This was answered in our intro article. Here's what Brandon replied to a similar comment --- We did back in 2015 but are definitely due to ride another one of those beauties. You'll be pleased to hear that we've got a Canfield Riot under our Squamish, BC tester right now.

All these great bikes but you left the best out? No Canfield Bros? Where's the love? I know they're not a large manufacturer, but they typically make designs a few years ahead of the pack that the big guys usually catch up to a few years later. Case in point, the CB Riot. Super progressive design from 2015 that these 2017 bikes are just beginning to adopt.

Trails are OK... Lift is only open on the weekends, and it can take only 2 bikes per 6 chairs so the line backs up quick! Looking forward to next year!

Another Pro-Tip: Consider the layers of Gorilla Tape around the valve hole, imagine how thick and heavy the tape is when layered. If you start 1" away from the hole, wrap twice, and end 1" past the hole in the other direction... You now have 3 layers of tape around the valve hole. Coupled with the weight of the valve stem, you now have enough weight in that one spot to throw off the rotational balance enough where you can feel your wheels wobble in the air. This also creates a thickness difference in the tape and how the tire will sit against the rim, directly at the valve stem. To help counter-act these effects, I start my wrap at 180 degrees opposing the valve stem, 2 full wraps and end the second wrap directly at the position where I started. This gives you a nice uniform wrap with no bulges or weight imbalance, while still retaining a full 2 layers over all of the holes.

I can't even take the rest of this article seriously after your Moab introduction. So lets look into my crystal ball... You decided to pedal the whole Porcupine loop instead of paying for a shuttle = amateur. Based on your dehydration, I can assume you brought maybe a couple water bottles...more

Bike. Motor. = Motorbike

Should have all the rules attached that any other motorized vehicle has. They DO NOT belong on non-motorized trails. Period.

In the video, he describes that the 150 and 170 WILL be available in the 30.9 diameter. That's the key!
