Press Release: Canfield Bikes

Canfield Bikes, high-end boutique mountain bike manufacturer, today introduces an all-new Frost colorway of its iconic steel hardtail, the Nimble 9. The brand is also opening up pre-orders for the immensely popular N9 with an expected late October delivery (expedited air shipping available for a limited time). The last production run quickly sold out on pre-order, well ahead of delivery.

“Demand for the N9 has been through the roof and shows no signs of slowing,” says Lance Canfield, owner and designer.

Now in its 5th generation, the Canfield Nimble 9 was perhaps the first steel hardtail to make fun its top priority back in 2010. While things have gotten longer, lower and slacker, the spirit remains the same.

Built around aggressive all-mountain geometry and a 150mm fork, the N9 strikes the sweet spot between confident descending and zippy, playful handling, yet remains undeterred by steep climbs standing between it and gravity-fed redemption.

A 66-degree head-angle dares you to drop in and short chainstays (adjustable down to 16.33-inches/415mm via sliding dropouts) make sure the Nimble 9 lives up to its name.

“We love our full suspension bikes,” says Lance. “But there is something so simple and fun about a steel hardtail with dialed geo. The N9 just wants to jump and play and encourages you to take lines that you never thought you would on a hardtail.”

Combining the revered ride quality of 4130 chromoly steel with vertically compliant, radial-bent seat-stays, the N9 challenges preconceptions of mountain bikes with rigid rear-ends. The Nimble 9 will accommodate 29-inch or 27.5-plus wheels.
