I'm thinking running some chrome parts but I've never owned any chrome before aside from race bars that ive had for a month.
I want alienation PBR's, DK Grey bars, and fit shiv2 forks, all in chrome.

Do any of you guys know of the advantages/disadvantages of a chrome in terms of how long the finish will last, or if it flakes easily?

Generally speaking chrome on rims is the only chrome that is likely to flake at some point.

I'm not a fan of chrome frames at all.. but chrome parts (bars, rims, cranks, etc.) look sick!!!

chrome is a coating over the metal
chrome flakes and peels
after that the steel is bare
which then causes the steel to rust
not the chrome

im posting my rust on my chrome kink badgers. and chrome is a metallic substance, therefore giving it the ability to corrode.

Im not using them to race. ive had black pbrs on my street bike for months and theyre awesome. less backsweep on dk grey race bars give you more control. its just a question of whether im going to get these parts in a chrome finish or not. If some of you guys would get back to your roots youd realize the whole sport was spawned from racing and is still much influenced by it. the fact that you bash on parts youve never had or on disciplines that youve never tried is ignorant and immature. IM GETTTING CHROME BEEEITCHES.
