Should be here after the first of the year. SS only version sounds like next summer.

Anyone have any idea why the Brothers Canfield went with the bent "dog poo on the top tube" seat stays instead of a typical mitered joint at the SS/TT/ST junction? Was it motivated by aesthetics by some theoretical benefit?

Disclosure: dog poo on the top tube is adapted from another forum member's spot-on analogy. It's all I can think of now when I see the junction.

I thought it was pretty cool looking. Now I will think dog poo every time I look at it.

I still want one though.

You should see how cool it is in real life. It comes to a point at the top- Not a wrap around poo blob. It is for looks- But why would we do anything like the rest of the industry. Canfield Brothers is all about innovation and unique sh$t.

We are going to do a SS only frame without your Poo-poo blob in the future.

This needs to be settled with more Nimble 9 porn (More PICS). Especially since the change in the downtube mentioned in the Yelli thread!

I actually like the poo blob.
There's a word for that...

Can't wait to see one. More specifically I can't wait to see one in my basement hanging next my Karate Monkey. A dedicated SS version is coming? With track dropouts?

Very appealing bike.....now, they only need an XL with a 25"+ ETT. Maybe the second run............
