    XCL frame weights revealed

    I took my trusty digital scale to a local Chumba dealer to see what I could see. I took pictures but I didn't get permission from the shop owner to post them (he was very helpful and knowledgeable but I just didn't ask him if I could post the pics). So here's what I found out in words only:

    The 2007 butted small with seat collar and DHX Air weighed 7 lbs 4 1/2 oz. I say "butted" not because it was obvious when looking at the frame but that's what the dealer told me.

    Last year's non-butted medium with seat collar and DHX Air weighed 7 lbs 4 oz. Yes, less.

    The gussetting was different from frame to frame but they both looked real stout and sweet. With an RP23 on either the frame weight would be around 6 lbs 13 oz. Hopefully in future weeks they'll have a medium built up as a demo.

    A buddy of mine has an XCL frame (large) with Fox RP23 that weighed 7.5 lbs.

    My Chumba frame arrived today... first thing I did was weigh it.
    It's a small size Chumba with the Fox DHX... it weighted in at 7.6 lbs

    Not bad for such a stout frame! This thing looks built proof!
    Can't wait to ride it.
