Ross Bicycles

Ross bicycles continued in Allentown, PA until the early to mid 80's, they had reconfigured the factory to make ammo boxes for the US Gov. and outsourced bicycle production to Asia. The ammo box move proved disasterous, and the bike business ended up being sold to Rand Bicycle who in produces department store type bikes and still carries the Ross name on til this day. The Allentown built road bikes were probably there best. They were heavy, all were in the 30 pound range or more. Teh earlier Ross bikes were also imports and have a headbadge that states "Ross Import Division" NY
