    Kelly Bike Company LLC calls it quits.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- 5/2/06

    NEVADA CITY CA – Recognized worldwide as a high-end production steel bicycle frame manufacturer, Kelly Bike Company LLC decides to call it quits.

    Kelly will continue to take orders for any “in stock” items until Friday, May 19th, 2006. Those last orders are estimated to ship by Friday June 16th, 2006, or once the last order is completed. Kelly will no longer take orders for any custom frame builds or assemblies.

    If a person wants that special color & decal combination, or the popular “clear over decal” upgrade, this will be the last chance to get it like you like it. After the last order is completed and shipped the operation will be dismantled and every last item will be sold i.e. unfinished frames, tooling, equipment, raw materials, etc.

    All remaining assets of the LLC will be sold on site and via online auction.

    Anyone interested in purchasing the assets of the LLC feel free to give Chris & Robin a call at 530-470-8500 or via email [email protected] .





    The eBay auction went to the winner @ $3400. I got my frame and fork ordered last week.

    Thanks for the post...

    I did see the press release before. Just wondered what led to the closing to begin with. Financial stress, career change, etc.? Just sorry to see Kelly go.

    He told me 2 weeks ago he's "done" and wants to leave with the smallest amount of debt, if any.
