    Dear Canfield Brothers.....

    Please build a full suspension AM 29er with around the same geo as my nimble nine. Call it the "One niner" That is all, thanks....

    You are talking about a 140mm One Niner right?

    Dear Canfield Brothers.....

    I think what you are looking for is the Yelli Squishy.

    I recently had a brief chat with Lance C at Duthie Hill in Issaquah, WA. He confirmed a FS 29er is in the works with 125mm of rear travel along with a similar geo to the YS/N9 including the short chainstay length.

    Dear Canfield Brothers.....

    The FS 29er world is looking better and better. Kona Satori and Trans Bandit with slack / short geo now. Canfield, Salsa Horsethief, and Banshee Phantom coming (soon hopefully).

    I couldn't wait so I picked up a Bandit 29 last month. Great, really fun bike. But I would still like to try out the Canfield and/or Banshee versions when they come out.

    I picked up a Bandit 26 last year because Canfield didn't have a bike that fit my requirements (120-150mm travel full suspension, playful geo, and easily built under 30lbs without breaking the bank). It has been an awesome bike except the paint quality kind of sucks.

    However, the day that Canfield releases a 27.5 enduro bike or maybe a FS 29er I'll be posting my Bandit for sale.

    Yeah, after a fairly short time, I am already seeing some small chips in the paint on my B29. That has been the only flaw so far, though.

    I am very interested in either the Canfield Yelli Squishy or the Banshee Phantom that was shown at Sea Otter. I think Banshee said the Phantom would be a 2015 model at the earliest, so I am hoping the Bros will get their 29er FS out earlier.

    My Transition B26 paint seems pretty damn good and I love that bike. The Yelli does get more of my attention though. 26 is pretty useful to me and there are definitely places I can clear on it that my 29 struggles. It does go both way though Would certainly look at a Yelli Squishy or a 27.5 something.

    Indeed it does...couldn't have asked for more in a frame actually.

    I ordered mine back in April and will be posting the Bandit for sale as soon as I have a tracking number for my new frame. Got a ton of new parts sitting here waiting for the new frame (Manitou Mattoc Pro, Stan's Arch EX rims on Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs, Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon bars and Integra stem, full XT drivetrain w/ XO cranks, etc etc).
