Just finished building up my new Canfield F1. Got the frame just before christmas and have been getting parts since then. Just finished building it up last weekend and it both feels and looks great. But now comes the hard part, waiting for the snow to go with a fully built bike in your room waiting to get out there :madmax:

I'd like to thank the brothers, Chris and Lance, for the talk(s) and flexability, you really deserve the compliment.

Build list will be posted on demand, to tired right now.

And finally the pic:

I'm digging the white links and rims! HOT!!!
True, the rims changed the way the bike looked when I bolted them on, I tested the bike earlyer with my friends wheels that are dark gray (823's) and it did nothing for the looks, but now it is on its way to win the pimp contest, and I still have one more component to add to the bike for total pimpness :D

Some closeup piccys for you down below.

Havent weight is yet, the scale I want was out of stock so I have to wait for that.

The frame is $2350 I think, you can find the price on canfieldbrothers.com.

F1's kick A$$! Love mine and it rides WWAAYYY better than Chris o Lance said.
I was expecting a so so after talking to them but the bike rocks.
Nice build looks sweet.
You should be able to hit a 42-43lb mark pretty easy, I have mine at 41.9 with Avy dhs and 41.4 with fox 5.0 and on its way down to the 39-40 mark now. Its a Large to boot.

Thanks man, I'v seen yours and it sure looks nice, and it seems like you dont have any budget to stick to :thumbsup:

I would be really happy if the build will be ~40lbs so I wont cry about an extra 3-5 lbs. Mine is a medium, dont know if that really saves me any weight...maybe the best way is just to loose some weight off my self but not off the bike :p

Light cassette, magnesium peddals, gap cranks or light weight isis (fsa gravity lights or atlas), tubeless. Those are main weight areas that can reduce alot of weight as well as rolling resistance. I weigh 220 and rock the crud outa mine, no problems on these builds in over 3 years so far.
Can't wait to see a final build, and yeah a meduim is almost a 3/4 pound lighter than a large, i have med as well as the large.
