New York built bike frames coming to UK

Publish date:

No. 22 Bicycle Company has brought production of its bikes in-house with the setting up of a new framebuilding operation in upstate New York.

The team of industry veterans has been drawn from the production staff of the recently closed Saratoga Frameworks, with a combined 53 years of titanium building experience, finishing and paint.

The team will produce all of No. 22 Bicycle Company’s models, including the Great Divide road frame, Little Wing fixie and the soon to be launched Cyclocross model.

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with this team as the long-term manufacturing home for our bikes,” said Mike Smith, co-founder of No. 22. “We have been building our brand around the resurgence of North American craftsmanship, and the frames that the new team are able to build have us thrilled about this relationship.”

The new frame sets are now in the UK with the new raw finish Great Divide offered as standard and the unique anodised finish as an individual option.

No. 22 is distributed to the trade via VAM Performance Ltd. IBDs seeking further information should contact alex@vamperformance.com
