Canfield Bikes Returns to Production for 2020

Canfield Brothers, a high-end boutique mountain bike manufacturer, today announces it has officially rebranded as Canfield Bikes and will be producing new bikes that will be available beginning in early 2020.

The announcement comes as the brand celebrates 20 years in business, and breaks the silence after a two-year hiatus during which the Canfield brothers, Lance and Chris, worked through restructuring the business, a process that ultimately resulted in Lance acquiring Chris’ share of the company.

“We’re proud to announce that Canfield Bikes is alive and well,” says Lance Canfield, owner, and designer. “We thank all our customers and fans who have always believed in us and even after two years consistently check in with us for updates, wondering when we will be making more bikes. We apologize for the silence, but it was necessary while we restructured. This is the announcement you have all been waiting for. I’m excited to carry the torch and continue doing what I love: building badass mountain bikes worthy of wearing a skull on the head tube.”

After working together for 20 years, Lance and Chris have decided to pursue their passions in different ways. Lance will continue as owner and designer of Canfield Bikes. Chris—who recently won the Masters title in the USA Cycling Downhill National Championships and a Masters World Championship aboard his Canfield Jedi—will retain the rights to the Canfield Balance Formula (CBF) suspension patent, working to license and implement the patent on other platforms. 

Canfield Bikes will continue to use CBF suspension.

“We congratulate Chris on his title wins and wish him the best,” says Lance. “His spirit, energy, and creativity have played a vital role in making the brand what it is today and he will be missed. But we have no doubt that great things await him.”

For two decades, the brand has amassed a nearly cult following despite minimal marketing thanks to its rider-focused engineering philosophy, industry-leading suspension designs—from the legendary Formula 1 linkage on its Jedi downhill bikes, to the active and efficient patented CBF on recent trail and all-mountain bikes—and a customer-centric approach to sales and service.

Building on the brand’s heritage, Canfield Bikes will maintain the level of quality products and hands-on customer service riders have come to expect. Components, including Crampon Mountain and Crampon Ultimate pedals, rebuild kits and C2 AM and DH cranks are in stock and available immediately. 

New bikes are slated to be available by spring 2020, with details and pre-order options expected by the end of the year. Service parts for existing bikes will also be available.

“Canfield Bikes was founded on a simple principle: building the bikes that we want to ride,” says Lance. “And nothing about that is going to change.”
