    I haven't ridden one, but it was the first thing that came to mind for me. There aren't too many bikes being made in the US these days.

    The other option would be the Alchemy Archtos ST. Again, I haven't ridden it, but it again fits the criteria.

    Do you want a full suspension bikes? There are a lot more US made hard tails.

    Also, if you're not quite as committed to the US as to North America, I believe that Devinci makes the aluminum Django in Canada.

    I think the Arktos is made overseas. The road bike is still made in CO.

    A GG Trail Pistol would be a good option, but there's a lag time between ordering and receiving, so order sooner than later.

    Prices are very fair, ala carte options, and they will custom order anything you want (within reason).

    I have ridden an aluminum Smash and a steel hardtail Pedalhead, currently ride a carbon Shred Dogg 27.5/29, and I'm building a Trail Pistol this winter as a lightweight flier with an SC34 and a bunch of carbon

    Carbon, made in Colorado, great geo, durable, and not expensive, lifetime warranty, really hard to fault GG except they are slow to fill orders.

    Full suspension manufactured in the USA, very very short list. Assembled in the USA by USA company who oversees/controls frame manufacturing, longer list.

    +1 As a fellow Ma rider on a GG Smash I would consider a Trail Pistol, they ride and climb great.

    Ibis was manufacturing some of the Ripleys in the US. I don't remember the exact details, or if they are even doing this anymore. And if I remember correctly, it might have only been the small.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    While a Canadian company the bikes are not made there any longer.

    ďIím very proud of the progress weíve made since Procycle took ownership of Rocky Mountain. While manufacturing has largely been moved overseas, weíve tripled the size of our R&D department, expanded our prototyping capabilities, and still assemble many of our bikes here in Quebec. Weíve always known that the Rocky Mountain development centre needs to be in VancouveróGraysonís dream. The place is a mecca of mountain biking, and the teamís commitment is reflected in every bike we make.

    Thank you nolan17 and hobnine. I appreciate your opinions from MA riders. I am seriously looking at the GG Trail Pistol. And now looking into Lenz also! I have a lot of research...and test riding to do!

    Lenz Sport has some nice bikes, unique 29+ full suspension ST and LT, but his bikes run short, geo is a bit dated, minimal seat post insertion. Still, very robust, custom colors, and he might do some custom geo if you can nail him down.

    You're welcome. I also had a Lenz Lunchbox for 4 years and turned an older 2007 Lunchbox into a full sus fatbike. Thousands of miles combined on them. I will say the Lenz is a great bike, super plush, fast on the DH, and one of the best out of the saddle climbers out there. The GG Smash is a much better seated climber, equal out of the saddle climber, a touch slower on the DH, and not as plush riding around. I don't think you can go wrong with either bike but if you are looking for the better climbing of the two the GG gets the nod. I will say I have not ridden the new Lenz or GG bikes with the tweaked geo, this is the older version of both I am comparing.

    The trail pistol is one of the best cornering bikes I've ever been on... and it also climbs incredibly well. I spend a lot of time out of the saddle mashing shorter rollers, and the suspension stays high in it's travel and is responsive. It's got that nice aggressive geo for all that goodness pointing downhill as well. Seriously a wonderful bike that offers a lot of customization down the line (going the trail pistola route if you wish)

    Check it out, Foes has a new bike and itís actually updated with new school geo and the chainstay is not 18Ē, Iíll be damned!

    Itís probably not a bad ride, always like my Foes Mutz, but itís not gonna hold a candle to a GG bike.

    Another vote for Guerrilla Gravity. Been riding my Get Revved Smash since about April and absolutely love it. Bike does not cease to amaze me with things it can do. Cleaned some technical climbs this weekend that I was sure I was going to end up having to dab on and like the sticker on the top tube says "I LIKE TO GO FAST!" couldn't be any more true with these bikes! Descends like an absolute demon.

    +1 for the GG. I am on a new Revved Trail Pistol(a) (set to 130mm rear). Awesome being able to customize anything you want on the build - even down the tires. The bike is a technical climber's dream. I did a 50 mile write up of mine that GG posted. Take a peek: https://ridegg.com/thedispatch/adams..._revved_review
