    I'm wondering what they have cooking over at mammoth this year. I haven't seen any new info on any new trails or improvements yet, but I'm stoked. Any rumors are welcome!

    I'm extremely impatiently waiting. Especially if I can sell my mojo hd and buy a full DH rig

    Sell it so you can buy my Jedi w/ Avy'd Boxxer

    I'm not a fan of vpp. After owning a dw bike it's hard to ride anything else. But for strictly descending fsr is a really good platform.

    Trust me, you get so much more when you buy a dh bike from a company who's "specialty" is dh bikes....

    Plus 1 on that comment... would rather ride a bike designed-built-ridden by individuals who are in that spectrum of the business and not some intern or engineer who ride XC but was told to design a DH bike.

    Why do you think the Jedi is better than the demo?

    So the rearward axle path makes the difference?

    I just realized I've hijacked this thread. Sorry. But I'm very curious about this because it's hard to demo all these great bikes

    Yea.. Been on a Canfield "the ONE" since '11 when I picked it up for my trip to Moab. Between the way the bike rode and saved my bacon on numerous times and the second to none CS from Canfield has sold me for life. I own 3 for myself and have put my wife on a Nimble 9 and my oldest daughter on a Yelli Screamy.

    Your right about the ride difference- hard to explain... just gotta ride it and see.

    I've been doing some research on the Jedi and I think you guys may be right. The Jedi is a sweet, capable, unique bike. Hard to find on the used market though
