SOLD! Medium 2021 Nimble 9 "Chrome" plus Manitou Mattoc Pro 140mm

I built the Nimble 9 up a few weeks ago, had planned to use it as a pump and jump bike, but even with a smaller size it's still too big for pump track use, so I'm building a dedicated dirt jumper.

I am selling the frame, headset, and fork as a package.

The frame is like new, size medium, in chrome. The frame has been tretaed with frame saver.

The headset is a Cane Creek 40.

The Fork is a 2020 Mattoc Pro 29/27+ 44 mm offset currently set at 140mm. I'm a big Manitu fan, I run a Mattoc on my Shred and a Mezzer on Tilt. The fork can be reduced internally and internally down to 100mm, it has a Dorado Air Spring and IRT..

Frame and headset were $899 + $80, Fork was $800, I'll let the package go for $1400, buyer pays shipping and PayPal fess.

No trades, just selling outright to pay for the DJ build.

I'll post some better pics later, but here's the frame during the build

Make it an XL and you have yourself a deal!
I’m in a similar situation.

We have our first ever local pump track being built and I’m trying to decide on a bike. I was going to jump right into a 26” DJ build but am also considering going hardcore and starting with 20”.

I was big into BMX racing in the 80’s but unsure how much of my old skills are still available for a 20”! I still have my 20” and 24” bikes from those days so I have options.

My plan is to wait and see what the place is like and maybe play around with what I have to judge what I like best. I do have a feeling I may end up on a 26” DJ though and would be interested in following your build process and experience.

I'm interested in the fork if you decide to separate.
Okay, so I didn't want to separate the frame and fork package, but if you two can get together and figure it out I'd be happy to separate parts :rolleyes:

If you guys can send a PM and we'll work on it ...

It is a very nice frame, Canfield is back and better than ever, if I needed a single speed for regular trail riding them I'd be riding a Nimble 9, but I have two FS bikes and what I want is a DJ, so that's what I have coming.

I like the chrome so much that I'm thinking of getting my NS Surge chromed :)

Way, way, long ago, I rode BMX and my bikes of choice were all Redlines, I had 1978 Redline with the round tubes chainstays which I traded for a 1976 Redline with the square tubed rear chainstays.

The 78' chrome was very bight and shiny, but the 76' had a deeper luster almost like a brushed stainless. Maybe I'll go for the brushed look (y)

How much for just the frame?
It was $1000 plus shipping, I'd sell it for $800 plus shipping.
Okay, got the bike stripped, frame and fork are ready to sell.

You may wanna change your ad. Plenty of N9 frames in stock from what I can see.
