    New question here. Canfield Riot SIZING - please post your frame size and height (and inseam)!

    Canfield Riot SIZING - please post your frame size and height (and inseam)!


    I've sifted through the 125+ pages of the Riot thread and thought that this will probably merit a separate thread:

    If you have a Canfield Riot 29er, please post your frame size and your height (and inseam if available)

    I'm on the fence about purchasing a Riot (coming from a Yeti SB95), but I think I might be in between sizes, and I'm sure that others may have this question as well

    Thanks!

    6ft, 32"seam, large G1 with the 20" seat tube. 125mm reverb is perfect with like 3mm of extra post showing. Trust the Bros.

    I'd like the shorter 19 seat tube....but it doesn't really matter. Love my Riot, fits great and makes me a better rider.

    Send them an email with your size and they will give you their suggestion. I went with an XL on their suggestion, 6'3", 37" cycling inseam (34" pants inseam).

    6'2", 32" inseam, large frame. I went from a 40mm stem to a 50mm, much better fit now.

    A lot of people had a hard time getting their heads around the numbers. And if you let it get to you you'll have the same problem. A headache that can be avoided. You already know what mostly works for you, take what you know and talk with the Bros.

    6'4, 38" cycling inseam. XL gen1 frame, 50mm stem, 150mm LEV with about 30-35mm room below the collar. I think the gen2 frame would let me run the 200mm 9.8 if that ever ships. Still real happy with the fit.

    I'm hanging out for the 175mm 9point8. I've would have roughly the same available space, maybe a bit more, if I was running a 150mm dropper.

    6.0, 32" inseam. 50mm stem, 125 dropper post. Large size, I could go 40mm stem but 50 is better for the longer rides.

    Kaylon, whats your height and inseam? We have lots of sizing info to get you the right size.

    5'11 with a 34.5 inch cycling inseam. 78 cm saddle top height measured from center of BB.

    Gen2 size Large with 19 inch seat tube. Running a 150mm Turbine dropper with plenty of room for a 175mm.

    40mm stem, could easily do a 30mm or 50mm depending on position desires.

    The Riot is head and shoulders above the SB95. I had both the alloy and carbon SB95, so I speak from saddle experience. Just do it, you won't regret it

    How does the Riot climb vs the SB95?

    What fork offset did you have on your SB95 and what size was your SB95? How much do you weigh out of curiosity?

    Also were you able to swap your build kit over?

    I'm on a SB95 L and I think I am supposed to get a Riot in L, but I've got two bikes and its also an internal debate about which one to replace/update first

    Would you happen to have a sizing chart? Specifically what are the sizing ranges?

    Thanks for all the replies so far everyone! But please keep them coming! Also so that this thread is useful for everyone looking to buy one of these, is there anyone on any of the smaller sizes?

    Size large SB95.

    The Yeti felt like a firm XC bike to me, wanted to love it but never did.

    The Riot climbs nicely as does the SB95, but the Riot climbs in the tech stuff much more easily and has minimal pedal kickback compared to the Yeti.

    I love the Riot. But, I spent 4 years solid on the alloy SB95 on all types of terrain. In my opinion, the most impressive aspect of the 95 was its climbing efficiency. That bike climbs like a total beast, with very little-to-no pedal bob and excellent tech climbing abilities. I'll humbly disagree with Colin on this.

    I think the Riot is a very good climbing bike for 140mm rear travel, but I definitely notice that it is not as efficient as the 95 (only ~125mm rear travel).

    But, of course, it's a hell of a lot more fun descending, and has much, much more modern/aggressive/progressive geometry than the 95 (head angle, chainstay length, reach, etc).

    If you're looking for a more aggressive bike than the 95, the Riot fits the bill. If you want something in the exact same class, maybe look elsewhere (probably one of the shorter travel 29ers out these days, Transition Smuggler or Kona Process111, for example).
    PS - I'm a Large on both frames, no question. If youre a Large on the Yeti, probably a Large on the Riot too).

    No need to disagree. I'd say the Yeti is more efficient/firm in the suspension department undoubtedly.

    5'7" with a 27-28" inseam riding a gen 1 small Riot 50 mm stem and a 150 mm KS Lev TI.

    I would like to try a medium with a short stem to feel the difference...

    5'6". Small and 35mm stem, 780mm bars. I'm a little bit tight on the climbs, (50mm would fix this), but I really like the way the bike handles with the 35mm.

    28" inseam, 125mm dropper, cranks - I'm changing out all the time. I have 170mm Next SL's in the image above, currently on our cranks/165mm's that I'm much happier with.

    Thanks, if you said you weight 195 we could be twins, lol

    Seeing what I can transfer over from my bike to this frame over the winter. Using 165mm cranks (yes better on knees and droping weight quicker in turns) with a 125mm dropper. This helps a lot!

    5'10" 32.5" cycling inseam

    I ride a large G2 Riot with a 150mm KS LEV, 35mm stem, 785mm bars.

    The LEV is slammed in the seat tube and it's the exact height I need.

    6'1" with 35 inseam on an XL. 165mm cranks, 32mm stem, 800 bar and 150mm fall line dropper. Feels perfect to me standing and seated. I might be able to squeeze in a 175 dropper also.

    going off sizing if anyone wants to go to a 150mm dropper let me know :

    If anyone is looking for a 150mm dropper let me know. With the help of canfield i got hold of a rep and got my raceface dropper post warrantied. Long story short due to the lot number they sent me a whole new post vs rebuilding it.

    You will get a new dropper post just without the cable or housing as they told me to leave it on the bike.

    After a week without the bike wait time i purchased another one and figured i would just sell the new one when i got it back to prevent down time.

    PM if you want it ($250 plus shipping, so $270)

    Calling all 5'10" or so Riot owners on a large...
    Any regrets on going with a large over a medium?
    I don't have any major downhill terrain to contend with in my area, and the trails tend to be more twisty, with shorter rooted climbs. My main concern is not being able to properly weight the front wheel on aggressive turns.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Does anyone else have experience with a 175mm dropper in the gen 2 Large frame? I'm 5'11" with a 32inch inseam and trying to measure if I can get a 170mm Reverb or 175mm RF or 9point8.

    Kaylon... same here... I just broke the rear end of my size L yeti SB95 carbon and it's very expensive to replace and the bike is 3.5 years old, so....

    I am 5', 11" with a 32-inch inseam. I ride a size large with a short 31 mm stem. I like a more upright position but the reach on the large frame feels great for me.

    5' 6.5" Inseam is 31.5 inches. I ride a Medium.

    I bought a 50mm stem for this build 2 months ago, should have bought a 60mm for a tad more room. I am loving 160mm Bikeyoke dropper post, but bypassed seat tube hole, and run cable out the bottom. Try THAT carbon fanboys. Ha.

    I think you will be pushing it - I have 125 Thomson and it only just fits on my Gen2 Large when riding flats (SPDs needs saddle about 5-10mm higher, so bit more margin). Im 5'11" with around 32-33" inseam
