    The Custom Bikes Continue - Green XCL and Green EVO

    They were both part of a limited production run that we used for staff test bikes. They were both ridden for less than 2 months and come with a full factory warranty. Both frames were manufactured in-house in our factory in Anaheim. Ted Tanouye, our frame fabricator and designer built these bikes from scratch. One is a XCL with straight-gauge tubing and a rear triangle that is a little beefier than the standard XCL. The XCL is a sized medium and comes with either a 2009 RP23 or a 2009 DHX Air. The other frame is a Freeride Edition EVO. This is a Large sized frame and is ideal for riders 5'10 to 6'1. It offers a slack seat angle to mimick DH style geometry and comes standard with a Fox DHX Coil. This EVO also uses straight gauge tubing and CNC machined parts we made in-house. They are pretty beefy - and built for abuse. Let us know what you think!

    Great looking bikes. How much does the XCL frame with RP23 shock weigh? How about a custom XCL with 5.5 inches of rear travel?

    Stuff looks great. I have been thinking about what I would like to see in my next bike...I like the idea of the XCL with a slacker HA (~66.5) and a BB height ~13.2".

    I'm also wondering if it was possible to add a thru-axle to the rear of the XCL?

    Are these items that could be addressed if I were to go Custom with Chumba?

    cheers

    Your geo numbers sound fun but that would be a very different handling ride than the current XCL. Special edition maybe?

    Sure - custom geometry is always an option. A rear thru-axle is possible as well.

    Yup, very different handling. That is what I'm looking for....

    FWIW, I did at one time own an XCL. I really enjoyed it, but circumstances beyond my control (I'm not very smart) led me to sell it. That being said, I like slack angles and if I were to look at the XCL again, I would have to go custom.

    I'm happy Chumba does the Custom program. Another example of why they are a great company.

    I love the custom green color

    Hey Allen, are these frames painted or powder coated? If powder coated, what is that brand of powder and name of that color? Does Chumba offer re-paint/re-powder of frames?

    We use a local powdercoater - not sure about the brand of paint - all I can tell you is it's the same powdercoater as some of the other U.S. boutique brands. We can re-paint and rebuild. Typically, if we are going to do a rebuild, we will do a full rebuild of the frame, meaning new bearings, hardware, etc. You can shoot me an e-mail at alan@chumbaracing.com for quotes on labor.
