Canfield Bikes Announces 3rd Generation Yelli Screamy
The 29er hardtail that started a revolution is revived with modern geo, features and sizing.
Canfield Bikes, high-end boutique mountain-bike manufacturer, reveals the third generation of the Yelli Screamy, the aluminum hardtail 29er that revolutionized the way bikes with big wheels ride.
Back by popular demand, the all-new Yelli Screamy is longer and slacker with increased reach across all sizes and a 65.5-degree head-angle (with 130mm fork), yet retains its rally car-like handling thanks to 16.7-inch chainstays and signature Canfield geo. Crafted from 6061 series aluminum for a compliant ride, the Yelli features stealth dropper routing, ISCG tabs, boost spacing and three water bottle mounts.
“The original Yelli was the 29er we wanted to ride.
It didn’t exist, so we built it."
“The original Yelli was the 29er that we wanted to ride,” says Lance Canfield, owner and designer. “It didn’t exist, so we built it. We loved the speed and rollover of the big wheels, but 29-inch mountain bikes just weren’t fun to ride back then. We changed that.”
When it debuted in 2011, the Canfield Yelli Screamy was the first 29-inch mountain bike with sub-17-inch chainstays and aggressive all-mountain geometry. It was the only hardtail 29er that didn’t ride like one, and proved that a lightweight, efficient mile-muncher could still make you smile on the descents.
Today, that spirit lives on in the third generation. Slice and dice singletrack. Rail pump tracks and jump lines. Load it with frame bags and get lost. Keep up with your spandex-clad friends on the climbs and embarrass them on the descents. The Yelli Screamy remains one of the most versatile and fun bikes in the Canfield lineup.
Available with Orange Dreamcycle, Purple Haze, Slate Train and Blue It powder coat finishes in S, M, L and XL. Frame only options start at $799.99 and complete bikes start at $3,399.99. Frame and fork bundles are also available. The Yelli Screamy is available for pre-order now with special discount pricing.

How does this compare with the Nimble 9?
@Donald R Secor: We don’t recommend less than 27.5×2.8
@Dave Neal: Thanks for the stoke!
Does this frame fit 27.5 plus wheels?
I have owned 4 Yelli’s (I currently own a red one) & I’ve built countless more for my customers. So, I’m pretty excited for the rippiest hard tail in the industry to make it’s well-deserved comeback. This bike will blow your socks off with its shredability. Plus, it climbs back up the hill like a champ. You will almost forget about your full-suspension bike!
