    Strengths:    1.5 headtube, 150 mm rear hub spacing, 83 mm Bottom bracket. The frame is well built with attention to detail. VPP suspension. Spot on geometry.

    Weaknesses:    Chainline rub on rear triangle gusset, routing for rear D. is a bit weird. was not able to run a zero stack headset in headtube with fox 40, had to run a reguar cup.

    Bottom Line:   
    The Canfield Lucky is a true beauty of a bike, First few times on it I felt slower than when on my Kona coiler as it eats up everything on the trail. In turn making me more comfortable at higher speeds. Very little pedal bob and brake jack due to suspension being basically VPP. The geometry is spot on, and makes it a great DH/FR bike. Adjustable from 7" to 8" lets you adjust the geo to your liking. If your looking for a hardcore DH/FR rig this is a great performing bike.

    Being one of the lucky ones. (Santa Cruz Grease Gun works)

    Where or what can I use to grease my bike after the original tube runs out? I have the new style with the straight plunger and toothpaste style (?) tube. I would rather not have to buy a new grease gun just because. My google search just comes up with threads about the grease gun not working.Read More »
