    Looks like some heavy-duty stuff. Let's see the chassis these components are going on.

    Nice. This thing will be indestructible and probably pedal quite well for the travel.

    Hey, that's not a used post production frame. Lucky. Did Chris and Lance sell you some previous overstock from their warehouse?

    BTW, fine choice. Not too many Canfields on the front range. Good to see another.

    It's Lance's / Chris's bike actually hence the extra skull sticker. Don't think I forgot about you this thing is going to beat it up in the springs.

    Excellent. If it's Lance's/Chris' bike, it's a large, right? I just so happens that a large would fit. I recommend that you should check out my PUSHed Balance too. Should be a totally different bike, but if confident it'll put a smile on your face.

    Interesting history about my Canfield: according to Chris, my XL Canfield is the only Balance in that size they have ever sold.

    Yeah it's a large I will remember not to cut the seatpost until after you have ridden it. They are sending it with DHX 5.

    Now it's on you to ensure that it receives the same type of riding it's been accustomed to.

    Nice looking frame! I have really taken a likin' to those frames! I like Nickle's, and now you? Hmmm.... Perhaps I should sell something for one of them!

    Btw.. I still have to argue with your build. I think the versatility of that bike deserves some dual rings up front. It should climb quite nicely.

    AGREED!

    You should seriously consider a dual ring setup. Youl could take that bike everywhere! I'd make that my new XC bike!

    Pssht. This bike just made the stumpy irrelevant.. Sell it and toss on some Hones and a DRS for relatively cheap. Plus it'll just make it more to my liking while I borrow it for the summer.

    Hah I have a drs wanna buy it? I specifically wanted a single ring on this one because that drs use to downshift whenever it wanted to. Yeah that and I can shuttle marshall mesa on this Yeah the waiting for the frame is killing me. I am going to blow the doors off the haro it replaced.

    Nice bike.... what do you want for the drs?

    I think a dual ring would be sweet on the Canny, but it'll have a lot of pedal feedback climbing. That bike will be overkill for most trails, but not all...

    I'm going to put forth a vote for a single ring setup. The vertical support on the drive side in the rear triangle does not offer much chain clearance for dual rings. This was true at least for my Balance. Granny gear would rub that vertical support like nobody's business.

    I find that with a dual ring, the Canfield Lucky with its extreme rearward axle path, is going to ride more like fake boobs than a bike with extreme pedal feedback. With a larger single ring, the pedal feedback will be more like real boobs. There is clearly a difference, but we're talking boobs here; you can't go wrong.

    Real boobs vs fake boobs is a favorite topic of mine. Probably because it involves boobs.
    Boob test. *NSFW*
