    Chumba Logo Color?

    What do you think looks better? White Logo or Black?

    Keep in mind this will be high gloss finish when done.

    The white (bike) one is just for comments.

    Which bike is that?

    **EDIT** Black but I would stick with the current style logo.

    Chumba HX1? new one on me, and on Google too, a search on "Chumba HX1" turns up this post and pretty much nothing else.

    Looks interesting though...

    Too busy lookin'!!!

    I like the clean look of the full suspension frames.

    Too many things goin' on here. I think the shadow outlined logos on a single color frame would be classier. Maybe paint the front half of the frame and polish and clear the rear triangle to look two-toned like the full suspension bikes.

    If you must stick with this painted format, I'd go with the black logo. Maybe ditch the red bands on the seat stays to clean it up a little.

    The first pic (white logo on gray) looks very Euro. I think I like it better than the other two....

    I agree. It looks like something from one of the big box companies... which isn't a good thing. I like the idea of half paint/ano and half polished. Otherwise just keep it nice and simple.

    I don't like the logo, it appears to be too simple to me. One step backwards from the current one.

    And I do not like it has too many colors and little harmony. Do the frame all matt black or ano grey with red or orange rims and we talk another language.

    I really like the paint. I don't see any big box bikes that look like this. I like the red highlights. Good job. I doesn't look like the other "boutique" brands. It sets it apart. If you want to look like all the boutique brands, use the raw or silver on the back end.

    Thanks for all the feedback guys - what colors would you like to see? I was thinking Ano Blue, Ano Black, and white.

    Sounds good. IMO you should keep the same colors and logo across the entire line.

    Why?

    No offense, but why would anyone want to buy a hardtail? It's seems like reverse evolution to me. I had one when I started riding..1991 Trek hardtail with no suspension fork, rim brakes etc. Granted it was lighter, but the ride quality was horrible by todays standards.

    Cool paint schemes though. I also agree the red on the seatstays make it look like it's trying to be a LOOK brand bike.

    I have no use for a hardtail either, but I know some guys that love them and can do some pretty amazing things with them. Trials type of riding in tech terrain.

    Ever since switchin to full suspension back in the early 90's, I haven't looked back!

    Because of too flat terrain???

    I'm moving from a mountain area to a coastal area and looking for a HT. My current Titus Switchblade is overkill.

    Come on, Alan.. sweeten my ears and talk me into your HT... in white.

    I wanted something that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg and that would be something kind of exclusive.... this post comes in the right time.

    Hey Warp,

    Lightweight, torsionally rigid, and well-thought out lines and a clean execution with a price that won't break the bank. Geometry refined over years for comfortable climbing, speedy descents, and razor sharp handling - and you have your new CHUMBA hardtail available with custom builds at competitive prices. Will keep everyone in the loop - shoot me a PM if you have any more questions.

    "Lightweight, torsionally rigid, and well-thought out lines" - I think I dated her in college.

    Actually I would be very interested in a Chumba hardtail if I could get one in anodized black!

    Any numbers on the geometry? Are we looking at something in the niche where the Sta Cruz Jackal is sitting?

    I also like the one with the black logo and grey, I think it looks pretty cool.

    I'd be interested in this. HT's are fun. Great for rides that are flatter, faster, and include some pavement on the way to and from the trailhead. HT's with slack head angles are the cat's pajamas. Hint hint.

    Out of those three I prefer the third (black / gray with black text). I like the red at the rear, but that font... Somebody allready mentioned big box bikes, my first thought of the logo was one of the oem brands big sports stores sell here. Especially the white / black gives me this impression.

    Maby you could do what Transition are doing and just add stickers in the box for people to put themselves (black and white)?

    Looks beefy (as anything from Chumba should)! What's going on in the bottom bracket area, is that an eccentric?

    Much better logo.

    Good call. Simpler, cleaner, and as others said, doesn't look like a big bike company's designs.

    Oh, raw is hot, too.

    Looks like you guys decided to go with aluminum??? Is that correct? Are all the hardtails (29er included) going to be aluminum. Just wondering.

    While I prefer round tubes....the new hardtail looks pretty good.

    Any chance you could share some geometry numbers?

    cheers

    What's the price for the hardtail, both built and frame-only?
