Matt Tanner - Carmel, IN
Matt’s love for bikes and speed dates back to growing up in his hometown of Anderson riding BMX and Mountain Bikes.
Under the direction of Tom Danielson, a former Tour de France World Tour Pro, Matt has developed to become a formidable cyclist who has raced competitively all over the world. In July 2022, Matt will be competing in a 125 mile gravel race in Iceland called The Rift.
Despite all of Matt’s accomplishments on the bike, it’s what he’s been able to do off the bike that is even more impressive. Matt along with his wife, Chris, co-founded Rollfast Cycling Club, an all inclusive club of cyclists from different backgrounds and skill levels whose mission is to advocate for cycling rights, safety, and mental health.
Matt has been hugely instrumental in helping build the cycling community in Indiana, and we are thrilled to have him on Team STS!
I believe in this bike
I don't give reviews or endorse products unless I fully believe in them. 5 stars or no stars. When working on the GRVL KLR project with STS, I used all my resources and industry contacts finding the perfect geometry for my style of riding. I race this bike and believe in the STS brand.
Made in the USA!
The STS crew is based in the Midwest near wear I grew up. Having a bike made in the USA is something that I take great pride in!
Relationships, not transactions
When I was shopping for my first gravel bike, I really needed advice from experienced people to tell me what I needed. The STS crew took their time and assessed my needs. I'm now loving my EXPLR and riding all over the back roads of Texas.
As a veteran road cyclist, I wanted a bike that could perform. The GRVL KLR checked all the boxes and the steel construction gives me confidence that the frame won't be damaged like a carbon model could with the chunky gravel in my area.
