Our classic 26" chromoly dirt jumper.

The Monk features our unique stainless steel horizontal dropout system for minimal complications with single-speed/disc brake setup. Our custom chain stays paired with dedicated DJ geometry offer you a light and incredibly stiff rear triangle on a low slung steel weapon.

The Monk now features our chain tug integrated into the dropout on both sides.

Almost all Chromag frames are made from quality 4130 chromoly steel tubing. Chromoly is an abbreviation for chromium-molybdenum indicating the materials that the steel is alloyed with.

The added chromium helps increase the steels hardenability and also provide some corrosion resistance.
The molybdenum helps to increase the toughness of the steel.

It has a high tensile strength but is also malleable which is what gives our frames their notorious ride quality and feel. Chromoly is often used when more strength is required than that of mild carbon steel.

It falls under the AISI (American Iron & Steel Institute) 41XX designations which is where the “41” comes from. The “30” indicates it contains approximately 0.30% carbon by weight.

Chromoly is much stronger than traditional 1020 steel and it has a higher strength to weight ratio and high tensile strength, which means we can use less material and achieve a product that can withstand the abuse that riders love to throw at it.

Head Tube Badge

Your bike is special. The head tube badge is the finishing touch so we’ve always made a point of taking the time to do something interesting with it. Our head tube badges have changed over the years and are an indication of the time each bike was made. Whether it’s a cast bronze, or polished stainless steel, water cut aluminum or a 3D CNC carving, each one represents our commitment to detail.

 Chromag Monk Headtube Badge


The Monk features horizontal dropouts, designed so you can run single speed without having to use a chain tensioner. They are also fully compatible with your disc brakes.

We leave them unpainted so your axle doesn't dig in and ruin the paint.

Gyro Tabs

The Monk comes with holes in the headtube ready to accept gyro tabs. If you like to throw the bars so much you run out of brake line, then having a gyro is key.

Simply the best!

For full disclosure I have been supported by Chromag for over a decade and have rode numerous iterations of the Monk over the entire span of that time.

My skatepark style of riding has always demanded the strongest parts on the market… I was lucky to get 6 months out of a frame from what were the go to brands at the time.

In 2013 i got my first Monk, and straight away you could tell the difference in quality and innovation - Chromag were one of the first to introduce oversized steerer tubes to Chromoly frames… key to increased strength right where it is needed.

I believe what truly sets the Monk apart from others is it’s stiffness - these frames are as robust as they come and you don’t loose your “pump” through flex.

Key features for me are the threaded bb… enabling you the choice of alloy / carbon mtb cranks, as well as chromoly BMX cranks (often preferred in the skatepark settings for the increased strength).
Furthermore, the built in chain tugs make bike maintenance much easier, and more importantly stop your rear wheel from slipping in the horizontal drop outs under load.

The monk has been my hardtail of choice right up to the pinnacle of my riding and I have never been left looking for more from a frame.

For reference in case you are unsure - I run a “short” for skatepark riding for improved agility. If i did more than the occasional stint of dirt jumping I would size up to a “long” for the increased stability at higher speeds.

(Vivid) Blue Steel is the Colour you Want and Need

The bike is 100% dialled, obviously. What you don’t know is that the studio photos make the Vivid Blue look like a baby blue, but in real life it looks awesome. Reminds me of the sky on a perfect bluebird day at the ski hill.


This is the best dirt jumper I’ve ever ridden! I love the geometry and the feel of the bike. It is also the easiest bike I’ve ever backflipped. Totally the king of dirt jumpers!

2023 Chromag Monk.

My son absolutely loves this bike. He likes the weight, the components and durability. He can huck this bike all over the dirt jumps. What's not to like? This bike is RAD!

Amazing Bike!

Just bought a monk and right away it felt like the best dirt jumper I've ever ridden! Not only does it come stock with the components that I would upgrade to on any other bike, but the sizing is perfect (I'm 5'9'' and ride a size long), and the paint job is sweet! An all-around great DJ! Super stoked on this ride!

The Best Complete DJ Bike

I recently purchased a complete Monk and I couldn’t be happier with it. Hopping on after building it up, it felt comfortable instantaneously. Chromag do an excellent job of getting the bike built, so only minor assembly was required (tires were even partially aired up!).

In my opinion, this is the nicest complete DJ bike you can buy. The stock components are what I would select if I was building this custom.

I spent time a lot of time researching DJ bikes and looking at all of the competitors bikes before purchasing this, while I may have paid a little more up front for this bike, I know I won’t be needing/wanting to change anything.

For reference, I have listed my height and size purchased below. I am totally happy with the sizing on this bike. To me, it feels perfect.

Height: 5’11”
Size Purchased: Long
