    So when can I buy my new Yelli Squishy?

    I remember a thread here that mentioned the Bros were working on a 120mm travel 29er. Any news on this? Is it realistic that it could be a 2014 model, or is it further out than that?

    I for one would love a 120mm-ish FS bike that handled just like my Yelli.

    Actually. I heard it from a guy who heard from another guy at the trailhead, who talked to a bike shop owner, who had no affiliation with Canfield Bros whatsoever that the name was going to be "The Big One". It was going to be slack and accept a 140-150 fork. Have a 140mm rear travel. Maxle rear end and 17" stays. Frame weight with shock was 6.5 lbs. unless you opt for the CCDB! Available in LE Chrome, Matte Blk, Raw, and Highlighter Yellow! I already put my deposit down, and have one of my children up for bid on flea bay.

    I vote for 120-130 rear travel, 120 or 140 fork, 68-ish head angle, and 17" stays.

    Something like the proto banshee phantom or trans bandit.

    I really can't say much yet besides the bike is in the works and it will have our Canfield Brothers 29er geo. And YES, we have a few extra tricks up our sleeves. We all would love to release this bike now, but things just take time. As always, as soon as we have more accurate information, I will be sure to fill you guys in on it. At the end of the day we are just stoked that our customers are as passionate about our bikes as we are!

    If it doesn't take a front der, that would be fine. Short stays are better anyway!

    According to me the perfect "Big One" would have a 27.5" rear wheel, a 29" front wheel, the ONE suspension, 150mm travel front and rear, 66-67° HA, short stays.

    I don't think the new canfield will be like this, but maybe in the future ;-)

    Any chance of this Yelli Squishy being a 650 with 160mm travel?

    Of course. The yelli screamy can run 650b wheels. I will be building one in 650 trim next spring for my significant other.

    I know it can be done on a Screamy but a 12" BB sounds scary with 5-6" of travel through rough stuff.
    I'm picturing the crank arm pole vaulting you up and over.

    And how about pivots around the BB so that the chainstay length does not change and it can be run SS...

    Keep it 29!

    This is why it is so hard for a small bike maker. I want 5 or maybe 6 inch, sub 17 in stays (short as possible and can scrap front derailleur if necessary), 74 degree seat angle, 66 degree head angle around a lyric type fork in 160 and low as reasonable bb height. Oh and the kicker, I want 26 inch wheels still...

    Exactly.
    Oh yea, add in a 26lb build that goes up like a mountain goat and goes down like a fat girl.

    Please don't do that. There are better ways to keep CS short that won't destroy pedaling performance.

    Yup... Not the same bike as the 29er FS being talked about here, but what you are referring to will be our first trail bike to be released next year. 650b/26" compatible. That's all I can say for now... I have more info as we get closer!

    Very cool. I wasn't sure which format you were basing your Enduro racer on.
    A 29er Yelli FS or more of a lightened up One.

    Maybe... more??? HAHAHA. With Sean and I on board, it's given the Bro's a lot more time to focus on products. We have a lot of projects in the works and hope to have many of them going for 2014. The unfortunate part is, it just takes time to go from concept to having a finished product. We are just very excited about having a well rounded line in the future!

    As a yelli owner this sounds great.......but can you guys sort out your distribution to the UK before you release it. As it currently stands a new yelli would cost about $1200 over here so any suspension bike is going to be cost prohibitive i guess.

    I am with you on this after ripping on my Yelli!Would love same geometry and stays.I wouldn't complain if they were shorter.130-150mm travel would work also.Perfect combo for me especially with there top notch customer service!
    Would like to see them beat the 16.7 stays of the new Lenz punk ass.

    Yeah, I'll be in the market for a shorter-travel stable-mate for my E29. Right now running a custom Camber Evo and am not in love with it.
