    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!

    They could call it the Yelli Steely. I'll buy 2.

    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.

    And something like Old Man Chile Grey and one of these greys (Grigorio Telesto or Grigorio Medio).

    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...
