    New Chromag

    There doesn't seem to be much about Chromag in this forum so i thought i would post a picture of my new Samurai.



    This one will be living in the North of Scotland

    Nice bike!
    Congrats.
    Like you said not a lot of Chromag on this site. Not sure why?
    I have a hardtail that I won't sell but I need to get out on the trails.......

    Cheers,

    Nice ride!

    One of my bro's is riding a stylus with a 66 fork. They make such nice bikes- enjoy!

    I bought a Samurai over the summer and I've never been happier with a bike. It's an amazing frame and the attention to detail is spot on.

    Hi Jass

    I bought my Samurai in the UK so i have no idea what it is in Cn$.

    Hogger

    I am 5' 7" and the medium is a good fit for me. It is easily chuckable and rides like a dream.

    I have a Stylus that I got in the fall. Such a nice hardtail and the angles are well suited to tech singletrack. I have a photo of my build that I'll post up later, but quickly listing it out:

    Large Stylus frame.
    Pike Team
    Saint Cranks
    Juicy 7 brakes
    Hadley Gold hubs onto Syncros DS28 rims
    Thomson post and stem
    Easton Bars.

    It's not a light build but built for epic BC riding.

    Stylus is about $700CDN. I'm about the same height as you and ride the large frame, fits really well, nice angles and it's great to have the low stand over height. Makes the bike feel really flickable. It's a stiff frame too and really responds to inputs in a snappy manner.

    I have a picture and I'll post it up tonight. As for weight, not sure, don't really have access to scales, but it's not light, I'd estimate 30-31lbs.

    Here she is.....

    Okay, not the best photo but you'll get the idea:

    http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/1185667/

    Full build list:

    Stylus frame - large
    Pike SL fork
    FSA headset
    Thomson Stem
    Monkey Lite bars
    Juicy 7 F + R (185/160)
    X9 shifters and rear mech.
    LX front mech
    Saint cranks/BB
    Old DX spd pedals
    e13 DRS
    SRAM 990 rear cassette
    Thomson seatpost
    WTB saddle
    Oury grips
    Kenda Nevegal tire front
    Michelin 2.2" tire rear
    Hadley hubs f+r
    Syncros DS28 rims.


    As you can tell not built to be light, built to last and take on tech singletrack. I'm running a 90mm stem and I'm 6'2" and the seatpost has no layback...so the frame is plenty long enough.

    It's a great frame and I love the graphics. It's a nice looking hardtail built up, not an XC racer, purposeful, looks like it needs to be ridden hard.

    Here's a hint... don't get the U-turn version of the Pike. You don't need it for this frame. Leave the fork in the 140mm setting and just ride. Honestly the angles are just right for all kinds of riding, even tehnical climbs.

    I could easily shed a few lbs from the bike with an air Pike (mines a coil) and XT cranks over the Saints on there.

    dmr Hubs and syncros rims with maxxis single plys
    funn stem with diabolus bar
    shimano deore (180mm/200mm combo) brakes with goodridge housing (work really good, and i already have them :-) )

    I will clean my bike and then get some better pictures of it over the weekend. It looks so nice when it's all clean and shining.
