:lol: Too funny Doug but she is pretty dirty so I have not posted pics for the most part. I wanted to finish putting on my X.0 stuff for those updates as well.DaGoat said:Comon' Rick... you can do it!!! Let's see what ya got!!! :thumbsup:
Did ya go 7" or 8" Enduro?
Coming from a man who can own any bike he wants and can ride like hell that means a lot Doug, thanks man. :thumbsup: On the build... I will have two builds somewhat I will explain in a min.DaGoat said:Can't wait to see the final build Rick. That's one awesome bike!!!
Yeah, for the most part I am still doing mostly AM riding and very light FR duty at this time. In time I will try to step it up but we will see how it goes.DaGoat said:I guess I spaced the change in shock mounting changing the travel. 7" sounds just about right to me for trail riding. Seems the reviewers felt the same for all around climbing.
Um, yeah, vpp design but the way things line up better than the Nomad and Intense in most respects. I know what you mean about flex had that issue on the Nomad and the 6.6 is similar. The Canfield is less flexy for sure.DaGoat said:I guess it is a VPP design. My Intense 6.6 was somewhat flexy, but the way they sandwiched the lower link into the frame on the Canefield looks like it makes it really stiff.
You know I went with both for two different set ups. I got an XC/AM set up that is lighter with the std 135 QR option in the rear (rear triangle). Lighter wheelset for the more epic XC/AM climbs/rides. I have the 12 MM Maxel rear T sitting on my kitchen table for the AM/FR days (light to med duty FR days). Looking for a set of I9s for that rear T on those days, prob on 823s to drop/huck whatever I want with little to no worries (well for a rim failure that is :lol).DaGoat said:Did you go with the 12mm Maxel Option in the rear? I did that on my Nic and it really does make the rear end solid. I'm a fan of Horst Link designs cause I always thought they were a bit stiffer.
You know I do agree my Nomad climbed pretty good but on occ. the bike did inch worm some. The Canfield does not inch worm at all and I can stand up and sprint on this bike and she does not work against me, she works for me. She sprints very, very well, I just need to get my a$$ in shape :lol:DaGoat said:But the way the Canefields have designed this VPP setup is real sweet. I really dug the way my Intense clawed up techy climbs. You don't get that from a Horst Link.
Your assumption would be correct, 08 Talas RC2 36. Its been a good fork but plan on upgrading the internals to the new 09 Talas (much improved from 08 and 07). I got a little crazy and talked about the 2010 boxxer WC but the Talas is plenty for the Canfield One (its more of an XC/AM bike than a FR/DH bike). If I get a Boxxer 2010 WC it will be for my 08 or 09 Canfiled Jedi! Fastest downhill bike in the world, yep I said it, :lol: I thought about the Totem but over killer for the One so no Totem for me right now.DaGoat said:So I assume you went with a Fox 36 Talus up front? I know you were making noise about the new Boxxer. That would be trick for downhill but I would think way too much for general trail riding. Although you could chop a Boxxer Team Coil to 7" and that might be cool.
Both would be great for that bike, keep me posted.DaGoat said:I myself am thinking about a Totem for the front of the Nic. I like the Wotan as a trail fork, but for drops the extra 1" would be nice.
Thanks agian Doug Yeah, the only "ONE" (no pun intended, well ok I lied it was intended :lol: ) in NM actually. Not the only Canfield I think a few Jedis and maybe a Balance or Lucky but no Canfiled Ones other than mineDaGoat said:Can't wait to see the photos dude and way to go. You've got probably one of the very few "Ones" in NM!!! :thumbsup:
Alright Doug got her on the scale finally. Not as light as I was thinking but I have some pretty heavy tires so that did not help. This is my xc/am build for the most part. With a 2.35 High Roller in the rear and a Thomson MP SP she may come in at 30.5 or so and that will do fine for me.DaGoat said:Great feedback Rick... so what 'ya weigh in at? I bet under 34lbs in FR mode!!!
:lol: No, you caught me I will be going with the Elka shock on the Jedi but Elka was still a few days away from shipping so I grabbed my shock off the One. The shock on the One was Pushed already so now just waiting on Elka. I am going to mount the Elka at Angel Fire. Chris is going to bring mine with him them and I will bolt it on real quick.aenema said:Did the One give up its shock to the Jedi? Looks like you bastardized it. Going with a different option for One or getting it Push'd? Whats going on there?
My Jedi is right at 40, almost dead on with a solid wheelset and tire and no real effort for weight loss. Even run Codes but do have a recently converted Boxxer WC, was a Team. I love my Jedi
Yeah not sure what I am doing with that mess right now :madmax: :lol:Calhoun said:damn Ricky, that is some fine machining. Looks like you got some Spy vs Spy color scheme going too :thumbsup:
Thanks Doug Yeah I was really pleased with the One you should see how I have it built up now. I got better wheels (DT Swiss EX1750s) and I upgraded the rear tri to 12MM Maxel and the rear is stout (well more stout ). I will post up later on that bike.DaGoat said:....sorry Rick, took a while to clean my jeans!!! Damn bike porn... looks sweet dude!!! Still can't believe what the One weighs.... :thumbsup:
