    The NEW Canfield Brothers Nimble 9

    The NEW Canfield Brothers Nimble 9-nimble-9-mtbr.jpg

    The Canfield Brothers 29er revolution continues with the ALL NEW Nimble 9. From the start of the redesign of the current Nimble 9, we wanted to give the bike a distinctive look different from what is currently available in chromo hardtails. We wanted to incorporate a hydro formed toptube and a 44mm head tube. New innovations include a removable front derailleur block that allows the frame to look super clean when setting it up as single speed. We also designed new sliding dropouts that are reminiscent of something seen on a custom motorcycle. Lastly, we gave the new Nimble 9 the innovative Canfield Brothers 29er geometry.

    We will be releasing the new Nimble 9 in nine colors, Canfield Glow in the Dark Sparkle Blue, Sparkle Orange, Sparkle Green, Matte Black, Gloss Black, Deep Red, Midnight, Forest Green and Limited Edition Chrome.

    Hmmm... still see the recommended fork length is 100mm~120mm. So is the 2nd gen. Nimble9 strong enough for a 140mm fork given that the headtube is a 44mm which can(?) takes appropriate headsets for a tapered fork?

    Super excited to get a new N9 built up! A bit more standover clearance, more heel clearance, new rear brake placement, snazzy sliders... Now I just have to figure out if I wanna stick with the glow-in-the-dark Blizzard Blue, or shift over to Midnight.

    I won't even try to explain to my wife. I love my yelli but i want to try steel and possibly run SS.

    SWEET ! head tube lengths same as the yelli. Everything swaps over.

    That is honestly one of the sexiest steel frames I've ever seen. Dig the geo, too.

    You should send me one, so I can test it on these steep and rugged Idaho trails for you. You wanna be Gem State Certified, don't you?

    6.5 lbs (estimated)


    And I thought my El Mariachi was heavy at 5.7 lbs.

    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    If you ever get over to Boise (and will fit a medium,) you're welcome to try my v1.0 out any time!

    Certainly no featherweight, but keep in mind- this frame is built to handle far more abuse than the El Mar.

    Thinkin' the midnight blue might look pretty good with my current parts...The NEW Canfield Brothers Nimble 9-nimble9junkyard.jpg

    Awesome but content

    The new design really does look amazing, much more stiff and burly and I love all the color options. I think for my purposes, longer XC/trail rides, the original version suits me better, still playful and nimble and a good pound lighter and a bit more compliant. I'm glad I got one of the few remaining 2012's, but I'm sure I'm in the minority here.

    Really nice looking frame but I'm personally never going to ride single speed so would be reluctant to buy a frame with sliding dropouts. That may just be perception but as the dropouts are replaceable I would like the option of using my 142 X 12mm. wheels. Any chance of other dropouts happening?
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    There's at least 2 of us who feel that way.

    Pretty much my thoughts exactly. I was hoping that the new version would offer 142x12 dropouts that I could retrofit to my v1 Nimble, but it doesn't look like that can happen with the new dropout design.

    I am thinking about ditching my Jabber. I will hang the parts from the Jabber on my old N9, and I will take the parts off the current N9, and hang them on a new frame.

    I love the new frame.
