    ... and if we just ... DingDingDing! Canfield comes out Yelling & Screaming w/something stiff, black & shiny

    Round 1

    Round 2

    And the winner is...

    I just want to say thank you to Canfield and more specific, Sean G. I had the frame within the same week i called it in. Excellent Customer service. Thank you

    Also, send me over the Nimble 9 protype once they are available. i'd be happy to give it some love








    And i was able to keep my gear ratio with no chain tensioner and i was also able to use a no stretch BMX chain.






    I had to get a new seat post and seat post collar








    Gorgeous day to give the bike some beating.

    Killer looking bike! I've been contemplating one, too. Is your bashguard custom?

    You sure love your shiny bike parts.

    Is that the semi-polished or black chrome frame?

    That is awesome (and not surprising) that they took care of you.
    I love steel, but for really aggressive riding the yelli seems like a much better choice than the N9.

    It is the black chrome. I like the color, it's very similar to a darker TI frame.

    I think you can build a much stiffer stronger bike than you can with the nimble9 frame.
    The Yelli is built super burly, and can fit the new breed of 140mm forks with tapered steerers. It also can accept most dropper posts. Add a set of wide/strong wheels and serious rubber and you have a super capable mountain bike that can keep up on all day epics with any crosscountry/trail/allmountain/lightgravity setup. It's silly the lines I try to hit with this bike and it somehow comes out on the other end with me still on top of it.

    Good for you and good on Canfield. So according to this, Canfield is saying the Yelli will take some serious punishment in it's current iteration, but not the Nimble, interesting

    I suppose, it is somewhat custom.

    Well, one of them has a tapered HT, very fat tubes, a joint between the TT and the DT, and a DT gusset. The other does not. I don't think they were hiding anything.

    Plus the Canfields, just in case anyone was confused, had the little chart on the website that rated the Yelli higher for AM and the Nimble higher for XC use. Just because a bike has AM abilities, doesn't mean it should be ridden off a cliff.

    I love that black chrome.

    I need to get one of the new Canfield head tube badges for my Yelli. They look awesome.

    Never looked on their site honestly for the literature on both bikes, just going by what I see them being used and makes total sense if the Nimble is built of lighter weight steel for the subtleties and is aimed more at XC riding. I'm sold on this geo for anything but serious XC racing, so again, makes perfect sense, just don't figure why it's not something that's been brought to light before when people ask about the 2 frames as direct comparisons.

    Actually, I have seen a number of posts dealing with this issue, but there is sooo much information about both these bikes in those big threads that information is easy to miss.

    If you're talking about those pages and pages long threads, then yeah, I gave up on following those a long time ago.

    To the OP, great looking bike, I have blue one on the way this week, your post got me stoked for it to arrive...What gear ratio are you running? I am going to set mine up SS and I have 1/8" chain I wan to use. I read where people found a magic gear with 32/21, but I was assuming that was 3/32? Anyway, be interested to know what your ratio is as I'd like to use my beefier chain.

    What does chain width have to do with the gear ratio? 3/32 and 1/8 only describes the width of the chain, not the length of the chain links. So both chains will fit identically on any gear ratio.
