We all know the frames are money...and would never break! Unfortunately Chris on the other hand is quite broken. Taken from the Canfield Brothers website....

It’s unfortunate and thankfully rare when we have bad news from the Canfield Brothers but this is one of those times. Chris was riding yesterday when he went down hard and broke his back at the c5-c6 disc. Long story short, he is going into surgery this afternoon around 4 and will be out for quite some time. What does this mean for Canfield Brothers Bikes? Best case scenario, not to much, but it will require the help of our friends to pull through this one. Chris’s medical bills will be substantial and insurance is only covering a small part of the total amount. We’ve given you the ability to donate through paypal. We’d really appreciate your help getting Chris back on his feet and feel free to send your best to Chris via email or comment. He’d love to hear from you.

Yeah I got the word from one of his riders today. I guess it's pretty bad. He also has internal bleeding and has been air lifted from Jackson Hole to Salt Lake City with from what I understand are life threatening injuries.
