    Glad you were able to set aside the issues you initially had with the frame. I think you're gonna really enjoy it.
    Congrats!

    I still think they should make a SS drop out...lol...especially since it seems like this is going to be a much more popular SS frame than they might have been expecting. The frame was just way too awesome looking and the geometry really has me excited to ride...I couldn't pass it up just because of some little stupid hangup I was having.

    To add to the brake issues, apparently BB7s won't fit AT ALL. Both the cable retention bolt and the outboard pad adj knob hit the frame. Still need another inch of swing to get the lower CPS bolt in. Fairly frustrating. At least a solution is in the works. Also helps that this is the off season in Florida. Hot, humid, trails flooded, loaded with mosquitoes and getting overgrown. Jealous of those who get to ride theirs.

    First of all, not a damn thing wrong with BB7's. Second, maybe that's what some of have on hand or all we can afford at the moment after dropping a wad of cash on a new frame. Then there's the idea that some people like to keep their bikes simple. Kinda goes along the ideas of single speeding it for a lot of folks.

    Anyways, looks like a rear brake upgrade or no riding for 4-5weeks >

    The NEW Canfield Brothers Nimble 9

    I really don't get the move to put brake mounts inside the rear triangle (chain stay mount) vs. the traditional seat stay mounts. Seems like it just causes fit / clearance issues. And I am not just piling on.... I made similar comments when Niner moved their brake mounts on the SIR9.

    Is there some advantage to chain stay mounts? I might guess it allows for thinner/lighter seat stays, but that should make no difference on a frame like the N9 where the mount is on the dropout.

    I think it looks better with the brake tucked inside the stays and I guess one could argue it offers a little protection as well, though I don't really read or hear about caliber damage being a problem from crashes or sticks/rocks on the trail. As far as performance advantage, no idea.

    I've read that having the calliper forward of the axle forces the wheel into the floor under braking, rather than it lifting.

    No idea if that holds water scientifically.

    Does an XT calliper fit (with 160mm rotor)? Or a Hope X2?

    Very pretty that green, Nubster.

    It appears both do fit but at least the XT has the issue of not being able to remove the rear wheel without loosening the caliber. But at least they fit.

    And yeah, I'm really diggin' the green. It was a tough choice between colors.

    Just to annoy people.


    Or, ya know, maybe because I like them?

    No riding this bike anyway. Already over budget (no surprise there).

    I like the way it looks, no idea if there is any performance advantage.

    Does this frame fit a 180mm crankset?

    Would it be possible to use a larger rotor with an adapter to push the caliper out a little farther? This is assuming you're using a 160 rotor.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    took 'er out for a 3 mi jaunt and it lives up to its name. 1st thing i did was mash it outta the driveway and she stood right up, love it. wasn't running a guide or tensioner and dropped chain once while using a zee rd, weird. now the hope guide is on and i will hit some intermediate trails first thing in the am. i'll post pics once my finishing parts are here, not ashamed of her but not as blingy as it needs to be. took my rear wheel in to get trued but it was blown out so i took em a new hoop. i got a call thinking it was ready, but nope, i took them a 36h hoop. receipt from online store says 32, but not so much. minor complications, but something a scotch ale wont fix

    Or "preload" it. Same issue with the On-one Inbred frames with BB7s. Owners have resorted to either one, or just switching to hydros.

    Yes, it's a 160. I guess that is possible. I won't have time to play with again until Sunday. May try mocking up a 180 rotor from cardboard or something and see how it lands. Thanks for the idea.
