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
For Johnny Coast,

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

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