Today I remembered that I never did an “All My Bikes” drawing for my STA-L. Don’t tell my other bikes, but this one is my favorite. It was custom made for me by Standard Byke Co. in Davenport, Iowa! Support companies that make their products here, in the United States.
Last month, I drew all over a Standard Byke Co. STA bicycle frame for the Human Powered Works show in Boston. The magic of Facebook allowed Rick Moliterno, the owner of Standard, to see the photos of the frame. It turned out that he was really into what I had done. This was hugely exciting for me because I have been a big fan of his since the 90’s (for both his riding and products). After some emails back and forth I am now the proud owner of a custom Standard frame—and I couldn’t be anymore stoked. Standard is one of the few manufacturers still producing their products in the USA and I am proud to be riding one of their frames.
