Zack Gerber has been through a lot of changes over the past few months, and got a new bike built up, so it was high time for Vital to catch up with him and see how everything is going these days. Click here to get up to date!
Standard is inviting everyone into their factory/warehouse. Here’s the info:
“Come on over and check out our open house/factory/warehouse for the the second SBC open house this year being held in conjunction with the Midwest National in East Moline and it is a great chance to come over and hangout, see how Standard products are made, check out the “factory”, the ramps, buy a tshirt or custom BMX frame and watch weldmaster Steve do handstand pushups with on the rusted out bumper of an F250! Rain or shine, after the last moto on Saturday, head on over to the Standard Byke Company. This year, see the expanded hall of sbc product fame, production frames in progress to see how it all works and lots of extras. For additional info, stop by the SBC pit area at the race or RSVP to the invite on Facebook.”
This is pretty rad. Tazz Hernandez recently spent some time at the Standard warehouse filming for these three quick commercials that give you a look around. If there’s one thing BMX could use more of these days, it’s Standard having a bigger presence in BMX again. Maybe this is the calm before the storm?
BMX News took a trip to Standard Byke’s headquarters to take a look at their facilities, and see the frame building process happen from raw tubing to a finished product. He also later got on the phone and did an interesting interview with Rick Moliterno about how Standard started and where he’s looking to take it now. See and hear it all here.
There’s a lengthy interview with Joe Rich up on the Collateral about the legendary Lengthy frame from Standard. This one is definitely for the older guys. Check it out!
