    Yes, it is a medium, it comes in at 7.5 lbs. We have smalls, too that weigh in at 7.4 lbs. Keep in mind these have the DHX Air shocks, which are .5 lb heavier than the shocks that come on most other bikes in this category, and the frames are beefier than most 5" frame out there. These are for real trail bikes.

    So I think I have figured out Chumba's diabolical plan, they're going to show the colors in order based on MY preferences(Sorry everyone else their marketing department's brain ray only works on me). First they hook me with the black, then they make me drool over gray. What color could possibly top gray? only time or a brain ray will tell.

    weight loss...

    I have a Large non butted version, weighs 8.5 lbs. So I guess the 1 lb weight loss that was predicted is correct.

    I just switched my order from black to gray. The gray looks sick,
    although I had no problem with the black. I dont think they can top
    the grey ano. Thats currently my favorite color for a bike frame.
    Makes the inevitable scratches blend in well.

    ...it is hard to find a color that is both practical and great too look at, but this is definitely one of them.

    Thanks DirtDad! That is awesome to finally see some pictures of the frame. Just wish it didn't weigh so much. Then again, I guess its a Chumba so its pretty much bombproof.

    I was talking to the guys at Chumba about that. I would call the EVO all mountain, the XCL a trail bike, and I think there is room in their line up for a 3-4 inch travel lightweight race bike at some point. But I rode the proto XCL (1 pound heavier), and I can say the weight does not intrude, there really is something to be said for a solid frame to pedal on.

    I built myself up a couple of 22-24 pound dual suspension race bikes in the past, but ended up not liking them in the long run. You can build a bike down to that weight, but then it is a flexy noodle and uncomfortable to ride - at least is was for me. You could build an XCL in the 26-28 pound range, no problem (the stock kit would be heavier), and that would be a fun bike to ride, and XC raceworthy if you ask me - just not a dedicated race bike.

    Its something I will have to get out and ride. The 26-28 range is weight weenie to me as I am looking 30-32. Right now my Switch is 39 and that is a beast. I have one friend on a Spot and one on a Transition Covert and I am looking for that kind of style. I will do a 3-4' drop to flat as much as I can but I need a frame that can hold up to it. I want the same frame to be able to do a 30-50 mile epic in the New England part of the woods without making me kill myself. This bike is still very much on the top of my list, need to find a way to throw a leg over it in the next year...
