    Took my Nimble out for the first time this morning. Absolutely loved it! Still have to make some tweaks and get it dialed in.2013 Nimble 9 Build Thread!-20130817_070729.jpg

    Just a little confused on the Nimble:

    1. Does it require a special headset to run a tapered steerer?

    2. Can I run a 140mm fork?

    Gracias!!

    Earthpig, while we recommend a 100mm to 120mm fork on our site, we see no issues running a 140mm on the N9. We have actually been running our in house demo this way over the last month and LOVE it!
    2013 Nimble 9 Build Thread!-canfield-brothers-nimble-9-140mm-fork.jpg

    Here is our Headset Guide:

    You will need to know if you are running a straight or tapered steerer fork. If you are running a straight, you will need the 30mm crown race. If you are running a tapered, you will need the 40mm crown race. The easiest thing do to is to order the upper and lower cups separately. (Cane Creek calls this their headset solutions.) Below are examples of Cane Creek 110 headsets from BTI-USA.com:

    Upper:
    DC-1602 ZS44/28.6 upper 8mm black 53g
    DC-1603 ZS44/28.6 upper 15mm black 60g (The second option has a taller stack height)

    External Stack Lower:
    DC-1616 EC44/30 lower 12mm black 61g (Straight steerer)
    DC-1617 EC44/40 lower 12mm black 59g (Tapered steerer)

    Well, this is the "beta build" for this bike. Harvest some parts off another bike just to get this one rolling until the new wheels and fork arrive. It will end up having blue I9 wheels laced to Stan's hoops, and a 120mm Fox F34 fork. Beefy.

    Had the maiden ride this morning and I am in love.

    I too haven't received the DO yet. Not that it really matters as I'm not going to drop $45 to re-do the rear hose (goodridge) just yet. I would also like to see a red build. Anyone with a chrome frame experiencing any rust at the welds? I've noticed several spots on various welds where the chrome is thin. I noticed the thin chrome, copper peeking out, the day I took it outta the box. The main problem area is at the seat tube/chain stay junction. Very seldom do I ever leave water or mud to sit on the frame.

    Looks like it was taken at night with a flash. The glare is what's causing the weird coloring on the frame I think.

    Teaser shot!



    Build won't be finished until the beginning of October since some parts are taking the slow boat, but here's a little taste to tide you guys (and me!) over until it's all here.

    Mainly black, but this is a parts bin/used bits build, so there's some white and silver in there too.
