    has anybody built and ridden a canfield jedi?

    is it as good as it seems on the paper? short CS, rearward travel, squatting under braking, no chain stretch... seems nothing's missing

    any photos btw?

    Wanna bet! :D
    Chris and Lance are at the factory right now overseeing finalizations. Chris is bringing back some stuff from there......................:D
    They ship mid to end of march and will be here mid April. Any that have ano issues will be powdercoated white, links are still the same as far as colors. Chris and I are talking about raw links as well, polished for him and I.
    Lances chocolate brown jedi has been gracing the the races from bootleg to it was supposed to be at the Keystone classic this week, doesnt look that way though.
    Jesse got ride time on the Jedi (Chris raced Bootleg with it) and said it was fast and nimble, absolutely loved it. He alro rides an F1.

    I like the looks of the single crown on that, I may have to build mine that way, looks good.

    I cant quit checking it out with the single crown, that looks good!
    Making me rethinking the whole 888 thing and just throw the 66 rc3 on there and have it as a freeride bike.

    Are you saying that if you put a 66 on it, you won't race it?

    Of course not, everyone knows that you can't race a single crown fork, it doesn't look as cool.
