Canfield Bikes Brings Chrome Nimble 9 Steel Hardtail Back For 2021 With Full Versions
Canfield Nimble 9 – Chrome
PRESS RELEASE: Canfield
Canfield Bikes announces that the 5th generation of its iconic steel hardtail, the Nimble 9, will be available in chrome for 2021 with open pre-orders immediately for Black Friday / Cyber ââMonday pricing.
The N9 will also be offered in the popular Static Black Metallic and Cherry Cola Red Metallic. Owner Lance Canfield said: “We are delighted to bring the Nimble 9 back in chrome once again. Many of you have asked about it over the past year, and we have listened.”

For the first time in the brand’s history, the model will also be available as a complete bike with several frame and wheel options. The complete Nimble 9 will feature a SRAM Eagle Lunar GX drivetrain, Spank and SDG cockpit, and a choice of Magura or TRP brakes. Wheel options include the all-new Canfield Special Blend wheels as well as premium carbon upgrades from the Atomik Carbon and RideFast races.
âOur goal with complete versions is to offer the best mix of performance and value possible, to assemble bikes that we would use without any ‘take-off’ parts at a realistic price,â Canfield explains. “Our philosophy is to specify premium parts where it counts and to create value on components that don’t interfere with the ride.”
Handcrafted in small batches, the Nimble 9 is an all-terrain steel hardtail that is designed to be noisy and designed to accommodate 29-inch, 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels with tires up to 2, 8 inches and thanks to sliding legs, is single speed ready. It combines the ride quality of 4130 chromoly steel with radially curved, vertical conforming seatstays and aggressive all-mountain geometry.

The 5th generation of the N9, which debuted last year, sees refreshed geometry and a larger size, adding more than an inch to the reach of all sizes. Plus, all sizes see a shorter seat tube to better accommodate today’s longer seatposts and provide more maneuverability as you drop the saddle and let gravity take over. The base panels have also been redesigned for more rigidity and durability.
Pre-orders are open now direct through Canfield with early Black Friday / Cyber ââMonday pricing valid through November 30, 2020.
