Proletariat Bicycle Co.
Springfield, OR

from their website:
We chosose to build with True Temper OX Platinum Steel. The ride this material produces is nearly unbeatable. If you factor in cost, Steel can't be touched.

We want to build for people who love to ride. Passionate people.

As a company we are new, but as individuals we have been building bicycles for years. Most of those years working for larger companies honing our skills under the tutelage of wizened people like our mentor Bill Schaefer. We have learned to love every aspect of the bicycle's complexities while never losing sight of the simplicity that makes it a truly beautiful machine. Simplicity of lines and smooth transitions coupled with pure function defines the bicycle for us.
