    Yah, guess their numbers are like Giants... on paper they say 14.3 and 65 but,
    actually lower and slacker. I have my fork height about as low as it can go so
    maybe a little steeper than 63. But 64 is an educated guess. My Giant Glory was
    64.5 last year and the Trek is noticeably slacker but not by a lot. So prob. 63.5-64
    which feels real good!

    Pretty much looks like any other Isis BB cups. Only set up for their spindle size.
    I think people were using FSA if I am not mistaken. So I guess Profile decided
    to make their own. Has 2 sets of sealed bearings in each side. I likey them.

    The Glory's I've measured (with a Wixey gauge) have come out exactly as stated. I.e. crap.

    There must be sth. wrong. When my Commencal is standing next to a Session of my buddy, it looks way slacker. And the numbers by the manufacturers tell the same...
    Commencal: Boxxer, 63° headtube-sleeve
    Session: Fox40 (even longer than a Boxxer)

    But maybe you're right and my Commencal has an 61° angle. ;)

    haha yeah, no longer battleship status, half-textured/half-smooth raw aluminum, rat-rod status.. I'm sure she's still going to be hovering around 40lbs, 37lbs ain't happening ;)

    I want to know how this bike rides, Ive been looking at a play bike and I'm really curious as to how it handles etc... Review when you get a bit of saddle time!
    Im staying on the Jedi (its surgically hooked to me! :D) but I love trying different stuff to cruise on and play and this bike has been at the top of the list to mess with.

    How is the canfield not a play bike? It was originally designed for hucking gnarly drops!

    Oh wait... it's just an excuse for you to buy another bike!! :)

    SOmething like that!!!
    No the canfield is great for Freeride and rips single trac. Its a beast on a race course and corners great no complaints at all... It literally is my do it all bike.

    BUT
    I like trying new stuff I am not the biased guy thats says its the greatesd thing and has zero experience, Id rather keep my ace in the hole (jedi) and I can still goof off on other bikes and just have a good time riding.

    But Lance just called and we chatted a bit, Ill try and get ahold of chris when he gets back, I found my new freeride rig, mini DH trail rig!!!

    This is LAnces prototype, theres a few small changes but I beleive this will occupy a spot in my garage soon!

    I am wondering how this bike is selling for santa cruz? I almost bought one for this season because it is exactly what I wanted in a bike...I may get one next season.

    What is crazy is that very few people are posting pics or generating any buzzz...heard almost nothing on it.

    Literally, this is like the second one Ive seen in a year or so....
    Hell I thought they scrapped the bike being as you dont see it.
    Thats the thing you rarely see a SC guy posting his bike, very few v-10s etc but lots of Intense and others...

    i am up to my a$$hole in snow so this is all i got right now :(

    I hope people are buying it and riding the hell out of it, it's a great 'riders' bike...nothing to blingy but i bet you can ride that for many seasons without issue.

    First thing I thought when I saw the Driver 8 is ... what's that? Haven't heard of that before.

    Seems like it could be a pretty capable bike with some -2 degree HA reducer cups. 66.5 is a bit steep for me but the rest of the Geo looks pretty dialed.

    i only have one ride on the driver 8, so far. i'm about to take it out for it's second ride, today.

    but from the first ride, i felt right at home on the beast. my previous bike was a second generation V10. and i also have a last generation iron horse 7 point (with the straight top tube).

    compared to the V10:
    i like that the driver 8 doesn't sag so much into the travel. it's more playful and better for jumps and drops. the driver 8 is still very soft and supple, with excellent small bump compliance. yet, it maintains more trail feel, than the V10. the driver 8 pedals and accelerates great; better than my old V10. i also like the geometry of the driver 8. seems to have predictable over-steer, where the tail drifts out, instead of pushing the front tire. very stable and confidence inspiring on the steep, loose stuff.

    compared to the 7 point:
    the bottom bracket is much lower on the driver 8, with the same fork. like, an inch lower. the angles on the driver 8 are much more slack. the driver 8 is more plush and better at absorbing bumps.

    after one ride, i definitely enjoy the driver 8. i have a feeling it's only going to get better. i'll get back to y'all after i do some more trail riding. today's ride consists of many turns and high speed rock sections...
