Staats started producing frames in 1995. The goal was to build stronger and lighter frames. The first Staats frame was a mini cruiser frame and even after six years of abuse, it was still winning Nationals! Staats frames are very manoeuvrable, durable and lightweight. From day one, Staats frames was a success and Staats BMX was quickly approached by the Answer Racing Team, and they started to build frames for top-riders such as Mike Day and Bubba Harris. It didn't take long before everyone on the Answer team rode a Staats frame. STAATS BICYCLES was born!
