In the past the American Made Bike industry employed many people. Today most bikes are made elsewhere, however it seems like it is experiencing a bit of a resurgence. Bike making is a craft and a labor of love. I'm not sure it can be replaced by an assembly line of robots making thousands of bikes in a day. Today the old bike names we are familiar with are all just marketing slogans, they made cheaply overseas, advertised heavily and sold by the container to the big box stores in the US.
The companies on this list don't operate that way, they focus on quality, style and function. Their labor of love will become your prize possession. When you buy a bike made in the USA you will also have helped support American jobs keeping our country strong. American's working are paying taxes, participating in the economy we all live in.

Lightning Cycle Dynamics. 30 years ago young American rocket scientist Tim Brummer was an avid cyclist.

The result was the Lightning recumbent style bikes, whose performance is verified by dozens of world records and unmatched comfort recognized by thousands of owners world wide. The Brummer designed Lightning P-38 and R-84 models are hand built […]

Rodriguez Bicycles is a group of 15 people that build bicycles in a small shop in Seattle Washington .
