Nimble 9 Rotor Clearance
We have noticed a clearance issue when installing or removing the rear wheel on the New Nimble 9. Depending on the brake and rotor combination being used, the rotor may contact the caliper when installing or removing the rear wheel, preventing the wheel to move in and out of the dropout properly. With MOST brake/rotor combinations, the brake mounting hardware will need to be loosened for rear-wheel installation and removal.
As we completely understand this is not an ideal scenario, we are producing new dropouts for the Nimble 9 that will correct this issue. The new dropouts will mount the brake, via a post-mount, above the seat stay for added clearance and will allow the use of a brakes and rotors 160mm and up. Production time is typically about a month, so we should have them in stock and shipping in about 5-6 weeks. In the meantime, please loosen your rear brake mounting hardware to install or remove your rear wheel.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us on this solution.
