just a quick shout out to see if anyone has experience with these frames

i just got a samurai from them and it is absoultely amazing - the workmanship is first class and the ride is fantastic - so stiff and responsive!!!

the bix stays with 2.7 tyre clearance is a bonus!!

if anyone gets the chance - buy one!!

I've been considering a Samurai - it looks like it would be just the job for a do-it-all kind of bike. Good mud clearance, ability to run big tyres, plenty of standover and pretty much bombproof, without being overly heavy.

What height are you and what size did you end up getting?

i'm 6ft and got a small?!?! got a very long top tube though and the gussets at the seatube make it taller

i forget how they measure their frames though.. if its c-c its a small if its c-t its a medium

drop ian @ chromag a call - he's pretty accomodating and willing to help!

awesome bike - only thing is i wanted to run 2 plus chainguide but there are no iscg mounts - they are on the trl!!

the samurai and the trl anre canadian made and the others made in taiwan
