Way back at the end of 2018, I went to visit Dan Stanton at Stanton Bikes to check out his new business plans, and a new piece of kit that was going to let them start making hardtails here in the UK. Sitting Dan down to chat on video, he admitted to being uncomfortable and inexperienced at being on camera, but forgot his nervousness as he set about explaining his plans for the future.
Fast forward to half way through 2021, throw a global pandemic in the middle of things (not in the business plan), and it’s been quite a journey for Stanton Bikes – and Dan. Who would have thought that many of the long term supply and transport issues Dan was seeking to address would have been catapulted forward in the timeline thanks to Covid, shipping container madness, and a huge surge in demand for bikes?
Clearly having overcome his camera shyness, Dan brings you this update. They’re catching up with orders, they have stock on the shelves, and they’re still plotting some surprises around the corner.
Are you going to grab a stock frame, or wait a little patiently for something in that special colour? Or will you wait to see what this secret something is that Dan’s got up his sleep? ‘About to hit the stratosphere’… are they building a rocket? Launching a satellite? Is Dan the bike industry’s Richard Branson and he’s undertaking a record breaking hot air balloon attempt?
Head over to Stanton Bikes to get shopping, or to the comments for a bit of debate over what you might want to buy.
