Canfield cranks , anyone running them ?

I remember dude with Kingdom does, forgot his name, he used to rep for them

Anyway, looking at 155/160 cranks, anyone know of other brands running short-ish cranks?

Edit

Le dude

Not sure if Middleburn do but they would look mighty stubby at even 160

IIRC Profile have options that can work for MTB, starting at something crazily short like 125mm.

Upgrades!

Just swapped the cockpit today to a Kingdom Sparta Titanium bar (780mm) and a Kingdom Ronin Titanium stem (35mm).

That stem is dreamy, definitely going to have to put one on a future build! How to the ti bars feel in terms of ride characteristics? Never known anyone who runs them

This is my first set and we have snow everywhere currently. I'll report back in the Spring.

Fair enough, look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Super comfortable. They dampen trail chatter and vibrations amazingly well, and have a it of springiness that takes the harshness out of things, but at the same time feel connected rather than numb, so you still know what the front wheel is doing. Basically the same properties as a good Ti frame.
I liked the Sparta bars enough to have sets on two bikes, one of which I've been running for about four years, and by preference I'd have them on all of them Wink

Sounding like the perfect bar material! The Rust ones have been on my radar for a while now even with the eye watering price

Nothing beats Rust bars ime as they’re triple butted and feel lovely both at absorbing vibes and sweep
