Canfield Brothers Nimble 9

The big-wheel revolution continues with the Nimble 9. The Bros. took what they loved about the revolutionary Yelli Screamy, and set about crafting a 4130 chromoly steel bike that looked good and rode better. The Nimble 9 combines the revered ride quality of a steel frame with a slack head angle, short chainstays (adjustable down to 16.25 inches via sliding dropouts) and clearance for wide tires. Whether you’re running gears or building the ultimate singlespeed, the Nimble 9 is ready to take it on.

Cable Bundles

When designing the cable layout, it was very important to not exclude anyone with any build set up. We have some customers who build their bike as single speed, we also have riders who take advantage of every cable actuated bolt-on component available. We knew that with our diverse customer base, we needed a solution that would work for EVERYONE.

Enter the Cable Bundles… Whether you are running 1 cable or 4, 1 set of cable bundles is all you need to keep your lines tight fitting and clean.
