Top tube bend. Gets us every time.

Yeah, its also sort of what sets chromag apart from the rest. I know how you guys feel though, I feel the same about Sklar... So close to being sexy. I guess bends down don't bother me the way bends up do.

It used to bother me a little. But then you ride one. Zero f*cks given about a bend. Same with Sklar bikes. I didn’t think they were all that until I ran across one on the hill. Stunning bikes in person.

Yep, that certainly is a factor.

I’m definitely in the minority here but I actually don’t mind the bend. That burnt orange Mag works for me.

Ditto on the bent TT. I would prefer it straight but it doesnt offend.

I wasn’t a fan of the bend, but it grew on me. Bought one, and love the bike. You can tell it’s a Chromag instantly.

Isn’t anyone else getting bored with only wanting a straight top tube to seat stay line? I sure am. I like the small bend in the Chromag or slight offset of the Moxie. Subtle things that make the bikes different. Only thing I change on Chromag’s is the cable off the the bottom of the down tube to on the top of it.
The slick is sick. Maybe just a black bar though. That’s a lot of slick going on.

Straight tubes are always the most aesthetic. Especially nice when there's no reinforcing additional tube connecting the top tube to seat tube (think Sour & Pace).

Just my opinion.

And then all hardtails would look the same. That'd be boring as hell.

Agreed. I actually like the "Chromag bend".
