I was at a cookout this past weekend, watching my kiddos play with a pack of kids, when out of nowhere I hear someone say, “I am pretty sure that there are no more bicycles made in the United States”. My ears perked up. As you know, I have a special talent for finding “Made in USA”.
I turn around and behind me is my hubby and a new friend in deep discussion about mountain bikes and road bikes. They each brought up a couple of company names, and agreed that those companies had moved overseas or no longer existed (they were correct). They could not think of any American bicycle makers. Of course, I was suddenly obsessed and when I got home I began my search for bicycles made in the USA. Here is what I found.
