So I got done building my The One and it ROCKS!!
I live in Denver and ride in the area during the weeks and head to WP or Keystone on the weekends. The One is turning out to be a very very well rounded bike! I have been able to ride some single track trails, some tech climbs, and it has done very very well on everything that I have put it up against.
My main issue is that I never intended for my The One to be a full on resort DH bike. It serves that purpose fairly well but I don't want to decrease the life of the bike by bashing it up too much, I want to re-tool it with some lighter parts and use it for all my non-resort riding. It does well in the full on DH but there are better bikes for that purpose.
Which brings me to my point. I want to "demo" a jedi on some of these resort trails like high speed dirt or trestle. I got to demo a carbon SC V10 this past weekend and (obviously) it just mashed everything on the hill. I have been riding an older V10 for the last 5 years and have an addiction to the V10, so it will be hard to NOT buy that bike as my DH bike
I have been highly impressed with everything involved with my new Canfield, though. The feel, ride, stability, everything has been spot on! And the customer service is the icing on the cake, you don't get a more personalized service than dealing with the Canfield Bros and their team.
So I am torn between a V10 and a Jedi. I know the V10, I know it would be just what I am looking for, and I know I would love it. I don't know anything about the Jedi, but just going on customer reviews, my experience with my The One, and the Bros ability to make and back up a great machine, it puts the Jedi in an uneducated second place.
If anyone reading this has a Jedi and rides at WP often, and wants to try out a The One, hit me up! I'd like to take a few runs together and swap rides. No need for animosity, we would be riding together as I am like Linus and his blanket when it comes to my bike.
