2014 Canfield Nimble 9 29er hardtail frame
Charlie says... This is the new Nimble 9... and it looks lovely. Improved standover over the original, and they also added extra nimbleness to en-nimble it even more.
Pricing: the dollar:quid exchange rates shift about, but what I do here is I make sure that my Uk price is within a smidge or better than the price you would pay if you got one sent over from Utah. We are pretty good at dealing with the VAT, import duty and handling fees (so you dont need to deal with those awkward sods), and you get a UK based dealer who will look after you. If you think my price is not right, call me and ask to check it.
There are a shed load of size and colour variations here... give us a call or email and we will let you know what's here, what we can get here within two/three weeks, and what will be a longer wait. The stock levels here online are updated regularly, but there wont always be 100% accurate.
Wow, now this is what we have missed in the 29er world. You see myself and "Crashy" (the former shop human) really miss our old Santa Cruz Chameleons with their groovy geometry that gives you the balls to ride down anything - shame the wheels are too small. The clever Canfield clan have taken hardcore hardtail 26" philospophy and appllied it to the 29er format. Say "hell yeah" to gnarly chutes and big smiles. What's more it addresses the "awkward to wheelie" 29er thing, by tucking the wheel right up against the BB via some clever tube work. Enjoy... I know I am... demo bike is on the cards .
The Canfield Brothers say....
Taking what we have learned building 29er frames, the evolution continues with the new Nimble 9. We loved with our aluminum version and used it to help develop a new 4130 Chromo version. We had a few goals in mind with this new bike. We wanted to offer a 29er hardtail that not only looked sexy but had our formula for “ideal” geo. The slackest head angle, shortest chainstays and the widest tire clearance, all while being front derailleur compatible. You have the option of running fully gearing or SS right out of the box. The New N9 features adjustable chainstays to go down to a even shorter 16.25”. Combine that with 44mm headtube and aggressive angles, you have a bike that begs to be ridden faster! The evolution of FUN continues with the Nimble 9.
