Canfield Bikes Unveil Longest Slacker 2020 Nimble 9 Hardtail
Today we unveiled the 5th generation of our steel hardtail, the Nimble 9.
For 2020, the Nimble 9 sees refreshed geometry in all sizes as well as an all-new two-tone pinstripe paintwork in five retro-inspired color combinations.
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 larger wheels with tires up to 2.8 inches. It combines the ride quality of 4130 chromoly steel with radially bent, vertically conforming chainstays and updated aggressive all-mountain geometry.
We’ve redefined the way the 29-inch rides since the launch of the Yelli Screamy (the first production 29-inch with chainstays below 17 inches) in 2011, and the latest N9 is no exception. A loose 66-degree head angle keeps things confident as you venture out where no hardtail should, and short chainstays (adjustable up to 16.4 inches via sliding dropouts) ensure the Nimble 9 lives up to its name. We’ve also updated the size, which adds over an inch of reach to every size from the previous generation.
Plus, all sizes see a shorter seat tube to better accommodate today’s longer seatposts and provide more handling as you drop the saddle and let gravity take over. The yellows of the chainstays have also been redesigned for more rigidity and durability.
âThe Nimble 9 is such a fun and versatile bike,â said Lance Canfield, owner and designer. Whether you build it as a single-speed bike, a bikepacking platform, or just a fun, all-terrain hardtail, this bike brings the party to the trail.
Available in Mantis Green, Night Sky Blue, Mud Brown, Race Car Red, and RAD Pink in S, M, L, and XL, the 2020 Nimble 9 will retail for $ 799.99 and is available now for pre-order for Black Friday. . $ 599.99 at CanfieldBikes.com. Frame, fork and headset assemblies are also available.
