    Here is mine.

    Got the complete bike used, frame has some wear but all the parts were brand spankin new. Been beating on it regularly and am pretty happy with it.



    Posted a few riding pic as well. Bike pics are cool and all, but bikes like this are made to be ridden.

    Yo Lance - what's wrong with that pic? You look like you're riding UP a hill!! WTF??!!??

    Just kidding dude - I've been riding up hills too - because you can on a Can Diggle! This is the best damn bike I've ever had, period. How can one frame do everything so well?

    She's not new anymore but my '06 F1 is still doing a killer job of being the best DH bike I've ever owned. Some season recaps!

    It's fun looking through these old photos! Heres one dropping Mushroom rock back in 2000. A fun hit that is up on the Moab Rim, back when the lift was there. I found a podium shot that has Chris Vandine, Nate Toon (first guy to hit Mushroom Rock) myself and Matt Thompson. That was back when a 12" bike gave you a big advantage, especially on Moab Rim.

    Hey!! . . My buddy took that one-hander shot with his point and shoot probably 5 years ago! I finally sacked up and hit that thing last year. I'm not sure why I waited so long. That drop is butter!!

    Can Diggle

    just built up, 40 lbs, with a change of tyres and tubes she would be around 36

    She has only had the car park test so far, this has been built up as a demo bike.

    The second post is Michelle's One. That's the first white Diggle I've see posted. Seems light for the heavy parts on it. My bike is the ano Diggle with purple links. The ano is tough but that white is just hot.

    BWs demo Diggle looks even hotter in the flesh I was blown away by it, if it rides half as good as it looks it will make a sweet ride, looks like you could build it up with allot of options too

    He said white so that's what I was posting on not the model but I got you.

    "The ano is tough but that white is just hot."

    Awesome because I need to send back the ano One I got today (wrong size) and looks like I will be rolling a white one myself. I guess you only have smalls in white at the shop so white it is.

    Not exactly sure. I haven't weight it since changing a few parts but it's somewhere in the 37ish pound range.

    Totem coil ?
    Does that slack of a HA ever make it tough to climb with ? Chris and Lance have encouraged me to get a TA fork....too bad the 170-180 offerings suck when it comes to TA.

    Yep- Totem coil. I've gotten used to climbing with a high front end so no problems unless it's super steep... Definitely get a TA fork (an 07 or before 66 RC2 would be a good bet if you can find one)...

    How is the mid range? The fox DHX air 5.0 had an issue with this so wanted to know how yours was.

    Myself, I went with a coil so I will update after this weekend. Should have my bike done tomorrow night and getting my first ride on Sat.

    BTW, awesome Canfield One!

    hah! I think I saw one of these pictures of you when I was getting into mountain biking, its been a benchmark for "what I want to progress to" since then, I'm heading out there this spring to get er done, you should come out with us.

    I guess I should post my lucky



    Now running high rollers, sunline v1's 29inch bars, and some other stuff. I think its 41 lbs with my DH build, should be hitting 36-37 with my "climbing do everything wheelset + airshock"

    Can-Diggle

    Freshly built, and still waiting on a few 'minor' things like rotor adapters, axle kits, and a seatpost, but I couldn't resist getting it dirty.

    I built this for my son, who may have to pry it away from me!

    With thanks to Chris, aenema, flipnidaho, and supramk388, all of whom picked up assists:

    Yep -- weighs in at 35.3 on my scale. It should lose a bit of weight when the I9 rear axle conversion is done (currently running a HP2/823 that flipnidaho loaned me).

    Let me know when you head down. I go a few times every year. I'd be a blast.

    Hodgee - Diggles looking good, bars look a bit high but thats just me. Nice and light too!

    There are days when I wonder if I should be getting a Diggle instead of a One. I am 150 pounds though, so all I get with that is one degree slacker head angle and a heavier frame. Seems like everyone is getting theirs pretty light no matter what. i9's for mine too when I finally decide. This bike will be my aggressive all mountain bike and will on occasion go to the parks. I am planning on getting a dh bike and perhaps a dedicated FR bike though also. Decisions, decisions.

    Well we just received the first Jedi at the shop in time for the Bike show here in Athens, Greece. It is almost completely built up so should be finished by tomorrow. I will post a pic or two soon as I can. The Show center has 2 sets of escalators which I think just HAVE to be used during the show. You know... just to show what the bike can do ehheheeh. Saturday night is the post-show party, that should be a good time no?
    Anyways, she is being built in full red detail. Red links, red Hope Pro2 hubs with red floater discs, red Hope Ceramic BB, red Hope spacers, seat collar, a black Hope DH 50mm stem, red Crank Bros mallets, Saint carnks, shifter and derailleur, Easton Monkeylight DH bars and Hope MonoM4 brakes. Oh...and a red Whyte Bros fork up front.

    Wow thats pretty hawt!

    I hope ya gonna drop the top crown down some though the jedi is pretty high hand relation wise up front and its not so good for the fork stanchions to be clamped so high to the ends, slap my hands if I'm being piccy just would have it as low down as poss with the drop crown, is that a straitline integrated stem, looks sweet and short nice what size frame is that? congrats!

    It's just set that way till I get the Hopey damper in. Plus the Straitline stem leaves no room for the steer tube to come all the way through hence all the spacer under the top crown. I will soon have the Hopey and will make the adjustments.

    You wont need the damper on that bike, just lower or raise the forks geo for stability. I had a damper on the F1 and this when I first got the frame last year! NO need for a damper on it, I sold mine.

    On a side note: They are not worthless or a waste, If your hitting big LONG hard rocky nasty runs ie Tunnel, coldsprings, Knapps castle etc.. In SB it helped after the 3rd run down when your arms are rubber!
    or trying for your 10+ run at Tamarack, 12th at Snow Summit 2 days in a row total runs 23(Big Bear)

    I know it's more equipment than I need. But out here in AZ it's really rocky and usually lots of long rock garden. Then again since I gotten this bike I have been able to do more runs down the MT. since I am not as tired. The bike just floats over things a little better then my old bike. Yesterday we did 4 runs and I usually am barely handling anything by the third. And when we were done I still had another 4 runs in me. Guess I mgiht not put on the Hopey. I may just sell to someone else or put it on my 575. But who knows once I get it.

    Thanks for the info It gave me a little more appreciation for the bike. Since it can handle so much with out the hopey.

    My next purchase will be a Canny!

    I'm really digin' supramk388's new 'One' frame. Unfortunately his is a small so I can't really give it any saddle time, but I love the geo, its versatility, and the overall rugged look of the frame. Looks to really soak up the hits well too. I'm not too sure if climbs quite as good as my RFX, but time will tell if I can get Ricky whipped into shape Fortunately he makes up for it with some pretty daring maneuvers .

    Anyway, here is a shot of 388's new rig in action. This is a tough roller we like to call 'toilet bowl' cause if your not smooth and keep it clean, things tend to get real sh!tty. Here, there's a lot more than meets the eye



    I wished I had gotten some closeups of the bike, but here are a few more with a better angle on the frame. This roller adequately named 'el tortuga'.

    Seeing lots of Roco Air rear shocks here. Makes me wonder if I should consider that for my future build. I am light too, sitting at 160 or 165 when fully geared up. The rocos arent much lighter than a coil shock....so i wonder what I would be losing to a 09 DHX coil (Chris tells me that the One does better with an active rear shock versus one with lots of compression damping like a CCDB. Though the one I rode had a CCDB and it seemed mighty alright. Chris insisted I would like it even more with a Fox )

    Here's another Jedi - first and only one in Croatia. It's built for my gf, she's 5'2'' and it fits like a glove. Thanks a lot to Chris for all his input and help.

    Lance has spoken highly of the WC Roco Air rear shock and I see lots of people choosing to use them on both the One and Jedi.

    Havent decided on either
    white front, silver links, black rear (or white)
    Sunrise/sunset orange front and rear triangles, white links (like the specialized sx orange yellowish orange)
    red front, white links, black rear

    Or Sunday green front/rear triangles and silver links.

    Bullcrew,

    Few questions:
    * What is the frame weight without shock? If you have a chance put is on the a scale and let me know.
    * How does Jedi frame compare to other frames you have owned in the past? What are pros and cons of this particular design? How does it ride?

    I am building up bike with another Canfield frame: Can-Can. Once it is ready I will post some pics here

    I am building up bike with another Canfield frame: Can-Can. Once it is ready I will post some pics here
    8.25lbs without shock (I weighed it and posted pics somewhere cant remember)
    Its faster than other frames Ive owned hands down! It corners fast but likes to go really fast in them, competely stable at speed in so much it gets easier to ride the faster it goes. It climbs really well, better than any DH bike Ive ridden to date with very little wallow in suspension. I have smashed rock gardens like I did on the F1 and this bike is faster as well as can be manipulated while in the rocks ie changine lines faster.

    I DJ it now for fill in fun and it does that really well aside of the soaking up the tranny which is easy to compensate for, wont get you up like a 4" or a Hard tail but it is just about as flickable.

    Rocks: goes through square edge hits FAST and STABLE while picking up or maintaing speed due to rearward arch.

    Corners: like its on rails the faster the better, it is easy to lay over and pin it. If you go slow you will continue to exit slow, if you go fast it completely comes into its own. Shorttened chainstay helps here!

    DJ/jumping: Easily flickable literally, pumps nice and can be pumped for some height. Low stand over makes moving easy and dont sweat the coming up short, it will blow through the hit saving your rear!

    Single track: THis mixxed with gnarly rocks and loose off camber is where it gets fun, trust the bike and get it up to speed the faster it goes the more control it gets. Dont get me wrong its easy to ride slow and pop off parking lot tricks and slow trail riding is perfect but it is a new area when up to speed and the mix of chainstay length crossed with rearward!

    It rides like a really great trail bike AM/FR but has a love for the fast nasty stuff! The bike was built with speed inmind!
    Chris and Lance pinned it with this 1.

    And here it is, as promised. Built up for the show in Athens, Greece in full Hope kit with Saint crankset and derailleur, Easton Bars, Crank Bros pedals and a few other bits and bobs. Needless to say that with said coloring scheme there was only one name we could give it....Darth Maul. Heck...it even has dual light sabers heheheh. She tips the scales at 17kg. We chose a lighter spring (400 weight) to suit lighter riders in order to emphasize how well it pedals.
    It was the centerpiece of our stand and got the most attention much to the displeasure of other bike shop/brand dealers heheheheheheheheheh. People got to ride her around the show area and in a small test circuit, although it was more dirt-jump / bmx oriented. Jaws dropped, saliva was randomly sloshed around...along with other unmentionable bodily fluids...you know the score. So, BIG thumbs up to The Brothers!!! Oh and Chris, if things go well then Maria (Greece) might just be riding one next season.

    I do graphics signs decals etc so I do them myself. I have the files
    Of doesn't add much at all, I opted to film dip instead. It's as clean as new now and should be going in for film dip next week. Either snow leopard pattern or a color with water drops over it.

    Unfortunately no red hubs cause they were too expensive(!!!) so I went for a DMR Revolver.
    The stem is a Hope 70mm 25 deg. I am satisfied with it because I am 195cm tall so 25 deg. helps me to have a better riding position on the bike.
    And finally my friend ROCO is all the money!!!!

    Hi bullcrew,
    Thanks for your comments, very helpful.
    You said it was a faster bike/frame that other you have owned before. What bikes were these? Have you had a chance to compare yout Jedi to other modern DH bike? If so, maybe you have further comments.
    I like the feedback this bike gets and that it comes from guys who ride themselves so they understand what is needed. One of my concern, though, is that there is not much room at the back and I kind of like running high volume tyres. Otherwise the whole frame looks great
    Also, do you know whether this frame design was built around any specific size of a front chainring? I am asking because I am considering hammerschmidt thing and there was a rumour that certain frame designs will have some additional bobbing since they were designed around 38/40T chainrings. Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    hammerschmidt would be fine

    But not ideal. It wont affect your suspension performance as the pulley wheel dictates the chain tension in relation to the suspension's pivot area. But, because there is a pulley wheel, you have less teeth making contact with the chain. The smaller the chainring, the even more less teeth are contacting. The hammerschmidt all mountain is what, 24 actual teeth. Not really giving you a lot of contact and fear skipping or ripping of teeth.
    Ideally, 36 or 38 will give you the best range of drivetrain and contact points but you will not affect suspension movement because of pulley.

    I own a Jedi. Have ridden a few other modern DH bikes. I liked the Horst link ones quite a bit for suspension isolation and movement. VP Free and V10 feel pretty good but both offer different rides to the standard out there. Free is tall and long, v10 is super sag so glued. Not lively but fast and pedals well. Buddy has a Socom and it is lively and light, liked it. Small amount of time on a 303, felt good when the going got rough but seemed like a plow bike, not a playful thing and I didn't care for the high standover and maintenance nightmare it would be.
    Jedi is unique to all of these. Pedals well but not the best, is quite a playful bike that is easy to build sub 40 lbs. It rides very nimble and has a low'ish bb height and short stays so corners quite well. It carries speed through rough stuff better than anything else I have ridden. I would say it could be a plow bike but for how nimble it can be also. There is no way to really describe the confidence the bike instills in you. It really takes a lot of drama out of going fast in rugged terrain. Everybody who has ridden mine has commented on how quickly they are comfortable on it and pushing things. I think that is the biggest selling point of any bike. So relaxed and comfortable going fast.

    I have to totally agree with everything said above!!!!! Especially the confiedence inspring part. I have never ridden down a MTN so fast before and I treat my bike like a plow bike but love how I can change lines on dime if I wanted to!

    The only thing that really stuck out to me when I bought my frame was the rear on how limited on tire size you could run on there. I too like to runa high volume tire.

    But I have been riding my Jedi for about a month now and see that I don't need the higher volume tire in the rear!!! It's pretty much perfect right where it is with a 2.5 minion, I might try some highrollers and see how that fit and feel . But as for now this is totally my dream bike that I have in my hands!!! I could not ask for a better bike!!!!!!!!

    Shorten that steer tube already!!! Or are you still thinking a steering dampener? Got an extra 2 inches of bar height and running low rise bars. Seems a bit counter-productive there buddy

    By the way, I just took my Balance in to get new powdercoat job. Very much excited to get that back in a week, will post pics.

    Just curious. Shouldn't he be using a short crown with his Boxxer? Headtube is 127mm, so with a standard headset like Chris King, you are under the stack height of 150mm, so short crown is required for Boxxer?

    I already cut the steer tube!!! it's an old picture in regards to what I was planning on doing! I realize I really don't need the dampner so I put in on my Yeti for fun since I bought it already!

    It rides a whole lot better since I cut the steer down and using the super short stem with the low rise handlebar!!! Handles alot better!!!

    Good to hear you got her dialed. I just wish I had more DH resorts or shuttle friendly trails around here. Don't get to ride my Jedi nearly enough for happiness. It truly is the most fun I have ever had on a bike each and every time I ride it on appropriate trails. But the Balance is a pretty freakin sweet ride too and it climbs. Not the best but gets'er done if you are properly motivated.

    And to answer above. I also run the tall crown on my boxxer. The short is cutting it pretty tight and I thought I would someday want to be able to adjust head angle/front end height for certain terrain. Spent a couple of days up in Golden, B.C. this summer and Mt. Seven really is as stupid scary steep as everybody claims. I can't really think of a down side except a teensy bit of weight and not as clean looking but bleh.

    Guys, thank you very much for your input
    Has anyone riding Jedi had a chance to compare it to Intense M6?

    sweet man, you order it yet or still in preliminary phase? I look at my Jedi every time I am pull in my garage, wishing the snow away so I can ride it. Funner bikes I have yet to ride.

    not exactly new but....

    It feels like it. I managed to wear through my clear coat and a lot of paint after 2 and a half years of riding on my Balance. I also was unfortunate enough to get my ankle broken in soccer so thought the timing was perfect for a repaint. Local company stripped old, repainted for me for 106$ USD total and I am very pleased with the outcome.

    Still looking for a good deal, cannot spend full RRP for the frame at the moment.
    Do you remember by any chance what is the shock size on Jedi frame?

    Shock is an 8.75x2.75. They are not the cheapest frames but keep your eye out and check all the classifieds out there. They are well worth the time and money for sure.

    Is that for frame/shock or complete build???

    Either way you are not going to get it cheaper than that so I would jump on it before someone else does!

    There are several sub 29 lb Ones out there and they are absolutely climbable. Flipnidaho has a 32 pound one with a coil totem up front and some good sized rubber mounted up. The bike is so all around capable, it is not just marketing. Look for threads by flipnidaho and read what he has to say, they guy came from a total weight weenie xc background and thought he was getting more of a gravity/fr bike to complement is stable of ss, yeti 575, and others. Basically, this bike gets ridden instead of the 575 now. A very capable pedaler and all maintain bike.

    Intense makes some beautiful, functional bikes too. But they will not offer you near the service that the Canfield bros will. You would be happy with either bike though, those new Uzzi's look nice and I would like to ride one. But I have had such great experiences with the brothers that I will always lean their way when two or more bikes compare similarly.

    aenema,

    Love the new color. A repaint for mine is on the bike-to-do list as the clear coat on my white Balance is showing wear. I have yet to decide what color it should become, but I'm thinking something other than white.

    These are the most recent pictures of the bike, but quite a few things have been updated since this was taken. The Balance has since received a e.13 32 Special guide, a 28T eNVy Steal Granny chainring, Shimano XTR M952 165mm cranks, a Middleburn M952 compatible 4x104 spider, and Schwalbe Big Betty 2.4s (great tire, IMO) turned tubeless. New handlebars should be waiting on my doorstep when I get home.



    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Thanks man, I am very pleased with it. If you get it powdercoated (what I recommend) do not clearcoat it. You should do a nice periwinkle blue with white links. Or a leopard print if you can find a pro. Just don't lay it down in the bushes or you will never find it again.
    Mine is good for another 3 years again. I love this bike.

    I was just on the phone with Chris Canfield when you replied with this. Ironic.

    Chris tells me that I need to talk to you about your PUSH upgrade to the DHX 5.0. I'm not too happy with the bottom out on the stock 5.0. It's just the wrong shock for this bike. PM coming your way.

    I don't know what color the powercoat will be. Leopard print with the purple hubs might be too pimp for my blood... literally.

    Looks Saucie!

    vaughnm,
    Your Sauce looks amazing I'm definitely looking for a ride report from you. I think you have the first Sauce that I have seen on these boards. How much does that bad boy weigh? What kind of riding are you going to do with it?


    Simonm,
    Weight is the beauty of the new Canfield line of frames. Check out my thread "One Beautiful Bike". I got my One down to 29lbs. I was blown away when I put it on the scale. 29lbs for a 7/8" travel bike that still climbs good, is stable and still stiff as hell.

    Chris

    Don't mind all the spacers under the top crown I got the Hopey damper to still install and will be getting a ti spring also on it's way.
    First two Pictures is of the infamous Jedi
    3-5 Canfield Brothers new fork, Wheel, Seat. Limited edition!!
    Question: How did you calculate a spring for your shock? Did you follow that 2.8:1 ratio as in the manual or did you use something like tftuned.com spring calculator?

    Also, where to get these little Canfield Brothers stickers?

    I found the standard 2.8 leverage calculater a bit heavy. I weigh 180lbs without gear and settled on a 400 lb spring. calculator specified 450 but was unhappy with that. What stickers you referring to? I got a sheet of frame stickers with my Jedi. Didn't use them until I repainted my Balance but if you want some, give Chris a call and see what he says.

    Nickle, I have a White Balance as well - how do you like the single front chainring?? Also, what size ring and Cranks are you running?

    I run a 28T eNVy Steel Granny in the 64 BCD position of the spider. As far as I know, eNVy is the only folks who make such an item and no one in the US sells them. I ordered mine through Canada and will again when this one needs replacing. However, it has held up very well to my 210 lbs mashing the pedals. The cranks are 165mm XTR M952s. If I find another pair of 165's I'm buying them immediately. Good cranks, these are.

    As far as how this setup has worked, it has functioned very well. Not having a front derailleur and the clearance issues and weight penalty that went with it is great. It bought me more BB clearance, which is a valuable asset for the trails I ride. My only complaints are the lack of extreme high and low gears (obviously). You really have to anticipate what the trail is about to serve you and make sure you are in the right gear for it. There is pedal feedback as aenema suggested in this thread, but nothing that steals my focus or messes up my riding. I will probably continue to run this setup or one similiar for a long time to come. It just work for what I use this bike for.

    Here's the only pic I have of the new, complete setup. Sounds like I need to get some new pics up. Photo credit goes to Icegeek - Dave Morse.

    The king doesn't have a compression wedge. There was just a thread about this in the DH forum, it works for some people, it doesn't work for many. I honestly don't see the point of getting something flawed by design that MIGHT work when there are plenty of nicer and less expensive options out there. If you want something pretty and shiny that weighs less, maybe consider a cane creek 110?

    Also, looks like you're not real concerned about expense, looks like a great build, I'd consider a 180mm rotor in the rear unless you're riding in the alps all day. The Ones are pretty strong, you really almost certainly wont need a 200mm rotor for the back, there is some more weight savings.

    Any particular reason you're going with the welgo mg1's? is it because they're inexpensive and light? they grip decently and they're cheap, you just have to deal with going through them real fast. If you've got the money for it, I'd consider some syncros mental mags, they're like 20 grams more but they grip WAYYYY better, there are lots of pin configurations so you can figure out exactly what works, and they don't bend/break/tear pins so easily. And if you REALLY have alot of money to throw at this sucker, snag some of the new 26 pedals.

    But yah, aside from the king headset, that build looks totally dope. Enjoy it man! Can't wait to see it built up!

    PS: Erikmolander, I think the color schemes on that jedi of yours make for the sickest jedi I've ever seen. Are there things in the build I'd do differently? Sure, but its a damn fine build and it looks ridiculous! Savage

    erikmolander, I think there's a rule that if you own a Jedi, it must be an impressive build and it must be beautiful to look at. I think yours obeys that rule just fine.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    That is the reason why I am pretty much on this build. I do agree about Chris King but I will give it a go and see how it performs. As for Wellgo pedals - because they are cheap and light.
    I would love to have Syncros pedals but they are sky high expensive here in the UK, so unless I find a deal, wellgo pedals stay.

    Pics to come in two weeks time.

    wider/lower rise bars, (v1's), lighter/shorter stem, a hope/823 front wheel and a hadley/823 rear wheel (or CK or I9 if I had the money), some syncros mental mags (or something more grippy then those), and stiffer cranks - I think deity would look tits on that setup. I like how light my glites are, but they're sitting backup because they're too flexy, and I'm only 170 with gear, its just one of those things that bothers me. I dont' ride any faster or any more in control with stiffer cranks, I don't accelerate harder, it just "feels" better.

    But really minor things to be honest, I'd rock that bike and love every bit of it. Its savage.

    Tankak, ah, gotcha, I was thinking "man, thats a pretty expensive build to just drop on, I assume he must have money." It sounds absolutely rad, I can't wait to see it

    Sick bikes guys,

    i just spent the last hour reading all of the posts and oogling the jedi's. I had a chance to ride one down in virgin utah (old redbull rampage site) and the thing felt amazing!!!

    just curious what size are you guys riding and how tall are you? Im 6 feet even and am torn on which size i would get.

    if i can find a used one I would be very tempted to sell/trade my large socom to get it. so if any of you decide to sell PM me.

    Hahaha, good luck man! I was thinking about selling my lucky to get a smaller "do everything" bike and then realized how much fun it is - barring catastrophy, I'm not gonna be selling this sucker, too much fun. Seems to be alot of canfield owners out there who feel that way about their bikes But always nice to see another dude on a canfield, so hope you find something!

    I am 170cm (5ī7" i think) and ride a small. It is really small and it would be interesting to try a medium some day. If i where in your clothes and i would buy a medium.

    I am so jealous! I wish I could have gotten a medium Can Can (sold out) So I had to settle for an Intense Slopestyle.
    Unfortunately the CanDiggle is now for sale. ($1400.00)

    Well,
    I started building up my Jedi.
    As you can easily see the bike is not finished yet. There are still few bits missing but I just had not time lately to get it done.

    I will keep you posted as the build progresses.

    Nice build! Wheres the schwalbes!
    The middys look sick your going to love them, If Id found them for that price Id have bought them out of greed!

    Big Bettys are going on mine once I hit Socal, then itll be a swap from MM front to BB front pending terrain and a BB rear most of the time. It will make for a fast grippy combo!

    BigBrother almost finished

    My Jedi F1 almost finished.
    Still few bits and pieces to change but this is more or less the setup I will be running (fox 40 for some DH races)

    The only real change here would be getting the Totem lowers painted black (or maybe red to match the links).

    Well, the weight was always an issue but I guess it was a secondary one. I had transferred most of the parts from my other DH bike so there was no room to play with very light yet heavy duty parts. In addition, given the sky high prices these days I would not be able to afford any major changes. Maybe in the future, who knows.

    I have only had one day of riding on this one but it feels good. The air shock makes the ride very smooth yet on bigger stuff it feels that there is so much travel left. I have not done any freeride but I am not really into it, however, I noticed that pedals quite well when sitted.

    More riding feedback to come soon but so far so good.
    The whole bike feels very light, probably around 37lb. The spec is different in places to the one posted before but once I am settled with my choice of parts I will try find out exactly how heavy it is. The pics with the weight to follow some time soon.

    This is my setup for the season (almost)
    New fork, stem and bar, pedals.
    Missing: RS vivid, titanium spring.. Need to get the right busings

    My bathroom scale says 38lbs. Sounds a little optimistic to me. Need to find a better scale..

    Tatankainlondon, looks like there are now two Canfields with Middleburns. I toasted the M952s from above and replaced the entire drivetrain. I have to find (or have one made) trials bash for the middle ring position to cover the new 28T 1x9 setup. I'm also running tubeless front and rear now on new wheels, so we'll have to see how they hold up.

    This is such a nice looking bike. I really like this frame/

    There is at least one more Canfield with Middleburn cranks that was actually an inspiration - guy called "Bullcrew" - his magnificent Jedi here: https://forums.mtbr.com/downhill-freeride/finally-jedi-35lbs-486752.html

    I really like the Middleburns, they really feel solid and I am a very heavy guy so when something feels solid then it is really reasurring. I have my first race on them but I am 100% novice who is super slow so they did not get much battering. I have to them them apart, though, as they have some sort of "ticking" sound, maybe this is just a matter of re-greasing contact points.

    To be perfectly honest I need to get onto one of those Dirt-schools (where you have a pro teaching morons like me how to ride a bike) so I can overcome my fear of drops (yeah, I know, it sounds silly). I must add that I need to hit gym big time to prepare myself for a week in the Alps later this year.

    Any questions re Middleburn, go ahead and let me know.
