really really nice frames and components. best saddles out there by far, and all the machined bits (stems, posts, QR's, etc) are works of art. and ian's one of the nicest guys in the business.

why no 25.4 bars man ???

i really wanted a set of those wide chrome Fubars, but alas no 25.4 option..

woe is me...

call me old school but i prefer the "feel" of a 25.4 bar over a 31.8... the 31.8 is to stiff...

Sethimus, you just made my day! Thaaaaaaaanks man. I've been looking for the Chromag OSX bars since they were released last year, the distributor kept telling me that they aren't available over here. Looks like they are. Thank you!

Sure, just to make you happy...

I've said it before, I'll say it again - tester fork + tester frame = uncut steerer. Sorry if that troubles you.

I testrode a Stylus at Obsession - and it was awesome, unfortunately I had not enough money with me back then. And now I have a HT and my wife tells me I am not allowed to buy another one. Two bikes are enough....

The math would not work.....seriously, you cannot sell a Norco Manic and expect to being able to buy a complete Stylus....no way this would work unless I were from Iceland or working for GM.

Thumbs up UK Distributor

Zombie,

just to confirm to everyone that Chromag DOES have a new UK distributor despite the lack of web site! (we're working on it - been a nightmare!)

Currently have limited stock of components with bulk shipment due to land in the UK mid July time.

Bear with us - new site should be up and running soon, with magazine features and product reviews coming over the next few months,

Cheers
John
