    More pics to come, maybe I can borrow a proper camera from one of my friends and take better pictures.
    I cannot find white EX1750 hubs, I tried but failed so far. These are my a little bit lighter wheels, DT440s on DT 6.1 rims. I will be changing the rims to Stan's Flow ones. probably in two weeks time.
    I kind of wanted to take this shot because the bike looks sooooooo low. I was also able to see whether the wheel would hit the tyre, how low I could go with the seatpost, shorten the chain a little bit (I am running it as 5speed only).
    I am not going for lightweight this time, I will have Hope V2 brakes with vented rotors which are not light at all. I will use Formula rotors for normal use and vented rotors for alpine riding next year

    There is no shock - I am still waiting for a new rear shock.
    Did you mean forks? If so, they are 2009 Dorado forks.

    Your deap pockets have good taste. Looking good, man.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    waiting on reviews?, the forum is literally riddled with reviews of the Jedi. The love of the bike is well documented.

    This is quite complicated. I ended up having two frames. My relocation is now on hold for unforeseen period.
    One of the frames is still up for sale in the UK, though.

    X-post from here: Return of the Jedi

    This is my 09 Canfield Jedi. It has been my long term project but also a simple way to cheer me up when things in my life are going downhill fast.

    There are only two or three major changes before this bike is completed - Stan Flow rims will replace DT 6.1s, the chainring will be changed to black (e13 or blackspire) and Schwalbe Muddy Mary will be my tyres of choice. I do not know the weight but it should be around 38.5lb. Pics on a scale to come later.

    Enjoy the pictures below and let me know you comments.
