Chromag bikes has my utmost respect for not falling into the rabbit hole of bicycle industry "progression", and rather sticking to simple, fun, reliable mountain bikes and parts, that can take you anywhere your mind and body allow you to travel. This recent article on the Bike Mag website brings to light feelings I to have been experiencing recently. This is not an article about Chromag, but simply about reconnecting with the reason you originally started riding a mountain bike in the woods (especially if you started riding before 2000). Chromag just so happens to be one of the few companies to represent this feeling without even trying. Thank you Seb Kemp for the brilliant narrative writing.
