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,
:cool:

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.

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. :D :thumbsup:
