    Nimble 9 Boost – Now In Stock!-canfield-brothers-nimble-9-boost-build.jpg

    We don't believe full suspension bikes should get to have all the fun, that's why we crafted a 4130 chromoly 29er hardtail that's ready to get rowdy. The N9 combines the revered ride quality of a steel frame with our signature slack and low Canfield 29er all-mountain geo. Fresh for 2017, the N9 receives Boost 148 rear hub spacing, reach is stretched by more than an inch on all sizes for a roomier cockpit and seat tubes are shortened for increased maneuverability when you drop the saddle. Whether you’re a masochist building a singlespeed or you just want keep it real with an aggressive all-mountain steel hardtail, the N9 is ready to roll.

    Nimble 9 Boost Features:
    ● 29″ All Mountain
    ● 650b+ compatibile – Up to 35i rim/2.8 tire
    ● 4130 chromoly steel
    ● New - Increased reach and shorter seat tube
    ● 66.5° head angle with a 140mm fork
    ● Custom sliding 148mm x 12mm rear dropouts, axle included
    ● Adjustable 16.25“ – 16.9” chainstays
    ● Singlespeed-able
    ● Stealth cable routing
    ● Sparkle metallic painted finish
    ● ED Black treated for superior anti-corrosion resistance
    ● Removable direct mount front derailleur block
    ● Two water bottle bosses

    Any chance a 29 x 3 tire on a 36mm internal width rim will fit in the frame?

    It will ride very similar to the EPO in terms of geo. Snappy rear with a slightly longer front center that will allow you to stretch out more on the climbs. The geo is now very close between these bikes.

    THANK YOU for the longer front and shorter seat tube!! Those 2 things have kept me from buying a new N9 a couple times in the past.

    How wide of a 29" rim and tire will fit in the rear now?

    Clearance is about the same as a 2016 as we pushed that frame pretty hard to allow up to a 27.5+ 2.8 with a 35i rim. We haven't tested many tires on the 29+ side of things, but we design around a 29" - 2.5".

    Cranks are back in stock as well. Check them out on the webstore.

    It's been a pretty fun month around here with the release of CBF, Crampon Mountain's, N9 Boost and finally getting cranks back in stock!

    How wide of a rim can you go with, combined with say a 2.5 DHF, 2.4 Ardent, or 2.35 Ikon? Would an i35 clear?

    Thanks -- is the stack measurement of 666mm for the L N9Boost correct, is it realy 66mm taller than L EPO? BB drop, fork length seem to be the same; head angle is 0.3 deg diff and HT length 2mm. Thanks, Pat

    I've been hoping you guys would update the geometry for a while. Most important item now is, can you get it with 142x12 dropouts?

    So has anyone tried a 40mm rim such as the scraper with a 2.8 tyre

    Hi I see the same question I answered before has been asked a couple more times but not answered. It's to so with the rim width and plus sized tyres. Most plus sized 2.8" tyres are made to be at their optimum when fitted to a 40 or 45 mm rim. I am guessing they don't fit as above says 35mm rim. Would be nice to have some clarification, or to know if it has been tried. Thanks.

    We want to confirm that we are recommending 35i rims, (35mm internal, not external). We feel 35i rims compliment 2.8's very well and our experience when testing the wider Scraper rim was that 2.8's were feeling very square.

    In terms of 27.5+ compatibility with our 29er frames, we recommend up to this this set up, (35i and 2.8"). Running wider rims can flare the tire out more, decreasing clearances and possibly causing rub issues if you have a wobble in your wheel or enough flex while cornering.

    Hope that's helps with clarification.

    EDIT - Found the answer to my own question. Thought I remembered seeing the actual N9 clearance posted before -

    Assuming clearance is the same as the previous N9.

    You can find this and any other build spec you need our website. Hit up the product page, then click on the "build specs" tab:
    Canfield Brothers Nimble 9 - Aggressive steel All-Mountain 29er

    To answer you question though, the N9 uses a 44mm upper and lower cup.

    Cheers!

    Question for either of the Canfield Bros.....Can you take a pic of the chinline with the chain in the middle of the cassette with a Boost crankset and then with a normal 51mm chainline crankset?
    Curious what your thoughts are on the new Boost chainline/cranks being pushed? Personally I'm running an old school XT crank withn51mm chainline on a 73mm BB, 2x10 with a 150x12 rear on my current bike and have found chainline about optimal, was runnning an SS/Trials hub with 6 cogs before this to get the same chainline and stronger wheel.
    Also curious what your thoughts are on running a 150x12 rear on the Boost spacing frame? I assume the 148x12 drop outs follow the current spec which puts 3mm to go into a slot for fitment, so this probably would not be able to work.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    Thanks! I new it was 44mm, what I really should have asked the Chris King #. I figured it out Inset 7 from CK.

    27.5+ wheels came in, 1694g for the set 38mm wide ex. LB 28hole with Project 321 boost hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes with alloy nips. That's with tape and valves installed.

    Wow! Great looking wheelset! Those chupas won't add too much weight to them either! Can't wait to see the full build.

    Haven't seen sizing discussions for the new frame with extended reach. Anyone decide to not upsize now that the reach is an extra inch longer? I'm 5'10 and ride a large Nomad (437mm reach). Thinking a Medium Nimble would work?
