We’ve spent years cultivating our relationships with the following frame builders, who we firmly believe will put a smile on your face every time you throw a leg over the machines that bear their names!
“In the winter of 1986, while living and working in my home state of Florida, I was contacted by a friend and former co-worker about a possible job opportunity at Serotta Bicycles. I was very excited about this prospect because it was the best way to pursue frame building as my full time career.
In February of 1987 I moved my family to Saratoga Springs, NY and worked at Serotta until December, 2008. After 21+ years at Serotta it was time to once again to build fine frames under my own name.
The cumulative knowledge I gained during my many years at Serotta has been invaluable in pursuing my passion of frame building under the K. Bedford banner.” – Kelly Bedford
“Parlee was founded a decade ago with a simple but lofty goal: To build the world’s best performing race bikes. At the time, carbon fiber was overlooked in the road bike market. But based on what I had learned during 20 years in the boat building business, it was obvious that composites could redefine the cycling world.
The combination of properly sized tubes, accurate lay-up schedules, and proper molding techniques, make carbon fiber the ideal material for creating fast, light and comfortable performance bikes.” – Bob Parlee
“We’ve been building high-performance bike frames since 1981. Each is meticulously fashioned out of premium US-made titanium tubing, allowing us to design every bike to the specific needs of the frame style and individual rider. Our purposeful design philosophy, our knowledge of the unique characteristics of titanium, and our relentless focus on craftsmanship come together in the creation of true lifetime bikes—whether your preference is asphalt, dirt or both.
Each tube miter and each weld, in every single frame we build, is done by hand. Checked by hand. Finished by hand. Polished by hand. Only then do we apply our head badge. By hand, of course.” – Moots
