    Average steerer length on new N9

    I just purchased a new Nimble 9 frame. Got the last purple one and it is sitting in the local post office right now, waiting for me to pick it up tomorrow! Plan to set it up 27.5+ and this is going to be a real adventure. I have ridden nothing but rigid SS for about the last 13 years.

    I already have a pretty good idea what I am going to run for wheels and components. One thing I have not had to worry about in a long time, the price of new suspension forks. Gads! I have been looking online and have found plenty of new take-offs for a significant discount. Of course, there is the issue of the steerer tubes being already cut. I am 5'6" and compared the numbers from Canfield's website against the numbers from the last two frames I have ridden. Based on this information, I selected a medium frame. For all you N9 owners, what would be the minimum steerer length you would be comfortable with? Appreciate any advice or opinions.

    Don't own a nimble, so can't help with direct measurement, but if you know what headset and stem you plan to run, you should be able to measure your head tube length, and find the published stack heights for the headset and stem. Then add in however many spacers you plan to run.
