I really want to get a full squish bike, and I don't know of any other frame/fork in the ballpark of the canzo. I have Medium (17.5") GF cobia now with Juicy/Crossmax/etc upgrades to swap to a new frame for. Standover seems to be a bit taller on the canzo and I have the short torso problemo so that sucks but..

Anyway, I'd love to pedal a canzo around, just even on the street would rock :thumbsup:

A friend of mine went to a Canzo once he broke his Cobia, and he loves it. For the price it is hard to beat. The shock isn't great, but it isn't terrible either. He needed a new seatpost and front derailier, but everything else was switched over. He went from the 19 to the 20, so I think the 17.5 to 18 would be no big deal.

The shock on the 2011 Canzo is actually the Monarch RT3, which is considered by many to be better than the RP23. It is a pretty good fit on the Voodoo. More efficient than plush, but not easy to bottom out, at least on XC type trails.

Cobia has a 80mm Tora - did your friend mess with the spacers or whatever to go to the 100 that the Canzo specs?

Searching for info on swapping 80 - 100...
