    Any chance we'll see what new 29er products Canfield is working on in the near future?

    I'm not convinced (yet?) re 27.5 for hardtails. Granted, my Yelli is really the only 29er that I have any time on, but damn I sure do love that thing. But I could be tempted by some carbon goodness

    And what about the full suspended 29er? Any chance of an autumn 2014 release?

    .... But, I would be for a new, full susser, trailbike from the Bros....

    A nice revamped Sauce or something....... Low standover..... heck, a proper aggressive trail bike only needs 125mm of rear travel... 140mm up front... slack...... d@mn.... I'm starting to salivate....

    That'd be a good guesstimate. Recently, after plying Chris Canfield with a post-ride beer at the local trailhead I asked him about a yelli squishy (my words). He said, "it's going to blow you away."

    It had better, because the Kona Process 111 my buddy demoed that day was one helluva fun bike.

    My dream bike would be for the bros to build a 27.5" bike with 120 rear and 140 up front. ISCG tabs, stealth dropper compatible, 67* HTA, short stays, etc... Until then, I'll ride my Yelli and Nimble 9.

    I just hope they build one up before I can't hold out any longer and just buy a Process 134 or a Bronson...

    While cool, what does a carbon ht do that isn't covered by the n9 or yelli?


    Still waiting on the yelli squishy....

    Look closely at the pic in the link. Looks like FS to me.

    IMHO it looks more like a 2nd gen N9 with swoopier shapier tubes, but I can be totally wrong...

    A carbon N9 would be sweet! Im still deciding on whether or not to build a Yelli or an N9 as my endurance race bike. Right now leaning toward Yelli mostly for the weight savings. I'd be bummed if I built one and a few months later a carbon N9 came out...

    Last year I bought a Nomad 3 months before the Bronson came out....doh! The Nomad rules but I would have liked to get all #Enduro<Font Size=1><Sup>TM</Sup></Font> with those 650b's

    I dunno, the pic is pretty hard to see. The only thing that might suggest that it's FS is the drop out, and that drop out doesn't look like a pivot point to me.

    Just going of the seat post mast and chainstay protector I reckon its a carbon N9.

    .
    But none of Canfield's suspension bikes have pivots at the dropout. I'd think that would be a pretty big step backward to a single pivot or [gag] fsr.

    With dropped TTs and seat tube extensions, it's pretty tough to ID a suspension frame from that sort of angle. I'd guess the photo was selected as to not actually show much/anything.
    Give me the Geometry of a Yelli and the weight of a ARC carbon or whatever XC bike, I'll be all over it. Id love a race bike that handles properly (not like a skittery road bike).

    You won't. It took almost 3 yrs to debut the balance. I doubt we will see a FS 29 anytime soon.

Our 29” FS is also in the works with the hopes of a fall/winter 2014 release.

    Thank you all for your patience... I know you're as anxious as we are!

    Any news about the full suspended 29er?

    Will it be a 120mm? 140mm? 160mm?

    Time to release some anticipations...

    Gotta ask: will the new carbon bike have a decent SS option? And how will it look next to my Yelli Squishi?

    +1, or even a SS Yelli with N9-style dropouts would do it for me.

    Canfield....anyone....Bueller......

    The more I race my N9, the more I think "Man, this would be great in a lighter carbon frame...", instead of working on my fitness or nutrition or things like that of course...ha!

    Too much bike for my tastes. I would love to see the bros put out a 125-140mm rear travel bike designed around a 140mm front with a slack HTA. I would still look at it if it were a 29, but kind of itching for smaller wheels lately.

    That'll be tough to manage in the rear without some sort of drivetrain goofyness (wider BB, etc), and probably no option for a front del. (not an issue to me, but might be to some)

    Yeah the waiting game is killing me. I'd be happy with either one though I'd probably prefer a carbon yelli screamy.

    Wish list:
    142x12
    Post style rear brake mounts inside the rear triangle
    16.25" chainstays
    Internal cable routing, stealth dropper routing.
    BSA bottom bracket
    Plenty of clearance for 1x drivetrains and a 2.4" tire
    Clearance for one full size water bottle

    I love my wasabi green Yelli but she's due for an update! I pretty much want a the current nimble nine but don't want the 2+lbs weight gain and don't need the SS dropouts.

    I'd much rather see them weld out a Ti N9 frame than carbon or any FS bike.

    agree with the last couple of posts--as long as the N9's fun factor carries thru the bloodline, i'd welcome either a carbon yelli or yelli squishy (regardless of frame material).

    in the interim, i picked up a process 111 to compliment my 1st gen N9, and would love to see the bros bring to market a FS 29 that retains the same geo of the N9/YS but with a suspension design that is a bit more active than the 111's.

    i'd actually love it if/when someone builds a short to mid travel bike with a high pivot and idler pulley system (like an AM/trail jedi): rearward axle path could conceivably keep the CS/rear center short (17" or less) since designers aren't as restricted by rear tire/seatstays/yokes hitting the seat tube as they are with rear axles having a vertical or slightly forward axle path, idler pulley reduces many of the chaingrowth and unwanted drivetrain-rear suspension interactions, and exclusive use of 1x drivetrains eliminates the funkiness that plagued idler pulley/front derailer combinations from other builders in the past.

    hmmm... given the crazy high prices of production bikes today, maybe it's time to talk to a custom builder to see if it's feasible to build a FS N9/YS with rearward axle path/idler pulley rear suspension.

    I also have a Process 111 and a Canfield (Yelli Screamy). I'd love to see the same thing. Those two bike compliment each other well. Seems like there is a lot of money to be made in the short travel, agressive geo fs category. I could pretty much guarantee that they would sell every frame on pre-order if they made a 120mm 29er with Yelli/N9 geo.


    I picked up the Process because it was the closest thing to a Yelli FS I could find. The bike is great but has its flaws. First of all it is a hefty beast. My size large frame weighed over 8lbs. I have a pretty tricked out lightweight X01 build and it's still about 31lbs.

    You should try out a DB inline shock on yours. I just put one on my Process and it's a drastic improvement to the suspension.

    I agree. Maybe the bros should trademark "short-aggro" before the big S claims they invented the concept in a few years and sues the pants off everyone else for trademark infringement ;^)

    You know what I'd like to see...

    A true AM rated stoutiness, 160mm travel, carbon, 29er, w/ a low-ish leverage ratio, ~13.7" BB height w/ a set of 2.5/2.3 DHF/DHR2s, that uses the same suspension design as the Balance.

    I like to trail ride too, I like wagon wheels, and I like squish. Oh, and not so short on the rear stays so the thing can be a techy climbing beast!
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    I want a 180mm AM bike (26 or 27.5, no care) with as much rearward wheel travel as can be accommodated with a 1x drivetrain and a long-cage rear derailleur. Call it the Jedi Lite. Aim for 30lbs with air fork / air shock and a nice build 35lbs with air and a mid-range build.

    Actually.... On a completely unrelated note, consider dropping the "Jedi" name before George Lucas' lawyers find out.

    The Balance is awesome. If there can be a Balance Carbon, that would be awesomer Same bike, just in carbon. Maybe builds that can hit around 25-26lbs without much effort?

    I dunno, how much rearward wheel travel did The One have?

    I never saw one up close but from looking at the design it seemed like the travel arc was not much different from a typical single-pivot setup.

    NWS, you're correct--axle path for the one was more or less vertical , as discussed on post #18 of this thread.

    It's hard to eyeball multilink/virtual pivot designs (whether w short linkages like Canfield/DW/VPP/Maestro or longer linkages like FSR/Horst) and guestimate axle path. But for single pivot designs, then as long as the pivot is above the rear axle, the axle path will be rearward as the rear axle moves thru it's arc, until the axle reaches the same height as the pivot.

    120mm Yelli, 7.5 lbs WITH shock, sub 16.7 stays, 68 HA. Lenz Behemoth pretty much has this bike with a little more travel. I had a Lunchbox and cant say enough about that bike, I beat the hell out of that thing. I love Canfield these days so i'm hoping for the Squishy!

    150mm rear dropouts would be great for the Yelli Squishy.

    Perfect. Exactly what I'd want. A more refined Kona Process 111 with a tad more travel.

    How about a cyclocross nimble 9 frame? Mines hefty @ 26# for running barriers.

    I'm probably wrong, but when the bros are this quiet about something it usually means that they'll have something to announce in couple of months or so.

    You have no idea how many times I've asked for a Canfield cross bike. I'd even sell my carbon Crux. Think of how sexy ano aluminum frames with an Enve fork would be.

    I just ordered a Transition Rapture so that's about as close as I can get. I'm so ready to build it up.

    i agree--a cross bike from the bros would be very cool and i'd love to see a stealthy frameset decorated with nothing more than their headbadge on the head tube. the only frameset that i still regret selling was my indy fab steel planet x--it may have been the best do-it-all bike i've ever owned for the combo of street, fire roads, and mellow single track. but despite their versatility and growing popularity, it's probably still too much of a niche market for them to jump into.

    some big "ifs", but...
    • if its geometry is as close to N9 or Yelli as possible,
    • if it can fit a 27.5+ tire,
    • and if it's available in spring 2015

    then take my money please, so i can pre-order a frameset now

    The Canfield Rumor Mill

    I just spent some time on a salsa bucksaw and I was rather impressed. Fitting a 27.5+ would be frickin amazing after what I saw this weekend.

    I just put my name on my list for a custom By:Stickel steel hardtail. It will basically be an N9 with a sub 5lb frame weight, stealth dropper routing, and a 142x12mm axle handmade in WNC. Got a bit of a wait ahead of me but I had to brag about it somewhere!

    So here's hoping for a full suspension Yelli/N9! I will be slightly pissed if a carbon yelli comes out in a couple weeks.

    Yeah I've admired his work for a while and sent him a speculative email a couple weeks ago. He totally sold me with his pleasant response including an invite to come out and ride and tour his shop (hopefully this weekend!) so he can get a feel for my riding style and what I might want in the frame.

    Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked to have one of his ride-able works of art made in my backyard!
