After struggling about in the old premises for room, we made the choice to shuffle Stanton HQ to a bigger place in a location teeming with natural trail spots with miles and miles of quality singletrack. The new HQ is in a village called Tansley, one mile away from Matlock at the foot of the White Peak, just where the Derbyshire Dales meets the Peak. The new place isn’t too far from where we were before, but now we can literally step out the door and go ride on lunch breaks, etc.
We’ve still got quite a bit to do in the new unit, in particular the showroom, but as soon as we’re ready we’ll be inviting people to come see us and go for local rides. We’ll also be putting out a video to show you all exactly what the new place looks like, however right now we thought we’d put together a quick edit showcasing some of the riding we have on our doorstep. The person riding in the video is our new ‘local’ lad Olli Watson, national DH racer and ex CX champ. His weapon of choice for the vid was our Switchback 631, our 650b agro play bike, perfect for smashing long trail rides and the local DH spots.
