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 Cycles

Reeb Sqweeb V2 Aluminum 29er enduro mountain bike

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

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 Performance

Lynskey R300 titanium road bike for saleThe titanium Lynskey R300 is a forever bike. 

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

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

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.

Fat Chance and Fat City Cycles were '90s legends thanks to bikes like the Slim Chance road bike and Yo Eddy mountain bike. Its founder Chris Chance is aMountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee and recently sprang back onto the scene with the revival of Fat Chance bikes. Though his bikes are now thoroughly modern, they keep a bit of that playful '90s styling.

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!

  • Hi. Do you have any recommendations for children’s bicycles made in the USA? Thank you

    LIza on

  • American company doesn’t mean American made. I don’t know why Guerilla Gravity isn’t on here.

    Austin on

  • I’m a fan of Canfield mountain bikes built in Fruita, CO.

    Matthew Pollard on

  • Calfee!

    Twain on

  • I have a disability and trying to locate a American built 3 wheeler multi speed has become a challenge for me, any help in locating a builder in the USA would be appreciated.

    Bradley Stevens on

  • I am looking for a tandem side by side bike
    Please tell me where to go. Thx Carol

    Carol Hope on

  • How about American made exercise bikes?

    JAMES on

  • No to mention Lynskey Performance Bikes. Your list is woefully too short for the number of American made bikes.

    David Merriman on

  • Ibis, Independent Fabrication, Waterford, Seven, Rivendel

    Mark Young on

  • Zinn Cycles out of Boulder, CO are made in the US.

    Steve Bremer on

  • Litespeed, located in Chattanooga, Tennessee and has been making titanium bicycles since 1986. They make exceptional titanium bicycles that are US made. Litespeed should definitely be on your list of American made bikes.

    Pete on

  • Daniel, HIA is the parent company of the Allied brand.

    John on

  • Would be interested in finding out what anyone’s opinion of Fezzari bikes out of Linden, Utah is ?

    Donald Monroe on

  • Any mention of Dave Tesch?

    Dave on

  • I have a Klein Pulse Comp with around 40,000 miles on it. The 4th and last year of the warranty I noticed spider cracks on the bottom bracket. Brought it to Village Cycle in Chicago, they said they would replace the frame and have it in 3-4 days. They called me the next day and said it was ready. Klein airlifted a frame the same day I brought it there, Village Cycle swapped it out and I was riding the next day. I have 2 Kleins.

    James Miller on

  • Recently tried finding a 16” bicycle for my grand daughter that’s made in the USA. Nope. Schwin, Huffy, & Murray? Nope

    Kevin PIlotte on

  • Detroit Bikes ?

    Bill William on

  • Daniel, many American Brands are not here. These seven represent bikes that Pros Closet have available to purchase. The Klein would look good as an art piece here at home, or nearby at the Marin Bicycling Hall of Fame. But I’m holding out for a 1984 Ross Mt. Whitney (my first crush)

    David Houston on

  • You forgot HIA – who makes beautiful carbon bikes IN AMERICA. Their gravel bikes were the first across the line in The Dirty Kanza…both women’s and men’s races.

    Daniel on
