Press Release: Chumba Terlingua Titanium 700c or 650b plus – Gravel – CX – All Road – Dirt Touring

The idea behind the Terlingua has always been to make an extremely versatile bike that can legitimately perform in a wide range of ride styles.

To accomplish this we utilized sliding dropouts, carefully planned component compatibility and a fresh race proven geometry. The titanium version is meant to be a lighter and more responsive version of the steel Terlingua’s geo and tubing concept.

The Terlingua’s ability to be built in a range of configurations along with fantastic tire clearance makes for a bike that is truly ready for any gravel event or ride you can throw at it. Thought out features for the rider like a compliant yet race driven tubeset to three low mounted bottles for frame bag room and large capacity hydration to mean you can pull big days on the dirt.


We’ve designed Terlingua in a way that maximizes the abilities of the sliding dropout. Move the dropout rearward to make the bike more stable for long straight roads or when loaded down.

Keep it forward for rides with lots of cornering or a CX race. The sliding dropout along with our S-bend stays allow the use of a wide range of tire sizes.

Headtube, seat tube angles and BB drop are all mapped out for a balance of high and low-speed control while placing the rider in a powerful riding position.
