    A bit about us

    Welcome to our new website. We've spent a lot of time re-designing the site, listening to what you want and making the whole experience better. 

    You will notice that we use actual stock levels so you know when it's in stock and when it isn't. We have a fully integrated live stock system that handles stock from in store and online from one central database - plus we have live stock information from our key suppliers that allows you to see beyond what we have here within these four walls. This all helps to reduce the times you have to get an email to say what you ordered isn't available. 

    We know you're always looking for the latest stuff, so we work hard on bringing you hottest new stuff first. Available to order now with availability dates so you can place a Pre Order and get it before anyone else. 

    Our new Checkout process allows you to check out by creating an account, signing in to an existing account (your account from our previous site will still work), a "Guest" checkout so you don't need to create an account, lastly you can just Express Checkout with Paypal. 

    Finally our new shipping options allow you greater control on how your order is delivered with realistic delivery times - so you'll know when you'll get it. You get despatch and tracking information (when available) with all orders.

    Last of all if you have any questions, email sales@alansbmx.com or just call us on 01942 826598.

    If you have time please do some Reviews of the products you have used on here. 

    Thanks again for checking us out.

    Standard STA Resto

    Our buddy SNAV69 has been working on some Mid School projects for us. The brief was to keep the bikes as original as possible using period parts with an emphasis on how the bike would have actually been ridden in period rather than a Factory fresh build. Anyway I’ll hand you over to Paul now:

    sta11068738_10204926710000477_365493205_o

    This is part 1 of a 3 part bike restoration I have been doing for Alan. Alan has had this lying around for quite some time and on a few occasions I have asked him to sell me it (and another one I'm doing) but we have never come to an agreement lol.


    A quick foreword about Standard Byke Company, The company was set up by Ex Haro factory rider Rick Moliterno after offering to redesign Haro bikes due to him breaking a frame ever few weeks due to his aggresive riding on the streets and in skateparks, Haro said Yeah you can redesign our bikes but we're not paying you so he said he didn't want to ride for Haro no more as was going to set up his own company. He hooked up with Kurt Schmidt and started the company in November of 91.

    This is a Standard Byke's S.T.A from approx 1994, it is a 1" headtube and 10mm dropouts which indicates an early one. When I got the frame, fork, bars, stem, levers, headset, front and rear brakes and crank it wasn't in bad condition just full of surface rust that took me 3 days to remove and wore my thumb nail down to nowt. I them set about cleaning up the bars and stem and regreasing the headset bearings. I wanted to build it up with era correct Mid School parts and although I had some things in stock I had to buy in a seatpost, tyre and rims, once the rims landed I took the hubs and spokes I already had in stock and built up the wheels which turned out pretty nice with the black tyres for a stealthy look.


    I had an old 3pc crank I wasn't using which I married up to a 44t chainring and bashguard as everyone was grinding back then as now so wanted to keep it as authentic as possible. I then fitted the wheel and added some NOS pegs that again I had in stock and not being used. I then fitted the stem, bars and levers and added some new bars ends to tidy them up,  then fitted an old 1" Gyro then dialled in the brakes front and rear, front being a pain as it's a potts mod and had to squeeze past a 10mm brake spindle.


    Then I fitted a Hoffman seatclamp that I had to buy in and a seatpost that I connected to a freestyle seat and once I was happy with the angle and height I tightened them up. Once I had wiped all the greasy marks off the chrome and gave it a quick polish I stood back and admired what I had done and I think I nailed it on the head.

    Here's a rundown of components :-
    Standard STA Frame and Forks
    Tioga Beartrap Headset
    Powerlite Freestyle Handlebars
    ODI Longneck Grips and Bar Ends
    TNT Freestyle Stem
