We are proud to officially release our long awaited Canfield Brothers DJ. This project started three years ago when we built a custom dual slalom frame for Mitch Ropelato. We were so stoked on the outcome of the "Ropelato" frame that we created a DJ bike for Chris to ride during his I-Street dirt jump sessions. Chris's primary goals were to create a bike that was super nimble, easy to pump and had a consistent feel when popping off steep lips. He also wanted the frame to have a super clean look, utilizing a hidden integrated seatpost and the effective Taperlock Dropout System. After two years of overwhelming responses from Chris and our friends that rode the prototype, we knew we needed to bring the DJ into our line.

Pics not so good but these were from last weekend. Had a local jump jump ran into my buddy Rich (his bike). Snapped a few of his DJ build. He took all his parts off the Bank and put it on the Canfield. Came out pretty nice.
I asked his thoughts on the bike and does he like vs the Bank? Rich stated I jump higher on this bike and it is faster. Poppy off the lips but very stable frame.
I finally start ordering parts for mine on Friday, super stoked to finally have this frame!
