PRESS RELEASE/BIKE PORN
Introducing the Titanium Chromag Surface
There's no doubt in our minds that Chromag makes some absolutely beautiful bikes, but their new Titanium Surface might just take the cake. Crafted from an entirely custom Ti tube set, it's the epitome of Chromag's design philosophy. There's only one build, a top-shelf selection of SRAM and Chromag's own components, and it will set you back an eye-watering $7,500 CAD / $6,450 USD (or as a frameset only for $3,600/ $3,100 USD), but we hear the black market on organs is a pretty safe bet these days. Get all the details and some gorgeous pictures after the break.
New for 2018 is the Surface Ti. Chromag’s first ever Titanium hardtail. The Surface Ti mirrors the geometry of our highly evolved Surface model featuring our most updated geometry, tuned for all mountain capabilities with rugged trail riding as the priority.
As per the evolution of all our trail bikes the Surface Ti features long front end geometry, slacker head angle, steep seat tube angle, short chainstays, and low BB height, all tuned for longer travel (150mm). This frame is designed with 148 Boost rear axle spacing and a new yoke, CNC machined from solid titanium for increased tire clearance.
