Our friends at Chumba USA (@chumbausa) in Austin, Texas, will soon be closing the pre-order window for their upcoming batch of US-made titanium frames. There’s just under one week left before the January 10 deadline to get into the order queue for titanium Terlingua and Stella frames to be delivered in March. Find a quick overview of both models below.
Chumba Terlingua Titanium
Chumba says their Terlingua Titanium “represents the pinnacle combination of gravel geometry, component compatibility, and tire clearance.” Built from a mix of oversized aerospace titanium tubing (3/2.5 for the frame and 6/4 for the yoke and dropouts), the Ti Terlingua features sliding Paragon Machine Works dropout inserts, clearance for 700 x 50mm or 650B x 2.1″ tires, ample room for big chainrings on 1x and 2x drivetrains, a machined headtube for tapered or straight headtubes, and a covert dropper port. There are a number of customizations available for an additional cost, including various mounts, Di2 routing, as well as a wide variety of finishes and paint options. The Terlingua Titanium is available in six sizes between 50 and 60cm and the frame-only option with base-level graphics costs $2,250. It’s also offered with an ENVE G Series fork for $2,799 or an ENVE Adventure Fork for $2,875.
Chumba Stella Titanium
Proven during record-setting wins on the Tour Divide, Stagecoach 400, and others, the Stella 29er is what CHUMBA calls their “premiere XC and Endurance race hardtail.” Designed with maximum versatility in mind, the Stella Titanium will accommodate a wide range of tire sizes, hub options, and fork lengths. Built from size-specific oversized aerospace titanium tubing, the latest version has been updated with 10mm shorter chainstays (433mm) and features Paragon Machine Works (PMW) dropout inserts, a 73mm English threaded bottom bracket, custom forming at the downtube/bottom bracket junction for increased stiffness, clean cable routing via bolt-on guides, and covert dropper routing. A number of additional customizations and finishes are available for an added fee. It’s intended to be run with a rigid or 100 to 120mm travel fork. The Stella Titanium is available in four sizes (S, M, L, XL) and costs $2,250 for a frame-only configuration.
