    2014 Canfield Brothers Nimble 9

    2014 Nimble 9 - Shipping early May, including LE Chromes!

    2014 Canfield Brothers Nimble 9-canfield-brothers-2014-nimble-9.jpg

    We've made a few changes to the 2014's:
    142x12mm dropouts, Rock Shox Maxle included
    27.2 Seatpost
    LE Chrome, Lime, Canfield Blue and Gloss Black

    (The 27.2 seatpost change alleviated the need for our factory to shim the seatpost as we did on the 2013's.)

    Features:
    4130 chromoly steel
    68 degree head angle (120mm fork)
    Adjustable 16.25 16.9 chainstays
    Low toptube for increased stand over height
    Custom sliding rear dropouts
    Hydroformed toptube
    ED Black treated for superior anti-corrosion resistance, (*Painted models only)
    Removable direct mount front derailleur block
    Two water bottle bosses

    2013 Nimble 9 owners looking to upgrade their dropouts to 142x12, we will have upgrade kits available for $150, including a Rock Shox Maxle.

    For more information, please see our webstore:

    I thought there were no longer going to be cable guides on the down tube and chain stay.

    The image is a 2013 with a dropout mock up. The routing has been changed for the 2014's and as always, I will post actual production images once the frames are in stock.

    2014 Canfield Brothers Nimble 9

    Care to elaborate on why the seat tube size has changed this year??

    Every discussion about the new N9 goes straight to this line of questioning.


    I spoke with my bike shop today. They are gonna call and pre order one for me tomorrow.


    Thanks.

    The 2014 is Canfield Blue. It will be close in shade but will not glow in the dark. (Our factory no longer carries the glow color).

    Answer to my last question? Hook a obsolete N9 owner up!!
    Our frames are made in Taiwan, NOT CHINA.

    2013 owners looking to upgrade their bike, we have produced a limited amount of 142x12 dropout kits. They are available through our webstore and will start shipping the beginning of next month.

    Where does the rear caliper on the new 2014 drop outs mount, inside the stays or out?

    The brakes will mount via a post mount on the seatstay, the brake hose routing has been updated on the frame as well.

    What has changed from the 2013 to the 2014 frames? If I could, I would rather find a 2013 frame since I have a plethora of 30.9 dropper posts that I would like to use. But also I have a 142 wheelset, so why wouldn't I go with a 2013 frame that has the 30.9 post and then just buy the 142 dropouts?

    And shipping in 4 weeks means from the factory? Or from Bellingham to me??

    And I second the "why 27.2 seatpost" questions...

    Our 2014's will be hitting our office the middle of next month. As always, we will have orders shipped out within a few days.

    We moved to a 27.2 post to alleviate the need for the seatpost shim we had to use on the 2013's. When we designed the 2013, there were no droppers available in 27.2. Now the KS LEV, KS Supernatural, Thomson Dropper and X-Fusion Hilo are all available in 27.2.

    Thank god. I'm so ready for horizontal drop outs. I just shredded a titanium cog thanks to my shitty chain tensioner.

    Thanks for the update vin.

    2014 Nimble's

    Our factory sent over a few images as teasers that I wanted to share. Frames will be hitting the port later this week and I'll update as soon as they are here in the warehouse. As always, I'll shoot and post the new frames as soon as they arrive. (Please note we will be out of the office on Friday 5/16/14 for the opening day at Whistler.)
