    Good for you. I'll keep riding my diSSent until there's a SS dropout available, then I'll think about getting a new frame.

    Every color option shown but the matte black...

    I'd love to see a picture (I know matte black isnt hard to imagine) still would like a picture as it would be the color I'd go with. I'm sure you guys are slammed with preorders but I'd sure appreciate it

I'm sure Canfield doesn't care about me and my wants and could care even less if I buy one of their frames. There's probably plenty of people waiting in line for one already. I'm nobody special, but it's my money so if I don't get what I want in a product I'm not spending my cash.
    You sound like a window shopper with no monies.

    Hey!
    I'm the window shopper with no monies

    If I had the cash to spare, I'd probably get one and run it SS.

    Now I'm just waiting to see other people's builds.
    Is anyone planning to try it rigid?

    I might eventually put a stiffee on mine. However, after riding New England trails for the past year on a double-steel-stiffee, my hands and shoulders have sent complaints to the brain-dept and I'm going with a front squish. Reba 100mm with a lock-out is the plan.

    The frames are still in customs. As soon as they arrive I will shoot all the colors and post them up for you as promised!

    With all the replies over the last few days in regards to SS dropouts, I figured I'd chime in on the topic. When we went into production on the new N9, we spoke about all the different dropout options we could build for this bike. The issue really is, as we designed a fully custom dropout system for this bike, the dropouts are REALLY expensive. We looked at what we invested in SS dropouts for the original N9, compared to the few that we sold and unfortunately we could not justify doing additional dropout options at this point. We are a small rider owned company that can not just absorb the cost of things like this and write them off. We are four people that live, breath, sweat and eat to give our customers the best products we possibly can.

    As far as the comment from Nubster - I'm sure Canfield doesn't care about me and my wants and could care even less if I buy one of their frames. I start and end everyday reading every post on this forum, to make sure we are always in the loop with our customer base and address any issues when needed. We care a great deal about our current and potential customers and I would hope our reputation shows that. The end of the day we know not every one of our products can meet the needs of 100% of our customers and Im sorry if your feel that were excluded on the new Nimble 9.

    How bout everyone that pre-ordered a frame gets one of those sharp seat post clamps included. Damn customs! there're no drugs or fire arms in the containers, just frames.

    I missed the previous post were you said they were at customs. I went ahead and preordered a matte black. Cant wait to get some rides in.

    Now I just have to scrounge for a tapered carbon fork.

    I'll be running it rigid SS. I currently have a Salsa Cromoto Grande Maxle that I hope to be upgrading next month to a tapered carbon 15TA.

    Folks regarding SS dropouts, I'm running a Yelli Screamy SS using a Surly Singulator (sprung tensioner that sits in the derailleur hanger). It works fine and I even think a little variable spring tension in the cadence cycle is no bad thing.

    I wouldn't let drop out availability stop me buying an N9 for SS. (Shipping and taxes to the UK would stop me but that's a different issue).

    (I write this as someone who's had 3 bikes with EBBs. I resisted the idea of a hanging tensioner, but really when you're riding it's no biggie at all).

    The N9 has sliding dropouts - which in my mind equals 1 of 2 things:

    1. The ability to alter wheelbase for geared riders OR
    2. The ability to run SS without tensioners, etc.

    The second makes me call it a fully functional single speed frame, which is exactly what I need. There was just one guy who was bent out of shape that the sliding dropouts are designed with a derailleur hanger. And I guess because it has a derailleur hanger, it doesn't fully qualify as a single speed frame. This little piece of additional threaded metal is apparently against UCI Single-Speed category rules and is cause for an ass-kicking at hipster fixie parties.

    Not cool at all.

    You do realize that all of our frames are stuck in customs, right?

    I get what you're saying, but I wouldn't let it get in the way of the great ride quality and geometry. I've been riding my one-speed N9, with the derailleur hanger-equipped slider, for almost 2 years. hasn't bothered me one bit. $750 is a lot of money, but for a small bike company with innovative geometry and some unusual features, I think it's worth it.

    The new frame costs more due to a few things: hydroforming tubes costs more than using off-the-shelf round tubes, speccing custom sliders instead of off-the-shelf Paragon copies costs a lot more, and finally, production costs tend to increase over time.

    I'm not telling anyone to buy something they don't want. If you are set on not buying this frame 'cause it's not 100% what you want, I can respect that. It's just that, in my opinion, these guys produce such a great riding frame that you might want to be a bit more flexible.

    If I got the frame I'm sure it wouldn't really bother me either. Like I said, it's just me being nitpicky over an aesthetics issue. But for a frame that will cost me over $800 I think I have the right to be a little critical. If I could sell my John Henry, I'd probably get the frame despite my issues with it. For now I have to decide whether to spend $569 on a new replacement diSSent frame or pony up the $805 for the N9.

    Yeah, call me a ranting indecisive dumbass. Even though it bugs me to no end there's not a SS dropout option, the frame is just to damn sexy to not want.

    I hate the look of tensioners and the EBBs that i can get for the Yelli were waaayyy too much money. Solution - Voila!
