    Its finally ride-able, this thing is soooooo sexy and soooo nice, I am definetly happy I decided to sell the V10 and pick up this, The pics were taken when I had no air in the tires, the wheels are only temporary, and I need a rear brake adapter, but once that stuff is here, its all finished. Let me know what you think!






    2004 Chumba Wumba F4 (Lars' bike) This is 1 of 2 of these frames painted this color, its Lars' custom color.
    2004 Boxxer WC
    Hope Mono 6Ti front
    Hope Mono M4 rear
    Arrow FRX rims
    Woodman hubs
    WTB Headset
    SIC Race Bar
    SIC Camodized Stem
    Maxxis 2.5 High Roler Slow Reezays
    Deity Cranks
    E.13 Chainguide
    E.13 Crown Wheel
    Mallet C Pedals
    Sram X.O Derailler
    Sram X.9 Trigger Shifter
    Sram Cassette
    SDG I-Beem I-fly Seat
    SDG I-Beam Seatpost
    Odi Ruffian BMX Lock-Ons

    Its soooo nice, Weighs a suprising 41.5 lbs, Thats wicked light compared to my almost 46 lb V10. And Once I get the lighter wheelset it should be around 41.

    I am soooooo stoked. Thanks to Lars Tribus for hookinf me up, The Bustedspoke Team Sponsors and Jason Carpenter for working on the bike.

    Later, Dan

    MSRP is like $1,800 I think, I bought it used off Lars so I wouldn't know the exact price, compared to the v10 its waaay lighter, more flickable and bouncy, smaller, its perfect.

    NICE!
    I have a v10 and I was thinking of a light, more responsive and not too expensive frame for the next season... is the warranty good?

    Nice. Ive always thought Chumba Wumba's were dead sexy. Kinda low in the BB for N*, otherwise I'd have me one of those biotches.

    Yeah, I have been noticing the low BB a lot, but it only makes me feel more comfortable, 1st of all it rails corners like no other, yesterday I was trying what they said to do in "Fundementals" and not slow down for corners, and damn is that scary, the bike just keeps gaining speed.

    i wanna know how the i-beam system holds up, i've been wanting to get one, but i just cant justify throwing 100 bucks for the seat and seatpost while my setup is still working.

    Yeah.. wow.. demo 8.. right on. Also kinda nice to know that no one has the same bike as you. Or that you've ridden the demo 8 and it doesnt compare to your bike in spec or handling. My bikes built for me by me to ride perfect for my style. The F4 looks special too.
