    Canfield Action Pics

    There are plenty of good shots mixed in the various canfield threads, but they're pretty haphazard. Be nice to see a grouping of pics of people having a good time in one thread, anywhere from flatland to going huge.

    I'll kick it off.

    Vin, your shot looks bigger. A little more lean and you'd be smacking your helmet on your tire!
    Here's a few more from that trip.

    I'm heading out there come spring break (april 1st), trying to get them to cruise with us, jump on the bandwagon.

    edit: And, because this thread is worthless without pics, heres some more from my ride today!





    Sadly the timing of this next set is off, but you get the idea, roller about 1/3 of the way down to drop the next 2/3's

    Riding a canfield WILL make you a better rider! Actually, its probably mostly in my head coupled with the fact that I'm now on a bike with geo I like that has suspension that does everything I want it to that makes me a better rider. That said, in the past 3 months I've had my lucky I've progressed about as much (maybe more) then I did in my first year of riding.

    Heading down to SB for holiday soon! I'll snap some pics while I'm down there.

    Here's one from earlier this year. I don't have the original so the sizing/quality isn't optimal...

    1st time attempting both and was right there with them (sketchy but so close). Ill get these dialed within a month or 2 and then go bigger and add to the arsenal!
    Now mmind you the snow is 5" or so and hard frozen ground! Slippery and hurts bad to hit the deck, did a way bigger attempt on no foot can can and stuffed HARD! Definently worth it though.

    No foot seat grab hopefully to be pinned by march and then into a superman seat grab!

    Same DJ area but bigger line, 15-17 foot DJ style gap jump.

    Ah surgeon General has warrned that canfield bike owners are plagued with a genetic defect! The Xgame chromosone! Its been linked to others accomplishing 40' gaps, slopestyle tricks and now the XCgame chromosone has shown itself! XCrs are now able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! It starts with a simple call to the devious but maniacle Chris Canfield then leads to some spandex wearing guy whipping out his credit card! 1 Week later its started, he opens the box and the Xgame virus infects its host and hes at the whim of the ultimate suspensions becking for a beating! First rides can vary from 4' to flat at the moderate end of the new found host to huge gapsp with awe inspiring tricks and superhuman speeds down crazy @$$ rock gardens!
    So be warned I have done the investigating and i see the canfield virus spreading!!!!
    Canfields rock!

    Just wanted to post one from this weekend. The camera flattens it out some but trust me its a good sized drop. My biggest to date so I was happy. It was great to have the Canfield One with me on this drop. The bike did not let me down on both attempts (went bigger 2nd try ).

    Thanks Canfield Brothers!

    This threads a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing all these great shots eveyone.
    Heres a couple more from a week ago, riding with some locals in Beitou, Taiwan. They are a fun group of guys that are so stoked to ride. I'm happy to have my old stand by Formula 1 here so I can get out for my jumping fix.

    A couple short videos from our ride.

    Thanks... This is my XC/AM bike so went a little lighter build.

    Saving up for an 09 Jedi hope to have it built in the next few months.

    A little Different kind of Canfield Action...

    Here's a few shots of Chris from a trip that we took up to Idaho last May, about a week after we built up my Jedi... Definately a HUGE drop!!!

    woah thats huge.

    Also, feel free to post your videos. Canfields in action would have been a better thread I think. I'll edit the OP but I can't edit the thread title, oh well.

    Hey there,

    sent you a PM,

    You are riding one of my favorite trails! That is graveyard up in Tienmu right? I literally live next to the beginning of the taipei inner city trail "gasplant." We have since found 2 new sections to add onto it and I try to hit it up at least once a week. My favorite though will always be "ski lift" or "helen's" up behind the national palace museum.

    I would love to take you out on a ride next time you are in Taipei!

    Perfect, thanks for the offer! The more trails (and cool people) the better! Chris is there right now and is riding this week, before the show starts. I shot him your info, hope you can show him around.

    Some guys in Beitou showed me that trail a few weeks ago. It's nice to have a couple options over there to ride. Interesting to start the ride by bombing down a few thousand stairs in the middle of a grave yard!
