  • Chrome Customs Military Appreciation 2015

    In 2011, US Army Vehicle Commander Jared Morford reached out to Chrome to make one of our iconic Citizen Messenger Bags with the duffel he carried in Iraq. We were so honored we made a short film, and our Chrome Customs Military Salvage Program was born. Through our Customs Military Salvage Program many people have shared their stories with us and we are moved. It reminds us how fortunate we are and how bags carry memories and meaning.

    In honor of Memorial Day, we're inviting veterans and military families to create a customs military salvage bag of their own – and waving the $40 salvage fee. Stop by any of our HUBs 5/23/15 - 5/25/15 with duffles and fatigues and work with one of our Custom Bag Makers to create your unique custom barrage, citizen, and mini metro. FIND Your LOCAL HUB: SF SOMA SEA, PDX, NYC, SF MISSION, MPLS, CHI.

Our 2015 Team Cinelli x Chrome came to NYC to race at the Red Hook Crit and since the entire team was all in the same place, we decided to throw a party. A big, big party that lasted the entire weekend and hurt the livers of many. If you were there, we hope you made it home ok and your tattoo healed nicely. For the rest of you the story goes a little something like this... Continue reading

    The 6th Annual Cutter's Ball and 2nd Annual Shop Bike Shootout are upon us. If you've never had the pleasure of attending the Cutter's Ball, it's a party thrown by Handsome Cycles proprietors Jesse Erickson and Ben Morrison in conjunction with One on One Bicycle Studio while much of the cycling industry is in Minneapolis for the Frost Bike trade show. Last year, the Handsome Boys and One on One let us crash with the very first Shop Bike Shootout. What's a Shop Bike Shootout? Well friend, we're glad you asked:

    A few months ago, Chrome took over the lease at Handsome Cycles, so there's a new name on the door, but the partying and inevitable debauchery will continue. Throw on your coveralls and chopper mitts and stop by our MPLS HUB and One on One for the best Cutter's Ball and Shop Bike Shootout yet!
