That's because of rule #26 of the Velominati, keepers of the cog: "Cranks never at 90 or 180 degrees."

Rule #26 also states - "putting the chain on the big dog" Eek

Rule #26 was updated to #29, for these modern times Smile

I love Stanton's frames, but I can't stand their stickers on the bars/downtube/seat tube etc. Makes a beautiful frame look like a cheap POS.

Yeh decals ruin that one for me. Get rid of the downtube decal and change the others from white to black and it would be perfect.

Ah didn't see that...

Yeah also rim decals, frame decals, fork decals... Easy fixes, though!

Imagine, instead of decals on that steel frame, they leave the "stanton" logo un-finished raw steel and let rust create the brown lettering.

Total gimmick..... But such a sick idea!!

I saw an episode of Wheeler Dealers where they used a grinder to fire red hot sparks at a stensil on a truck window, which embedded and rusted after time. I've always wondered if it would work on paint.

I’m a big Stanton fan but totally agree about the down tube decals...spoils a lot of their frames IMO, however just FYI the decals are custom with multiple options so the purchaser of this frame may well have spec’s that decal.
