    Dear Canfield Crew,

    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.

    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.

    Last year we had so much rain (90day 2 day break 63 days)riding gravel was the closest we could get to dirt. I don't know about a gravel bike but a slacker cyclocross bike might be fun. I'd replace my road bike with one. Most gravel bikes are long in the chainstays.

    I hear ya... rain has screwed up any consistent riding here in Texas.

    How does it climb? The terrain here is a lot of technical up and down, not much real DH or super sketchy sections. If I were back in SoCal I'd probably do it, but not sure its right for North East Riding I have.

    The Riot is surprisingly a good climber. As long as you keep the fork travel at 140, and have a lockout on your shock, it's actually quite impressive.

    I've never felt the need for a lock out. My Riot peddles as well as most DW link bikes and I get to have a coil. The cushcore and DD tires are what slows me down.

    I e for the riot now but was curious about slacking it out to 65.5 with the aNgleset.

    With my sapphire 34 and itís super smooth OTT the riot climbs technical terrain as good as the Hightower 2 I demoed. I just canít leave well enough alone and have been tempted to slack it out some.

    I'm not a strong climber when it comes to long sustained climbs, I tend to poop out but when it comes to short techy climbs I'm much stronger. That being said, when climbing the front wheel does lift a little easier if your trying to do so. I don't feel any difference when climbing tech stretches or switch backs and I'm not concerned about being able to lift the front end easier. What I do love is the better high speed stability. What "Works Components"
    does that's pretty cool is on their headset's external bottom cup, it's longer then the Cane Creek's external bottom cup that came with the Riot by about 1/8 inch. So in turn when the front end gets slacker (in my case 1 degree) the wheel base gets longer, your BB drops and Seat Tube will steepen a bit. But with the Works longer cup when you put your fork back on it lifts the head tube and puts the BB and Seat tube back to where I don't notice a difference. I do notice a difference when descending and it's made my Riot almost the perfect bike! My Riot is 33.1lbs. By the way I from the San Francisco Bay Area, so I ride all over Northern California.

    My Canfields climb better than any bike Iíve ridden. No lock out, with heavy DD DHF front and rear and coil. Iíll take the weight penalty. I go up slow and down fast. Ha

    Honestly I've been thinking where are the new bikes since this was announced. Heck I've been thinking where are the new bikes since 2016! So I understand the impatience. It's been a long time coming and announcing that something is going to happen without any real details only goes so far in satisfying people.

    Hopefully we'll have the details before Dec is done.
    Safe riding,

    I understand that, but if they took this long to reach an agreement on the restructuring, then expecting info on new bike within the week is unrealistic.

    It's not about being realistic. It's about expressing how we are feeling.

    I see it as excitment. The reasoning center of my brain says I'm probably not going to even know what's going to be available until around New Years. The kid in me wants to know now! Especially since I almost bought a bike, started seeing signs of things to come and decided not to buy it. As soon as I made my decision my wife bought the bike for herself lol. So I'm a jealous kid wanting my new toy!

    I almost thought this was a new Nimble 9, with that paint scheme, on their new Facebook. Then I realized it's a 2013-15 N9 (the front of the toptube is hydroformed, for one) with a really nice custom paint job that lacks "Brothers" on the downtube. Had me there for a moment.

    I'd bet the frame details have been ironed out at this point, and somewhere in Asia, there are people laying carbon strips (or stacking dimes) as quickly as they possible can to get your frame to you by spring.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I don't doubt that.
