Canfield Bikes Rolls Out ONE.2 29er Downhill Bike

Canfield Bikes ONE.2

PRESS RELEASE: Canfield Bikes

Today, Canfield Bikes introduced their new 2020 ONE.2 downhill bike. The bike is the first DH bike built around the Canfield Balance Formula suspension system and boasts eight inches of travel front and rear and is designed to accept both 29 and 27.5-inch wheels.

Our latest DH weapon is engineered to take on rough race tracks and big bike-park lines with confidence. Due to the ultra-efficient CBF tuned linkage, it pedals like no bike with eight inches of travel should to ensure no pedal stroke is wasted, whether it’s sprinting across the finish line or into the next jump.

Canfield Bikes ONE.2

bigquotesWe’re excited to present an all-new downhill bike for 2020. It draws on the heritage of the original The One as well as the brand’s roots in downhill and freeride with a modern take.Lance Canfield

Channeling the pedigree of the original Canfield The One, the ONE.2 is designed to be as versatile as it is capable. By default, it’s a 29-inch downhill bike with 203 millimeters of travel. But in addition to being able to accept two wheel sizes (or a combination for those that prefer a mullet setup), it can be set up in a more pedal-friendly mode. Rear travel can be reduced to 190 millimeters by short-stroking the shock and that can be matched with a 180 or 190-millimeter front fork. Stealth cable routing allows for the addition of a dropper post for a pedal-able freeride machine that doesn’t need to rely on chairlifts or shuttles.

Canfield ONE.2

The bike is designed around a 63-degree head-angle and long reaches across all sizes make it easy to find the sweet spot in the attack position, and 17.3-inch chainstays strike a balance between stability and agility. Öhlins suspension complements the ride qualities of CBF design. Details like internal cable routing featuring machined interchangeable ports to accommodate different cable configurations and a custom chainstay protector tie it all together.

The Canfield ONE.2 is available in Bentonite Grey with orange links or Avalanche White with black links in three sizes. Pre-orders can be placed now at CanfieldBikes.com as Factory Build complete bikes, frame, fork & shock and frame & shock packages.

 "ONE.2" is not as cool a name as "Jedi"

Still looks like an awesome bike though. I'm interested that they went CBF when people are still raving about the Jedi's ground munching ability with its Formula 1 suspension layout with all the rearward movement.

 maybe this a crispier dh bike; two different beasts though, I associate the jedi with a pulley lol

 Maybe that layout just didn't work well with a 29er. Maybe the wheelbase just got too big on a 29er.

 @housem8d: Possibly. If they're going to sell it partially on the option to make it a pedalable super freeride bike, then the Formula 1 suspension probably wouldn't have been ideal.

 ONE.2 is reference to the original ONE, also called the Balance, which was essentially this- the non-idler pulley jedi. Heres to hoping for the Return of the Jedi- the OG high pivot bike !!

 I'm assuming that this is the replacement for the Jedi, it's very similar to the bike that they had Frida Ronning racing on a couple years ago.

 @Monsees: ?? The frame in that photo is exactly the same as this new ONE.2, minus a gusset on the lower head tube/downtube junction.

The whole point of the Jedi was the high pivot and idler pulley. This ONE.2 is like the Commencial Furious. Its not the ultimate DH race bike, more like a park bike, part time racer.

 @hamncheez: Yes, it is very different than the Jedi. I have one at home and can speak to the high pivot/rearward axle path.

I'm basing my comment on the fact that they had someone racing World Cups on a similar bike. So I'm assuming that this is their new DH bike, not just a park/play bike.

 I really like that they spec a higher end shifter than derailleur rather than the other way around like a lot of other companies do. Put the fancy stuff where you can feel it on the trail, rather than where you can see it when it is sitting at the bike shop.

 Exactly! We aim to put the focus on spec that matters and create value where we can without detracting from performance.

 @canfieldbikes: Not sure why you would spec the frame with an IS160mm brake mount, though...
  • 12 0
 @booked-for-simulation: I'd rather all frames (and forks for that matter) went with IS vs post-mount. Most of the time I end up having to use an adapter anyway, so I think its preferable to have the bolt thread into the IS adapter vs threading into the frame/fork, in case of the unlikely event of damage to the threads.

 Suprised they rate it for both 27.5 and 29 without any kind of flip chip adjustment
  • 13 1
 In testing, we found it worked well with both wheel sizes without needing to adjust geometry. If you are running 29-inch wheels, you are likely prioritizing speed and roll-over, so the slightly higher 14-inch bottom-bracket provides a little additional clearance through the rough and chunk. If you decide to run 27.5, you are probably going for a more nimble, playful build, so the lower 13.3-inch bottom-bracket will be a bit snappier through the corners.
  • 3 0
 @canfieldbikes: are you using a 29er fork on both setups?

This is the first DH bike that I've seem in a while that's really piqued my interest. Metal, dropper compatible DH bike that looks rugged and fun. In my view that's really forward thinking. Love the look of the Ohlins gear too.

If you choose to run it 27.5 is the fork 27.5 specific of do you get the 29er fork?

Please drop one off to PB for testing, I've love to see it ran at full 200mm with 27.5's and 180 front and back with a single crown fork

 @canfieldbikes: Can you speak more to the Mullet setup? Since the frame, shock and fork combo comes with a 29er fork. How does the setup differ in geometry from the 29" setup? Would you run this setup or just full 27.5 with the 29er fork on a park bike?

 @Rageingdh: We tested with a 29er fork and 27.5 fork with 27.5 wheels. We recommend using a 29er fork regardless of wheel size to preserve geometry.

We recommend running the 29er fork with both wheels sizes to preserve other aspects of the geometry.
  • 1 0
 @Caddz: with a mullet setup, the most noticeable geometry difference will be a slightly lower bottom bracket and slacker head angle.

As for the setup on a park bike, that is personal preference. Both could be really fun.

  • 2 0
 too bad there is no option for longer chainstay setting, it looks like it could be a great pedalable FR bike, but CS too short. Also rather than just short stroking it would seem neccisary to make an alternate pedal position to reduce or maintain bb drop when used with shorter Axle to crown forks.

 Not sure how short stroking the shock is going to make it more pedal-able? Surely it will ride exactly the same, just bottom out sooner. If you couple that with a stiffer spring in order to hit the same sag % then yeah it will pedal better, but no better than if you just put the stiffer spring on without reducing the stroke....
  • 5 1
 could be just a marketing phrase to widen their target market. mtn bikers tend to correlate travel with pedal-ability. stupid, but thats how people think.
  • 8 1
 Short-stroking the shock won't make it more pedal-friendly. The CBF is already very efficient, and you are correct, it will just shorten the travel. The idea is a more versatile build that you WOULD pedal around. Short-stroking would just match it better to a shorter-travel fork, dropper, AM/enduro parts spec, etc., so if you chose to build it that way it would be more of a big-hit bike you can climb on rather than full DH mode.
  • 5 1
 A shorter stroke shock will ramp up quicker than a longer stroke, therefore running the same percentage of sag on a short stroke will result in less millimeters of wheel travel at sag, thereby pedaling ‘better’ while not necessarily bottoming out easier, But you’ll lose the midstroke traction that dh bike offers. Simply adding a stiffer spring to the long shock will possibly ramp up too far near the end of its stroke which ruins rebound control, traction, and if set too stiff, you may not get full travel.

If you’ve ever tried pedalling a long stroke shock at 30% sag it’s pretty wallowy because ramp up doesn’t effectively happen until deeper into the travel. Obviously kinematics play into it a lot, but Canfield must’ve accounted for this in frame design which is probably why they offer it as an option.

I’ve tried over springing my dh bike to get more preload support and its fine for huck to flat type stuff, but it ruins all the ride characteristics.
  • 2 4
 @canfieldbikes: cheers for the response, but I still don't get why you would do that. If you leave the bike at 200mm travel, but spring it like a 190 it will ride exactly like the 190. The ride will be completely indistinguishable. Except when the 190 hits full bottom out the 200 will have an extra 10mm in reserve. There is no advantage to short stroking whatsoever.
  • 2 0
 I guess you could run your seat a few mm lower actually.
  • 3 1
 @gabriel-mission9: it is so it wouldn’t be as unbalanced with a single crown at 180m
  • 1 2
 @Caddz: It would ride the same. Exactly the same. Just with 10mm of "get out of jail free" hidden at the end of the stroke. This is my whole point. Balance would not be affected.
  • 2 2
 @canfieldbikes: You'd have to take the chain completely of this bike to make even have a full DH mode and you know it...
  • 2 0
 @gabriel-mission9: for what it's worth, when run as a freeride bike with a 180mm fork or 650b wheels, you'll lower your BB height rather substantially. Running the frame at it's full 203mm capacity could mean a very, very low BB at bottom out with that reduced axle to crown or wheel diameter. Shortening that shock stroke may not improve clearance by a ton, but it could certainly help with pedal strike or chainring strike mitigation at full bottom.
  • 1 0
 @nation: that's a fair point

 @gabriel-mission9: I've ridden a 190mm rear, 170mm fork and it felt off to me. It was a long shocked delirium where I left the single crown on with the long stroked rear shock, felt unnatural to me...maybe other factors at play...Felt great with the 200mm Fox 40 on the front though.

 @Caddz: did you spring the rear end as if it only had 170mm?

 @gabriel-mission9: No, the Spring was the same, 650# Ti Spring for both SC and DC setups on Avalanche Woody
  • 1 0
 @Caddz: that'll be why then. If you had fitted a stiffer spring it would have felt more "normal" when paired with a shorter (stiffer) fork.
  • 2 0
 @gabriel-mission9: actually, short shocking (the eye to eye) and running a 180 fork would be pretty sweet with this bike. retains head angle, lowers BB, best of both worlds.
  • 2 0
 @cuban-b: It would make a lot more sense than what Canfield are suggesting, that's for sure... It might mess with the kinematics a bit, but that's a different conversation. It would at least do something though. Short stroking on the other hand is utterly pointless. There's enough nonsense and woo in the mountain biking industry as it is, without companies who should apparently know better adding to it. I struggle to believe no one else gets it, lol.

 I’ve been a Canfield owner for a some years, and have thought of them as the MTB design version of the mighty Bang & Olufsen. I regret this isn’t what I would expect from such a unique bike brand. It’s Bang! No Olufsen, Sorry but I’m out.
  • 1 1
 How is this a good comparison? Canfield makes bikes that look fantastic. They also perform extremely well.

Bang & Olufsen is the definition of a polished turd. They make pretty looking housings for low-end audio components. Beats-level garbage with a prissy Euro name. I've worked commercial audio processing. B&O is laughable.

So I guess you're right. Canfield is not B&O.

As you seem to prefer looks with no performance, might I suggest you look into Colnago?

 If you pre-ordered pedals you should have received some update emails from us. Email info@canfiledbikes.com with your order info and we get you sorted.

 Crazy how adding a rear shock bumps the MSRP up $1400

 Looks like typo. On their site it's frame+shock and frame+shock+fork.

 Why is frame and/or complete bike weight always missing from the specs!? It's arguably the most important data point in my opinion.
  • 5 0
 We don't have complete weights for all sizes, but we'll be updating once we get final production in and built up. This is a prototype, but approximately 36/37 with this build. DH build. No carbon.

 @canfieldbikes: what frame size was this prototype (S1,S2 or S3)?
What frame size is recommended for a 5'8" height?
  • 1 0
 @PJSANAB: This is closest to a size 2, production size 2 will be slightly longer. We'd recommend size 2 at your height.

 I feel like there should be a nut on the end of that shock mount bolt that is sticking out of the rear triangle.

 Frame looks sick. I would just use this for play so 26 inch wheels would work better for me.

 Hopefully it wont crack like the balance i had and support is a pain because they dont have replacement available.
  • 3 0
 Dunno why you got down-voted. Anybody that had a Balance knows this was a shitty problem. I had three links break on me. The pocket that the main pivot bearing pressed into in the linkage had a sidewall of .080". It was a shit design.

I will say that they made it right (with me anyways.)
