that my 2nd generation N9 is holding up really well. She's pretty much taken everything that i could throw at her and then some. I've had this frame for over a year now. So, to date this has been a reliable bike from shredding to bikepacking or just a casual spin around the park. Canfield and crew has always taken good care of me and their loyal customers. Hoping that they will continue to do that in the future.
