    Any 2013 Nimble 9 news?

    Just asking since I haven't seen anything yet. I'm hoping the new model will have a tapered head tube and some different colors.

    I am hoping to just be able to get one!

    (But if I had to pick, would love to see the dark blue from the Yelli lineup)

    We can't say to much just yet... BUT, I can say that we have listened to all of your requests on the new bike. We are looking like May for an ETA... as we get closer I'll have a full press release for you, and promise to share a few drawings once we are deeper in production!

    Here's some news; I figured out the origin of the name.

    Very curious about the new N9. Tempted to get one of the last XL's, too.

    The updates of the N9 are pretty exciting-
    A new look- and the 44 HT.
    Same Geo though.
    Seat tube also changes to the 30.9.


    Can't give out more than that.

    But they are looking like they will hit sooner than May.

    Tdee - We haven't decided on colors yet as we have a bit of time still. What would you like to see for colors on the new N9?

    Highlighter yellow like this:



    And pillar box red:



    And a raw finish like this would be killer too:

    I'm def. digging the highlighter yellow as well, (my new Jedi will be that color, although it might be a tough color to retail). Raw will be tough as we are having them ED Black treated at at the factory for anti-corrosion resistance. We have had a ton of requests for the blue that we have done in the past, so that's a definite!

    Matte black with dark gray or ghost black panel/ lettering. Dark gray with dark red panel/ lettering. Maybe a dark red with cream panel/ letting. The blue you had a couple of years ago looks really sweet. I almost bought a blue one the someone on here was selling, it looked really good.

    We will DEF. bring the Canfield Sparkle Blue back as it has been HIGHLY requested. As far as stickers, we ALL really love the current ones and will continue with them on the new bike.

    As we draw closer, I will have much more info for you... thanks for ALL the feedback!

    You mean this one? Pretty close to the highlighter yellow I requested. I love my Xar.



    As for STI wheels, they are a straight up gold color, never bronze.

    I love how this thread has turned into Porsche and Subaru pictures. My two favorites! How about a WRB nimble?

    Highlighter yellow or highlighter blue. I think new graphics should be an option. My Yelli could use some company...

    Highlighter yellow is a sick color for a bike with some black wheels and a fork on there. I'm also digging the raw finish of a steel frame.
    I'm eager to see some drawings of the new frame. I really hope there is ISCG tabs for a possible hammerschmidt setup. It would also open up a world of opportunity to be able to mount a proper chainguide without a crappy BB mount. The clearances would be super tight, but I would gladly exchange a few mm of chainstay for the pleasure of tabs.

    What is the ETA for any possible prototypes that Canfield will get their hands on?

    This thread needs some teaser pics!

    You right about the Helmet that is the one.

    You right about the flat out gold but I see so many of the wagon style STI's with this color wheel and look exactly like the gold ones you posted that I figured it was a factory option. People in Colorado sure do love there supped up Subys

    So is the 2013 N9 the frame that Canfield mentioned previously on here that will be similar to the Yelli features but in cromoly? Or are you guys debuting another new frame next year altogether?

    To help visualize pillar box red, here's a Chromag Surface sprayed custom in this color. Looks wonderful!

    Any word on tire clearance on the new N9, enough room for a 2.4?

    2.4 are no problem-
    All tires are a bit different- and we are in the derailleur space being this short- But small amount of trimming to the derailleur and you should have no problems.
    Again, all tires run a bit different- but my Racing Ralph's were fine.
    Plus, you can slide back the drops up to 16.9" for more clearance for larger tires. Or run a 1x like the XX1 or our Microdrive hub.

    Highlighter yellow would look awesome flying down the trail but a matte gunmetal gray with black logo and red accents would look fast just sitting still. I'm debating trying to find a used N9 to build up now so I have something to ride through the winter or waiting until the new releases drop in the spring.

    Thank you guys for ALL being SO patient!! We are waiting for our Canfield Sparkle Blue production sample to arrive. As soon as it does, I'll get you all the goods on the new frame. I can say that we are VERY happy with whats coming and it hit all of the objectives we were trying achieve with the new Nimble 9.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Looking forward to the news. I'm zeroing in on a Yelli but I'll hold out to see what's in store for the N9.

    2013 is sounding good for the N9, Ive been holding out for a tapered head tube and midnight blue frame. A 30.9 seat tube is a plus for the option of a dropper post, can't wait for your guys work to come together, good luck!

    ^^COOKIE!!^^

    How about a nice mat black like your DJ bike?

    Lower stand over...check

    44 HT...check

    Question: Are your dropouts compatible with Paragon parts? I would like to add a 142x12 Shimano axle and post mount hardware if possible.

    I bought the last Yelli Screamy xl in purple unsure as to whether to build it from my current N9 or wait to see the new N9. I think I'll wait and see what develops here.

    Cookie, like the rest of us, is patiently waiting for the release of the much anticipated N9 v2.0. In the meantime sit back relax and watch some Sesame Street.

    PLEASE, PLEASE Have a Flat Black or some Flat Black Harley Davidson Color. I want all the silver/chrome on my bike to POP!

    I am really getting excited for this new N9! I only hope that it'll have a stronger/burlier headtube gusset. I know that it'll have a much fatter headtube but i'm just sayin....

    Vin, Sean and Lance, I want a flat black, grey color PUHLEASE!!

    PS anyone wants to buy my Yelli in May? It is lightly used and not abused:P

    Oh and if I can throw in one thing add a second bottle holder, only one and a hardtail is a bit annoying when trying to do the pack less ride.

    Also PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT get rid of the way the seat stays wrap the seattube. Looks wise that is my favorite part of the bike.
