    My freshly built Nimble"7"...

    Well finally decided to order and convert a Canfield Nimble9 to 650B... So far feels good. Running a 26" 140mm fork for now but will probably go to a true 650b 150mm travel fork shortly... No clearance issues currently even fully compressed, so we shall see. BB height is 11-5/8" static

    Where are the pics?





    I guess my pc at work didn't want me to see them. I can view on my home pc. Shall I 650b my freshly built Honzo?

    Oh that's just purrty, really like the orange with the blue accents. You don't appear to have much room for that front wheel, perhaps it's just the viewing angle, what tire size is it? Nice job.
    No fuss with the MUSS

    The tire is a Hutchinson Toro 2.35. There is about 1" of clearance. At the arch.. hard to see but there is a mud gaurd on there making it look tighter

    Yep, that's a hot build. HTA and BB #'s?

    I'd like to see a 650b ht frame from the brothers. Apparently there will be some surprises upon the release of the 160mm 27.5/26er frame, I reckon a 650b ht along with the 160mm would compliment their current lineup nicely.

    Thanks....
    HTA- 68.5
    STA- 72
    BB- 11-5/8" with 26" 140mm fork
    After todays ride thinking on changing the fork either to a longer travel or a 140mm 29er fork. It felt fine but seemed a little too much over the bars in sag. It will be more of a learning curve to be back on a hardtail after riding long travel bikes for the last 6 years exclusively. But so far enjoying it and am trying to get as many people on it as I can to spread the Canfield love!!!

    How about a 160mm 27.5 fork? Same axle to crown as a 140mm 29er fork.

    It weighs right around 28# Will probably drop a little when the blue accent wheels get on it.

    That bike looks at home on those trails. Beautiful pics and good work, Rsullivan. Not trying to question you jeffw but I thought I read a 650b 150mm Pike was 545 A2C which is dang close to my 29er 140mm Rev at 548 A2C.
