The Formula One Competition

ATTENTION Canfield Brothers Formula 1 Jedi owners: We know you are itching to get in the saddle and get out rippin' again...

We want to kick off 2009 with a bang, and nothing says bang like a video contest!

The Contest:

Here at Canfield Brothers, we are all about gravity. It's why we do what we do. Now it is our turn to flip the script. We are asking all Jedi owners to submit a video showcasing the Formula 1 Jedi's suspension system. Easy, right? We want you to describe what makes the Jedi unique.

The Rules:
Running a bike company is a time-consuming and often difficult process. We would like to be able to sit down and watch hours of videos but it just isn't reality. Videos will be judged on how well you can show us what the Jedi's suspension is all about (pedaling, braking, bump performance, rearward travel highlights). Don't worry if you aren't the next Chris Canfield super shredder, as videos will not be judged on the quality of riding. They will however, be judged on how well they are shot, and how well they illustrate the abilities of the Jedi frame. (We strongly encourage the use of slow-motion to illustrate how the suspension handles). All videos should be uploaded directly to The deadline for submission is June 1st. Include keywords "Canfield Brothers and Jedi." Entries will be allowed in languages other than english so long as subtitles in english are included!

The Reward:
A BRAND NEW 2009 JEDI FRAME. The Formula 1 Jedi is the fastest downhill bike in the world. 7.75" of vertical travel and 2.5" of rearward, it blows through courses that leave others behind. For 2009 the Jedi receives a new upper link and rear triangle. The new rear triangle improves tire clearance and features a new construction to decrease debris collection on the shock and lower link. The dropouts have also been redesigned to provide greater strength for the times where going big is just the beginning.

Chances are if you own one already, you are the fastest rider around. We plan on keeping you there for 2009.

-Good Luck to everyone!
