    Chumba look awesome, I'd definitely have one if I had the cash

    Contact either Hotlines who are the UK distributor or We Love Lapierre who probably the UK's biggest retailer....they should be able to source a frame for you....

    One other worth a look is the Turner 5 Spot...Merlin have them on sale at £1,500....great frame that got great reviews in MBUK

    I'd contact si at progressive bikes www.progressive-bikes.co.uk - he's the importer for chumba. also look on STW as he's a regular contributor on there and he seems to have plenty of satisfied customers recommending them on there. he's also got some great rolling chassis / frame and fork deals on his website.

    I have contacted Si and he has offered me a good deal on a rolling chassis, I just wanted to hear what people thought of these frame before I parted with me cash!!!!

  • I'll put in a vote for the VF2. I just purchased one, and I really like it. Coming from a rocky mountain, I found it more plush, yet very agile. I would get the talas fork if possible. A few extra ponies for a lot more adjustability.
