    Game changer Nimble 9

    It was a big surprise ... I was shopping around for a fork and came across a used frame/fork deal. Quick research on the N9 seemed promising so I pulled the trigger on a used XL Nimble 9 ... 2015 I believe


    WOW!


    I transplanted most of the components from my 2010 FS Brain Stumpjumper ... I'm blown away how much fun this bike is.

    It has reinvented my local central Texas signletrack trails, this bike flows through turns, blows through rock gardens and is even surprisingly fun to mash pavement on a 10mile "trail commute"

    Good job and thanks Canfield Bros. You got a follower !!!

    200 miles of fun - and counting:

    Welcome aboard... the Bike will get more fun as you learn to just let it eat the rocks .... and looks like your set up for a internal dropper so yes... 2015/2016. The 2017 is lower in stature and boosted..

    The dropper routing was indeed my year guide, even the seller stated 2015 ... but it turns out however (separate thread) that the routing was drilled out aftermarket.

    Oh well, going to ride the hell out of it and pretend the EPO doesn't exist

    Beautiful bike, man!

    You could check out the following link and grab some matching stickers for that fork: (no affiliation, I promise!)

    Thats the biggest "problem" with Canfield bikes is that once you have ridden one everything else just feels LAME! I own 3 of them now. Waiting for the carbon riot to come out so I can shuck some weight but still have a ripper of a bike. The nimble 9 Gen 1 was the bike that turned me onto Canfield. Get ready for a long time of Uber fun riding.
