I’m trying something new and moving down to one bike. As such, one of the finest modern hardtails you’ll ever see is available for sale. This is a freshly built 2018 Canfield Nimble 9 steel hardtail, very modern geometry, slack head angle, short adjustable rear, steep seat angle. Canfield Bros. also got the steel dialed on this newest Boost model; it’s much more forgiving than previous versions of the N9. This is a very nicely built rig that can go double-duty as a geared or single-speed bike and you’ll get both setups. It’s an XL frame and has less than 40 miles on it. For sizing, I’m 6’2, 34 cycling inseam and a +2 ape index. Frame: Newest 2018 Boost version of the Canfield Nimble 9 steel frame, size XL, sparkle blue with adjustable drops, threaded BB, 44mm head tube, huge tire clearance. King bottle cage included. Fork: 2018 Fox 36 Performance series, Grip damper, 44 offset, reduced to 140 travel. Does include 160 airshaft. Has Wolftooth bolt-on axle as well as stock axle. Small ding on left stanchion that was professionally sanded and sealed by Rage Cycles. Headset: Cane Creek 40 Wheelset: Ibis 938 wide aluminum wheelset, XD driver, 6-bolt disc, 34mm internal width. Tires: Front Bontrager XR 4 29x2.6; rear Bontrager SE4 29x2.6, both tubeless (love these tires). Cockpit: Renthal Fatbars 35mm clamp, 800 wide. Renthal Apex stem 40mm for 35 clamp. Deity Knuckleduster grips, bling Wolftooth headset spacers. Seating: WTB Silverado saddle, OneUp 170mm internal dropper with Wolftooth lever, Salsa Ziplock clamp Brakes: Magura MT Sport brakeset with Magura 180/180 Storm rotors. Front needs a little bleed to make the lever feel match. Drivetrain: Truvativ Dub crankset 175mm with boots, Dub 30mm threaded BB, XT clipless pedals. Here’s the fun part: I’m currently running an SS setup, 32-tooth Eagle ring with a 20-tooth cog and an Eagle chain. This is accomplished on the XD driver with a Problem Solvers Zinger setup, which is awesome. 18-tooth cog and 30-tooth Wolftooth chainring also included. What’s fun? A full well-used but perfectly functional XO1 Eagle setup is also included, so you can easily swap from SS to geared on one wheel set. You’re getting a dialed fully built modern hardtail that you can buy on your way to the trail. $2,400 cash, complete as outlined above with pedals and bottle cage. Bike will be cleaned and ready to roll; I can take any photos you desire or come take it for a spin in Central Phoenix. Couple notes for posterity: I’m not interested in trades other than a partial of a high-end Boost 29er wheelset. I won’t part the bike. I won’t ship the bike. If you’re outside Phoenix, have a friend come do the transaction or find a bike shop you trust and I’ll drop it off there. Thanks for reading.

Interview: JC Canfield of High Above Talks Hip Packs, Domestic Manufacturing, & Why People Don’t Put Ideas on the Table
Excellent response on the question of entrepreneurship. I don’t even wear hip packs, but I’d support this company on the basis of that alone. The sort of culture Jon mentions has risen to the highest levels, where elected politicians talk shit via tweet but can’t manage to actually DO anything. I think all of us, myself included, need to be more cognizant. Less talking, more doing. Great article, PB.

Lightly used KS LevSI dropper post, takeoff from Ibis Ripmo. No damage, functions perfectly. 31.6x150mm drop. Internal routing. Includes stock thumb lever. Would keep, but new frame takes 30.9. $160 includes fees and shipping in CONUS. Great deal.

Field Test: Cannondale Habit Carbon
Looks like a Canfield Riot. Best-looking C’dale I’ve seen in years.

Super-nice 2018 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 (TB3) frameset, size XL, aluminum version. Purchased new by me a few weeks ago from an authorized local shop. Frame has not been registered. SC bikes run a touch small. I’m 6’2, 34 inseam, +2 ape index. 110mm rear travel, 29 or 27.5+ wheels, threaded BB, mix of internal and external cable routing, tapered headtube, Boost, geo flip chip. Hell, it’s even got a front derailleur mount. Includes Fox DPS Evol shock, Cane Creek headset, rear axle and seat clamp. Price is for listed partS to do your own build. I can include other parts at good prices to get you going if you prefer. Bike has been ridden 35 miles at Hawes and SoMo. Great condition minus some typical paint rub. I ran a more aggro build with a 140 fork and big tires. Bike pedals great and is surprisingly plush and fun even on National. I am trying to build a fleet that encompasses more riding styles. I’d be willing to trade for a 29er hardtail, preferably one I can run SS with somewhat modern geo. Typically an XL, but occasionally a large. Or cash and carry. Central Phoenix. PM to make arrangements, trade offers or discuss additional parts. I will ship via Bikeflights.
