    Si – could I be really cheeky and ask you to weigh it before you build it up?

    WTF does that mean?

    I think he’s suggesting that the chain stays are rather near to the ground (but I might be wrong – it’s so long since I studied mong)

    The frame will retail at £1599, but i am offering a deal on the first 20 frames i sell at £1350 as an introductory offer.

    I’ll weigh the frame on Monday (busy doing family stuff tomorrow) if that’s OK with you druidh?

    Here is an image with the frame built up around a pair of Fox 36’s, but i think it suits F32’s to be honest. It has all the normal Chumba bits, like the inverted BB, super stiff linkages etc..

    Look what the postman dropped off today! It is the first Chumba VF2 in the UK and i can’t wait to build it up! It is supposed to be a demo bike, but sod that its mine!

    hopefully it’s not under the laquer?

    it ‘could’ be removed quite easily, but it is only some words, as crap as they may be…..

    wow Si you’re going to end up with a lot of new bikes at this rate, everyone you get in becomes your own personal bike!

    Well I guess it means you can get a ton of publicity without paying for advertising.

    Its certainly a nice looking bike Si. Just looking at the larger pictures on their website and noticed that the bearings look rather exposed on the pivots behind the red bolts for UK riding. I might be talking rubbish but would a covering washer to protect the plastic covers on the bearings be an idea..?

    is this SPAM then?

    Spam, commercial for products that you do not require that has not been paid for ?

    I wonder.

    it looks like by Sc Blur LT, but with less pivots

    I really like that.

    Wow thanks cynic-al, i am glad you take such an interest in my bikes, if STW mods don’t like me posting the bikes then they are in their rights to remove the post. Thanks for looking…

    I’m very much looking forward to having a burn on one of those next week 🙂

    si_brodiebikes – if the mods remove this it would be a travesty seeing as Brant freely advertises his products old and new with little or no resistance can’t see the difference.

    Keep posting the pic’s oh and we need a review of how good it is when you take it for a spin.

    Agree with RudeBoy the transcend nonsense needs to be removed!!

    I think Brant just responds to queries, which is within the rules, unlike this.

    …if riding cheeky trails on not-entirely-public land is ‘transcending geographic boundaries’ then I do it every other week or so. I could tippex it on my top tube alongside my customised ‘velo club de Plympton -lanterne rouge’ errrm, ‘decoration’.

    Daft graphics. Nice looking frame.

    cynic-al – reponds to queries with a blantant plug there is no difference to the free advert below or this post about Chumba.

    brant – Member

    Thanks, my concern is that I dont want to make the mistake of geting something that feels XC and head down. I like going fast but I like a relaxed riding position, I want somethng that is fun that can be thrown around but I can rip through the trail centers/singletrack.

    You’ll love the new steel model that I’ll have coming for my new brand, but it’s not here for couple of months yet.

    Geometry the same as our Ragley Ti model. http://www.shedfire.com/tag/ragley/

    Apologies SI for going a bit off topic.

    No, there is a difference. Have you read the rules?
