    I agree, a balance would be too much for my riding...

    Full squish yelli 29'er!Short stays and wheelbase and 130-150mm travel with clearance for the upcoming 27/2.8-3.2 tires would be awesome!

    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 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.

    Oh man.... Just what I need.....another bike!!! Com'on Bros.. I need another bike to build up for the Demo-Stable!!! Personally I'd like to see a 4-5" travel single pivot Slope style bike similar to their Kids DH bike. I love the DJ but could use the travel...lol

    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

    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!
