    My Chumba EVO!

    Did my build for fr/Am and possibly for sea otter DH. Yes its a medium but it rides well and is flickable and that was the reason I chose to built it afterall.
    I've been wanting an Evo for messing around for quite a while! :thumb:

    Some parts are in need of changing and they will but for now its not too bad! Still need front shifter, rear der and cassette.

    Not my typical bling set up till I ride and start to hammer out what I like and dislike then Ill start making changes and build it to suit and lighten the cr@p out of it. Its lighter then the jedi right now!

    BB is 14.25 inches and the way the bike is tilted to hold it up it looks higher. WB is 44"

    Chumba evo medium (USA build)
    Fox dhx 5.0 air
    Marzocchi Z1 FR eta rc2 (yes its orange!)
    Singletrack wheelset some flea hubs ???
    XT fcm760 cranks
    shimano hyd disc brakes
    truvative OS 60mm stem
    Truvativbe OS bars
    ODI grips
    X9 shifters
    X9 rear der
    E-13 drs (need to install still)
    FSA headset
    Schwalbe muddy mary 2.5 front (DH) almighty 2.35 (dh) (going tubeless tonight and single ply schwalbes or possibly some of my old nevegals to beat on)
    some saddle thats funky!!!!

    Enjoy them! Nah I just hustle alot and dig around for stuff. I own my own business so Im on the computer doing graphis, wraps and signs al day so I sneak peaks at stuff.
    Once in a while something pops up, and the good ol "cash talks" still works and even better in todays economy!
    I also do trades for full new bikes once in a while and teams so I get stuff there also, I have a Kona stab supreme 08 fabien barel edition coming the end of 2 weeks as soon as the jobs are done. So that and some BLING for the EVO as well!

    USA frame means its a few years older, right? I'm curious what year is the frame and how much it cost =)? Awesome build regardless of the price.

    Its an 06, Harris bought it mid/late 07 as a carry over.
    He was mainly XC and rode it a few times, decided it was too much bike and went back to a kona 4" travel light set up. So wasnt even abused almost perfect shape even the cable rub was minimal.
