Sierra Nevada founder and owner Ken Grossman, 63, recently completed California’s infamous bike tour, the Death Ride, with his coworkers. He thought it’d be “fun”, mentioned it to his team at one of their Town Hall dinners, and found 10 folks willing to jump in on the 1 day, 5 peaks, 127 miles and 15,000 feet of climbing on a ride through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Oh, and it starts at 4am.
Dustin Klein gives us an inside look at the process and steps required to create a run of hand painted Chrome Barrage Backpacks that will be sewn in the Chrome Hubs. Each Bag is unique and very limited, and he had to paint 100 of them! Want one? They’re only available through Chrome’s stores worldwide, not online.
