Medium w/ black links. BOS Stoy. MRP G2. I have all the components except the fork. The ironic thing is after waiting 5 months for the bike, I have to wait 3 more months due to a fractured wrist (scaphoid). Can't ride or work on the bike. Might as well wait for the new Boxxer.

2009 model looks the same except what Chris already disclosed: revised rear triangle (wider, stiffer and protects shock) and upper link. The headtube is shorter at 118mm.

Thanks to Chris Canfield (and Bullcrew) for advice. :clapping:

Awesome Bike/Frame... the ONLY thing i really dislike from Canfield is the Chain Ring "C" logo.... maybe it's just me but i always hated their logo, but loved their bikes....

POST up a full build when you can, and Healing Vibes sent your way!

I think one of the locals around here actually designed that for them. I like it too. You recognize it immediately.

:drool: One of the few bikes I would trade my bb7 for.

I feel dumb now though.. for a few moments I thought the square tubing was some sort of wierd 09 suspension design revamp.

Is it me or is everybody getting Jedi's now? Nice bike by the way, congrats.
Can't be too many, don't they only make 100 per year?

And after trying many many bikes i can say that my jedi is hands down the best for DH/FR that i have tried.

there is something to back all the hype about them

I am not sure how many they make a year but I am sure it's nothing crazy, it just seems like they've been popping up all over the place lately. I wouldn't mind trying one out myself.

sweet customer service.

reamed out seat tube to 30.9? I heard this was going to happen but I don't know if it did. I'm probably going to get a 30.9 I beam post and turn it down on a lathe to 30.4, those reducers creak so much.

I had a similar issue, spent all summer building it up, go to school and can't ride, come home for Tday break and end up in a cast for 2 months. I didn't get to really put some time in until 4 months after building it.

Considering the pool of U.S. downhills isn't really that big to begin with (compared to let's say baseball or soccer), and it's a good possibility the only way you'd hear of Canfield in the first place is if you browse forums, it's easy to put it in perspective that a good portion of Canfield owners will post on a forum about their new bike, making it seem like "everyone's doin it". Kinda a statistical way to view it...

alot of people on ridemonkey that know what a real bike is supposed to feel like ride canfield because they're amazing. i don't own one but i've ridden a few, and you really don't understand how amazing they are until you ride one for the first time

Have you had a chance to build it up and ride it?
BOS shock on Jedi sounds awesome :)

Not ridden it yet other than around the house. But I got it built finally earlier this week. Mainly with DH components like Saints, Formulas, Deemax, etc.

I still need 3 weeks to rehab my broken scaphoid which has kept me riding for the last 4 months. My wrist/thumb is sore/stiff just riding around the driveway. And I could only bend my wrist 30 degrees before I started doing exercises.

Chris/Lance really liked the BOS Idylle fork after they swapped in the medium spring. I was going to get the new Boxxer before I got a deal on a used Idylle.

Haven't weighed it yet. Probably around 38-40lb.
