Just your Standard 20OS

Posted: January 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

Change is in the air and is a new tire size one of them? For Vet Pro Chris Williams it’s looking that way. 

 
Chris is around 5 inches shorter than Damien Lacombe, but rides a long frame. He started looking into the 20OS wheels last year. His sponsor, STANDARD Bicycles built him up this new ride.

The frame is built off Chris’ current 20 frame and fork. They just changed it a little to accommodate the bigger wheels and adjusted the geometry a just touch. 

In order to get it as close as possible to his 20, Standard also made some new bars. Again just making little adjustments to get it all dialed in.

I took a few cranks on this beast and it felt really good. Didn’t notice the wheel size difference. I did notice the extra two inches in top tube length and 182 Profile Elite cranks. 

I don’t know own if this 20OS will be the way of the future, but if it is, STANDARD Bicycles and Chris Williams will be on the pointy end of the trend.
