Anyone on a Chromag TRL or Samurai? thoughts, info, experience, pics?
What are you looking at?
Well I have never ridden one but it doesn't seem like alot of mtbr'ers have, so heres what I know about Chromag... Their made in Whistler B.C.... I think the frames sell for around $1000 CAD... They make a FR, a DH, and a trail bike but I don't know which is which... there is an article about them in the January 2006 issue of Mountain Bike Action... I think they look top quality and I hope to test one soon...
They definitely look like sweet bikes!
These frames are designed&tested in Whistler, and welded in Squamish, BC. They are very high-end and offer geometry that is relevant for tech singletrack. I've got their bar and stem and the quality is top shelf.
Their website was recently updated - you can see all four frames there, including the new XC light frame (<4lbs). You'll find more rider reports on the TRL and Gypsy over on pinkbike
