    I think they may have dumped their little retail store-front: Bike Beat.

    I'm not % sure... it's been a while since I visited them.

    Dan (Rockymt21) is actually selling a pretty sick Chumba wumba f4. I'm sure he will chip in here.

    Ted, the owner, moved shop with his brother, who has a larger machine shop. Wait for the newer F5, it's stiffer in the seat mast than the F4. My experience testing the F4 and F5 have been nothing but perma-grin. very sweet bikes. low bb makes them scream around corners. 9.5 inches of progressive travel. be sure to get the floater.

    This post is completely wrong . Here is the correction.

    I didnt know that Chumba racing went out of Bizness. We are far from out of business.
    As you might have seen we have the XCL on the front cover of Mountain Bike Action.
    With one of the best reviews I have seen . You might want to question your source of information. We have the new 07 all mtn EVO and the XCL and the New F5 along with the soon to be released 29er all of our frames are Top quality . I know this is an old post and as misguided as it is I want to make it clear that our direction has never been better.
    Business has never been better. We now can produce bikes for everyone and in high volume . This is ground breaking for a company that for a long time only made high end frames for pro riders leval riders and custom frames .

    I hope this helps clear up some of the questions about this misguided post.
