1. how much does the following frames wiegh
ZULU DH -
F4 DH
THE HARDTAIL MODEL-what size fork up to 6in

2. does any one recommend any of these bikes.why?

3. does anyone dislike these bikes and why.

4. ALSO are these bikes like more of just strait dh bikes because i want to use them for freeriding mostly.

5. most importantly does anyone know any info on requirements for a bike shop ordering one. My boss has no problem looking into it for me. my shop would prolly only be ordering just one for me though.

7. some pics of the hardtail or any chumbas would be very cool

7 months?!?! I've been quoted four weeks from thebikeco.com, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Went down to their shop, and they had two black anno's (one frame and one half built for a customer).

I don't know about the weights, but the Zulu is definitely the heavier of the two. The Zulu is a battle tested rig, but is very limited production. To be honest, I'm not sure Chumba is even still producing them... I know that the F4 was to replace it, eventually.

The F4 is the full on, lighter weight race steed. Very nice too.

Your shop would have to contact Chumba directly to get a dealer application, even for one bike. Chumba's are very exclusive bikes... sometimes hard to get, but very nice rigs. I nearly purchased one a year ago, but ended up getting a Turner... I still love those Chumba's though; Nobody does welds quite like them.
