For those that are waiting for their new bike to come. What have you bought or scavenged to put on your new bike?

I'll go first.

Tanus tire armor
203mm rear rotor
Wolf Tooth seat dropper trigger
Frame protection tape.

What am I missing?

Most of my drivetrain/brakes/cockpit is getting swapped over from my Balance, but new Deity stem to match the links, upgrading to EXT Era and Storia (stoked!) and Atomik Carbon hoops laced to i9 Hydras. Cool

E13 carbon cockpit and wheelset, Descendant carbon cranks, Deity bling, gold Formula brakes to match the links, and EXT squishy bits

oooooh, EXT. I went the same way. For that price it was hard not to upgrade.

Tilt orders with expedited air shipping should be hitting doorsteps as soon as today!

Photo from our friends at Ruby Canyon Cycles in Grand Junction, CO, who came to pick up some frames from our warehouse ... now an official Canfield dealer!

It was a project finding everything, but I’m building up my Tilt with a 12-speed Shimano drivetrain. It was what I could find: XT shifter, SLX cranks and an XTR derailleur. 4-piston XT brakes. The chain was actually the hardest thing to find in stock. I built up a set of wheels with Shimano hubs and DT Swiss XM 481 rims. All my bikes get Selle Italia Flite saddles. I can fit a 175 dropper, so that’s what it gets.

Nothing fancy, but it all works.

I’ve got all the parts needed to build it sitting and waiting for the frame and fork to get here!

I've had my new medium Tilt for about a month now (stock build from Canfield's website). Waiting for a small Tilt to arrive for the misses (should get here next month). Loving the Tilt - quick, nimble, fun!

Got a Raw Tilt frame on the way - Air shipping cutoff was last night (apparently extended from the original cutoff of May 31st) so hopefully soon?

Here's what I have waiting for it:

DVO Diamond D1 - Got a sweet deal on a used one, used extra budget to replace the lowers
DVO Jade X Coil
Magura MT5 HC brakes
Hunt Trail Wide wheelset
Specialized Purgatory front & rear (they were buy-one-get-one-free)
Microshift Advent X drivetrain, GX cranks
Oneup V2 dropper w/Wolftooth magura-clamp remote
SDG Radar saddle, Canfield logo
Funn Equalizer stem
Nukeproof Horizon V2 carbon bar
Pedals and Grips are still TBD, I've got some stuff laying around.

How did it come together?

Sold my Tilt and really regret it. Built up two brand new S-Works (Stumpjumper EVO and Epic Evo). Neither of them climb as good as the CBF on the Tilt. That CBF was simply amazing!

All to say, I am about to order another Canfield, maybe a Lithium or a Balance. May do a fun 27.5 thrasher build.

Any word from Canfield on when the next batch of Lithiums lands? The website says September. https://canfieldbikes.com/collections/lithium-long-travel-29er/products/lithium-raw-frame-frame-shock

No word on pre-orders, so I'm guessing that September estimate is a bit... optimistic. Tilt frames with air shipping were supposed to arrive "Late July" but no updates since end of June. Frown

Uh oh this sounds like a bit of the old Canfield Brothers operating mechanisms coming back into play… “communicate later and seldomly”
