Paul Osicka's Standard Tao frame was the first flatland-designed frame to forgo a standing platform, and its simplistic approach created a revolution in flatland frame design. "The Tao of Ground is a liberation from unnecessary obstructions, gimmicks, useless platforms, and elevated chainstays," read an ad for the Tao upon its release in 1996.
