Shaman Custom ReIssue
“In 1998 Standard debuted The Shaman, designed for flatland and street rider
Bobby Fisher. As demand for a frame like this died down, like the indian
medicine man namesake, the Shaman faded from memory into obscurity, but
still being praised by those die hard fans still riding them 10 years later.
That is until recently when Standard started the custom shop and were able
to do modern versions of our old frames for a growing contingent in the BMX
world that want a high quality custom frame. So, the order came through for
the rebirth of the Shaman with Integrated Head tube, Euro bb, welded on gyro
tabs, seat stay 990’s and 3/8″ thick 1/4″ dropouts which seemed normal
enough. But then the decision was made to go all out with a version with Mid
bb with 14mm dropouts and adding this to the available custom line.
The first versions are built and plans for more, plus the internet buzz over
some twittered spy photos have got everyone saying that they have seen Bobby
Fisher and he is amazed at the response that we are getting from this
rebirth of the Shaman.
