    2011 Canfield Bros "THE ONE" info

    "The ONE" info is a bit scattered, so I thought ill collect all info about the 2011 model we got so far in this post, so its more easy to obtain.

    PRICE MSRP:
    $2,500.00 USD including an unknown shock. (Price in the EU is 1999 euro, without shock)

    AVAILABLE FRAME COLORS:
    Anodized Black or Titanium Grey

    AVAILABLE LINK COLORS:
    Black, White, Blue and Red (decals follow the link color)

    WEIGHT:
    10 lbs with Coil (4,55kg)

    Warranty:
    2 years

    Confirmed Shock options: FOX (coil and air), RockShox (coil and air), X-Fusion, Elka, Cane Creek. A No-Shock-Option will be available as well.

    FRAME
    "ONE" Suspension
    7005 Aluminum
    Internally ribbed Chainstays
    68mm BB shell
    135x12mm through axle
    1.5" Headtube
    20mm seal bearings
    Replaceable rear derailleur hanger
    6.5"-7.5" with 2.5" shock / 7"-8" with 2.75 shock (165mm-190mm with 216x63mm shock / 177mm-203mm with 222x70mm shock)
    Shock bushing sizes - 22x8mm both sides

    Front derailleur - Direct mount
    Seat post - 31.6mm
    Seat clamp - 35mm
    International standard disk brake mount
    Standard ISCG tabs
    Headtube - 1.5

    About running this bike with a 160mm fork:

    "It's a great way to run this bike. A 160 on the front will drop the HA to 65.6 degrees. You can get a as steep as 67 degree HA with a CC Angle set. I'm planning to build mine with a Fox 180 talas so I can drop to 140mm climbing and have a 66 HA, but I'll get a Angleset too so I can play with it a bit. A 36 160mm Talas would be a good way to build it if your not using a Angleset.
    Seat tube angle will steep when you drop front travel giving it a better climbing position. The seat angle steepens about a half degree per inch shorter fork. The BB will be around 13.5.
    " - Flymybike

    Out of curiosity...

    Why does the ONE have longer chainstays and a longer corresponding wheelbase than the Jedi? Is the ONE suppose to be snappier being an AM/FR bike, whereas the Jedi is more of a DH bike? It is just counter intuitive in my brain, but this isn't saying too much (ie my brain).

    How is the suspension different for the ONE and the Jedi. The Jedi has 2" rear wheel travel. I am assuming the ONE doesn't, what does this result in as far as performance?

    Both bikes look amazing! Nice job!

    Yes, RS will be a option. We can get most any shock you want, availability dependant. It just has to be a 8.75 x 2.75 or a 8.75 x 2.5.

    Chainstay length is based off of wheel path. So the Jedi is very rearward so it has to start short to feel normal whereas the One is a more traditional wheel path so it can start at a length that is stable and shorten when compressed to make it turn quicker.

    The Jedi has 3 shock mounts that control the progression rate. It does effect travel but only 0.2" per adjustment. It's meant as a means to precisely tune the bike per race track. Linear (top hole) for rough tracks to very progressive (bottom hole) for tracks with more burms and jumps.

    The One has a travel adjust (notice it's on the link, not the main frame) that changes from 7" to 8" with a 2.75 stroke and 6.5 to 7.5" with a 2.5 stroke shock.

    Updated first post, with EU pricing(again), and shock options.

    I have put my PRE-ORDER on the ONE!! WHOOO!!! Looking forward to get the frame!! : ) Sofar canfieldbrothers.eu have been a joy to work with, and they reply their emails fast.

    Now all I can do is wait. Apparently Chris is in TW right now assembling the frames.

    No but im quite sure canfieldbrothers.eu knows the price if you mail them.

    I have seen the 2011 jedi on a norwegian website, and the price tag was 3.241 euro, if you convert the currency to euro's

    I just helped Lance install the front derailler on the One. This is what I would use.
    BTI Part Number SH-40739.
    The new D-Mount derailler is top and bottom swing.
    Lance drew in enough room in the link to adjust for a tripple chain ring.
    I think most people will use a single or double.

    Very nice white is tight! I got white coming on my 2011 Jedi and I am not sure what color I am going with for my One. I just saw a video from Chris on the 2011 frames and man the white One links look killer.

    Maybe Chris or Lance will post video

    Alright, so far we know there was at least 44 Jedi's making its way here over the pond. Now any news or updates to One frames hitting our shores? I am officially anxious about getting both of my bikes.

    I already know that I am probably not one of the 44 that's getting their jedi, but hopefully sooner than later it will be in my hands. Hence the super anxiousness of getting the One cause I can definitely live with that till the jedi gets here! All my parts are sitting here wondering why they are on the shop floor!!!! ahhaha

    Well I originally ordered ablack frame with black links. But after seeing the new red stuff I asked if I could change to red. I think my request has pushed my frame back a little but I hope not. I'm planning on a full on AM build with parts to handle dh/fr. So basically a heavy build. Its going to literally be my One bike. I have come to accept that a heavy pedal bike will pay off more when I am grinning ear to ear on the descents.

    Bike looks great but surely that BB heigh is verging on the impractical?

    Considering it's a bike made to pedal, I can't see myself pedalling through much with it that low....

    The BB is very low indeed with a 160mm float and zero stack headset.

    How's the fit? I saw on geometry chart that all sizes have 105mm headtube length. Maybe that's because all must have same HA with angleset, but for XL it seems to me too low

    The fit is spot on, but yearh, the headtube is very short, and that explains the stack height ; )

    Build tips

    The One is designed as a low, long and slack DH bike. When you want to run it as a AM bike we suggest a external lower cup on the HT and short cranks to keep the BB up. The frame uses a 222mm (8.75") rear shock I to I where as the older One was able to use both a 8.5" I to I and a 8.75". An 8.5" will make the BB way to low for normal use.

    The HT is a 1.5" so you can run a Cane Creek Angleset. When you steepen the HA, it brings the fork crown back, closer to the frame so with the full 1.5 deg steeper cup, it can be close. They offer a lower cup that is external so if your running it 1.5 deg steeper, it will buy you the space needed to clear the fork crown. Otherwise, the 0.5 and 1 deg should be fine but we still recommend the external cup for BB height.

    We recommend that everyone use some type of chain guide on these frames. If the chain falls inside of the granny ring, it can get caught under the lower link and mess up the ISCG tabs. The MRP XCG is a good one for multi ring setups and any DH type guide will work for a single ring.

    Kinda having a WTF moment...

    Web page indicates 6.5" travel front and rear for an all mountain bike, 7" for Freeride and 8" for downhill. Using either a 2.5 or 2.75 in shock. When you refer to 2.5 or 2.75 you are indicating stroke length of shock? And the new ONE needs an I -to- I of 8.75"?

    So to get the all mountain/freeride I would need an 8.75 I-to-I with a 2.5 inch stroke? And an external bearing cup on the headset?

    And a chainguard?

    That's right. Some shocks are offered in a 8.75" I to I but strokes are different from 2.5, 2.6 and 2.75. The 2.5 stroke will give you the 6.5" travel. The 8.75" I to I is manitory to not have your feet in the ground. We can get the right shock for what you want when you order.
    The external bearing cup on the headset will help you have better pedal clearance. If you are going for DH race low, then a flush lower cup will be fine. We are talking a 1/4" difference at the most but every little bit will get you dialed in better.

    The chainguide is to eliminate the chance of droping your chain under the lower link. Since I built up the first One frame I haven't had an issue with it but I highly recommend using one.

    These are all recomendations to make the bike the best for the riding you want to do with it. I'm happy to talk all this through to help you have a better understanding of what each tweek will do to the ride. Give me a call, 801-548-2556

    Thanks,

    getting things sorted out. I do have a 2011 XL ONE on the way, (Although not quite what I expected. There were/are issues with the orange links....) to replace my '08 Large ONE.

    Way back in Jan. I spoke with one of you, I think it was Chris. We spoke about reusing my current Pushed Vivid 5.1 and which fork I am planning to use (Pushed 36 Van 160mm). He thought that was a good setup for what I intend to do.

    I have been considering adding the MRC XCG to the 08. I'll make sure I get one for the '11. And I was waiting on headsets until the frame arrived to make sure I wouldn't be banging too many rocks and such.

    I did add a set of your Crampons to the 08. Loving them. I had been running clipless since the late 90's.

    V.P., Any ride report or setup changes?

    I have a 170mm lyrik on the way and have a old DHX 5.0 shock in the 2.75 stroke. But wanting to get it down to the 2.5 stroke so It'll be more of a AM bike for me. I got a Cane Creek Angle set and just realized that I ordered the wrong one with the flush bottom cup so my front end is going to be pretty low. How did you setup turn out on you for your first few rides.

    Hey Doodooboi,

    Saw over in DH/FR Jedi thread that the BB is too low with 2.75" stroke shock. Wondering what your bottom stack height is, I think that your Lyric's A2C is 555mm.

    Trying to get a feel for the geo numbers as I'm putting together my build. The geo charts are based on a 565mm A2C with a 16mm stack height, I'm debating a tapered v. 1-1/8" straight steerer.

    Well I have a regular CC Angle set headset bottom cup so I think it's about 2mm thick or even less. It's pretty flush. Now with that setup I am sitting at a 13.5" bb with a 66-66.5 HA. With a 2.75" stroke shock and that low bb, on a full bottom out, the pedals come really, really close to the ground matter a fact I hit the pedals. So with a 2.5 stroke I am hoping for a little less full bottom out, about .5 inches. I really like the Geo on the bike tho. I use to ride a 13.8"-14" bb with a 66 HA and the New One is right around there. Just gotta time the pedaling a bit and all is good. I don't want to put a full 5mm bottom cup cause that would rake out the bike more and I already have full 1.5 degree tuck on the CC angleset. So with the 5mm bottom cup would rake out my bike to a 65.5-66 and that would kill the climbing that I like. It would raise the BB but I think it's not worth it. I'm just going with the shorter stroke shock and call it a day. Bike rails and climbs really really good right where it is and am starting to really love the charateristics of the bike handling.

    Alright I'll bite, Just remeber this is just a review is true to my knowledge and unbais as possible. Oh and this is coming from a 3-4 days straight of riding the bike.
    So first off I would to let you know what I was looking for in a pedal bike like this. I came off of a 08' 575 before my 08' One. And the reason I got rid of the 575 is due to the carbon seat stays. Just didn't cut it here in AZ for me. I broke that thing in about 2 months from having the bike.
    So when the One came out, I figured it would be the bike to have here. So with all this said I looking for a 575 kind of bike that could take bigger hits and climb just like it.

    The new 11' One really hit it on the nail for me so far. Got the Geo that I was looking for execpt maybe a 0.2"-0.5" missing on the bb height. Which I have come to terms and is fine riding it the way it is.

    Pedaling/Climbing. Well with my current set up, this bike has out shine the previous One on the climbing aspect by leaps and bounds. I really dug how my 1st gen One climbed but just never felt smooth or effortless like the 575 that I got off of. Now this One V 2.0 has been really fun to climb. Did lots of pedaling/climbing on the first weekend I had the bike which I spent in Moab. Then when I returned to Phx, I took out to my local trials and man I was very relieve that it wasn't the new bike stoke that kept me from boggin on the climbs cause it climbed things easier than I thought it would.
    It's super smooth and nice to pedal in the granny gear up front. Just sit and spin.
    But if you want to hammer it in the bigger ring and off the seat it just excels out of the gate so well. It almost feels like it has a "Anti-squat" action going on in the bike when you are putting the power down.
    Haven't weighed the bike yet but I believe it's in the sub 35lbs area. I had my previous One in the same weight class and my 575 at the 30lbs mark. The new One climbs like the weight of the 575. So on a 5 star rating for pedaling efficency and climbing I give a 4 starts. Lost of a star due to low BB and what it would take to get it up. And the effort to tuck in the HA of the fork so it would look like a cadillac climbing a hill. (Thank you Cane Creek)

    Descending. This is where the bike really shines the best. It's really a DH rider's pedal bike. Coming off a 08' jedi this 11' One is right up there as to the way it handles the Dh portions of the trail. Having that 135mm x 12mm axle in the rear has really stiffen things up well and just keeps your lines nice and steady. Can't really say anything,more new to as how it rides on the Dh side of things, cause this is where you can tell the bike was really made for. So no let down in this department. Besides having such low BB, once again, has you watching out how hard to land from jumps and drops, and your lines when you want to pedal through the chunk.
    Now this is where the only true con in this portion of my review. Since this bike pedals so well and really well through the chunk it's kinda hard to do when your pedals have a small margin of space to move when in the chunky stuff. So once again, got to fault the bike a little for being too low for my taste. Now with that said the bike can really keep it's speed really well through the chunk that you may not even need to pedal through it cause a little pumping on this bike goes along way. Most bikes, with this much travel, you got to put lots of effort when pumping but not the One. It's very responsive!

    As for jumping and flight time. I only got in a few moments in the air with in those 3-4 days of riding. But it flies and jumps like a Canfield bike. Almost flawless. Very steady in the air and nimble and easy to whip around. Bike holds up well to drops also and no flexing to note

    So this is just my first initial review of the bike for riding it for 3-4 days straight. It may change for the better or worse as I put more miles on her and ride alot more different terrain. Glad to have the oportunity to ride different, new, and old terrain in the those few days of riding in Moab and Phx.

    This is honestly what I felt and it could still be the new bike stoke talking. So take it for what it is a first initial review with only a few days of riding. I'm not saying that this is the end all bikes but it has greatly improved in the areas the 1st gen was lacking.
    My build on this bike is partly old parts that came from the 575 which moved to the 1st gen One now on to the V2. Only thing really new is the CK hubs on DT EX500. I had DT swiss 340's on 5.1d's. Just to give you a more real comparison from bike to bike.

    Sorry so long and hope this helps anyone on the fence.

    Thanks for the review doodoo. Lance told me I'd want the One instead of Jedi for what I'm riding, and you have confirmed it.

    Don't think BB height is going to bother me at all, I'm going with a 180mm tapered fork that will have some stack height. I've been on a 66 HA bike FR bike, and I'm stoked to go little slacker.

    I've been debating selling my trail bike to expedite building the One, and after your review I'm thinking that I can get away with making the One my only bike (except for the DJ, BMX, and road bikes )

    Christmas bike.

    2011 Canfield Bros &quot;THE ONE&quot; info-obione.jpg

    Almost finished. Need to wait for a new shock. With the 160mm fork and the old short shock (8.5" eye to eye), the bottom bracket is a little too low. ~12.5"-12.75". Also in the long travel setting, the tire will bottom out against the seat tube. But it's ready to ride when the proper shock comes in!

    SLX and XT drivetrain and brakes.
    Lyrik 160mm
    Chris King 1.5
    RaceFace AM bars
    Sunline V-One stem
    Hubs King Rear, Hope front
    AtomLab Pimplite rims.
    Blackspire Stinger chain guide with e-type derailleur mount to keep chain from fallin off to the inside.

    Here's what I have...

    ...so far.

    Titanium with Black links, the shock is just a place older for now.



    Da Fork.



    andaaa, the Brakes...



    More to come. Trying not to rely on the CC, so parts are trickling in.

    Ride Report

    I have gotten a few rides on the 2011 ONE. Mine bulit as a big guy "all mountain" bike. I'll get pictures up soon, probably. Been having too much riding don't really want to stop and take photos.

    Climbing: The 08 climbed great and the 11 still climbs much better than any bike I have had to date. The BB is a little low. And when climbing rocky sections of trail you may need to "ratchet pedal" once in a while. Low speed handling is very nice and predictable. You don't have that feeling of tipping over all of a sudden when you run out of momentum, a little hip thrust and you are over the obstacle.

    Descending: Fast, smooth, holds a line through rough stuff, carves turns very nicely. A friend was following me through a rock garden: I took it at speed, he stopped, he said that the suspension was working and I was rock solid on the bike, no drama. And that is exactly what I felt. What little air I do catch, bike seems to respond well to inflight adjustments.

    Build execution 08 vs 11: The 11 is much better built. The links are more robust. The 11top link is one piece (the 08 was multiple pieces), the bottom link is much wider on the 11, the rear triangle is more robust, the main frame is beefier. The 11 is by far a better execution. It was well worth the wait.

    I would recommend to the Canfields, if there are issues with meeting delivery dates, just be upfront about it. I work in an industry that is notorius for lateness. As long as you understand the problem and have a recovery plan, I am happy. But don't blow smoke up my keister.

    Got the Rock Shox Monarch Plus installed. BB still really low, did a rough measurement, and it sits ~12.75", takin it out for a spin tonight. My old bike a Turner 5 spot sits around 13.75" for comparison.

    Took it out for a couple loops at the "after work ride". Gettin used to the downhill handling, and dialing in the suspension still. Biggest surprise is how well it climbed. It actually climbed better than my TNT 5 spot. I thought that the slack head angle would make the steep technical climbs very difficult, but the bike tracked very well.

    BB is low and you need to change you riding style a little. You need to be careful when you pedal. I already ripped off one of the pins off my pedal. There are parts of the trail that I really like to hammer out of the saddle to keep the speed up, and needed to check that a little as the pedals were hitting the ground. I set up my monarch at 200psi at first (I weigh about 190lbs geared up) and needed to add an extra 20psi to keep the bb a little higher. Can really rail the berms and is great across the rock gardens. It flys differently than the Turner so need to get used to that, not that I do that all that often though.

    finally got my One built up

    so I bought the frame in March and after dealing with a flakey wheel builder (which set me back 8 weeks on a wheel set!) and multiple back ordered parts, it is complete. The build, I9 wheels with stans flow, chromag stem/bars, race face atlas cranks and an x9 drivetrain, avid codes. Rode it once on a xc trail and was blown away with how well it climbs, can't wait to get it out on trails with some features!

    hmm. always heard sapim spokes needed a fair bit of tension to be in spec and with the flows without eyelets and the recommendation from stans to run them at low tensions would have thought a wheelbuilder would have recommended a different spoke. any issues with yours? love sapim spokes but have only used them on mavic rims for this reason.

    nice bike btw. how do you find the bb height at 160mm travel?

    All around setup

    So far this is my favorite setup for riding everything under the sun aside from pure DH trails. 2011 Roco Air TST and 2011 66 ATA RC3 Evo Ti. Waiting on Hammerschmidt as it's tough to climb with a 1x9 (for me at least!). This weekend the X-Fusion Vector HLR and Boxxer goes back on for Northstar, It's amazing how versatile this bike is!

    it sucks that according to the head guy at chumba that all bikes that are built by pacific like canfied bros, banshee, niner and orbea to name a few are cheap bikes built at the same factory as walmart bikes and over priced compared to chumba bikes.

We do answer our phones, but we also don't take pictures of our bikes on the floor of a department store factory.

    its possible, money talks over there, and some people might be paying more than we are to get better service. i think our quality comes from one of the top factories over there who don't make any frames that retail for less than $1,000.00 and we pay a lot for our frames,

    whereas other bike companies produce their stuff at factories that also make department store bikes like diamondback (nothing against them i know ppl who owned one growing up), so the quality, in my opinion, is definitely different even though t he designs look kind of similar. for examples, this company carries a lot of different brands from low-end to high-end: http://www.pacific-cycles.com/product.asp

    nothing against it, its just how it is...so yea it depends
    there's the thread it's from. this is all in a thread that details how they stole a customers personal property. a total train wreck.

    Go back to the Chumba forum dude. Just because something is built at the same place as another doesn't mean the quality is the same. I actually have a Canfield One and have ridden the snot out of it and can assure you that it is of the highest quality. Chris and Lance's customer service is excellent----pre-sale and post-sale. That thread has nothing to do with "the One" which this thread is all about.

    qbert,

    It seems that you are still little delirious from your recent schooling over in the Chumba forum, it's clear your out of your comfort zone. So please keep your flames to yourself and go and lick your wounds elsewhere.

    and what schooling was that? i realize you are a chumba fanboi but since you also own a canfield bros bike built at the same factory that d00sh is slagging. i'm surprised you would defend him. my banshees are quality bikes and built at the same factory as the canfield bikes. i have a hard time reading the crap the chumba owner writes to slag his competition. obviously you don't mind his bull5h!t

    Sorry Qbert but you've been mis-informed. Pacific Cycle"S" is a high end manufacturer, where as Pacific Cycle is the "walmart" maker.

    Yes - http://www.pacific-cycles.com/

    Not - http://www.pacific-cycle.com/brands

    The Diamond Back frame that Pacific Cycles built was a $10,000 G-Box bike. Hardly walmart level. Crap, even there inhouse brand bikes sell for more than a $1000. $910 for a Carry Me kids bike is about a cheap as they go!!!

    The forums have gone over this before, I know it's confusing but seriously. I don't follow whats happening over in Chumba land but If thats what Oscar is spreading, that is very unprofessional. I have been at the factory to over see every production run. Every factory has there issues but as a company owner that wants the best products, I watch every step along the way and ensure a quality product. If your not there doing QA, I can see how all sorts of problems could arise. FYI - we use alot of different manufactures, each with there own specialty.

    thats the dude from chumba spreading that. i just wanted to inform canfield bros of it. thats a quote from oscar from chumbs spreading that bs in the chumba forum while slagging other brands. my banshee bikes are built at pacific cycles. i know the difference

    and here is who builds quality bikes. http://www.pacific-cycles.com/ for companies like banshee, orbea, niner, canfield bros and diamondback


    one "s" is all it takes for oscar and allan to try to hurt their competition. they know it too. but again for them it's much easier to bash the competition than put out a quality product and let it compete on its own merits. check out the forums for the other brands built at pacific. you wont see their owners stooping to oscar and allan's level or stealing items from their own customers.

    it doesn't matter where chumbas are made, they still have the worst ownership in the business. no class, no integrity and low sales. they'll die off all on their own

    Ok back to the ONE
    After observing the wife's ONE for a year, I'm finally going to get the answer the question none of you have been asking:
    Can a 60 year old boy find true happiness pedaling a 200mm travel bike on technical climbs?!?
    I know conventional wisdom says nope, you're gonna hate life, but truth is, the same thing was said about my 150mm bike. Spent extra moola to have a U-turn fork so it would climb...never use it and cant see where I'm going to be worried about climbs suddenly now.
    However, I have already considered properly designing a pull down lanyard for climbing to hold the fork at 175/180 mm if it just wont hunt at 200mm.

    Anyway, frame ordered medium Ti/ white links White 010 Boxxer WC purchased. Probably Vivid Air for the backend. Rest will be off my Pitch, so Raceface Next Carbon cranks, Specialized CF bars, XTR derailers and shifters. Elixir CR 203/180 brakes. Crossmax SX wheels KS i950 post

    Nice job. Just wait till you get it on the maiden voyage, it'll knock your socks off!

    I had my second ride on my One and while climbing a pretty steep and loose section all I could hear myself saying was, I can't believe it's in 7" and its climbing! Climbing just like my trail bike.

    I'm more than happy with this ride. I'll also get some "beauty" shots up this weekend.

    Thanks, my socks have already been knocked off at least 3 times by the ONE. 1st My wife's in ability to make her's pedal bob. Last night I experienced first hand the Canfield pedal lockout effect in my garage. And lastly the extreme suppleness, lack of stiction and general mega goosh factor is unbelievable, and I come from a motocross backround where upside down 12" travel forks etc are the norm. It a magnitude better than anything I've bounced on....I will probably have a serious OMG moment when I actually ride it tonight

    Got my first ride in today, and all I can say is how can the rest of the world NOT know how superior these bikes are?
    Todays ride was mainly to evaluate basic trail handling traits-
    Pretty much every aspect of the handling was a significant improvement from my mac'd out Pitch- a bike everyone loves and is considered pretty competent in the AM world.
    VERY stable(w/66 deg HA), bike went well thru deep sand, instead of plowing and squirming, when it slid, it slid evenly front and back. Really feels nice carving a turn, the suspension was obviously keeping the tires pinned to the trail and that really helped when it was root city. Was surprised that the bike seemed to have much less tendancy than most to stand up when using the front brake in a turn.

    Also, most importantly for climbing, both ends of the bike refused to give me any pedal bob. I expected the back end to do that but there's no fancy linkage to keep the Boxxer from bobbing BUT it didn't...I assume the rears resistance to bob keep the bike from starting to bob in the first place.

    I find the pedal force feels odd cause it feels like in addition to normal pedal forces, that I feel an anti-bob force or maybe it just that the bike doesnt move ANY when I pedal and I'm so used to getting at least a little reaction to hard pedaling that I'm interpretting that as a resisting force. Either way, its a different sensation.

    On an entirely different note, I had the wife hop on my bike since the seatpost adjusts easily and it appears(we'll double check on flat ground) that my medium '011 with 200mm travel has a lower standover than her '09 ONE with only 150mm travel.

    What is your BB height with the single crown fork? Weight?

    Btw, the German mag called "FREERIDE" did a 2011 ONE review. They rated it with a nice 9.5 out of 10.

    They really liked the handling, and the fact that it can be used for AM, Park, FR, and DH - efficiently. Other positive things the mention are rear-end stiffnes, the Virtual Pivot functionality, and the axle to axle length.

    They also liked how its build up "low", they do however stress out that they thought that the BB is a bit too low.

    The Review is posted as a PDF (in German), check it out here:

    Was the review with a 160MM fork or was it a 180MM?

    After Chris hooked my buddy and I up on Ones, I've been riding mine for the past month and absolutely love it! (Thanks also to V.P. and kameraguy for answering some of my Q's). BB is a little low as suggested by others, but I've quickly adjusted my riding style and it's not such a nuisance as it was the first week of riding - in fact the responsiveness of this bike is worth the BB height tradeoff IMO.

    I decided to try out running a Maxle instead of the pinchbolt stock axle (since I swap rim/tire combos out all the time), and it's been working flawlessly. Basically, I just added a shim between the gap in the dropout and tightened the pinch bolt until it was snug. Then adjusted the maxle to fit:

    I definitely recommend an air shock for AM, makes the bike propel when trails go up.

    Glad you like the blog : )

    That is the one bike I truly want. All I need is for one of you to sell yours in a couple months so I can afford one! Please!

    Putting together a "One"

    Parts are starting to arrive for my 2011 "One". Mainly waiting for the frame now!

    This is the plan:
    (please excuse the german-ness, I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what it all means though):


    Most weights confirmed on scale. "0g" means weight is included elsewhere.
    Some of the bits are from my parts bin.

    I've also got a 11-34t cassette, and I'm planning to get a remote seatpost (when a proper one comes out) to make it climbable, but until that happens it's going to be a DH-only setup.


    16.3kg / 36lbs seems pretty good for a 8" DH bike, although I'm running pretty light wheels. I'm hoping the dual ply tires will protect the rims, and I'm generally not too hard on wheels.

    Comments / improvements?
    wanted: Cannondale Lefty w/ V-brake studs

    It's pretty spot on as advertised at 13.5" with the 66 ATA. Weight was around 34.5lbs as pictured. Now with the Hammerschmidt AM and XO shifter, it is about 36lbs. I guess my build isn't the lightest possible

    Anyone using the Cane Creek double barrel on their One...Looks good and I really like what I have used, but a little steep in price to buy without any rider feedback.

    Had a question about front der. i will be using X-9 shifters/rear der. and plan to run 2x9 and all could find here is the shimano option for the front does any one know the one i would need from sram ? Thanks

    The shimano front der will work with your sram shifter.

    Thanks that would save me a lot of time but i thought sram was 1-1 so wouldn't it shift funny or is that irrelevant because i am only using it for 2 speeds ?

    Also is the shimano slx number m661 the one i need ? Thanks

    Sram makes a direct mount, in a 2 and 3 ring setup in 10 speed only. It's designation is DM (direct mount) and HO (1-bolt + anti-rotation slot)

    Can a 2x10 front der. be used on a 2x9 set up ? I will be running 2x9 X-9 shifters/rear der. on my "One" and would prefer to keep all Sram stuff if possible other wise i will just order the Shimano. Thanks

    Just got it in this afternoon and built up. Needs a bit of tweeking but rides nimble.

    With dh casings and deemax it sits at 36.5 and with the i9s and free ride casings its 34.6

    We the people ...

    Got the first small ride in and very impressed, initially I was expecting some suffering from pedalling up and was comparing it to a 2010 sxt I just sold so I was not in favor of the one and was not buying into hype. Basically I went in with a bit of a negative attitude, and came out right off the bat "holy $h!t".
    The bike while sitting seemed to have little or no real pedal bob, I sat and spun up the road cranking and then on the trail what i noticed right off the bat was power transfer from pedal stroke to ground was effecient and felt like a short travel bike.
    On trail and pedaling up I was worried it would hit a rock under load and buck the bike up and with it feeling this effecient like a platform would, nope it stays active on hits going up. It doesn't wallow after hitting a rock while pedalling and get weird or inneffecient, it stays the course planted.

    So it could be a solid bike for a super d maybe not a xc race but it definently could do well if needed too.

    As far as rocks I was expecting some hanging up at speed in the rocks and drop into rocks one even at full bottom it didn't buck forward it was supple and pushed through really easy my fork was set up for the sxt so it banged me around a little (sxt ha was steeper and sat a bit more over front so it was upped PS I a smidge)
    I overshot the small box drop and bottomed pretty solid going into berm bike handled it great.

    Cornering was easy to find the pocket and is a very centered and wide pocket so its easy to get into position quickly and the bike corners fast.

    Now my suspension has not been messed with at all, its all over the place and needs to be dialed I just slappd it on and rode, no idea where anythings at and definently need to tweak it a little but the bike performed flawless.

    It is stable off jumps the doubles arent big but you come in them from berms and exit them from berms so at speed its kind of like a airborne luge in and out. Bike did great I expected some off tilt or not being able to adjust and correct quickly but that was not the case.

    Edited: after trying other shocks and gunning for more dh the vivid is more am/fr

    I have other shocks that I'll b swapping and forks over the winter for racing and different applications just to really get a feel for this bike. I have the stuff already and craig at avalanche is setting 2 different tunes on my shocks next weekso I can swap out and dial it.
    If I didn't have all the other suspension I'd be just as happy on the vivid air, total bada$$ shock.

    It needs to get 165 cranks I'm running 175 now and pedal down outside berm I smacked a rock but ratchet pedaling is easy since all my bikes are 13.5 - 13.7 so I'm pretty used to it anywase.
    I smack rocks all laid out anywase so its nothing new, the bike is truly a one stable bike for a am/fr/dh"r"

    Great review - I was on the fence with respect to this bike.

    A bit off topic, a few weeks ago I converted my Knolly Podium to a single crown 180mm Float Fork and a Vivid Air - this was a pretty amazing setup and echoes the thoughts Bullcrew. The Knolly Podium is low and long like the Canfield One - the air fork and shock may the long relatively stable bike much more poppy and fun while still providing the stability. I am loving the vivid air and fox float for the long travel pedal bikes!!!

    Yes.
    Mines 34.5 with enduro rims (industry nine) so you could go stans, a fox float 160 36 and schwalbe Hans dampf and a few things like bars to carbon lighter stem and easily be there.

    Nice builds bullcrew and bigcrs!

    I've had mine for a month now, and in continues to amaze me. Long and stable through fast sections, absolutely eats steeps, but you can still throw it from turn to turn like a 4X bike. Must be the low center of gravity. Whatever it is, it works.


    (37.2lbs with dual ply Minions F+R)

    The Elka is absolutely brilliant as well - I am constantly fiddling with the 40s up front, trying to get them to keep up with the rear end.
    Uphill, I have the same impressions as bullcrew. No or little bob when sitting down, a bit of movement when standing up - that is with a soft DH suspension setup.

    Last weekend I took this out to it's first DH race. Got 4th in my class, not too bad for an out of shape rider on a pedally course.


    As for components, two parts will probably get changed sooner or later:
    1) Cranks. I want to try 165s, to see if they'll allow me to pedal through a few more sections on our DH tracks here. The Hones are 175 which is a bit much. 170s would be a good compromise for AM riding I guess.

    2) Rear rim. I'm running ZTR Flows, maybe that was a bit optimistic....
    The front is holding up, but after a month of DH on our rocky tracks, the rear has got more dents than a golf ball. To be fair though, it is still round, just the side walls are getting destroyed.

    The one blows me away! I just got mine and it exceeded every expectation. I rode it side by side the 2010 flatline and it was a better ride, faster, more plush, not quite as good at sharp corners. I don't think there is another bike like it anywhere.

    The One just wants to go fast. It instantly gets up to full speed, with almost no effort. Your control at high speeds is confidence inspiring. I've never had more fun in my life. It also climbs way better than any downhill/freeride bike I've ever come across.

    Running a cane creek double barrel now and will swap back and forth after dialing in the shocks.
    Shocks being used and reviewed are cane creek double barrel, vivid air, avalanche woodie with soft spring on high speed blow off and light tune as well as a avalanche dhs with Med spring on blow off comp side with light tune.

    Also aside of the fox talas 36 180 I'll be slapping a angle set on and running a boxxer wc 2011with a avalanche cartridge..

    If you want a low center of gravity for more stability and control then a low bb is a must. I think it is well worth the trade-off. It adds to the ride on many levels. Lots of bikes had bb this height, it just takes getting used to.

    Here is a little video of the One in action along with the Flatline. I love the One. I've never ridden anything like this before. I can't find anything I don't like about it. Fast, plush, climbs great, and all the right geometry. It goes over anything and it only weighs 37.6 lbs.

    Just an FYI on those wanting to raise your BB a tad for AM use... I just recently acquired a 9X2.75 DHX Air shock for AM riding, and am using it in the upper hole (7" travel position). Raised the BB about 3/8". Shock is too long, however, to fit into the lower (8" travel) hole. Apparently this is a standard shock size for the Specialized SX trail.

    Got my "ONE" finished up now my Yelli Screamy won't be so lonely Haha hoping to take a test ride tomorrow night at cowles mtn. Then SJT in a couple weeks. only changes i see in the near future are shorter 165mm cranks (using old 175mm stylo's i had) and also front 661 der. is a little funky and slot seems kind of short and sits high but is still functional.

    Thanks again to Chris Canfield for taking care of me and the both brothers for building such sick bikes. Let the testing begin

    Thanks and that was the plan seeing how my YS covers 80% of my local riding i sold my other bikes and bought "THE ONE" for the day's i need a fs FR/DH bike and think i should have most styles of riding covered locally - And if not i blame the rider

    I've had mine for a month now, and in continues to amaze me. Long and stable through fast sections, absolutely eats steeps, but you can still throw it from turn to turn like a 4X bike. Must be the low center of gravity. Whatever it is, it works.


    (37.2lbs with dual ply Minions F+R)

    The Elka is absolutely brilliant as well - I am constantly fiddling with the 40s up front, trying to get them to keep up with the rear end.
    Uphill, I have the same impressions as bullcrew. No or little bob when sitting down, a bit of movement when standing up - that is with a soft DH suspension setup.

    Last weekend I took this out to it's first DH race. Got 4th in my class, not too bad for an out of shape rider on a pedally course.


    As for components, two parts will probably get changed sooner or later:
    1) Cranks. I want to try 165s, to see if they'll allow me to pedal through a few more sections on our DH tracks here. The Hones are 175 which is a bit much. 170s would be a good compromise for AM riding I guess.

    2) Rear rim. I'm running ZTR Flows, maybe that was a bit optimistic....
    The front is holding up, but after a month of DH on our rocky tracks, the rear has got more dents than a golf ball. To be fair though, it is still round, just the side walls are getting destroyed.
    Thanks lelebebbel,

    I'll be making some changes as well pretty soon,

    - Cranks, probably Race Face Atlas FR, 165's
    - Wider bars, currently at 28"
    - Ti spring
    - New 180 fork, not too sure which make yet. I like the look of the 66's though.
    - Wheelset, I wanna keep it pretty light for the search & destroy missions, going to go tubeless for the first time so probably a set of Flow's on some angry bee's.
    - And to complement the Flow's I'm going try Continentals Trail Kings 2.2, BC's wet winter should be a good testing location.

    Now to the most recent addition to the arsenal is the avalanche woodie, I had craig do light tuning with a soft spring on the high speed blow off which is dialed because it only effects 30% of the oil the rest is contolled still by valving which allows the shock to smooth the square edge hkts out without losing the ability to do a drop and have the shock slowdown.

    Some beautiful ONE's in here! I think its the ticket for the pedal fest DH races. I love my Jedi, but I see a ONE in my future.

    How's the 9t Bull Crew ? ?

    Haven't done the microdrive yet but will, the wheel is being laced up.

    Update after tonight's ride:

    Hands down the best shock by a long shot for plush suspension for dh racing and getting the job done is the avalanche woodie with the soft high speed blow off spring.
    I'll have a solid review shortly with all 3 shocks and forks etc.

    I literally mobbed a nasty rock section tonight and the bike is so dialed for rough stuff and still pops off jumps, pedalling suffers a smidge but turn the low sped up and it helps alot or drop it to the 7" setting for pedaling and no worris BUT going down this current combo is nasty (almost like cheating). I rolled a dh tire tubeless at 33 psi almost clean off the deemax in the corners the bike digs in and motors.

    HANDS DOWN THE MOST VERSATILE BIKE FROM A DH'RS STANDPOINT IVE RIDDEN.

    It is without a question fully capable of nasty dh courses, not just pedally ones. I bottomed 2 Tim's tonight on nasty nasty hits and it wasn't bad at all. I can up the hi speed a little and take care of it but it is a bike to be reckoned with.


    I took off the dual ring set up and the reverb post for a race this Sunday (dh) and miss that addition lol.

    OK a thought on the avalanche.
    Yes it can bottom but being a rarely bottomed one in the past I'm OK with it, I want to use all the travel from time to time.
    Upping the high speed will only effect the travel to a certain point it won't make the threshold for blow off any higher that's mechanically controlled by a spring. However there are a couple things to do on this bike for assisting (i didnt feel it as a problem) The threshold by either turning the spring preload a smidge or dropping it to the 7" mode which is what I plan on doing anywase.
    I will note I run a softer spring for my weight than what I should because I like to stay stuck to the ground and haul @$$. I do freeride as well and even then I'd slap it to the 7" mode for the increase in spring rate so for me it is like having the best of both worlds.
    Now here is a tip for the avalanche and pedalling with a soft stup, because we want to be able to slaughter downhill doesn't man we are screwed in the pedal bob arena, the bike has an inherent platform of stable pedalling with the links so turn the slow speed screw in on the avalanche and it will DEFINENTLY, make the pedaling effecincy go up. There is a way to have one shock make a wide range fitment fo these bikes.

    If pedalling is your thing mainly then I would reccomend the vivid air, a good shock but wasn't completely sold on the dh sections it lacked the deep feeling and plush soaking it up feel. I can see how it would play really well with the jedi for dh but on the one not for my style.

    Just a idea of riding, I don't take the smooth lines I'm an old school mxr I'll go for the nasty line and get on top, I like to pedal out of berms and while the bike is decompressing from a drop sneak a pedal stroke or 2 in. I feel that the smoothest way is to find a big rock in the garden and send it over the top of stuff now the landings can be nasty but that's where this takes over.
    I do like riding up from time to time and will do a flat or semi xc ride just to grab saddle time and hang with buddies as well as free ride and hit the jumps.
    For this reason that's why this bike fits the bill, there's not a daily dose of lift assisted riding and total gnar when I walk out my front door, so to be versatile and not feel like I brought the wrong bike for a run with the guys this one fills the "I'm married and the wife won't let me buy multiple bikes" situation. (added: I would take this bike to bootleg, schwietzer, tamarack, tunnel and any other resort without feeling outgunned. This bike is completely capable of hanging it all out)

    Got my One in time for me to hit up whistler in July and took off my 170mm lyrik and slapped on my boxxer I had waiting for my Jedi.. Got rid of the front der. and put a bit of a burlier wheelset. Bike just loves to jump and handled everything the second lift (upper mtn) I could hit. My skills are probably nothing to write home about but the bike sure made me ride like a pro. I just had an old 08' DHX 5.0 and the bike and shock handled everything very well. Kept the bike in the 8inch mode and had a blast riding. I am glad I had the one it was the best for whistler for me. I was bummed my jedi did not come in time for the trip, but truyly happy after the trip I was left with having to use the One instead. I hit some big things out there that I probably would have never hit but the bike does so well in the steeps and in the air. The One killed the Canadian Open DH trail, and just rocked Shclyer and Rock City like it was candy!

    Pretty sweet builds. I'm running my One in 8in mode with the x-fusion and a 180mm dorado up front and im pretty stoked on it. I'm pretty seriously thinking about moving the dorado and the heavy wheels (36h 440s) over to a jedi and rebuilding the One in 7in mode with the 170 lyrik, an xfusion vector air, and one of the new varial headsets @ 65ish.

    What kind of HTA are you running your 7in lyric build? Pedal strikes an issue at all?

    Kind of like too see more builds considering there's a fair amount of the ones out there and a hand full of builds in here.
    Here it is ready for the race Sunday (fontucky winter series)
    36.4 with the reverb (a godsend for the wall pedal section )

    I'll get action pics up next week.

    Crappy cell phone pics, but you get the idea - Dorado, X-fusion, 36h 440s laced to MTX33s, atlas cranks, mostly saint group otherwise. I toyed with the idea of the angleset, but went with the cane creek 40 - 63.5 HTA, 13" BB. Couldn't be much happier.

    Looks good, wow 13" bb, mines at 13.6 and feels good with 170 cranks.

    Some updates:
    Fox 36 Van
    Angleset at +1.5 degree - head angle is probably at 66 deg (small lower stack)
    Canfield AM\FR Wheelset

    The one pedals AM really well with the above setup. I've been rolling around in 8" mode and I'm having very few problems with rock strikes. The weight is the only thing that slows me down uphill (37lbs or so) but it climbs exceptionally well.

    The downhills are outrageous---the X-Fusion is so nice and plush. The VAN up front is much better than the TALAS I had on there previously. Don't think I will ever buy another TALAS again.

    We've got almost the same bike set-up! Love how they handle. We need some more people giving reviews on mtbr to bring up the ratings on the one. Some xc guy brought the ratings down This is one of the most amazing bikes ever made and people need to know it.

    An action shot from today's race couple over shots coming in too hot cost me severely and spectators had to get me and bike back on course (2 times lol)




    And gwin kicked it over with troy (foes) and I so I made him do the happy shout out. He rocked it solid today.

    Finally got a chance to break in my new "THE ONE" yesterday at cowles mtn,Conditions could not have been better and i decided to climb/hike to the peak which was a little loose towards the top but was nice and tacky on the way back after the fire road and the fun stuff started.

    Bike handles INSANE and even in the 8" setting i was running i could not believe how well it pedaled once you sat and had the sag set, I know the 7" setting would be fine for cowles but had to try it and it stuck like it was on rails now i just need to work on the rider I am hoping to get some more seat time in this weekend. Thanks again to the Brothers for building such bad arse bikes.

    Some nice pics in here boys. The ONE truly is a special bike. There are not many bikes that can pedal better especially for a 8'' bike. We have numerous team members and customers using them as their DH race bike, as well as long travel all-mountain rigs. It fits the bill for so many on different levels. I will be doing some back to back DH testing against my JEDI this year. For those who still want ONE, we have a handful of large's left. Next run will be out spring time !

    How does the The One compare to the 2010 Jedi? I am liking the sound of The One for the pedal platform and my large Jedi feels small for me on fast DH stuff, great for throwing around though. I am away from home alot so the Jedi only sees a couple of months riding every year, so practicaly I am lining things up for change out only late next year.
    The rearward path of the Jedi was the big selling point so I am interested how The One compares in the Gnar and square edges.
    I just want to ride.

    Go with avalanche chubbie with soft spring on hi/lo speed adjuster and if its pedally go with the 7" setting run a bit softer shock than needed and in the 8" matched with the avy it plows and in 7" it makes a stellar freeride set up.

    2 nd shock choice would be the double barrel.

    BC - I didnt catch the comparason. I know you had a 2010 Jedi, not sure if you had the 2011 with travel options, shorter stays and all that I would like. Curious to know dirrect comparasons between the 2010 Jedi and the new One. You should have a good basis for info since you have run both bikes with various shocks. If I could validate it I would really like to shove a Woodie on the Jedi but I will probably ride it 2 months next year and I am thinking of selling it since it really does feel a little smal, I dont feel center and I am either of the bars or off the back tire.
    I just want to ride.
