    little Chumbas?

    Just wondering if there's any plan to build bikes in smaller sizes... where I live (Philippines) there are lots of small riders, and I've heard a number of comments from people who love the bikes but find even the small sizes too big. Can't help thinking that an XS XCL and a true small in the Evo and F5 would find a market among women and smaller riders.

    I had the same thought, I've mentioned it to Alan every time I talk to him.

    I was in the shop in Manila that handles Chumba in December and Joey Barba walked in, the kid who just won the DH gold in the SE Asian Games. They wanted to set him up witrh an F5, but he's only about 5'3"...

    Chumba makes custom stuff that small. Like this extra extra small Chumba XCL that would be awesome as a template for a 29er. Or a 26er slopestyle or 4x race bike.

    Steeper HA, longer stays, lower the BB a little and pop some big wheels on that bad boy and BANG!

    I'd be on the waiting list if they just did that LOL
