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.

Our inventory is constantly changing. So if the bike you're looking for has sold or isn't available check back later!

Reeb Sqweeb V2 Aluminum 29er enduro mountain bike

The REEB Sqweeb is the bike of choice for MTB legend Jeff Lenosky. 

[product-block handle="2020-reeb-sqweeb-v3-m"/]

REEB Cycles was born after the founder the Oskar Blues Brewery decided he didn’t want to buy another bike-in-a-box made somewhere overseas. 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.

Check out our visit to the REEB barn to see how it designs and builds bikes.

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.

Parlee Cycles - Road and gravel

Parlee Z-ZeroA Z-Zero built using Parlee's tube joining process which is similar to carbon lugged construction. 

[product-block handle="parlee-z-zero-custom-road-bike-2013-x-large"/]

Parlee Cycles has always been renowned for ride quality as founder Bob Parlee insists every bike bearing his name must feel smooth and comfortable, but also lively and responsive when you get on the gas. While popular monocoque models like the Altum, RZ7, and Chebacco are made overseas, the carbon-lugged Z series (Z-Zero, Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, Z5) bikes are or were built in Beverly, Massachusetts. The key here is to look for lugs in the frame and "Z" in the model name.

Rock Lobster Cycles - Road, gravel, CX, track, MTB

Rock Lobster Cyclocross bike

A race-ready Rock Lobster cyclocross bike.

Rock Lobster bikes are handmade in Santa Cruz, California by Paul Sadoff. There's no production line at Rock Lobster.

His frames have been ridden at the Olympics and at world championship cyclocross and mountain bike events around the world.

Squid Bikes - CX, track, MTB, BMX

Squid Squidcross singlespeed

This Squidcross has "custom" paint that pops. 

[product-block handle="2020-squid-squidcross-single-speed-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. 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!

Our Ride Guides love helping people find the right bike and gear. If you have any questions, give us a call at 1-866-401-9636 and we'll help you out!
