Good news this week for fans of boutique bike maker Canfield Brothers - especially if you're not the type who prefers to buy a bare frame and then build it up yourself.
Starting this month, the Brothers will be offering all its frames (Jedi, Balance, Riot and EPO) as complete bikes via its on-line store in a consumer-direct sales model.
The Balance and Riot, Canfield Brothers' 27.5 and 29-inch all-mountain bikes with patented CBF suspension, will ship with a Shimano XT groupset, Race Face cockpit and dropper, Maxxis tires, Cane Creek DB Air CS rear shock and RockShox Lyrik (Balance) or Pike (Riot). Price is $4499.

Wheels, cranksets and pedals for all factory builds will be Canfield Brothers own C2 Components. All Canfield Brothers bikes are also still available as frame and shock only or with a variety of frame, fork and component packages.
"We're excited to make the performance of our frames accessible to more riders," said Vin Quenneville, director of sales. "While many riders enjoy the complete customization of a frame-up project, there are a lot of people looking for a solid build out of the box. Our goal was to put together bikes that we would ride, bikes without any 'take-off' parts, at a realistic price."
