Craft Bike Days 2022: Standert chainsaw

Standert builds racing bikes out of steel or aluminum and sells them through its own web shop and in the showroom on Friedrichstrasse in Berlin. At the Craft Bike Days 2022, the brand showed the prototype of its new Gravel Renner chainsaw. Here you can find initial information about the bike and the story of Standert.

Standert – steel and aluminum road bikes with character

The company was founded in 2012 by Max von Senger and his wife Anne, back then as a shop, café, meeting place for the scene and workshop. In 2014, the first complete bike from Standert was also available for purchase. What follows is a success story par excellence. Standert is involved in the local racing scene, builds bikes with a clear design language and high standards and quickly enjoys an excellent reputation among racing bike and gravel fans.

# Standert showed the new chainsaw at the Craft Bike Days 2022 – it is a prototype of an uncompromising gravel race bike and should be available from spring 2023.

So one step follows the other and after ten years, after a strong increase in personnel last year, 35 employees work for the Berlin steel forge. So it’s no wonder that there’s something to celebrate on December 10th for the company’s 10th anniversary in Berlin’s Friedrichstraße. “We have a few surprises in store for our customers for the anniversary party,” says Maxe Faschina, Product Manager at Standert, in an interview with our editorial team.

Steel and aluminum are the only materials that can be used for Standert frames. Company owner and designer Max von Senger loves the properties and appearance of metal and therefore prefers it. However, some frames are made in Asia and the rest are hand-welded in Italy. Standert focuses on the series production of racing bikes and Gravel Bikes and not made to measure. Nevertheless, one tries to do justice to all customers with many frame sizes.

Eight different models are currently on offer, plus the chain saw prototype that Standert presented at the Craft Bike Days 2022. This is a race Gravel Bike, which is scheduled to go on sale in spring 2023. Incidentally, the name says it all, because all performance-oriented bikes with aluminum frames at Standert bear the name of a saw. And that is derived from sawing up the opponents in the race, where the standert is supposed to help. In addition to the chainsaw, there is also a circular saw (road) and a jigsaw (cyclocross) in the competitive segment.

The aluminum frame comes with a chic finish and race geometry

The other Standert bikes also have anything but ordinary names. Any examples? “Pfadfinder” is a gravel bike, “Umlaufbahn” is the track bike from Standert and “Bürgermeister*in” is a versatile urban bike for touring handlebars with adjustable dropouts that can be used both with Bikepacking ready for big deeds as well as when shopping.

You can buy Standert bikes either in the showroom in Berlin or in their own web shop, where you can also order worldwide delivery. This is also used a lot, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that you also come across Standert Bikes in Australia or South America. The demand for lovingly manufactured and carefully constructed steel and aluminum racers is currently growing all over the world.

The special feature: The event is aimed at trade visitors, but thanks to the cooperation with the communities of MTB news and racing bike news, a broad audience can follow the spectacular bikes from the manufacturers and frame builders along with their exciting history. The bikes and their committed creators are portrayed in articles, videos and on the social media channels in detail and with great attention to detail.

This year, the supporting program also included discussions and workshops on topics such as 3D printing in bicycle production, new approaches in mountain bike geometry, aerodynamics on gravel bikes and advice for start-ups.
