    Is there a frame with shock weight? I wish I could see pics of the frames colors.

    The Ano Black option will have laser etched logos. The brushed will look similar to our proto and will have black stickers, then a clear coat to protect the finish. We are waiting on finished samples. As soon as they arrive I will shoot and add them to the site.

    As production has not finished, I can't post actual production weights yet, but we should be in the 7.5lb range without shock.

    6'2" and I can't decide on an XL with a 35mm stem or a Large with a 50mm stem. Currently on an XL Bronson and the Large and XL Balance straddle the reach measurement I'm used to.

    It looks like a sick bike! I have a question on the Geo #s:

    So is the bike slacker with an internal headset? It shows a 65.5* HA with an internal set, and a 66* with an external. It also shows the Small size as a 66.5* w/ internal, and 66* with external. Is the small sizing correct? Or am I just completely off base.

    Anyways, I might have to see what this bike can do. Maybe a replacement for my process is in order

    Should be 66.5 internal, 66 external (actual HA's will depend on fork, tires and headset).

    Cheers.

    Looks great fella's! Numbers and the price are spot on.

    Actually talking about numbers, how will the geo be effected when 27.5er's are installed?

    And it looks like that there aren't any fancy dropouts or the likes for installing the 27.5er's?

    If I am not mistaken, the geo numbers are wheel size agnostic, with the exception of the standover height. Install 650b wheels and get a BB height of about 13.8". Install 26" and the BB drops by about 1/2".

    Yeah I sorta figured the most, just wanted hear what Canfield's had to say. It's certainly the type of info that should be added to the geo and sizing page.

    Thanks for the feedback. I added that standover is based on 27.5" to help clarify. Please remember, these #'s will be greatly affected by component selection. Running 26's will drop the BB by about 1/2".

    While we designed the Balance around 27.5", we knew we would have customers that would enjoy the low slung feeling of this bike with 26's. (I am in this boat living in Bellingham, where the trails are super smooth compared to other areas). Due to this we did not feel the need to incorporate "moving parts" into our stout dropouts.

    komondor - Sorry, I haven't seen you ask this question before. We only set US pricing as our distributors handle pricing in their specific countries, canfieldbrothers.de will set European pricing. If you have more questions on this, feel free to email us directly.

    Cheers!

    What is the longest fork recommended in 25.7 mode? Will a 180 like the XF Metric work?

    Depends on what you are doing while in 140. Climbing??? Great.

    Going downhill?? Might be pedal strike-tactic.

    If I can get some positive feedback on the xfusion sweep I might try the 130-160 adjustable fork.

    Glad it's not under 7 lbs, can't wait to see a black next to the brushed finish

    Prefer to keep fs frames a few years.. Plenty of featherweight options out there but I like durable bikes, threaded BB, replaceable bearings etc.

    Some questions for the Bros and Vince:
    What size would you recommend for someone who's 6'1"? Is the BB threaded or press fit? What length crank arm would you recommend someone of my size if I got the frame and crank package? I'm on 175mm now. I'm hoping to demo this bike this summer. Are you guys planning any trips back down to Utah this season to promote/demo the Balance?

    Think their cranks use threaded GXP..

    frame manual mentions the bb is reamed, doesn't say chased though..

    Canfield Brothers Balance - First Look

    I would assume its a threaded BB since there cranks are. And afaik every frame they have ever made has been a threaded bb. What is the advantage to a pressfit BB??
