2014 Nimble 9 - Shipping early May, including LE Chromes!

Canfield Brothers 2014 Nimble 9.jpg

We've made a few changes to the 2014's:
• 142x12mm dropouts, Rock Shox Maxle included
• 27.2 Seatpost
• LE Chrome, Lime, Canfield Blue and Gloss Black

(The 27.2 seatpost change alleviated the need for our factory to shim the seatpost as we did on the 2013's.)

Features:
• 4130 chromoly steel
• 68 degree head angle (120mm fork)
• Adjustable 16.25“ – 16.9” chainstays
• Low toptube for increased stand over height
• Custom sliding rear dropouts
• Hydroformed toptube
• ED Black treated for superior anti-corrosion resistance, (*Painted models only)
• Removable direct mount front derailleur block
• Two water bottle bosses

2013 Nimble 9 owners looking to upgrade their dropouts to 142x12, we will have upgrade kits available for $150, including a Rock Shox Maxle.

For more information, please see our webstore:

I thought there were no longer going to be cable guides on the down tube and chain stay.
The image is a 2013 with a dropout mock up. The routing has been changed for the 2014's and as always, I will post actual production images once the frames are in stock.

Care to elaborate on why the seat tube size has changed this year??

Every discussion about the new N9 goes straight to this line of questioning.


I spoke with my bike shop today. They are gonna call and pre order one for me tomorrow.


Thanks.

Did they run out of the nuclear waste that allowed the paint to glow? I am sure China has plenty to go around!! :cool::p:eekster:

Answer to my last question? Hook a obsolete N9 owner up!!
Our frames are made in Taiwan, NOT CHINA.

2013 owners looking to upgrade their bike, we have produced a limited amount of 142x12 dropout kits. They are available through our webstore and will start shipping the beginning of next month.

What has changed from the 2013 to the 2014 frames? If I could, I would rather find a 2013 frame since I have a plethora of 30.9 dropper posts that I would like to use. But also I have a 142 wheelset, so why wouldn't I go with a 2013 frame that has the 30.9 post and then just buy the 142 dropouts?

And shipping in 4 weeks means from the factory? Or from Bellingham to me??

And I second the "why 27.2 seatpost" questions...
Our 2014's will be hitting our office the middle of next month. As always, we will have orders shipped out within a few days.

We moved to a 27.2 post to alleviate the need for the seatpost shim we had to use on the 2013's. When we designed the 2013, there were no droppers available in 27.2. Now the KS LEV, KS Supernatural, Thomson Dropper and X-Fusion Hilo are all available in 27.2.
