    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?
    The production sample we received is a large. I'll slide our dropouts all the way in and try to grab a pic or two later this week.

    Personally, my 1speed Chris King with Fun Bolts offers a super stiff rear axle on my N9.

    Agreed fun bolts with SS or geared (1x9) was pretty stiff rear axle for me...142x12 IMHO is a non-issue.

    A Little Teaser

    Here's a quick teaser... I'll get her in the studio tomorrow night and get some good images to post up. With the narrow Kenda 2.2 Small Blocks, there is plenty of tire clearance with the stays pushed all the way forward... 16.25"!

    Wow for sure! For a 29er it looks like a sharp handling 26er. Hot!

    You guys gotta get some dirt demos going on in Bellingham!

    A few more images of the NEW Nimble 9 Built. I included a chainstay image to show clearance in the shortest position. We have a set of Maxxis Ardent 2.4's on order and will post a comparison image as soon as we have them. We have also had a ton of questions as if a Gnard would fit... however, we pushed the limits as far as we could when designing the chainstays on this bike to be a short as possible, have as much tire clearance as possible AND still have it front derailleur compatible. Widening the stays to fit a Gnard 3.0 would have compromised our original design aspirations.

    One more from Sean's first ride out yesterday:
    The NEW Canfield Brothers Nimble 9-857433_542573362443000_1070973480_o.jpg
    We will post a full ride report once we have a little more time on the bike. Sean did say how stoked he was and said, "The new frame corners even harder with 16.25" chain stays. This bike changes direction instantly!" Sean always thought that the old Nimble wheelied well before, the even shorter stays were very noticeable and made the new frame that much more fun to ride.

    Looks great. If possible could we have the stack measurement? First frame up build and I'm agonizing over every detail while I wait for May. Thanks.

    New frame is great!

    any idea how long you will keep selling the post mount and SS-only dropouts for the OG N9? Its on my "to-do" list, but haven't gotten down to it

    We still have a few in stock. I was just looking at them over the weekend when we were shooting all the service parts for the new site. Just let us know when you are ready!

    I love my 2012 Nimble 9, set up as a singlespeed it's great for tearing up east coast singletrack. The 2012 frames a little porky for a hardtail, but you usually don't notice it in the woods. The new Nimble 9 has some cool features, I'm not entirely a weight weenie, but at 6.5 lbs the frame seems too heavy for XC use.

    Finally we're seeing some standover love given to the XL frames! I'm in the process of choosing my 1st 29er HT and I'm always amazed and the high standover for the XL's.
    Until now. Thanks !
    Oh, and when someone gets an XL built up PLEEEASE post it here !

    I can't wait! Time to start figuring out how to unload my current nimble.

    As a single speeder, I like the look of the new frame. Besides having a removeable front derailer mount, the rear caliper position will make the bike even cleaner.

    Any full pictures of the new Nimble with the 2.4 Ardents? The pictures with those little tires are just wrong...

    I'm wondering who will be the first to [try to?] cram a Knard in the back of a N9...

    My gen 1 N9 has beaucoup room in the back, sliders slammed, Ardent 2.4 on narrow rims. Gen 2 seemingly has more...

    FULL pictures...as in entire bike.

    Any more updates on rear rotor fitment for the new 9? Would like to run a 180 rotor with new XT calipers.

    Thanks!

    I have a couple of questions on the N9.2; sorry if any of those has already been answered in the thread:

    1) Does it support 8" rear rotors?
    2) Why is the fork length on the geo chart 480mm for a 100mm Fox F29, which as far as I know has 500mm (are measurments incl 20% sag)?
    3) What is actually the complete frame weigth on an M size (including bolts and drop outs)? The estimate of 6.5 lbs was on an L, I guess.

    I'd appreciate anyone's help.
    ...and please do the 142x12!

    Trailmosher - We designed the post mount with enough clearance to run a 180mm. Lance thinks a 200mm will fit, I'll have to test fit one for you.

    The A to C of a Fox F29 100, is 500.8mm which is what we are basing our geo of off. (Our Geo chart is updated.)

    The frames are back from their ED black treatment and are going to paint this week. I will have actual weights shortly as soon as they are back. We are expecting them to come in slightly over our estimates from the tweaks we have made from our sample. I will have a little more on this as soon as possible.

    Cheers

    Is that a sagged a-c?

    Because I also thought that a unsagged f29 at 100mm was around 500mm.
