need to own a bike with the latest geometry paradigm but as a 6 foot 6 guy who's 2012 XL Kona Honzo fits him very well and is looking for his first full suspension bike this spring.

    Now that I finished my Yelli build....i'm itching to build another frame...full suspension this time. I was dreaming about a Balance, but honestly, I may wait and see how this Riot pans out...very exciting!
