- FS: 2 bikes in 1- Hardcore hardtail or 3/4 fatty (29er content)
- pop larkinMember
Right here we have an 18 inch Chumba HX2 in silver
As its a mk2 its got mahoosive rear clearance so it can either run big 29 inch rubber as a hardcore hardtail or it can be run with a fat front and upto 3 inch rear on a 26 rim – hence 3/4 fatty.
Currently it is set up with a fat front using a hope fatsno hub, 50mm rims , on one floater tyre (not in pics) and fatback fork. Rear currently is a 29er for increased speed but would soon be going back to fat rear for the winter if I was keeping to float across the mud. Can include two tyres -a duro leopard and a gazzaloddi ( both 3 inchers) for the rear duties.
Other parts include nice wide race face bars, magura julie brakes, hope seat clamp, worn gobi saddle, truvativ cranks, Goldtec one key wobbly ring- set up singlespeed but EBB will allow gearing up if thats your thang. All these parts are fairly well used but still servicable- the frame is ding free but has some lights cosmetic scratches around te chainstay/EBB area- nowt serious.
In 3/4 fat mode weight was around 27lbs so not too shabby
Obviously the alternative would be to go hardcore hardtail and put a suspension fork on her and run as a ‘normal’ 29er- but I would recommend doing both.
I will also include the rear 29er wheel as currently fitted- It’s an fsa hub set up ss on a stans arch rim currently with a maxxis beaver tyre fitted.
So how much?
If you wanted fatty type fun I would be asking £625 collected (with both rear wheel/tyre combos) but if you wanted to go hardcore hardtail and couldn’t handle the fat I could supply the bike with everything apart from forks and front wheel/tyre for £450 collected (also excluding rear fat wheel/tyres)
Based near Stoke but work near Brum and get upto Durham/Pontefract way fairly often with work.
