I think this whole process has taken me six years - from when I got the frame to now. It's all been worth it.

Here she is...

I think the Talas is a great choice for this bike, and having put 80 or so rides on my 140 version, I'm happy with it. Something makes me think I should be looking for a steel hardtail, even though I love the handling of my SC Chameleon.

I have finally forsaken SPDs after a long relationship. I don't think I'm much slower on the way up and I'm certainly faster on the way down. Most importantly I have more fun.


Also, that's a seriously beautiful bike.

chromag has a few new frames… One thing about your bb height comment and comparing it to chromag, I always found that chromag has really low bb compared to others. Check other "modern" hardtails like transition, cove, santacruz… their bb's are some what higher. That being said I must agree, yours seem a tad high. btw love the paint, looks great. That's a good looking bike, don't scratch it!

Damn beauty, but heavier than I expected. Only 2lbs lighter than my Reign 0 and I have a bigger fork, heavier wheels, chainguide, DH bar, etc etc….

The Chromag Aperture is a frame that I'm considering selling the Reign for.
