Hold Fast - Built With Pride in the USA

Hold Fast

When Jim Morrison sang "keep your eyes on the road and your hands up on the wheel," he forgot to tell us what to do with our feet. Okay, so the Lizard King wasn't riding a bicycle, but I had to lead this post off with something and that's the first thing that popped into my head.

But I digress.

Baltimore, Maryland-based Hold Fast thinks you should keep your feet on the pedals.

The Hold Fast FRS (Foot Retention System) is a patent-pending advancement that provides an alternative to traditional toe clips and clipless pedals, and is a major improvement in terms of adjustability, comfort, durability, performance and style. Having been embraced by riders of all styles, Hold Fast is for all cyclists looking for a secure and comfortable ride. Made with pride in the USA.

You read that right, my bicycle-riding friends, right here in the United States of America.

We manufacture our products entirely in the USA, from parts sourced in the USA. Every one of our products is handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in the USA. It's just another way we are helping America move forward.

Hold Fast believes so strongly in this, as we all should, that they've posted the Top Ten Reasons to Buy American Made Products on their website.

100% Pure Awesome.




The 411 on StickerGiant HQ

The whole purpose of the StickerGiant blog is to share sticker stories. To date, this has pretty much been focused on our customers. We love the fascinating variety of businesses and individuals who come to us, again and again, for their sticker needs. Thanks, guys!

Turns out, we get as shy as a freshman at a Sadie Hawkins when talking about ourselves. Room for improvement! Which is why every Friday, we're going to use this space to tell a little bit of our story.

So, to begin: Here's a picture of one of several giant telephone posts we had to install out back* to beef up our power supply. Of course, we've plastered it with stickers! (Like this exhibit in Australia, stickers seem to bring out the kid in all of us).

And for those of you still reading, a few facts about StickerGiant:

  • We employ more than a dozen people from the community.

  • We deliver outstanding customer service and a quality product.

  • We rely on alternative energy and buy from suppliers who do, too.

  • We are active members of our hometown of Hygiene, Colorado (elev. 5,095 feet).

*Don't be fooled by the pole-barn appearance! Sure it's modest, but so was Patagonia's first office and look at what they've accomplished. We've already come a long way from our days in a basement. But that's another story....stay tuned!
