    Canfield Riot Photo Thread

    Hey Guys,

    There are a lot of sweet Riot builds strewn throughout the original Riot thread.

    Lets get them all in a place where everyone can check them out and does not have to go through 60+ pages of comments!

    Please post yours up, and I'll add mine to the mix as soon as it shows up

    In the meantime, this will have to do

    SO AWESOME to see Riots out in the wild! This has been a project Chris and Lance have been wanting to bring to the market for a long, long time and it has been very rewarding to see the Riot come to fruition. Early reports are our riders are as stoked as we are and thank you all for your support! Without our rad customers, we'd still be building a few bikes a year in Chris's basement. You guys seriously ROCK!

    Thanks Dusty for starting this thread.

    Pretty sure you mean "rioting on the edge of your seat". Balancing would be in another thread...

    Still happy with my color choice, but the raw looks really good. Much better than I thought it would turn out.

    Don't get me wrong - I am certain that black/green is still the fastest color combo.

    I thought those tracks looked familiar. Maybe I'll see you on the trail sometime. You'll be easy to spot on that steed, and hopefully I'll have my gawdawful orange following before the snow flies in earnest so I should be easy to spot as well. Beautiful bike, and if the XLs had been ready before spring I might have gone that route as well.

    These are all some gorgeous bikes. Sadly my Yeti SB95 was recently stolen , but on the flip side I get to go bike shopping . The Riot is at the top of my list but would love to see one in person and get a feel for it before ordering.

    If anyone lives near Boulder, CO and wants a free 6-pack or something else to let me look at their bike I would be greatly appreciated. PM me if you are interested and keep the pics coming.

    Very nice. What rear shock are you using? Looks like a xfusion vector coil from what I can tell.

    Yep Avy'd Van RC. There's a coil in that fork as well, which is soon to be Avy'd also.

    Jealous. I want a coil fork.

    Speaking of forks, I wonder if Craig could make a cartridge for the upcoming Xfusion Revel...

    I don't think it's needed. The rough cut is a legit damper, shim stacks inside that bladder. Im leaning towards having Craig retune the charger. Some more maintenance than the open bath cart but a nicely tuned bladder (woodie) has it's advantages.

    So far so good, the combo seams nicely balanced. Haven hit any of the bigger stuff yet, yesterday's ride was a shake down. The shocks sag is correct, I almost have the settings identified so all-in-all I'm pretty pretty close to having the shock dialled.

    And the fork is great. Though I find I'm in between a x-firm and firm Lyrik springs. I ran the firm (blue) spring on yesterday's ride, though once I got home I dropped the x-firm (black) in. We'll see how it goes today. Regardless, I'll be sending it off to Avy to really iron out the wrinkles.

    Here is a Riot in small. Weight 32.8lbs. It was my first complete build, took 4 days both frustrating and rewarding, made every rookie mistake, I'm a better bike mechanic for it. PHASE 2 Next- tweaking all the settings and hoping it doesn't fall apart on the first ride.

    5 PRs today. Still working up the confidence for bigger stuff, but railed the DH track here and I had some fun on the jump line. It's better at being a bike than I am at being a rider.

    few more rides under the belt -- very capable bike but fear an old age is holding me back (rather than the bike :-)

    It's a Riot!!

    I got my first ride in today. It rips! And, I'm very happy with how it climbs.
    I'll have my suspension fully dialed by next ride, I think. Got the InLine done today (have used one on my Yeti for past year, so familiar with the tuning). Gotta work on the Stage setup next.

    Pretty burly build:
    MRP Stage
    RF 35mm stem / RF Next 760mm (35mm clamp) bar
    RF Turbine Cranks 175 / Hope bottom bracket
    GX 11 speed shifter, derrailleur, cassette
    9point8 150mm dropper post
    Stan's Flow EX rims on DT Swiss hubs (moved from old bike)
    Maxxis Minion F/R
    XT brakes
    Red links weren't my first choice, but I like the shade of red more than expected.

    Edit -
    Weighing in about 32.4 pounds (large frame)... exactly the same as my previous bike (which was 20mm less rear travel).

    Now that I have a few rides in, I am loving this bike

    The bike has been fantastic so far. It is a magic carpet ride. It is my first time on a MRP Stage and it is such a better fork out of the box than the Pike. I love the on the fly adjustability. The in-line has been great for me thus far (knock on wood). What I have really loved is that this things takes tight switchbacks even better than my 27.5 bikes and my Yelli. My only complaint thus far is that it is a little on the heavy side for this 140lbs rider. That said, it will claw up anything, so I am willing to take the weight. If I want any uphill PRs, I will ride my 23.8 lbs Anthem.

    Online, can't recommend them yet, the size was off a little, they are still trying to get it right. Size of graphics was changed by the factory during production.

    Nice! Dig the stealth look.
    Since the raw frames have black removable stickers, can you get them from Canfield?

    That would be a good source, had mine done months ago before production.

    Was going to wait until I had my 150 dropper and new rims to post pics, but looks like both are back ordered for a while. Last clean shots I have of her. Absolutely love this bike!

    How do you like the 9point8 post? This is next on my shopping list, 150mm travel for a 30.9mm post, only one on the market.

    I love it.
    I used their previous/first product (the 'Pulse' dropper) on my previous bike for 18 months. Knew all along that when I got a new stealth-routing-friendly frame, I would use 9point8 again. The Fall Line is pretty awesome, and I'm definitely liking the 150mm drop... coming from 100mm drop. It's a big difference--more than I expected.
    I would agree with the pinkbike.com review yesterday that the Fall Line takes a little bit of work to get installed. But, I've found that to be the case with all droppers.
    TL;DR - It's a great post, cool company, and I've always been impressed and happy with my interactions with the 9point8 folks.

    it may likely be the best 150mm travel 30.9mm post, but it is definitely not the only one... KS makes a 150mm in 30.9 Lev, both Integra and regular, and Giant too makes the new Contact Switch SL in 150x30.9

    The current Inline issues + wasn't ready to go coil,so I just sent it to Craig. I talked to him before doing it and he thinks it'l be fine for the riding I do.
    Riding season is almost over so if I'm not happy with it, I'll have the money for a Chubie or Woodie next spring.

    Super happy with the Woodie. No complaints on the climbs at all. Haven't touch any of the adjustments from how Craig has it set up.

    So cool I used to like the buzz of the high POE hubs but I got over that pretty quick. Now I grease the hell out of my pawls/star ratchets to make 'em run as quiet as possible. I'd love to givr the Onyx hub a try. Any ideas about their long term reliability?

    They seem pretty bullet proof to me. Haven't heard of any failures. I've read a bit about the tamdem guys swearing by them. Can't get much harder on a hub than that. And almost totally drag free, my wheel will spin forever. They've got great customer service too...

    No I ended up painting over the white graphics and putting the decals over that, once you get past the painting over a new frame, your options or whatever you want. Also before I put the decals I used Goo Gone to remove the paint to see if there would be any damage to the frame. Paint came off easily without any change to the anodized black.

    To black out the fork I used black plastidip rattlecan. I used VHT SP652 Satin Black for the frame. I use this for all my black anodized frames. Decent match.

    I got to ride both the Riot and the 2016 Balance @ Bootleg over the Thanksgiving holiday... Both were awesome on the steep, rocky sections. Balance felt very good when pointed down, but the Riot seemed to flow over the rocks a bit better- more than likely due to the larger wheel. As far as pedalling, both bikes just killed it. Climbed like mountain goats.... pretty much everyone who came back after demoing the bikes couldn't stop sh_t grinning and raving how much more confident and faster they were on the trails. Mind you, these people all had very nice AM style bikes and I would say 95% were local riders so know the trails.
    Personally, I own all the Brothers bikes, have been to Whistler on my Jedi and loved it. But I am planning another trip up next year and am thinking I will just take the Riot up to shred. Yes I know there will be sections I won't be able to hit as fast as on the Jedi... but who cares. Everywhere else the Riot is just gong to kill it!! Super stable in the air as well as being INSANELY nimble in the tight switchbacks!!!!

    What he said. The Riot is extremely capable and versatile. It's in a league of its own.

    My riot will be seeing Enduro races this year as well plenty of days at keystone bike park. Have to get the most out of a season pass after all.

    Like I said, the Riot felt a little smoother probably due to the larger wheel size. The Balance is definitely a dh feeling bike on the way down...

    The sizing issue was between us and Canfield, we are working to resolve it, as the factory resized the graphics without consent. 2016 should be no problems however.

    It feels really nice. The avalanche pike cartridge helps to keep the forks high in its travel and although not as plush as the standard charger cartridge it's takes the big and square edged hits beautifully and mows through the rock gardens. Matches up really well with the chubie. Perhaps my mind is playing tricks on me but I feel that the chubie pedals better than the db inline.

    It cost a lot but I'm really happy with the avalanche upgrades

    The chubie has little if any stiction compared to the db inline and works much better than an air shock on the small bumps. Also coils are reliable and tend to not be as service intensive compared to air shocks.

    This is why I bought a chubie. Others have avalanche gear in their riots and may have other info / experiences

    I've a Jade ready for my upcoming riot... I'm sold on coil shocks, I love their linear rate (both climbing and descending) and the superb small bump compliance

    It's the ability to have a shock tuned specifically for you, your riding style and your bike. Plus, even the lowest compression settings on the CaneCreek shocks are too harsh for the riot suspension curve.

    This, I'm all the way out on my HSC on the Cane Creek. The rear end is still awesome compared to any other bike I've owned but it just feels like there could be more. Coil is looking like the best option but as mentioned in the other thread I've got a CTD Fox that'll fit which can be Avy'ed.

    But, I've got a wedding to finance first so the boss has adjusted my priorities

    [QUOTE=TwoTone;12275592]Finally finished.



    [QUOTE]

    TwoTone,
    Could you please post what shock hardware sizes you used for your CTD? Canfield lists the hardware size as 22mm x M8 and 36mm x M8. I could not find the exact lengths from Fox or RWS.

    I have had good luck with Avy'd CTD shocks. It just happens that I already have a CTD in the correct size from my Warden.

    Thanks.

    It's the 35.66mm kit, you can use shims. The same for the front, 21.85mm with shims.

    Thanks. I did not see the shim section on the RWS site. It seems to me that the 0.5mm shims available from RWS will add too much to the stack up. If I add the shims to the 21.85, it equals 22.85. The 22.2 kit would make more sense? It looks like there would be no choice on the wider 35.66 kit but to go to 36.66 with the shims...

    This is the first time I have run into this issue. All of the frames I have owned all used standard size hardware. Is half a mm really a big deal in terms of fit and linkage movement?

    EDIT: Is it possible that Canfield simply rounded up when listing the shock hardware?

    I found 35.99mm Fox hardware at Universal cycles. Same hardware Pivot uses on some of their frames.

    Thanks for the info on the hardware sizes. The announcement of 1" shorter seat tubes put the Riot back on the buy list.

    Wish they would "swap" me a new frame for my first run frame. I like the idea of the shorter seat tube and the aligned shock mounts.......... hint hint, nudge nudge.

    Yep she's a medium. The beauty of raw is that it remains looking clean, even when it's dirty. That's how it looks after weekend of riding. Being summer here's there's no real mud, just lots of dust 😎

    Let me know if they reply, tried that over 2 weeks ago, PMed on here a week ago.

    Based on that alone, I think I'll head up to the local guy.

    What size tires are you running?


    This is on my list of contenders for next bike after years away from riding mountain (got into road racing). Finding a demo ride around me seems to be impossible so I am making this decision strictly based on others feedback and reputation.

    How does this thing climb? Mid Atlantic riding is a lot of climbing, not really flowing downhill, roots, ruts, and mud.

    I am in an area with fairly steep climbs, interspersed with technical climbs over rocky sections, rutted sections, and plenty'o'roots. I am 6'2" and 240#, I can keep up with your average rider, and I do it with a 1X11, 32front 42 rear. The CCDBA has a flip to make the climbing a little easier, but I sometimes forget to turn it on truthfully. This bike climbs pretty well for the slaying you do DH-wise.

    I would not say that I 'slay' going downhill. I used to but what I am looking for is a complete bike. Virginia and West Virginia is muddy, rocks, roots, narrow most of the time, and will involve a good amount of pedaling to get anything done. I am tall and skinny (stack and reach on my road/ TT rig is 610 and 570). I stopped riding mountain around 2006 and pretty much everything has changed since then. The trails I plan on getting back into, with the exception of some IMBA "improved" ones can get technical really quick. Maneuverability and the ability to respond to pedal inputs is a premium. The couple, and granted there are not very many, reviews of the Riot say that it is fun, hence the name, and rides well but all the testing has been done in environments that could not be more different than where I live and ride. A shortish travel 29er is what I am in the market for as it, theoretically, would help level out some to the stuff that stopped me dead on a 26" bike. Not to mention, being tall, I always felt like I was riding on top of 26" wheeled bikes rather than being a part of them (if that makes any sense).

    I'm in North GA and ride Appalachian trails consisting of punchy climbs, quick descents, tight switchbacks, narrow tree gates, roots, rocks and rocks and roots. Did I mention rocks and roots?

    The Riot is the best bike I've found for this due to the ultra short rear and phenomenal Formula suspension.

    Each time I ride it I just think what a great "mountain bike".

    Not Xc or DH or Trail or Enduro-specific, but a true all'rounder.

    I'm in the sprawling NoVa. I would love to take a look at it.

    Waiting on my 34, once it's together and the weather works out, you're more than welcome to meet me at Schaffer for a try.

    Awesome. That is assuming that I just havent decided to go ahead and order a frame on my own. I am interested though as there are a couple of options that I am considering.

    Appreciate the offer. It might be a little bit though before I can get my mind back into bike shopping. A surprise lay off just caught my family. Dealing with that dumped everything to the side.

    That's a lot of bike for Schaeffer! I am in Rockville, but don't have a Riot. I do have an Evil and EX 9.9.

    It's close, but not the only place I ride. Shaffer could be done on a HT, but I'm almost 50 and that's just not comfortable for me anymore.

    I'm not going to have 3 or 4 bikes. So it's the hardtail for gravel rides with the family and a bike for everything else, so that bike needs to cover a lot of different rides, from Schaffer to SnowShoe.

    Here's where I'm at so far with new frame. Waiting on my Fox 34. I've been conteplating doing something a little different with it.

    Originally I was going to give it the 'Rawthic' treatment like on my Lenz, but the raw just looks too good in person. A local guy can make me some masks for the Canfield lettering, so I could basically have the raw frame with polished lettering.

    That looks so good. I love the green and raw ALU, my Riot was supposed to look like that. I had green pedals and a green diamond for it and everything. Ended up with a black/green and it wasn't nearly as sweet as yours. Damn fine choice man!

    Very nice man, really diggin that look! Why the 34 and not the DVO, lol, the green would be intense. I'm trying to decide on a fork for my riot right now, as I moved my pike over to my hard tail. Now I feel like I need something a little beefier for the riot just out of principle. I've been looking at the DVO, stage, lyrik and 34/36. What's your opinion on the float out back, is it avy'd, and have you had the inline to compare? I was really considering what kind of weight drop I'd get with a float and 34 versus a dbinline with 36.

    DVO would have been $800. I already have a 36 now, so for less I got an Avy cartridge for it. The 36 was originally for my Lenz since it was a Talas. At this point, even if I don't like the Riot and replace it, I know I won't be on anything that needs more than 140mm upfront. So, I'll move the Avy over to the 34 and just sell the 36 with the Lenz.

    I had a 2012 34 and couldn't feel any flex- I'm 200-210, this new one is stiffer and lighter, so why not. I'm not a weight weenie by any stretch, but why not save a little weight if the parts are up to the task. I mentioned before Craig thought the shock would be adequate for the frame and with his tune I'm confident it will.

    AOK on here has the same shock, he can comment better as far as a comparison, but so far he's said he likes it.

    Yeah, I was kind of kidding about the fork, is not a fashion show. Your bike looks wicked though, it's easy to imagine, lol. That's good to hear about the 34. I'm torn between the 2 right now. I think the 34 would be plenty, but the hsc/lsc adjust and 20mm axle are really tempting me. The weight is a factor though.

    From memory you'll save about 100 grams from the Inline to the CTD. Bigger gains if your running a DB Air

    With an Avy cart, that becomes an non factor. Let be bluntly honest, unless you're doing stuff that would normally need a dual crown fork, do you really think outside of a lab, we'd be able to tell the difference in stiffness of 20mm vs. 15mm axle on the same fork?

    This is a beautiful frame and looks very solid as well. I'm nearly done but we just got whacked with snow so a rip on this will have to wait. I still have the Thomson dropper, rear brake, and drivetrain to install...VERY impressed with the frame!

    Some pics from hot and dusty Australia













    Have ordered some Chromag gear in the form of a 15mm rise BZA carbon Bar and 50mm BZA stem to change up the cockpit a bit. Have been wanting to go a little lower with the bars for a while but the stems already slammed.

    Only one ride on it so far with a mix of hardpack, sand and loose over hard and it felt great. Had a 2.5 DHF on the front before that in the same conditions and it felt too sluggish. The DHR II is miles better in that regard. Also finding the Minion SS to have better traction on steep loose stuff that the Rock Razor I had on previous.

    I've never been a fan of raw frames until this bike, but I think it's just the design in general that's so appealing. It is truly the sexiest aluminum frame I've ever seen. It's probably good for me that the carbon will be awhile. I'm going to have to start saving nickels again, and I still haven't convinced my wife that I needed the last one!

    It's solid so far. The Thomson is a little nicer in terms of machining, but the RF is solid without any wobble and was cheaper. I also like the all black finish and 150mm of drop.

    I will say that I originally had the Easton Haven version and it was defective out of the box. It wouldn't reliably stay down and the return was so fast that it could double as a medieval torture device. I think the mechanical brake was messed up.

    damn... next time I'll buy a Canfield (and I can't see me buying other frames) I'll do it directly from the Bros, even if I'm in Europe.

    You guys got a way better treatment than what I'm getting...
