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.

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.
I just left FL, if i was there I'd post pics of my Kestrel KM40, Klein, Zipp and Trek 2200! All made in USA

KonAaron Snake 10-15-12 02:38 PM

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.

calamarichris 10-15-12 02:55 PM

Made right here in Carlsbad, just down the street from where I now live.

Oh man, I'll have to wrangle up some pictures later, but I have: '93 Dean, '91 Ted Wojcik, 97' Vicious Cycles, 49' Columbia, and a 37' Peerless.

America, F'NA.

oldskoolwrench 10-15-12 03:05 PM

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)...

The majority of my bicycles are built in the USA.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

My newest Chris Kvale.

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

KonAaron Snake 10-15-12 04:05 PM

The Waterford and Kvale above would make my top 10 of this forum list.

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.

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?).
