Products made in America are getting rare, especially when it comes to bikes. Don’t despair! There are still brave revolutionaries out there — small independent builders keeping the American-made bike industry alive.

Many cyclists dream about owning an American-made bike but sometimes it can take months or years to get a bike built. Buying pre-owned is one way to get an American-made bike at a great price, right now. Let's take a look at some American bike builders that we currently carry at The Pro's Closet. If you are in Colorado and want to check out or test ride any of our American-made bikes in person, be sure to stop by our Louisville/Denver bike store.

Updated July 4th, 2023. Our inventory is constantly changing and I'm updating this list as bikes sell or new bikes get listed. If the bike you're looking for has sold or isn't available check back later!

Instead he started his own bike company (“REEB” is beer spelled backwards). Design and fabrication for their mountain and gravel bikes is all done in the 100 year old barn in Lyons, Colorado, where the brewery began.

Lynskey has been building titanium bikes in Chattanooga, Tennessee for 35 years. The bike-obsessed Lynskey family rose to prominence as the builders behind another legendary American brand, Litespeed. They sold Litespeed in 1999, but their passion for cycling remained strong until they finally returned with their namesake brand in 2005.

Sklar Bikes - MTB and gravel

For Sklar, beauty resides in curved top tubes. 

[product-block handle="2023-sklar-x-radavist-supersomething-apex-caliche-54cm"/]

Sklar bikes are instantly recognizable thanks to their distinctive curved top tube. But they aren't just good-looking, they're built with plenty of passion and attention to detail. Adam Sklar is a one-man team welding up his custom steel and titanium frames in Bozeman, Montana. The waitlist for his American-made bikes is long, (the less expensive, Taiwanese-made Super Something gravel bike is also available) but for many, these handmade beauties are well worth the wait. John Watson of The Radavist certainly loves them

Squid SO-EZ singlespeed

This SO-EZ singlespeed is ready for SSCXWC or your next urban assault. 

[product-block handle="2022-squid-so-ez-m"/]

Squid is the punk rocker of American bike builders. It gradually came into existence by building bikes for the grassroots cyclocross community in Northern California. At some point a group of "cyclocross miscreants" started spray painting bikes in their garages. Since then, unique home-brew paint jobs have become a key part of the Squid ethos. Grab a rattle can and go nuts!

Vintage bonus: Klein Bicycle Corporation

Klein AttitudeThe Klein Attitude was one of my boyhood dream bikes. 

This is one for the history buffs. In the '90s, Klein pioneered the use of large-diameter aluminum tubes, and Klein bikes were far ahead of their time with modern features like internal cable routing and press-fit bottom brackets. We have a few Kleins in our vintage bike museum and have been lucky to have more than a few available for sale. (Unfortunately, this one has sold!) They’re getting rare, so if you’re looking for one you’ll have to be patient.

There are plenty more great American builders not listed here. Who's missing. Who would you like to see us carry in the future? Let us know in the comments!
