Joel Schallhorn on Standard Bykes!

Great news in from Joel Schallhorn, read the official press release right here! Standard have a big history in flatland. Great to see them back supporting a rider. It will be interesting to see what they come up with!

Long time supporter of all things BMX and freestyle, Standard Bykes is pleased to announce that we have signed pro flatland rider Joel Schallhorn as the newest member of the Standard Bykes Team! Joel will be the newest enlistee into the Standard Army and continue a long history of some of the best flatland riders ever to ride. A history of riders that at one time included such names as Paul Osicka, Chad Degroot, Chris Young, Bobby Fisher, Phil Dolan, Trevor Meyer, Lee Musselwhite, Dylan Worsley and countless others. Joel will be the first flatland rider on the Standard Bykes Team since Paul Osicka and will be working with Standard to design and produce a flatland frame and other parts in the coming months.

“I’m psyched that I will be riding for Standard Bykes! It’s an honor to ride for such a legendary company! I’d like to thank Rick Moliterno for giving me this opportunity. I’m really looking forward to working with Rick to create some new flatland products. This is just the beginning for some great things! I’d also like to thank everyone else who has supported me along the way.”

“We are really excited to have Joel on board as a new flatland rider. We love flatland and have some great stuff we will be working on over the next year. We can’t wait to get started!” ~ Rick Moliterno.

Currently Joel will be riding a stock Standard Bykes 250L frame with two piece Standard Strip Bars from our street/park line while Standard and Joel work together to design a flatland specific frame along with other flatland components.

A welcome edit is, of course, forth coming. Look for the Standard Army to invade the flatland arena in the next coming year with Joel Schallhorn leading the onslaught at contests and jams. Welcome to the team Joel!

  1. .Awesome! Standard was a welcome and generous supporter of our latest Fracas comp, and yes they are psyched on flatland!! great news

  2. good to see standard coming back to flatland. been a long time away and they always make top quailty products so look forward to seeing what comes from this.

  3. This is really cool news. Joel has deserved a big sponsor for a while now, and I can’t wait to see what Standard contributes in the way of flatland components with his input.

  4. for the record the SBC list of past flatland riders includes a few heavy hitters that deserve props! Bill Nitchke, Pete Brandt, Andrew Arroyo, Jesse Puente, Chase Gouin, Kerry Gatt, and Andrew Burleson come to mind.

  5. Agreed with all the comments. With their reputation as a high quality brand, it’ll be interesting to see what eventuates. And it has been a looong time coming. I sometimes wondered what happened to Bobby Fisher, as l haven’t heard or read anything about him in probably over 10 years.
