    How about making the FD mount removable like the N9?

    I like pwu_1's idea. That FD block probably weighs 100g's or more
    Old enough to know better, too old to give a F$cK

    Well, I'm super stoked on this bike design. Seems like a great "Galbraith daily rider".

    The Balance will be great on Galby. That type of riding is just what we intended for it. I've been riding the proto on South Mountain near Phx and Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City. Everywhere we ride, this bike will most likely be the first out of the van. Very capable bike, up, down and everything in between.

    Planning on making it a 26" bike,
    will that affect anything in the bike? cornering, pedaling? anything? or just make it livelier

    also, what are estimated weights on the builds?
    can it get to 28lbs?
    '12 Canfield One! - f\/ck yeah!
    '12 Canfield brothers Jedi F1 - so fast im back in time

    I'm building with my personal Balance with 26's and a 170mm Lyrik DH to give it more of a "park" feel. Lance has been testing with both set ups and settled in on 27.5's and the Pike 160mm for his do EVERYTHING bike. It's all a preference.

    We are waiting for actual production to post weights, but I'd expect most builds to be right around 30lbs, +/- depending on parts selection.

    So can anyone at Canfield speak on the BB spacing? Is it similar to the Yelli? I went to swap my HBC ring for a new Wolftooth components N/W spiderless chainring this weekend and I added a 2.5mm spacer on the driveside and it was still right on top of my chainstay.

    Thanks

    Good luck getting any new info from the bro's. They great at building bike's, components and customer service but they are even better at being tight lipped. Getting info on the Balance is like getting blood from a stone.

    I agree with you on that, especially now that the '14 Jedi and new cranks are released and off their plate.

    thank you for posting the numbers so soon. i wasn't expecting the stats for another month or so. after looking at the geo page, i noticed a few errors. the drawing letters doesn't line up with the chart. for instance bb drop is listed as 139.7 mm. is that supposed to be 13mm. and j is listed as seat angle but it is clearly chain stay length. i think j,k,l and m are off on the chart.

    i like the price and colors, but am waiting to see what color fern green is in the links and if the travel is adjustable shorter.

    are you going to make fern green pedals and seat collars?

    Thanks for the heads up... Geo charts are updated.

    Fern green is similar to DVO green. Crampon Classics are currently available in Fern, Ultimates will be available by summer. Clamps, we will continue to have Black, Silver, Blue and Red.

    Cheers!
