man is it fun, and was a steal (2nd hand, but you can't tell)

-2007 Chromag Stylus M
-2007 Marz AM1 SL
-2007 Magura Louise BATs
-2007 X9 Der and shifter
-RF Atlas cranks, Diabolus Headset, bar and stem (ugh heavy..)
-Welded Rhynolites
-Ringle hub, and post
-My old WTB Rocket V seat.
and some sketchy Nokian tires, but man are they fast.

needs tubeless, 400mm post, Clipless pedals (acids??), and lighter bar/stem.

actually I do, I need a 400mm. I climb with my seat pretty high, but wanted a shorter tt. :P

How tall are you? I'm 6'2 and always think I want a large and then after getting one wish it were a medium for the shorter tt. I've spent way too much time on Chromag's site recently looking at the stylus and Gypsy frames.

Nice looking bike!

haha me too, I'm like 5'11, but with a 33in inseam. So I would rather ride a slightly smaller frame with a longer post. Nelson's got a large for sale….

Looks hot Connor. IF you want a nice set of tubeless wheels for cheap lemme know :P

Grease the shit out of the inside of the seat tube or else you're going to get a brown seatpost;)

Looking at your build i want to say 36Lbs…

You bet I've contemplated getting it. I think if i'm going to get one I'll buy one made in Canada, in medium. Correct me if i'm wrong but the Stylus is made over seas? Might cost more though, Chromag offer any discounts if your a bike shop employee? We don't carry chromag allthough some companies will hook you up.

It's a little bit lighter than my Six, so it's lighter than 36, but not by much.

Nice Connor!

It was nostalgic riding my HT last night for the first time in ages. I can see some HT rides with that Dan dirtbag coming up in the near future.
