Canfield has come back with a vengeance and validates our faith of waiting it out. Although it wasn't much of a sacrifice if your already riding a skull bike! Looking forward to the next announcement of a 29er trail bike.

This might be a stupid question; will a boost hub work with the 150 crop out? A lot of us are running boost hubs in the previous Canfields that were made for 142 but were able to make it fit due to the slight flex in the rear triangle. I'm drooling over this new One.

You can probably get a kit. Oruse washers to make up a 2mm difference and redish the wheel

These will be later in the season. If the Balance isn't checking the box for you, we wouldn't want you to wait on anything else and miss out on riding.

Fingers crossed that it's fairly soon!! I'm in pretty desperate need of a new trail bike at this point and I'd REALLY prefer to wait on the new CBF trail bike versus buying another brand, I just dont wanna miss out on half the upcoming riding season

We will be sending updates to pre-order customers as they become available. If you have any specific questions about your order, give us a shout at [email protected] and we'll look into for you.

Random question: Will those of us who have pre-ordered any of the new frames be getting updates on where things are at in the production process? Email or text? I am about to **** myself with excitement waiting.

The Champ will probably have a personal take, but our answer is:

Formula 1 suspension will still have an advantage through the rough stuff due to the rearward axle path, although the CBF is still be very active and plush. If you've ridden a Balance, you know it is no slouch through the chunk—so imagine what it can do with another 2 inches of travel! It will feel more like a "traditional" downhill bike to most people, with the exception that it will pedal MUCH better.

We wouldn't recommend it without some kind of kit or adaptor.

Thanks for the honest response. The Balance might be "too much" bike for me but I'll take a look at the numbers again! I ride in your old stompin ground of Bham

What is everyone thinking about sizing? Is there a size chart I missed somewhere? With bikes getting to long low and slack, I feel like the size 3 is the right one for me. I had a 2016 Jedi in large which felt small and a large 2017 Balance that fit but I probably could have made the xl work also. 6'1" here.

I'm worried that the 3 may feel way too big, but looking at the numbers the 2 is barely bigger than my jedi was.

Any thoughts?

If you have a V1 "ONE" then you will be really amazed at how good the V2 became, my wife has a V1 and they are pretty much AM bikes and while great, its not the best for serious decending. The V2 is a very versatile, capable bike doing anything but definitely shines going downhill where the lenght and travel potential come into play. I'm always amazed at how good it is at super tight, slow trails where you would think a long raked out bike would flounder but it does not. Also while the V1 puts the power down uphill its a shorter design that just does not hang in there as long on knarly stuff, in my case having a double crown fork makes the front heavy so it will always steer uphill where many bikes cant keep the front down.
I cant imagine a V1 owner not loving a V2 and therefore the new ONE too.


I'm going to have to sleep on this one. I was really hoping for another extreme rearward wheelpath bike, but I still ride my original variant of "The One" on a weekly basis and love it. I just picked up a 2017 Jedi to replace my 2009. I'd like to build another bike by summer - perhaps a new "The One" is right, or perhaps it's time for a Balance.

I'm excited Canfield is back and I'm excited to see what's coming!

There's some personal preference for sure. ONE.2 has bigger jumps between sizes and at your height you could go Size 2 or 3. We're working on getting some sizing charts together, but feel free to give us a call if you want to talk through recommendations.

One.2 in stock and shipping now!

The ONE.2 is in stock and shipping now!

Build it as a full-on DH slayer or as a long-travel "super enduro" capable of earning its turns with a short-stroke shock, single crown, dropper and wide-range cassette...

I'm curious if that rear triangle and links would bolt up to a Balance front triangle and make for a 29er conversion in the ballpark of 140-150mm.
