    American Made SS Products

    Nothing against foreign made parts and frames...I am interested in the those things single speed (and otherwise) that are made here in the states. I have been amazed by the number of custom builders I have researched in my quest for the right frame for me. I have also built my first pair of wheels with Paul hubs (Chico, CA.)

    What other companies are worthy of recognition in this world of cheap and throw-away?

    Thanks JKcustom

    I can't help you with American made SS parts, but I love Chico and the fine ladies who attend Chico State : ) good luck with your search.

    I've been looking around and I have found a really nice SS wheelset by Industry Nine, that are made in North Carolina. This wheelset is out of my price range though!

    Sun rims used to be made in the USA; not anymore.
    American Classic used to be made in the USA; not anymore.
    For some reason this made me very sad; Salsa Chainrings used to be made in the USA but I just bought one, and although the packaging is recyclable, and printed with soy based ink, the aluminum inside the packaging was made in Taiwan.
    Phil's stuff is still domestic, right?

    As best I can find no:
    Rims, tires, spokes, or disc brakes
    are manufactured in the USA everything else is plentyfull.
    One thing on hubs, most American made hubs use Asian manufacured bearings.

    Canadian Content, but.. What about Syncro's rims? Are they Canadian, or manufactured overseas?

    US Quality

    Spot Brand Bikes has moved to Golden, Colorado. Not sure if all their stuff is produced domestically.

    How about Sycip Cycles (Sonoma, CA) and Moots (Steamboat Springs, CO).

    You could do a lot worse than these if you're looking for a oney , Cheers,

    DT makes quite a few of their US-sold spokes here in Colorado.

    Many great companies still out there holding the flag high, some of my favorites;

    White Industries hubs, cranks, freewheels
    White Brothers forks
    Phil Wood bottom brackets and hubs
    Paul components hubs and brakes
    Boone rings
    King for hubs, headsets and general bling

    and for something that I've been waiting on for a while, Grove Cranks...yummy

    cheers,

    rody

    Overseas production, Taiwan to be exact. It's not even Canadian based anymore either (California based now, owned by Pacific who got it as part of the GT deal).

    paul, white industries, and phil are all american made components of very high quality. as for american made spokes, i am pretty sure that phil wood offers spokes. they can be custom cut to any length you desire with their spoke cutting machine. you should contact them.

    Funny thing is, some of the "Dt swiss" spokes are U.S.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Pacific Cycle is based in Madison, WI (go figure).

    Anyway, here's a vote for Gunnar (Waterford) frames and Milwaukee Bicycle frames and cranks (frames are made by Waterford/Gunnar).

    Lynskey is made right here in Tennessee.

    Not SS specific, but Park Tool is St. Paul.

    And there's a great list at BikeCAD.

    American Made rims

    If you are looking for american made rims this is the only choice I know of, arrow racing. They build more than just rims as well.

    Not really SS stuff but...White Brothers forks and ODI grips are U.S. made.

    I also don't mind buying Magura products, German company, made in Germany.

    And some of the Ibex wool clothing is made in the U.S. but not all.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.
