Ultimate Listing: Mountain Bikes Made In America

The United States has a wide array of bicycle builders across the entire nation. While the major American brands like Specialized, Trek, and GT mass produce their bikes overseas, there is a very strong contingent of custom handmade mountain bike builders creating masterful works of art here in our own country. There are also medium size bike producers Intense Cycles and Turner Bikes offering mountain bikers model choices across the whole spectrum of the sport from XC race to downhill.

I’m going to do my best to keep an on going list of all of the American bike companies producing their product in the United States. Below you’ll find a list of the bike companies with their website, where they are located, and the materials they use. Hopefully this guide will help you find the mountain bike you’re looking for made in the USA. Each builder has their own unique style and offer varying models. Some don’t even just make frames, they build stems, seatposts, handlebars, and forks. If you want to see more mountain bike components made in America, check out my Ultimate Listing: Mountain Bike Parts Made In America.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this listing. America sure does have a bunch of amazingly talented builders. As I said at the top of the article, I’ll be updating this post as I find more builders. In case I’ve missed any feel free to comment or send me an email.

122 thoughts on “Ultimate Listing: Mountain Bikes Made In America”

  1. Great list, honored to be represented. I have a few more that need to be up. Generic Cycles, Denver- Chris builds sweet bikes under the Generic title as well as Spot Brand and “Reeb”. Also can’t forget about the master Don McClung and his “Back Yard Bikes”, Salida CO. If you like 29ers tip your hat to Don.

  2. Simple Bicycle Co – Portland, OR. A one man show who’s been at it for decades. He builds everything from BMX to roadie

  3. OS bikes are made in Taiwan. Also, Handsome bikes are mostly from overseas, but they’re 29er is outsourced to Peacock Grove.

  4. Hmm didn’t realize that about OS Bikes. I’ll make the Handsome Bikes entry more specific to their 29er. That’s why they’re in the list because PG makes that bike for them.

  5. THis is a great list, thanks so much for putting it together. It’s wonderful to see how many makers have sprung up. I really hope you’ll find the inner resources to keep this list maintained ;) I know it’s not easy. THanks for taking the time. Now find me a reasonably priced US made kids bike HA HA….

  6. Wow – what a great list and great website – there are so many great American made bikes out there!  Why would anyone get a plastic cookie cutter from Taiwan?  My three bikes: Lynskey Sportive, Lynskey Pro 650, and a 1972 Schwinn Racer!

  7. May I suggest the only 36er fully custom bike made for really tall riders:
    Based in San Francisco, built in the USA (steel, aluminium and titanium) sourcing a huge majority of our components from US and European manufacturers.

  8. Hey, Xprezo is a company that does everything from design to production in house in Bromont, Quebec. (Canada, not the US, but still.)

    I believe Devinci also manufactures in Quebec.

  9. I refuse to buy anything not made here in the USA. This site is a huge help as I get ready to move to a 29er. Thanks

  10. You missed a bunch of TX builders:

    Clyde James Cycles

    Daltex Handmade Bicycles

    Edoz Bicycles

    Gallus Cycles

    Gjertsen Framebuilding Tools

    Millenium Cycles

    Phantasm Cycle Works

    Southwest Frameworks

    Violet Crown Cycles

  11. Yeti’s frames are not US made. How do I know? Mine’s been sitting in a container from Taiwan waiting from LA truckers to come off strike.

  12. Good job man way to list the little guys doing it right and the best they can. I support my local bike shop here in Colorado Springs by purchasing solely from them which is hard to do.

  13. great list love the photos. St Louis Missouri has a builder FeCycles, They build in steel , titanium and carbon. fecycles.com

  14. You know, I take it back about Fatback. They are pretty misleading. Across the top of their website they say, “ALASKA BUILT BICYCLES • MADE IN THE USA”. That’s what I saw that made me post here. But, when you start to actually look it turns out they only make their AL frame here. NONE of their other stuff… and they offer a lot of parts… is US made. That’s pretty deceptive. Then when I tried to contact them through various media, they just totally ignored me.

  15. because companies such as GT have given great things to the industry. It built the BMX division single-handedly, it reshaped the MB division with Triple Triangle and currently redefined the Road Bike. It designed the iDrive suspension and built the legendary top dawg…the GT Fury. GT was established in 1972 and is now a Canadian company. It may be under an umbrella with Schwinn and Cannondale but let’s face it, between GT and Schwinn those 2 have seen and done it all. Regardless of where Schwinn is today the sheer amount of R&D and history as well as achievements between the two place them at the top of the heap in terms of resume. Giant is the biggest seller but that’s it…a Taiwanese sellout. Nothing more nothing less. GT is a company that brought innovation and gave to the industry multiple times. What have these contributed in history?

  16. Mountain Cycle went out of business in 2012. In 2011, they attempted to rebuild their brand with a new line of mountain bikes including the San Andreas II and Zen II. Though designed in California, the frames were all manufactured in Taiwan.

  17. Check these guys out….. F-Bom, love the name and there comparison of Taiwan built vs USA build is awesomeness…

  18. This is an exceptional (!) website. I rode Schwinns my whole life (now 61, retired Navy, Federal LE Officer)….looking for a custom “bikepacker” with built-in fly rod kit. So, thanks John….I was going to suggest Chumba as well. I have been considering Chumba (out of Austin TX) for a month or so. They have been outstanding in responding.

  19. TBC transition bicycle company out of Washington, they make the patrol and scout, I’m sure you’ve heard of them :)

  20. I just bought the Realm cycles Bike just like the one posted here. What do you think that bike is worth?

  21. How about AMERICAN mountain bike manufacturing out of St. Cloud, MN. All aluminum,
    many polished with beauty welds. I have two all originals and the designer of the logos for AMERICAN and the Complite series. I can send photos if requested.

  22. I originally passed on putting them on the list, but you bring up a great point. They have significant contributions to the world of American MTB. I added them to the list. Thanks for bringing them up!

  23. Check out Rhode Fabrication in Maryland. They design and make fully custom steel mountain bikes and have an enduro shock extension that rivals the options coming out of other countries.

  24. Hello, Wyatt Bicycles manufactures mountain bike and fat bike frames in the USA using 100% U.S. sourced aluminum.

    Just an FYI, there are a handful of companies that no longer manufacture their bikes in the USA that are on this list.
