    Who's riding a Canfield?

    Well I am and I would not have it any other way For now I have a Canfield One as may all around bike and it is amazing. Next I will be getting a Jedi so for now the One will have to handle light FR duty and trust me it does just fine.

    So can I see your latest action shots on your Canfield? I guess your favorite action shot would be cool if you have no current ones (heck your on a Canfield so that's awesome already )

    Well I start off with a few from this weekend. We went to a FR event down south and the RoughRiders (www.roughriderracing.org) showed us an awesome time. The One did not let me down it was rock solid all weekend. Thanks Chris and Lance I hope to see you down here this year just hit me up


    and one vid from last week. Log ride we built up and seshed for a bit.

    More on The One...

    I'm looking hard at a Canny or DW RFX for my next bike purchase. Since it is likely that I will get to throw a leg over a Canfield before the RFX, I may just have to pull the trigger.

    Sweet ride Supra...

    I'm riding a Can Diggle, also, like william42, have no photos... Gotta get busy with that.

    Props for the drops and the photos....

    As an aside; Dude, it's definitely time for you to put on a fullface lid. That XC helmet won't take proper care of your dome if that kind of drop goes even slightly wrong. Road Rash, bruises, and broken bones all heal pretty well, but Traumatic Brain Injuries are not to be f'ed with.

    Keep up the riding, and keep posting!! Your shots are excellent.

    I use a cheap Kodak 7.2 point and shoot. A few of my buddies have some nice ones however so you may be talking about those shoot. Make it this way and we will take some pic of you hitting some of our techy spots.

    Having ridden my Can-Diggle for several weeks now, I can honestly say this is the best damn bike I have ever ridden. This bike pedals phenominally for an 8" bike, as a matter of fact you would think you were on a 5" bike. It weighs 36lbs with pedals and I really dont have a light build on it. I think Lance and Chris have their $hit together. Not to mention they are both super cool to deal with! I still have yet to get it on some super sketchy tech stuff as the snow is lingering in the high country, however everything I have slammed it on has been super plush. Cant wait to buy a Jedi next spring. Thanks Lance and Chris you guys rock!!!

    I have the new frame painted white. Roco world cup air rear(awesome shock) 8.5lbs..
    2007 888 ATA
    Cane Creek XX flush headset
    Truvativ AKA 70mm stem
    Sunline OS 29.5" bar/ with sunline grips
    XT shifters
    2006 Hope M4 brakes with the new 2 piece rotors 203f 183r
    Kind Shock 5" drop seat post( I use this bike as my trail bike and you cant slam the post all the way down with a fixed post if you are over 6') lever actuated
    WTB rocket V seat
    Hope seatpost QR
    2009 Race Face Atlas Cranks FR with 22 36 and the new E-13 bashguard
    SLX front derailure
    XT rear derailure
    Sram PG990 cassette
    Time z platforms
    Sun Singletrack hoops 32 hole 14/15 DT swiss spokes ano nipples Hope hubs Front and rear
    Maxxis Advantage 2.4f and Maxxis high roller 2.35 r both folding with tubes

    I was so surprised when I loaded it up on the scales and it weighed 36lb 1oz My 06 UZZI VPX with very similar parts a triple(truvativ holzfellers) instead of a bash and a fixed thomsen post weighed 39lbs 5oz. This bike definatly performs better up and down than the Uzzi does. It has ZERO pedal feedback in either chainring. You can feel the suspension working but it is from trail in put not rider input. I let my friend ride it up a little ways and then from the top a little ways down. He did not go far and stopped and stepped off and held onto the end of the grip as far away form the bike as he could and said "take this sucker back I cant afford to buy one right now" It is amazing. Definatly the best bike I have ever straddled!!!

    Definitely. Two years and going strong. This has been a great bike.

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

    Tipping the scales at 34.6 lbs. Just added a 10mm thru axle to the Hope Pro 2 rear hub. Lovin' it!!!! Don't think I will ever sell it. Although I am impressed by the Pivot Firebird I recently rode.
