    Chromag pics

    Hi,

    since I'm searching for pics of Samurai and Trl, in L size, I thought I could open a thread so that people can show their gorgeous canadian steel hardtails!

    Come on, post your Chromags (and please report model and size )!

    I want a Chromag but could not justify spending that much on a frame. I just built a Cove Handjob and completely satisfied. But I would like to see some Chromag pics as well so post up.

    Hello !
    I've now a Samuraļ in L size. I had previousely a Samuraļ second hand in M size and it was a little bit short for me. I've ordered the new frame by my idol-guitarist and now bike shop owner in BC. For my frame, I was in contact too with Ian Ritz, the owner of Chromag and he was very friendly and professional. I can't enough recommend his frames and accessories, they are the best for me. My bike is mounted like this :
    Chromag Samuraļ L size frame, Magura Laurin FCR 130 fork, DT Swiss EX 5.1D rims with DT 240 hubs and DT RWS axles, Conti MT King tires, Chromag bars-seatpost-seatpost colar, RF Atlas stem, Profile Racing crank with Ti axle and RF chainrings, Shimano XTR shifters-derrailleurs-cassette-chain, Chris King headset, SDG Bel Air (now WTB) saddle, RF grips. This is a super MTB for Hard XC and All Mountain and it rides amazingly in my country, here in Switzerland.
    I've a picture of this bike, but I can't and don't know how to post it.

    Here's the picture. The guitar and the LP is in homage to Paul, the greatest rock guitarist for me.

    Thanks for your interests. ;-)

    I am 5ft ten, blue eyed and short legged.
    I like cats, reading good books, listen to music and go shopping with friends. My favorite color is green. A greyish green. Or maybe it is more of a greenish grey ...

    The chromag is slightly under 27lbs fat with those amazing extra strong sidewall Tioga DH-tires and slightly under 25lbs with cliplees pedals and reasonable not yet lightweight tires.

    Hope, some of the informations are of any use for you guys ;-)

    cheers

    Me too, so I guess a Medium Chromag would work for me just fine Yours looks good but I think the Samurai would be more like what I'd need.

    [SIZE="1"](cats aren't too bad. The only thing with dogs is that you have to go out with them whatever the weather.)[/SIZE]

    Similar situation here. 6', 35" inseam, in love with Samurai. I guess the large would be the size I need but I'm afraid about standover height. So I was searching for pictures of Chromags in L-size.

    @pooka: gorgeous Sakura!

    Greb, we are the same size and have the same inseam.

    If I take a stylus, that's be a Med, can't quite get my mind around going Med for a SAmourai though. In that case I'd say that Lrg is the way to go

    Do you mean that a Samurai should be more "pedal-friendly" than a Stylus? If so I think you're right, the longer top tube is what I need for a do-it-all bike.

    I think the Stylus is much heavier than the Samurai.

    It is indeed but so versatile and fun. I demoed this one:



    it was set up as a single speed to fool around on the Roc d'azur exhibition.

    I would have it with a 2x9 and 140mm fork most probably.

    dunno.

    Here you can see some pics of the new Stylus, with updated decals and a relieved yoke between the chainstays.

    I have been lusting over the Stylus for over a year now. It looks like the perfect do it all bike. Chromag seems to have perfect geometry on these bikes and they look great. Anyone know where to get one of these bikes in the United States? Their websites dealer list isn't much help..
