Chrome, new bags and lead sponsor of CMWC in Chicago

Is there really a cycling apparel company that does it all the way Chrome messenger bags does? I mean, not only banging out decades of solid merchandise from head to toe, but representing hard core urban riders like Ed Wonka and putting on a multitude of killer events for local bike communities where they have set up shop.

Yes, they,ve also given me some great free stuff lately so I love them even more.

It’s been hard to keep up with Chrome Industries lately as they just unleashed a whole new line of bags.
Like the Delta:

Weatherproof flap pack with ballistic nylon bottom panel
Wide mouth opening main compartment designed to fit 12-pack or large books and binders

Industrial strength Velcro accessory shoulder mounting straps
Organization pockets for smartphone, and personal items
Internal d-ring key loop

Fit:

Ergonomic shoulder strap design
Sternum strap for load distribution
Industrial metal cam lock under arm compression buckles

Fabrication:

Weatherproof 600 denier TPU coated Cordura outer shell

Here’s Wonka rockin his bag:

and the District:

This is the District bag Chrome sent me, more on that later.

But enough about the gear…over in London…as dudes in the pool break records…


another major sporting event will attract the world’s greatest athletes, and certainly something is bound to get broken…non other than the Cycle Messenger World Championships (CMWC) which is set to go off this weekend, in Chicago. That’s right, the world’s top cycle couriers are flocking to Chicago to see who is the fastest on two wheels.

Chrome is the signatory sponsor of the mayhem and opening registration will begin Friday night at the Chrome Chicago store (1529 N Milwaukee Ave)

Chrome will be throwing events all weekend, BBQ, alleycat and a Familia lead welcome ride by their own Squid from Cyclehawk couriers from NYC.

“We are stoked to be involved in the CMWC again this year. The venue, the organization staff, and the athletes are going to make it a year to remember. This is where we started and where we will stay; supporting the most epic athletes in the world.” Steve McCallion, President of Chrome Industries.

But no need to wait until Friday…Chicago’s own Tiny Fix Bike Gang, is hosting a welcome alleycat and BBQ on Wednesday, 8/1/12.
