    Gone F5 Racing

    Fist Pics of James Maltmans New F5!!!

    after finishing 5th at the last Australian National round James is on track for a good finish at this weekends National Championships.. Lets hope he has been doing plenty of climbing over the past few weeks to get over that hill which is part of the final straight (and next years World Championships).

    Enjoy!

    Nice work, yeah its a bit smaller/shorter than standard but other than that it is a stock standard bike. Other than of course its a Chumba which means its built for going super fast (faster than any of us could imagine), built to last (like mtb's should be), and generally speaking just plain better......

    The top tube, if you want to call it that, is one piece on that bike from the head tube to the the bottom bracket. Different gusset on the front also. How tall is James???
