- 2011 / 2012 Cove Hummer – Who has one and opinion[s] ?
Not at all, just giving you the wind up.
Wasn’t it you that said the old one was the “best trail centre-bike ever made”, then bought a Nicolai and spent your life on forums discussing shock set up or some crap?
Sincere apologies if I got that wrong. Still happy to have a ride-off (just not on the “best trail centre-bike ever made”, unless we’re on natural trails)Posted 8 years agorexatedMember
do the newer ones differ much from the old (well, 2005 vintage) frames a great deal?
My 2005 was probably the best handling hardtail I’ve owned, but the whole chainsuck episode / stw epiphenomenom / real problems with gouging the chainstay caused me to get rid….
i had a ti 456 after that but it never quite matched up…

To be fair tlr, you did wax lyrical about the hummer for bloody ages, only thento wax lyrical AGAIN using almost exactly the same phrases on your nicolai.
Steep and deep was one of your funnier catchphrases.
Al is a bit weird though, has he broken in and sniffed your pants yet?Posted 8 years agowab1234Member
Fellows, new to the forum and wanted to let you know that I’ve ordered a 2011 Hummer based on the great comments on the site. Will post pictures of the build soon. On another note, I ride with one of the owners of Cove Bikes and I rode his “one-off” Hummer softail. It has a DT Swiss kiss shock along the seat seat stay and no pivot at the bottom bracket, similar to a Moots design. The ride was bliss! I’ll try to get pictures of it for this post.Posted 8 years agohummerliciousMemberbobalongMember
Had one and loved it!
It was a little more suited to bigger terrain than the areas i get to ride regularly so i sold it and bought a soda.
The soda cant take such a long fork, but i found the Hummer worked best around 120-130 anyway.
My Hummer broke too, but a warranty replacemnt was given without a problem. It developed a strange crack horizontally on the top tube where it joins the seat tube.
I still have the medium soda, but am considering parting with it.Posted 8 years ago
