    Good job! 2011 Chumba HX2 build..... sorry for the dirt in the pics...LOL

    Here is my new 2011 Chumba HX2 hardtail that I finished the other day but was too excited to try it out before getting some clean pictures of it....
    Only thing I am waiting on are a set of red headset spacers...






    Parts list:
    Frame-2011 Chumba HX2 Large in beadshot anno black
    Fork- 2011 Manitou Tower Expert 100mm (for now)
    Headset- Cane Creek Tapered with XXIX bottom cup
    Wheels- Sun Ringle' Black Flag Pro (set up tubeless)
    Shifters-SRAM X9 (front-3speed set up for 2, rear- 10spd)
    Cables- GORE Ride On full sealed from shifter to derailleurs (F+R)
    Cassette- Sram PG-1070 12-36tooth
    Chain-PC-1090 Ten spd
    Cranks- E-Thirteen "the Hive"
    Bottom Bracket- Hive External
    Brakes- Ashima Pancake with Ashima Rotors
    Seatpost- Crank Bros. Joplin
    Saddle- SDG with Ti rails
    Stem- Sunline XC one Black w/ Red Face
    Bars- Sunline Flatbar in Anno Red
    Pedals- Crank Bros Candy
    Tires- Maxxis Ardents 29 x 2.25 set up tubeless

    I know there are Chumba haters out there but this rides sweet. ... a excellent 2nd choice of ride to go with my Chumba VF2 full suspension 26er...

    That thing looks cool and probably is fun to ride (I have an '09 HX2). I bet that sucker weighs about 35# though doesn't it?

    Love the looks of that bike. "New bike you finished the other day" - yet the pictures are dated 7/18/2010. Dang, time flies in your world I guess if that was "the other day"....

    Can someone point me towards info on the redesigned frame? I'm having some trouble finding it through search. Are the geometry numbers different, or just the look of the frame?

    I emailed Oscar at Chumba and he said geo is the same as the 2010 version. Just new tubing and $100 lower price is the only change
