All along the High Tower

We’re all about big setups here, so when we came across this custom build by Pedal Driven Cycles we were stoked!

You’re looking at an American-made 23.5″ top tube, 22″ wheel frame…yowza!

Peep these specs:

  • 74.5° head tube
  • 71° seat tube
  • 23.5 top tube
  • 14-14.7″ chain stay
  • 12.25 bottom bracket
  • 10″ stand over

Definitely a big bike for a big dude.

Built up for Matt Stahl (who has since dubbed it “The Hightower”) this frame probably has got a lot of bigger guys scratching their chins and contemplating going the custom route.

I know it has for me!

Have a peek at it all put together.

Looks so dialed!

Twin top tube 22 deserves a double take

Standard Bykes have a long history of churning out nice looking custom frames.

With that being said, this beauty might be one of the best.

We’re talking twin top tubes, a beautiful chrome finish and it’s built for 22″ wheels.

Talk about drool-worthy.

I think a lot of people that were about to pull the trigger on a 22″ frame might now be reconsidering their original choice and giving Standard a call.

And really, who could blame them?
