Buy Local Cyclocross race bike

Matt Haughey attempted to spec a bike with as many domestically-sourced components as possible. The result is beautiful, although it’s also a reminder of how dependent we are on overseas manufacture, even when cost is no obstacle; no American company makes all the components necessary for the drivetrain and that’s unlikely to change. Commuter bikes, at least, can depend on American-built baskets from Wald and bags from various companies.

Militärveloshop

I would not have expected antique Swiss military bicycles to be a popular enough niche to support a specialty reseller. Interesting if you’re curious about utilitarian bike design.
