  • Chrome Customs: A Visit to Our Chico Factory.

    We took a trip to visit the Chrome Crew at our Chico California factory.
    Every Chrome Customs Barrage, Citizen, and Mini Metro are made one-at-a-time, by hand in this factory by people who take a lot of pride in what they do and the products we make. We're stoked they do it so well. Build you own Chrome Customs Bag online or stop by one a Chrome Customs Station at any of our seven HUBs and say hello to your local Chrome Bag Maker.

    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!

Word on the street is the One Show Founder, Mr. See See Motorcycles Thor Drake, only plans on doing 10 shows, so this Feb. 13-15 we put on our extreme party pants and got to work making No. 6 the best One yet. Three days of motorcycles, mini bike races, friends and Dirty Needles ... Embroidery that is. Continue reading

  • Chrome Seattle HUB: Sprint Wrestle

    There is something to be said about the kind of person who competes merely for glory, and that something is "bad ass". There were no points or promise of a hefty purse, just mad street cred for the victor. Our friends at MotoFish opened a coffee bar in our Chrome Seattle HUB and we welcomed them into our hearts with a night of friendly competition; a night of Sprint Wrestle.
