Chromag Ambassador, Dominik Puffer teamed up with the ER Crew out of the Czech Republic to create a Stylus video this summer. We were pretty stoked to see their work. It's a cool blend of loamy trails, hits and trials riding in a beautiful setting. Dominik is well known in the Czech Republic as a trials rider with a national title and many podium finishes in Europe. Nowadays, he is coaching, competing in enduro races on his hard tail and creating content.

The ER Crew are a group of four riders who live in Ceske Budejovice in the southern region of Czech Republic. The city where the original Budweiser beer comes from! Besides beer, the ER crew likes riding bikes, building trials and making videos. We hope to see more from this crew in the future.

 So rad. I know pivots and a shock aren't complicated but damn I love my hardtail when a trail isn't too rocky/rooty. Just a great feeling, cheaper, easy to clean, and lots of fun.

 What a raw, true, real world edit. Love the purity of the riding without all the flashy kits overbearing music or gimics. Keep up the inspiring riding! Best video I have seen in a long time!

 Great riding, banger of an edit. Even more impressive that he’s tackling everything from gnar to trails to trialsin with crazy skills on one frame.

And yes, the Stylus is that awesome. I changed mine out for a Monk for a bit more of a specialist flavor, but damn that Stylus was a blast. Still miss it.

 I have to admit that full face and goggles with no kneepads seems silly to me for some reason.

 That last shot! Dude seriously one of my favorite edits on pink bike I’ve seen in a very very very long time! As said before, hardtails rule!!!

 100% riding, 0% posing. Low profile, chilled vibe despite the incredible skills and effortless style. Is this the recipe for the perfect mtb edit?

 Loved the gutsy, connected feel of this vid. Camera angles and edits all really tight, which is what hardtail riding is like, especially on flats. Never come close to this skill level but I do get that direct connection to the terrain and feeling of balance that a good hardtail gives out. I ride BTR and fully recommend them.

 I've been riding a Rootdown for about 4 years now. The Venn diagram of me and this guy on his Stylus is like O O. The longest wheelbase you can imagine let's say

 So clean and simple old skool style with new skool steez! stylish edit and music too!!

Great job; all those involved and Chromag Bikes!!!!

 A hardtail is always fun to ride , even on not so technical trails...
A full suspended bike is boring and tend to make you lazy
( cleaning, maintenance, bearing play , price ...disadvantage)

 Man. Clips like this make me want to return to the roots and ride rear rigid. I don't know if my lower back will forgive me...

 This guy's got a really cool style. Midair pedaling to manual... Definitely never seen that before!

 just for future reference, mid-air pedalling is known as an ET. for reasons i'm sure you can imagine.

 In the land of steel Hardtails,why can't we get chromag frames in the UK?
  • 5 0
 We can definitely help you with that.

 You're right but there are plenty of other good options. I'd give my left nut for BTR.

 Doesn't CRC do all Chromag stuff now in UK. I ended up getting my Trailmaster LTD from the US as CRC never have any.
  • 2 0
 Maybe because they’ve figured out we are ‘the land of (many) steel hardtails’?
  • 2 0
 If only there were some companies in the UK who made steel hardtails...

 Maybe the Canadians are rebelling against the Queen?

 since coming to canada, i've discovered that it's quite difficult to get a steel hardtail over here, Chromag is almost your only option.... good thing Chromags are sick. There is SO much choice in the UK!

 @fartymarty: I prefer keeping my BTR over having your left nut.
