    Let's see your "Made in USA" road, touring, and mtb bikes!

    My Serotta Colorado LT workmanship rivals any Italian, French, Austrian, English or any high quality European made bikes!









    My Kestrel 4000 monocoque carbon fiber was the first made in the world (Made in the USA) and others are just far eastern cookie cuters.







    My Trek 8500 mtb made in the USA, the Manitou II Fork (correction brought to my attention by ftwelder, thank you) Made in the USA.







    Proud to be an American!

    Thanks, Mike

    My IF, Fat Chance, Klein, Bill Boston, WTB Phoenix, new Trek cross bike and my fiance's Can-of-ale are all made in the US....I would love to have my hands on that Serotta though. Lugged steel Serotta and a ti Serotta are definitely on the short list. Hell, I wouldn't turn down a Meivici either...

    Second hand American built frames are often as nice or nicer than many of the big European and Japanese names and can usually be had for very reasonable prices.

    Thank YOU Mike. I love that Serotta, specially with Campy group.

    As is no surprise to anyone, huge +1 to 4ring and Gioscinelli; the US stuff is fantastic, and often more under the radar. I also agree whole heartedly about Serotta...I've wanted to get rid of it because of duplication, but it just rides so darn nicely. It's a really fantastic bike.

    I'll post some apple pie American bike photos later.

    Posted them too many times (and taking up bandwidth, too)!

    I do have them listed in my Signature (you can tell which ones they are)...

    My Waterford, brazed by Dave Wages. I love the way it looks and the way it rides.

    My old Colorado II, probably from 1991. It rides very nicely, I wish I had a better photo.

    I've posted pictures of most of these before (numerous times) so I'll try to find some new pictures....and apologies in advance for the terrible quality of most of these pictures. Old iphone camera is bad enough, combine that with a scratched/hazy lens and my unsteady hand...well the results speak for themselves.

    IF

    Fat Chance (sorry no good pics of this one)

    Klein (on loan to a buddy) and the WTB Phoenix

    Bill Boston (currently being upgraded with new brakes/levers/bar tape...new pics soon)

    Trek X01 (under construction, don't worry the PVC spacers are only there until I get a new hacksaw blade!)

    I guess my French love affair has just about ended. (And frankly, thank goodness for that... just a little too high maintenance.)

    Four "Made in US of A" bikes grace my collection at the moment: 1966 Paramount, 1972 Paramount, 1989 Paramount, and my 2012 Boulder Brevet.

    I love that photo of your IF - it looks like a two wheeled panther slowly and stealthily stalking it's prey (perhaps a Gazelle?).

    Late 80's Stowe Criterium, made in Rochester NY.


    1990 Cannondale Black Lightning


    1984 Trek 610


    Couple oddballs-

    1994 Merckx Titanium AX


    MAYBE (think these were cinelli branded fisher backstock)
    1991 Cinelli Ottomila


    Also have a 1994 Hyper Metro BMX, a FBM Stairmaster BMX and a FBM Sword fixed.

    Had a couple in the past as well-

    1996 Cannondale r800


    1995 Specialized S-Works Team
