    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!

    12mm TA would be a plus too.

    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?
