    The 2018 bikes...

    So no new carbon on the way for 2018 and the 2017 models are getting discounted & sold off... what's in the pipe for 2018? Any significant updates coming?

    No new carbon for 2018? Do you have a source on this discouraging information?

    Come on fellas, surely you could give us some more info on these chainstay protectors. Word on the street is that they are groundbreaking. If you can't let us in on that, any info reagreding the bikes you make would prolly hold us down for now...

    Agree!!! That pic got into my hands and I just had to share it here. I'm surprised no one else has posted other pictures.

    From what I can see, it (front/upper link) looks a lot like the Balance design, but probably a little shorter in length. Most likely single CNC'd part.

    Need a date, even a quarter would be better than Riots not coming out till Fall and no info on the other bikes.

    I have a feeling that they will annonce the new bikes more when they have them ready to sell. But too much talk, they won't sell what's in stock. But a little hype keeps people interested and won't hurt sales too much.

    I'm with you. Love aluminum frames. Owned several carbons in the past and went back to alu for several reasons. Plus, the raw finish on the Canfields are hot. Hope they keep it metal and raw.

    I would agree EXCEPT they already told us about the Riot/Toir, so why not give something out on the other bikes?????

    Because keeping us curious makes everyone guessing and going on the interwebs for more info. Once the mystery is solved, the eagerness might dissipate. It's like knowing the end of the Sixth Sense before ever watching it. That's my theory

    My theory is Iíll buy another brand if I donít have some reassurance there is a carbon balance on the horizon and then be pissed at Canfield if I do and they release it a month later.

    Haha, those that have a Canfield will watch the tread everday. Those that don't hopefully will buy up all the aluminum bikes that are onsale. There are a few, that will wait, a few that will go elsewhere. But mystery is great marketing

    I'm just trying to add a little humor here. I guess patience isn't on your side spidermatt. It is the end of the riding season for most people and winter sports is just ahead. As long as they release info before next spring, I'm cool with that. Still loving my Balance. Have demoed a few bikes and nothing really exites me.

    I just think a 28# Balance is going to be a world beater. And I donít have much patience, ask my wife. Went from a Balance to a Spartan to a Delirium and would love to go back to the Balance, especially one that is a few pounds lighter than the bike Iím on now or the 2017 Balance. The new Spartan looks really good too, maybe Iíll have to get one of those while I wait?

    I'm not anti-internal, but it appears the rear brake and rd lines come out of the seat tube and then go up to the seatstays and back down. Would really prefer less bends. Doesn't look like coming out of the BB area and going along the chainstays will work with this design though...

    Agreed. I knew straight up they'd be moving to boost. Still bought a killer carbon wheelset with i9's. Just going to buy the wolf tooth boostinator and call it a day. Won't phase me one bit. No need to bitch about it, that's the way the industry works. It'll cost you a WHOPPING $24.99.

    Yep. I recently switched to a white brothers hub and have the boost kit in the drawer waiting.

    Absolutely.
    Maybe in time i'll change my mind, but to me CB frames are aluminium.
    I have other bikes in carbon (currently N4 and HT) which i really like, but also love the alu CB frames and raw is the tits!

    Depends on how you read it. It's my sarcastic way of letting them know that I would probably buy any new iteration of their Full squish bikes and I'm just boostless at the moment as their current models are 142. ...

    Don't know if you saw elsewhere, but it turns out that you can convert the current frames (Riot and Balance) to boost just by getting a longer axle and spreading the flanges a little bit. My plan is to upgrade my wheelset this spring, then we'll see about the new frame in the fall of 2018.

    I read that thanks. I just have the other way around, non-boost wheelset (NOBL TR33/hope 4) for that hypothetical scenario of a new boost Canfield frame...

    I thought I remembered reading that the new carbon Riot was delayed until at least this time next year.

    Boost is long past the standard and Canfield frames are still 142. Current bikes are heavily discounted and I doubt they offer enough margin to sustain a business long term. It has to be a liquidation phase but surely they won't go up to and over a year with no product available once the 142 inventory is sold.

    I am hoping that they come out with marginal revisions on their current aluminum frames until major redesigns actually materialize. My hope is for a Riot boost rear triangle with a one piece upper link that I can retrofit to my frame!
