BMX News spent a day at the Standard Byke Co. factory in Iowa this week, where we saw how frames go from a pile of tubing to race ready. A big part of the visit was hanging out with SBC founder, Rick Moliterno as a prelude to our interview with him that will accompany the factory tour.
Rick has been part of every aspect of our sport–from local hotshoe, to national-threat am, to pro. He got his first taste of the bike business as manager of Bike & Hike, a bike shop in Rock Island, IL. Not long after winning his first AA Pro national (Waterford Oaks, 1984), he crossed the great divide in BMX, and changed from racer to freestyler. As part of the touring Hutch and Haro teams of the time, he traveled entertaining crowds around the world. When BMX cooled off in the early 90s, Rick decided to blaze his own trail, and create a “rider owned and operated” company, Standard Byke Company.
In this 8-minute preview to the interview and photo gallery we will post on Monday, Rick talks about how the name “Standard” came about, how the company approaches “innovation,” and his beliefs on “Made in USA,” and why some of his products carry it and some don’t–even though everything is made here.
Here is Tony Cherry’s part from the Daily Grind DVD…. Why not grab a copy of the whole thing to keep and see the whole Daily Grind crew killing it?! Available at Zeal Dealers for just £4.99
