1995 Standard Lengthy

1995 Standard Lengthy

Note:Polanco, please get up a full shot of the frame smile  Can't see the rear dropouts.

really comfy vert and jumping bike

I got this frame in 1995,as a prize in a contest in NY,courtesy of Twin's bike shop(YOUNG,R.I.P.),originally it was a darker red,but I had it painted bright red,guess it had been the same color for too long.I had some years off the vert ramp,and decided last week this would be my vert bike again.Even though it is assembled totally different from how I used to ride it,in 1995,or in 2003 which is when I last used it,it's still comfy.I set it up with heavier later 90,early 00' s parts,in part to use the components,and to improve my pumping and altitude when I eventually lighten it up a bit.

Re: 1995 Standard Lengthy

congratulation!  smile
did you bore out the head tube to 1 1/8"? i just got your old lengthy back from the sandblaster today, all dents and grind marks have been welded up so it's as good as new. next stop, fresh powder. the last time i talked to Rick about getting some decals he mentioned having about 100 of these still, could you imagine? big_smile


"This should be a no brainer guys. If you think the wife would disagree with the bike/price tell her "Honey, I bought this for you. I LUUVVVV you...". And then proceed to put it with your other bikes and tell her she can never ride it. lol"

Re: 1995 Standard Lengthy

I always wanted a Lengthy but ended up with an S&M HAF (no regrets). I did eventually get a standard (STA) and went through quite a few of them. Nice ride. Your pics make me want to ride again! Good job.


I'm looking for a Mid-90's Standard Lengthy (Platform frame from 95-98). Contact me thru PM.
