Byline Sponsor Finance (“BSF”), a division of Byline Bank, announced that it has provided financing to support The Zabel Companies (“Zabel”) in its investment in Stan’s Performance Products dba Stan’s NoTubes (“Stan’s NoTubes”). BSF was represented by Duane Morris, LLP.

Headquartered in Big Flats, New York, Stan’s NoTubes brought to market the first tubeless conversion kit for bikes in 2001, removing the traditional innertube from bike tires. Since then, Stan’s NoTubes has continued to innovate within the marketplace and broaden its product offering. Stan’s NoTubes is an industry leader in producing sealant, wheels and other cycling components and accessories. The brand is now one of the most recognizable names in mountain biking and the broader cycling markets.

“We are happy to partner with Zabel and to support their investment in Stan’s NoTubes. The company was at the forefront of the tubeless tire movement and has established itself as a key player in the mountain biking market. We are excited to back Zabel and the strong management team of Stan’s NoTubes and to aid in their growth going forward,” said Dan Delgadillo, Managing Director and Co-Head of Byline Sponsor Finance.
