2005 Chromag Samurai, the hand built by Mike Truelove Chromag frames.
Back in 2006 on a 2 week visit to Van and hauled the Stuff with us. Saw a Chromag at Dizzy on W 4th. What I was looking for but then comes realities. Getting married in April and expecting our little one in July. So had to compromise for the Stylus as $750 was better then $1500. And I knew one day if I waited long enough I'd get one used.
Found a TRL that I was going to get and when I mentioned it on NSMB got first dibs on this baby.
If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.
