    140mm forks, 26″ wheels as I have those already.

    Ideally dedicated singlespeed or at least something like ebb, slot drops etc.

    Not a carbon 456 but light.

    Was about to buy a Chumba HX1 but they have gone off the site.

    Got a list of

    Pipedream
    Surly
    Singular?
    Dialled bikes
    Sanderson
    Santa cruz

    Quite literally sat credit card in hand as I’d like a replacement frame asap…

    What size? I have one last Hummingbird frame in large available I can do a deal on. Might want to drop your forks down to 120 though.

    Two thumbs up for the Hummingbird from me if you are okay with less travel. Great bike.

    Had a Dialled Love/Hate and it felt ‘dead’ in comparison to the Curtis I own now. I know its only a cheapish frame but even compared to my old Inbred SS frame, the Love/Hate felt dull.

    Why not a 456C? Ticks a load of boxes. Chameleon is nice but IMHO expensive for what it is.

    140m forks on SS? Rather you than me

    I can confirm that Love/Hates are indeed, dead. No pulse, heart beat or working organs. Dead, I tell thee!

    I’ve now bought an inbred and some new forks. Anyone need some revelations and a 456 with a stripped BB shell?

    Been fine for 3 years… Knackered the BB shell on the frame so needed a replacement.

    Would have loved something bling but have a nicer full suss (and road and cx bike) so this just needs to function. Didn’t want to keep running a tensioner though.

    Dialled love/hate. Got mine set up with rigid exotic carbon forks. I initially built this up as my winter snotter but love it so much i take it out in preference to its rather more exotic cousin whenever there’s not a geared gang to be kept up with. Fantastic uphill and down and deals with all the mud the chiterns can throw at it.
