by Matt Letch 11

We’ve just got this press release from Simon at Progressive Bikes…

“Progressive bikes adds Canfield Brothers to its product line up!

“We are pleased to announce that Progressive Bikes are now the new UK distributor for Canfield brothers range of frames and components!

“Canfield Brothers Bikes is just that. Two brothers from the USA, Chris and Lance, building some of the best All Mountain/Freeride and Downhill bikes in the world. Not only do they design and oversee production of each frame, but they ride and compete on the bikes too. Because they are competing on their own bikes, they demand the best performance available from the frames. Canfield have spent the last 10 years designing, developing and prototyping the unique suspension systems culminating in the ‘Jedi’ DH/FR frame and the unique ‘The One’ AM/FR frame.”

Crampon pedals

The Size 0 Of The Pedal World

As Grippy As A Thistle Stuck In A Spaniels Ear

With the new Crampon Pedals from Canfield Brothers, you effectively lower your bottom bracket by 8mm/.25″ while raising your pedal clearance by the same. This one-of-a-kind pedal also allows for more efficient pedaling by allowing you to lean back and push through the normal “dead spots” at the top and bottom of your pedal stroke. The thinnest pedal platform on the market also allows for more balance and stability because you are standing on the side of the spindles instead of the top. weight is a very respectable 395 grams!

The pedal has been tweaked from the previous version, with amendments made to the pins to stop them backing out so easy and a new range of colours including light blue, gold, grey and black. Retail price on the pedals will be £125.

The Crampon pedals are due to ship in a few weeks time and can be purchased directly from us at Progressive Bikes. Numbers are limited so be quick and get your orders in!

  1. WTH is that chain devise on the Jedi ?

  2. I really like the look of “The One”. The websites listed do not have any details of this bike. It still shows the old model. Would be interested to hear if it can be had with a coil shock too?

  3. Gah! Bloody HTML…

    MRP G2 with an idler to prevent chain tension effects on the suspension, presumably.

  4. I wonder if Jedi will get a Jedi (or Simon sponsors him 😉 )

  5. Radioman, the new The One info will be available soon. If you drop me an email i’ll keep you in the loop.

  6. Does this mean that the few forum threads that Si isn’t pushing Chumba, he’ll be saying how great Canfield’s are instead?

  7. Canfield, Chumba and Brodie are great 😉

  8. Si go on then tell us the price (do hate press release’s with out this info)

    thanks

  9. Made in the same factory as Mythic(Banshee) and Evil amongst others. If the build quality of my Mythic Spitfire is anything to go by these Canfields will be awesome too.

  10. The Crampons are £135, now come in Black, Gold, Blue and Grey, have new pins to stop them backing out and can be purchased from here http://www.progressive-bikes.co.uk/tiholeshot.html

    the jedi will retail at around £1699 and the ‘The One’ £1299. The new ‘The One’ frames will be shipping later in the year.
