Chuck

Chuck made some fabulous and expensive aluminum monocoque frames. They went out of business last year to concentrate on the RCR line of shocks. RCR has since morphed into Romic. More management changes than bars in Old Strathcona.



CR HT - The more I look at this bike, the more saddened I am that Chuck has halted production. It just looks like a ton of fun to ride.


CR FS - The very impressive Chuck CR-FS. An Aluminum monocoque frame, and what looks like square section tubes in the rear are actually more monocoques. This one is really nicely set-up; Magura hydraulics, Marzocchi Z.1, and an XTR drivetrain.


CR FS - This is Jack's Chuck. Chuckasaurus. XTR, RaceFace, Hope discs and hubs, and the amazing Stratos FR-4. In 10 plus years of riding, I haven't seen many bikes better than this one. [edit] Jack is Jack in the Box, founding member of TeamCow.

Hi,
That red CR-FS of mine in the above picture still looks as good in real life. One of the most beautiful bikes I've ever laid eyes on and rides like a dream. I was riding it here in Victoria a couple of days ago in fact. Although, it currently has a air shock - soon to be swapped out for a NOS Fox Vanilla RC. The original RCR blew out one day long ago. Was kinda surprised and pleased to see the picture. I remember the day I took it. Hope all is well.

tony rivera :

i have no idea. all these pics came from ebay, mtbr.com classifieds, and wherever else i could find pics of bikes.

i never bothered to ask permission because 98% of the bikes were up for sale and therefore about to change hands. i didn't know who to ask permission, and i didn't really see how it mattered anyway.

thanks for the comment!
