Yep. That hunter green with leather saddle is killer. Cable routing is also super tidy. Nothing here to dislike, that thing is a contender.

My wife caught my reaction to the cable routing and thought I was watching something on pornhub.

Looks amazing, except I can’t get on board with that style of seat tube brace. Kills it for me which is a shame because it’s pretty immaculate and my favourite colour to boot.

That , plus it would have been nicer if the rear brake was inside the stays so as to not deflect from those lines

Lovely bike though

i cant get over the drop a brick on the toptube aesthetic of the chromag frames

I had a chromag wideangle in 2016 so its nothing against them to ride. But the slacker HA and the bent top tube makes it look like the frame is bent. Like the poster above. It looks like someone dropped a heavy weight on the top tube.
I can’t remember mine looking that bad.

I think it's nice for Chromags to be easily recognisable.

It would be boring if all hardtails looked the same.

I second the contender status.

That head badge is ridiculous, though!

The Rootdown is sick.

I like it and agree that it gives character. There is so little you can really do to a hardtail frame without getting superfluous (not that I mind that)

Cable routing is tight, but I don't like frames where the top tube is (almost) parallel with the seat stays. I really hate that look. So for me. No. And for this one it creates an extra no-no, that brake calliper seems really perched on top of the seat stay. Meh.

There talking about another bike dude ..not the Chromag

Yep, the Acoustic's cable routing is 1000% better than mine is at the moment. I also truly love my new bike, love the color and everything about how it came out, and I appreciate red for the nomination (I think she's pretty sexy). That said, I don't think I compare to the likes of Greymag, Corvid, etc.
