Chromag Bikes Samurai 65
"Just because I ride a steel hardtail doesn’t mean I’m a curmudgeonly retro-revivalist luddite. I have a beard because it keeps me warm, that’s all. I started riding mountain bikes years ago and I’ve been through enough flavours of bikes to know what’s worthwhile and what’s BS. I want something that will get me to the top of the hill or mountain with minimum fuss but I need something capable for when I want to charge into steep, rocky, roots trails. I don’t want to ever have to think whether I have the right bike for the job, just one bike no matter how long or how gnar the ride becomes. I want something that is designed by guys I know I can trust and is handmade by someone I respect. I want something simple because most stuff is unnecessarily complicated, but I want it to be absolutely up-to-date, including rolling on 27.5-inch wheels. Back To The Future at 88 miles an hour!"
