I can attest to the statement of John E. and a few others regarding very nice mid and high end Ross bicycles circa 1983-1985. There was a Shimano 600 equipped Signature Triathlon model with a Columbus SL frame. The Paragon had a Ishiwata 024 frame with SunTour Superbe derailleurs. There was a Mt. McKinley with Tange MTB tubing and deore XT. During this era, Ross also sponsored an ATB team, the Ross Indians. I believe there was also a road team, but I have no objective evidence.

1983 ads mention that Ross has been, "building cycling machines for American cyclists for 36 years". So it would appear that the first Ross bicycles were 1947.
