Following the release of their new steel drop-bar ATB, Chumba just added a titanium version to their lineup. Find details on the new Chumba Yaupon Titanium here…
Steel is real, but titanium is forever… or something like that. Texas-based bike manufacturer Chumba recently launched the Yaupon Steel drop-bar ATB, which is built around a 120mm fork, clearance for 29 x 2.6″ tires, and a relatively modern geometry. This week, they announced a titanium option.
The new Yaupon Titanium shares all the same specs and angles as the steel version. It’s handmade in Austin, Texas, the tubing is custom sized for each frame, and it features PMW sliding dropouts for 20mm of wheelbase/chainstay adjustment. The titanium frame maintains external cable routing, internal dropper post routing, big tire clearance, and compatibility with 120mm travel suspension forks or certain rigid forks such as the Enve MTN Fork. In true Chumba fashion, there are lots of other frame customizations available, including rack mounts, more bosses, unique cable routing, and various finishes and paint jobs.
Standard frames cost $3,995 USD, and Chumba offers framesets and complete/partial builds. Frames can be purchased directly through their website or by giving them a call. Learn more at ChumbaUSA.com. Stay tuned for our thoughts on the Yaupon Steel, as we’re currently testing one.
