I bought this from a guy on Rotorburn after I snapped my Rocky mountain in 2 earlier this year.

For all the info and specs have a look at the ad on epay:

Price is "ono" and happy to talk turkey and do a special price for a NobMob-er. Laughing out loud

I know you'll all be excited to hear I've relisted the Chumba. Laughing out loud

Re-re-listed after the previous buyer couldn't go ahead with the deal.

I want this bike gone people!

Looking for a solid, super plush 4.5" travel All-Mountain ride? Want something a bit different without sacrificing performance and ability? Then read on...

I purchased this bike (frame only) second hand, sight unseen earlier this year after breaking the frame of my old bike with the intention of swapping over the components and riding on. Turns out many of the components of my old bike were worn or not compatible so this bike is loaded with lots of brand new good gear!

After I'd built it up I found the geometry to be a little smaller than the original seller stated (see Specs below...) and a little too small for me, hence the reason for selling. I'm 6'1" but like a long reach/top tube length. I'm guessing it would suit anyone 5'9" to 6'1".

As far as I can tell from my research it's a 2006/07, hand built in the good ole U.S. of A. The geometry is a little different to the current XCL:

Horizontal / Virtual Top Tube: 600mm (23.6")

Actual Top Tube: 580mm (22.8")

Seat tube (BB centre to top): 485mm (19.1")

Head Tube: 140mm (5.5")


Frame: 6061 T-6 Aluminium

Forks: Marzocchi AM1, Adjustable: travel (130mm-85mm "on the fly", lever on fork), rebound and compression. Air sprung. Drop the fork to the lower setting for climbing, and back to the higher setting for hitting the rough stuff!

Rear Shock: Fox RP3 with 3 position Pro Pedal

Cranks and chain rings: ***Brand New*** Shimano XT

Bottom Bracket: ***Brand New*** Shimano XT

Chain: ***Brand New*** Shimano XT

Front Derailleur: ***Brand New*** Shimano XT

Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT

Shifters: Shimano Deore

Rear Cassette: ***Brand New*** Shimano

Brakes: Shimano Deore (6 months old), excellent feel and power. 6" rotors F&R.

Bars: Easton EA30

Stem: Truvativ XR

Grips: ***Brand New*** Lizard Skins "Peaty" Lock On with red bling!

Saddle: ***New*** Velo (but shop soiled by tyre mark on lhs...see pics)

Headset: Cane Creek, ***Brand New*** sealed bearings installed.

Rims: Mavic XM 317 (1 year old)

Hubs: Shimano Deore (1 year old)

Tyres: Maxxis ADvantage, Rear: Tubeless (no more pinch flats), Front: Tubed. ~60% tread left. Can swap the rear over for a tubed tyre if you prefer.

For more info on the Chumbas have a look at:

I've done less than a kilometer on the bike. That was just to take it for a quick spin to make sure it was all working OK and to get a feel for it. It's a very nice ride but as I said the size is not right for me. I've since bought a new bike so this one really has to go. If it had fitted me I'm sure it would have been a great bike for the local trails (Manly Dam, etc).

Feel free to ask any questions.

But wait! There's more! You'll now get 50% EXTRA BLING! I just added a snazzy red bottle holder, at NO extra cost!


Happy to ship the item at the buyer's expense. I can box it up securely to minimise any chance of damage enroute, but obviously can take no responsibility for damage suffered during transit.
