    Canfield YS replacement

    Good morning. I am looking for something to fill the void I regrettingly made for myself by selling my '16 Yelli Screamy. At the time I was wanting more gears and was not happy with my half-butt build so I sold and got a 19 Vitus Sentier VR SLX. I love the build on it, but the frame just doesn't give me the same confidence the YS gave me. I'm not quite sure how to put it, but it just doesn't feel right. Even when standing to pedal I feel I have to kinda of squar while i pedal and it's very tiring.

    In short I'm looking for something as playful as the YS that I can move all the kit from the Vitus to the new frame. I am looking for another YS, but no luck on just a black medium frame.

    Any suggestions on something easy to get a hold of that will bring back that confidence?

    Thanks for the help.

    I hear ya; hoping C-Bros get their business back on track soon! I would look at a Chromag for sure.

    Have FUN!

    That's in my short list. Also looking at the Meta AM HT. Just looking at Geo numbers it doesnt look that much different from the Sentier. Can't quite figure out what I dont like about the bike. Maybe I'll get in for a fit.
    Thanks.

    If you really loved that bike just get another. There are 4 medium YS's on Pinkbike. Two are under $1K and one of those is black.

    If you don't want the parts just pull them off and sell them so you can use your existing parts. If you know it's a bike you love that's worth a lot.
    Safe riding,

    Canfield teased a picture of a steel hardtail not to long ago on social media. I have no idea where they are with this frame though. If I didn't already have a YS, I'd pick up a Chromag Surface.

    Banshee has the new Paradox coming out soon, small first run before summer supposedly, then normal production after. They've slacked out the HTA, steepened the STA, increased the Reach, put in some "flex" points to help give some vertical compliance, tyre clearance for up to 29x2.6", all based around a 140mm fork. No real concrete info on geo yet, but maybe if you shoot them an e-mail you might be able to get some more info out of them. Other than that, never heard a bad thing about Chromag frames.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I will take a look at the Surface. I'm thinking the wheelbase is the number I need to be looking at. Along with obvious like chainstays and HTA.

    That Banshee looks nice. Their bikes usually sell for a reasonable price too.

    That's the Nimble9. Steel and slightly steeper seat tube.

    I've got a '14 Yelli, but I no selli.

    Just took my '16 N9 out today, I've only had it out less than a dozen times, still not sure if I like it better than the Yelli yet...

    Haha enjoy her while you can! I just found an awesome deal on a '17 Honzo CR frame. Can't wait to build it up and see how it compares.
