Hi,

I'm currently looking for a MTB with a true chrome frame (not just polished) and without any suspension.

Do you guys know which makers produce such bikes nowadays? (I don't want a second hand bike)

I'm based in Japan by the way.

Thanks in advance for any recommendation.

Cheers

yeah that's all the '13 stock and no more chrome. i know i got bit by the chrome bug last year and pre-ordered that frame and absolutely love it. good luck finding a chrome frame.

what size frame are you looking for and wheel size? you might have to bite the bullet and go Ti

Couldn't a custom builder chrome a frame? You might even be able to strip down an old (or new) frame and have it chrome plated. It wouldn't be cheap, but I'm sure it could be done.

Chrome is expensive to do right and ads weight to the frame. Some bmx companies do it but haven't seen a mountain bike in chrome in over a decade
