After what was two weeks of rain here, I was going crazy not being able to get much riding in. So I came up with this idea. It works a treat!!!! gets a little sketchy on really steep sections (especially if you accidentally forget to check the tallas adjuster hasn't been knocked on the shuttle bus on the way to the top :madman: (3 runs with only 120mm set at the front agghh!!)).

But when running 160 it's not too bad (I run a lot of sag at the back). The best thing i love about the bike is that it doesn't rely on some new wiz bang rear shock to work. The Chumba bikes were working years ago and still do. I love the fact I can run an old Vanilla RC on it and it still out pedals and out performs all these other new bikes with crazy shocks and settings. CHUMBA know how to build bikes that's for sure...

Does the crown of the fork hit the downtube??
No, there is plenty of room for X - UPS:thumbsup:

just remember about the brake cables if you are wanting to do bar spins :D

I think the nice fat head tube on the new F5 also helps keep the single crowns stiffer than what they would be over a conventional head tube.
