It looks like Chromag, the Canadian company renowned for their steel hardtails, has a full suspension bike on the way, at least based on their most recent Instagram post. There have been rumors about a Chromag that wasn't a hardtail making the rounds for years, but so far no production models have been released. Based on the photos, it looks like an aluminum frame (*gasp*) that uses a Horst link suspension layout is in the works.
Now, before you get that credit card out, keep in mind that there's a good chance this is a kids bike, designed for all the little shredders out there - another Instagram post
shows a stoked grom and their new ride. Still, it's a start - maybe someday the big kids will get a full sized version of their own...

Unlike other brands they tend to stick to their roots and listen.
Customer service with this company has been on point.
Kind, helpful and resourceful.
Particularly, when it comes to their small components.
Always quality stuff from Chromag.
You know quality goes a long way in this industry.
While even the bigger companies fail at this.
At least not Chromag, no sir/mam.
Least of all, most bike companies can't even respond in a timely manner.
Luckily, that is not the case with Chromag.
Seriously, good products, this bike will be no different.

The short answer is yes, you can do this, however it will not make any difference in the fit of the bike for the rider’s body height.
The key rider-fit figures do not change. The seattube length remains the same and the reach, (pedals-to-cockpit length) will not change (unless you increase the stem length). It will only raise the bike off the ground by the difference of the wheel size. For that reason, we offer the 24” and 26” configurations in two separate bike sizes, with different reach, stack and seattube lengths for each size, to optimize the fit.

Chromag copies and pastes pages of other bikes to use as templates. I remember seeing Doctahawk geo numbers on a Wideangle when they launched their new site.
Theres another teaser pic on their Instagram with a large AL(?) headtube. Probably 29er =(
Bruh - I got a Richard Cunningham one today.
