Stop the presses: a 26″ custom Trail Boss

29 07 2014

Hot damn…this is one awesome looking bike.

Standard Bykes built up this custom 26″ Trail Boss for artist Chris Piascik and featured it a short while ago on their Facebook feed.

I’m actually kinda speechless about this bike, I’m digging on it so hard.

I don’t have all the particulars on it, geo-wise, but Standard has said in the comments regarding this bike that:

If we get a few guys into ordering these we’ll do a “stock” run of them…which means regular stock pricing!

Stock pricing? This bike is getting more tempting by the minute.

I have to stop looking at the picture.

Looks like a volume sledgehammer.

A friend of mine got a custom 26″ bmx from Standard a couple of years ago–they did the low top tube race look on that one. For this one, I guess part of the Trail Boss is look is the higher stand over. I wonder how it compares to the Volume Sledgehammer or Buddy’s STOUT Beelzebike?

Hah! I just saw Buddy’s comment after I posted that!!

The geometry is very similar to the Volume. I had a Hessian and I liked the way it rode. I just made a few subtle tweaks to this one.
