- Anyone riding a Canfield Bros Nimble 9 2 ?
Thinking of ‘upgrading’ my ss inbred 29er size 16 – it rides great and that’s perhaps why I’m on the fence as to wheather the N92 will ride that much sweeter – what do folks think ? I heard the N92 feels quite stiff for a Cro-Mo .. My main type of riding is local trails pump tracks and the occasional trail centre – I only have one bike and have been known to do the odd two day bike backing trip never going to ride more than 50 miles in a day .. Part of me thinks the the Canfield is more of an object of desire than a genuinely significant improvement in the saddle ….As many have said inbreds are mentally good value fun rides … It jumps pretty damn well – which is meant to be the N92’s forte – dilemmas dilemmas ….. In my head I’m still a 15 year old Bmx racer 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I’ve the Nimble 9 ….it’s very very good …..I had a Yelli Screamy as well but only seamed to rise the Nimble 9 as it was SS
I’d def get another
If your in Somerset you are welcome to have a spin …it’s a 16″ as well
Oh and yes it will ride much better than the On-OnePosted 4 years ago
I like my Yelli, I run it SS a lot, would happily jump on an N9 if I could swallow the price.
A couple of my ride buddies are on 29er Inbreds, they ride them good. I’d say the Yelli (same geo as N9) is more playful, I find it fun and forgiving. The Inbred is more of an XC charger.
No bad decision here I feel.Posted 4 years ago
Canfield have an importer in Germany who may be able to save you a few quid. My Yelli came from there tho I bought it used.
Remember not to confuse price with value.
I’ve seen a few Yellis about, owners tend to chat like some kind of odd classic car brotherhood, but I’ve never seen an N9 in the flesh.

Im lovimg the pics ! Looking really lush in black – August is my Birthday so im going to ride the hell out of the inbred all summer and … Damn I think this thread just made up my mind ! Nimble 9 hear we come …Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for German distribution tip ….. I’m liking the forest green
black or chrome surely
I tend to go for black as I am inept at colour matching, and I think a muddy black mountain bike just looks proper.
which gives me the chance for a gratuitous, off topic, pic links.
you’ll probably ask me about the apparent “magic ratio”, I think it was on 34:19 with a slightly worn chain and it was a bit tight, not really viable.
if you want to try for fit, as it’s same geo as the N9, it’s a medium and I’m in Surrey.

Wasn’t aware of that Cromag Surface – looks insanely sweet ! Although the vertical dropouts would rule it out for my next purchase – as I’ll still be going SS the slider dropouts on the N92 will be more for me ….. Not that I ever had a bike with sliders – I’d be content with horizontal dropouts just like my inbred – clean and simple – never had an issue loosing chain tension .. if I ever pulled the trigger on a custom I’d go for horizontal dropouts …Posted 4 years ago
