    The Shimanos are the best pedals I've had so far (plenty of grip with my 5-tens)... I can't really justify spending 100's of $$ on pedals when I smash them up like I do anyway!

    He was asking 600 but the rear dérailleur and hanger are bent.(won't stay on the top gear) and the rotors and wheels need truing. It goes down the hill though....just a beach goin up.

    That looks great. I'm going the same route with my brother's Stinky. Dropping the Triple Drop-Off DC POS fork in favor of a Rockshox Lyrik Solo Air, trying to make that bike more AM-friendly than Freeride orientated. And dropping 2+ lbs is a plus in my book. :thumbsup:
    I'll post pics when I'll swap it.

    Thanks everyone, the frame was kinda a first year thing. The rest of the op frames were "tame". But this shiny tatted beast called me. It took almost 6 months of payments and waiting to complete it, but everytime I ride its like music hitting every pleasure note in my head.....electric everytime....better than mediocre sex....not GOOD....because thats, well dishonest......

    v2 2011 Canfield One
    My bike started off more of an AM build with lighter components, it was 33.2 lbs at one point. But progressively has become more FR oriented I guess. It's become heavier as a result, but it's still manageable as an AM bike. I guess this is borderline AM/FR? Whatever it is "called", I really like how it is now.

    Build details
    -----------------
    Frame: 2011 Canfield Brothers The One (small)
    Fork: 2011 Marzocchi 66 RC3 Evo Ti
    Shock: 2011 X-Fusion Vector HLR w/ Ti spring
    Headset: Cane Creek XXII
    Stem: Po1nt One Split-Second [50]
    Handlebar: Deity Black Label
    Grips: Deity
    Brakes: Avid Elixir CR (8" fr, 7" rr)
    Shifters: XO
    Wheelset: Industry Nine Enduro (tubeless converted)

    Tires: Schwalbe Fat Albert Evo in these pics...I have since replaced these with a Maxxis Minion 2.5 up front and a High Roller 2.35 at back...

    Pedals: Canfield Brothers Crampons
    Crankset: Truvativ Hammerschmidt AM
    Seatpost: KS i950
    Seatpost clamp: Deity
    Seat: WTB Silverado Ti
    RR Derailleur: XO

    37.4 lbs with this spec.







    I know this is a single crown thread, but I'll post an older pic of what it looked like with a 40 as I don't typically run a DC. But it was pretty awesome with it. The build below had the x-fusion vector HLR air which was/is dope:

    I mean no offense, but I don't think that can count as a freeride bike, it's an XC bike in a small size.

    Thanks, I was going black with green links for my pre order. I saw a pic of the neon yellow and changed my order.

    The gearing will build the legs alright. I have a 32 up front with a 9X27 rear cassette. I am running the new Canfield DH capreo hub in 9 speed config. (10 speed will be offered later). Any day a 28 tooth front CR should show up. That should help the AM side of things some.

    I have a RS Reverb SP on the way to help as well. Stopping to lower or raise the seat was a real PITA this weekend.

    Brake lines getting trimmed as well in the next week or so.

    you have no idea how much I want a bike set up like that... some personal preference things with some components (I prefer air shocks/forks, and obnoxiously wide (780mm+) flatbars, and non-lock-on grips) but by in large, that's my dream bike with damn near my dream build on it!

    Thanks I really appreciate that I am still buying a few more parts to finish the bike out. As far as air suspension. The fork is a Totem solo air but it is on loan from a friend. Still need to swap the seat and fork out in the next few weeks.

    I thought I was going 2012 Fox 40 but now its looking more like the 2012 888 RC3 EVO V2 TI.

    The tall A2C of the Vengeance(560mm) vs a Boxxer(568mm?) has my HA at a nice 64 degrees. Usual tyres are DHF 3C Exos.

    I used to have an old Specialized SX Trail, 160mm of travel on both wheels.

    About an year ago I broke my hand and have been out of the freeride scene since that.

    Actually I´m getting used to freeride again, hehe!

    My new sled has a fox 40 big brother with avalanche internals but is a lot more play full with the fox 36 talas 180.
    2012 pivot phoenix 36.62 lbs and that's with dh casing tires, it will drop 500g with the new gravity hansdampf schwalbes next month and another 200g with six cranks. So it should be 34.75 with 36 and 36lbs + with fox 40.





    Here's the drop from the top by the bike to the landing starting where the helmet is at
