    Cool-blue Rhythm The announcement you've been waiting for...


    Dear Canfield Crew,

    You can read all about it here:

    Cheers,
    Lance

    Awesome stuff, Lance! Thanks for the official update.

    My N9 has been patiently waiting for a full squish partner...

    "New bikes are slated to be available by spring 2020, with details and pre-order options expected by the end of the year."

    Good timing, I just started test riding bikes from other brands at the shop I ride for. Now I know that there is something coming from Canfield to replace my balance and the riot I will wait a touch longer.

    Good to hear something. I had been waiting for rebuild kits for pedals for a long long time, and ended up buying other pedals. I'll get a few kits so I can get back on the Canfield ones soon. My Riot was one of my favorite all time bikes.

    Look forward to seeing what's new and best of luck.

    YES! So excited to see this happening.

    Lance is the most genuine dude and his dedication to making bikes is beyond commendable. We have stayed in touch over the years since my departure and I've been waiting for this day to celebrate the return of Canfield.

    I wish everyone involved the best of luck and most of all... Stoked to see some new bikes!

    Cheers,

    Vin

    So stoked on this news! The Riot is probably my all time favorite bike even though I don't get to ride it enough (auxiliary bike that lives in Santa fe) Hoping for a new short travel 29er to compete with my following mb..

    Glad to know you are still around.

    Lance if you read this, with Chris maintaining the patents to the suspension, how does that affect you as far as future improvements to CBF

    I'll be licencing CBF from Chris. I will be able to develop new models which could be done alone or with Chris's insight, depending on what is need. I have more models than I have time to design right now so I'm pumped to start getting some new models out. Truthfully, it's a system that would be tough to improve on. At this point it's in the details and that's what gives each model it's own personality.

    I'm so glad I've waited, every time I've test rode a bike it didn't feel right. I almost bought an Evil Wreckoning. Once I decided no to my wife bought it lol.

    Yea, I know it's probably not going to happen, but a baby Riot would be sweet. Liked my Riot, just honestly don't need that much travel. Don't care about the 2 water bottles.

    Iíd like to see a Riot that is stiffer, adjustable chainstay length, adjustable suspension travel/progression, adjustable HTA/reach, aluminum, and made in the states. make it boutique and donít cheap out. Iíd pay more to get more.

    One more question for you Lance, will the new bikes be available in Europe?

    Got a 1 gen Nimble from Steffen at Canfield Europe some years ago and have since owned a Yelli (that i deeply regret selling) and currently ride a Riot.

    I'd just take a stiffer Riot with the ability to go longer on the fork. I'd like it to take different shock to change travel.

    Yeah. I feel for them. Sounds like they worked it out as best they could. They couldíve just sold it and cashed out. Then some corporation could have slowly bled it to death. Thereís a bunch of us that are with you Lance. Bring it!

    So I'm guessing that since Revel Bikes are up and running, Canfield can be reignited? I hope so, cause I still love my Riot. The suspension that Chris implemented on the Revel bikes is absolutely amazing. Now I'm not sure if Canfield will still use the same design, or if a new and improved geometry will be unveiled. Super stoked whatever unfolds!

    So what is the business relationship between Chris at Revel and Lance at Canfield? Completely separate or is there some "cross-engineering"?

    As Lance has stated in his announcement on the Canfield bikes site (as well as the press release out in the bike media) Canfield Bikes will continue to use CBF suspension. Chris Canfield will possibly have some hand in future designs, but that looks like a case my case basis.

    As far as I know, Chris' relationship with Revel is limited to the CBF suspension design.

    This is awesome news. I have been wanting to find a large Balance instead of my medium. I'll wait it out and see what models you bring out, Lance. I was really considering heading the darkside and getting an SB140.

    If you watch the Worldwide Cyclery video about CBF and Revel Bikes, Chris briefly talks about the nuance between a Canfield and a Revel.

    This is all true and I wish we could have sorted it out quicker but it really did turn out as good as it could have. New Skull bikes for everyone.

    Yeah man, I've been waiting for a long time for a simple pedal rebuild kit.

    They ready to order online?

    On a side note: Has anyone tried putting a Works Angleset Headset on their Riot?
    I recently did this (1 deg.) slacker and all I can say is "I wish I had done it from day one" I liked my Riot before but now it's my favorite between her and my Balance. Even got me thinking of selling my Balance for seed money for a future Riot. Just can't get myself to calling it a Toir.

    I run a 160mm fork on my Riot... almost does the same thing, and more travel!

    Same here. Sometimes the front end feels a bit light while climbing steep stuff, but definitely worth it for the fun bits on the way down.

    I've thought about a longer fork and an angle set. I dont want my BB any higher (or lower really) but a longer fork makes me feel top heavy in turns.

    I love my EVO and I'm looking at FS. Hoping to see a nice mid travel 140mm lighter trail FS bike with the Canfield goodness. Take the current frames and modernize a small amount. The Revel Rascal is pretty cool, an AL version EI (slightly and lightened) modernized Tior might hit the spot.

    Going to put my Riot 29er front end at 160mm on my Balance. See how it feels. Then leave it at 160 when I put it back on the Riot. See how it feels. Then put my Balance 27.5 rear wheel on the Riot. Slack and bottom bracket back close to stock. Sounds interesting. Already ran the 27.5 rear on the Riot with fork at 140mm and liked it.
