Standert continues to evolve its stainless steel Erdgeschoss gravel bike to be better equipped for everything from weekend gravel rides to limitless bikepacking adventures. This latest generation again increases tire clearance, adds customizable front-to-rear geometry and additional dynamo routing…
Standert Erdgeschoss Stainless Steel Adventure Gravel Bike
Standert’s Erdgeschoss gravel & bikepacking brings just a few fairly simple updates to the already popular stainless steel bike, designed to take your adventures further. This evolution aims to give riders more options for larger tires, without compromising the proven ride of the bike. So it adds customizable geometry adjustments to allow riders to switch from bigger tires to smaller tires while preserving the feel of the bike.
Up front, the geo switch is handled by the Columbus Futura Cross+ carbon fork which has a toggle chip at the axle with a 47 or 52mm offset. This way, for example, you can ride an everyday setup with 700c x 42mm tires and a 52mm offset for fast gravel, then switch to smaller diameter but plusher 650b x 2 tires. ″ and a 47mm offset for more off-road adventures—both with nearly identical Trail forks for familiar handling.
At the rear, Standert switched to a sliding dropout (like, but not the Paragon style) which gives the option of extending the wheelbase by up to 20mm. This modular-style dropout also offers plenty of flexibility, as owners could always configure the bike in the future as a singlespeed or even switch to a different axle mount standard.
The dropout and fork changes also come with more overall tire clearance, now officially up to 650b x 54mm / 700c x 50mm.
A final upgrade is the improved dynamo lighting integration. Now the Futura Cross+ fork includes internal routing inside the fork leg, but Standert is also giving the Erdgeschoss internal frame routing to connect a dynamo powered tail light directly mounted to a new tab at the top of the seatstay .
The actual geometry of the Erdgeschoss is unchanged (in the short chainstay, taller offset position), still available in Standert’s seven stock sizes, 48-60cm, with Project Compact redesigned on the three smaller bikes.
Frame features a straight head tube for a recessed tapered steerer, 1x/2x/mechanical/electronic compatible modular internal cable routing, T47 bottom bracket shell, flat mount disc brake, 12″ thru axles mm and a standard 27.2 mm seat post.
Claimed frame weight is 1980g (54cm), plus 535g for the Columbus bikepacking fork.
The gravel bike is equipped with 3 cage mounts on the downtube and seat tube, 3 mounts on each fork leg, as well as a regular pair of bosses under the downtube and on top of the top tube . The frame and fork are also ready for racks and full-coverage mudguards.
