The original hardcore hardtail. Handcrafted in small batches, the Canfield Bikes Nimble 9 is a steel all-mountain hardtail built to get rowdy and designed to accommodate 29-inch, 29-plus or 27.5-plus wheels with up to 2.8-inch tires.

Combining the revered ride quality of 4130 chromoly steel with updated aggressive all-mountain geometry, the Nimble 9 challenges preconceptions of mountain bikes with both big wheels and rigid rear-ends. A slack 66-degree head-angle keeps things confident when you venture where no hardtail should, and short chainstays (adjustable down to 16.33-inches via sliding dropouts) make sure the Nimble 9 lives up to its name.
