    Great catch guys, the standover numbers I posted are all WAY off! The standovers will be pretty close on all the sizes and I just uploaded the chart with the correct standovers.

    Here's a drawing of all the sizes for comparision:

    This is a pound heavier and 100 bucks more than the previous edition? Please explain the drastic design change.

    About 10% of our production run.

    It is what it is times and are rough nowadays, but the Honzo shares near identical geometry to the nimble 9 and is $200 cheaper. I don't see what the big deal is.

    I was just breaking your balls! Personally I agree with you, the specs on the 2 bikes seem the same and it seems like the Canfields were playing a bit of catchup with the tapered headtube. BUt gotta give them credit for the style points that go with a hydroformed STEEL top tube. I'm sure it exists elsewhere but I haven't seen it. I'm a bit of a newb to MTB but I know back in college my roommate had a Kona and it was a great bike but I get the feeling that Kona is a bit larger of a company with greater buying power and bigger marketing budget than the canfield bros. It's natural that the smaller company needs to charge a bit more. Besides, a lot more frame color options with the Bros!

    We are planning a photo shoot next week with Sean on a few of our local trails. Hoping to get a few static full build shots as well as a few riding shots that we'll be using for the new website.

    Any possibility of a 12x142 dropout option?
    Thanks!

    I'm surprised at people complaining about $750 for a frame in this day and age. But if it helps you, we have a forum member here who a lot of people buy parts from. He happens to be a canfield dealer and might be able to help you out a little. PM me if you want to know. Out of respect for canfield I'm not going to post it here.

    The 142x12 option is certainly something that we have spoke about in great lengths. However, the custom dropouts we are using on our new Nimble are SUPER expensive. For us to do an aftermarket 142 option, between the 2 dropouts and axle, we would have to sell them for over $100. This could be something we entertain down the road, but at this time it just didn't seem to be cost effective.

    Can't wait for them to show up! I think I my finally retire my purple yelli for a chrome n9. I'll have to check if my boss preordered our three frames for the guys at the shop

    I'd pay $100 for 142.

    Just sayin...

    And...if you can give me some semblance of confidence that 142s will be available down the road, the Nimble 9 just moved to the top of my list.

    I was thinking the same exact thing except I would order my N9 today if I knew 142x12 would be possible. $100.00 sounds good to me.

    We COMPLETELY understand... HOWEVER, we have to meet order mins before we can pull this off.

    I can see where geared, AM type riders might want 142x12.
    Personally, my 1speed Chris King with Fun Bolts offers a super stiff rear axle on my N9.

    I've always had great luck with running Fun Bolts, they are super solid!

    This frame looks really beautiful and I'm thinking I could change my Yelli for a new N9.
    Which size is the blue frame pictured here and in the Canfield's webpage?
    How much is the clearance for rear tire with dropouts slided all the way forward?
