Hey guys,

I am a tall (6 feet 6) rider from the Netherlands. I really want to get myself a Canfield Jedi. But in Europe these are very rare and hard to get.

I'm looking for an XL frameset of 2012 or 2013.

Especially now Canfield presented their 2014 model which is not coming in an XL size! http://canfieldbrothers.com/frames/formula-1-jedi

So anyone who's willing to sell their XL Jedi (maybe to get a 2014 model), let me know!

Vinny - For 2015, we are bringing back the XL to our Jedi. This new size will be aimed at 6'4"-6'6" riders such as yourself. We wanted to make a very BIG bike for your guys. The reach is 470mm with an actual TT of 579mm.

Frames are due to hit around the 1st of the year.

Cheers!

Crazy message for you Jedi owners....so I was recently in the hunt for a The One bike or frame to buid up, and i came up with a weird thought. possible to make an allmountain out of a jedi? i tend to like longer travel trail bikes, and manueverable DH bikes, so was thinking of building a 1x10 or x11 jedi with a single crown fork! i heard it pedals insanely well so im wondering if anyone has any insight on this. if not ill take a look for a the one/can diggle/ maybe a balance frame, but would love to be one with "the force" of rearword travel..see what i did there?

There was a guy who won an Enduro race at Northstar on his Jedi a few years back Smile

I have '13 Jedi which I have pedalled extensively on occasion to get to a trail...and while it does work....it's just not the same as pedalling The One.

Not to stop you from trying the Jedi for pedally stuff, but I think The One would be the perfect weapon. It has the right angles for actual non-dh riding, but was made to go DH with a triple crown if you want. Very versatile.

Coincidentally I have a 2013 The One which I might part with (small) hint hint Smile

ahh i 6ft1 ;eaning towards 6ft 2 so your medium may be too small womp womp....thanks for the info though! Theres a great deal on an early model jedi near me. might pick it up and grab and older 07 enduro for trail duties if the jedi isnt what i want...finding a The One frame seems to be a difficult task these days, and i cant even find enough info on a can-diggle

well the Jedi I am looking at comes with a dorado on it! But im considering buying a singlecrown/front brake/wheel/stem and handlebars to swap out on trailriding days. Ive just heard the bike pedals so well i would love to just swap out the front fork and the oter parts depends on weekday trail rides or weekend lift service runs

finding a the One within reasonable pricing is just impossible so

That's the current Jedi Frame.

Just bought the 2017 Jedi. Raw with red links. Going to build this up any insight would be greatly appreciated? Canfield does not have its own dedicated manufacturer thread?
