Hey guys,

Just looking for some opinions on the PDC Eight2Five compared to the Canfield F1. I'm looking at buying either of them but there aren't any around here for me to test out.

Has anybody out there ridden both?

Cheers,

the F-1 is a really good bike...very stable at fast speed because of the longer wheelbase. Rear end is real stiff....real stiff...............

It seems to be a great little bike, and oddly, it feels more like a race bike then anything. I think with the full 8" Boxxer on there, the bb would raise up enough to clear everything, and it wouldn't be an issue. its super low and ready to rip, and from the short ride i took on it, it pedals great.

Should be a fun toy.

i've had a couple months on my pdc (riding @ whistler & the north shore). its been a fantastic all round bike; low & super stable at speed through the rough stuff, but light, nimble & pedals really well. its super compact, but has enough seat-tube extention to climb. 39lbs as it sits; will be mid 37 with a boxxer wc.

Hey, just wondering what kind of tyre clearance the back of it has. I see you're running a Maxxis. What size is it and is there much mud clearance for a 2.5 minion?
