Locally Made bikes.

A friend of mine, Darren is ready to take the plunge and buy a new bicycle after his last ride was stolen. He really wanted to get something unique and was having a hard time finding a steel bike, that was light and fit his size. Then he discovered local Brooklyn frame builder Seth Rosko.

Formerly a builder at Brooklyn Machine Works, Seth now shares a space with another Brooklyn bike builder, Johnny Coast.

Looks like Seth will be making Darren a bike out of super light weight True Temper OX Platinum Steel. In case you wanted to learn more about this product… check this out.

I really can’t think of anything more special then getting a one of a kind original bicycle custom made with US steel by a local frame builder, as opposed to a stamped out in a Taiwanese factory. Just for a few examples here is a list of where most popular bicycles are made.

If you’d like to get in touch with Seth to find out about his work email him slrosko@yahoo.com
For Johnny Coast, johnnycoast@johnnycoast.com

Other locally made frame builders, right here in Brooklyn: Horse Cycles and Squarebuilt.

Just a big shout out to support your local bike makers.
