Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles is a small American bicycle company who aligns itself next to a diminishing number of premier US-made frame manufacturers.
Owned and operated by founder/CEO Tony Ellsworth, Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles has been praised for its innovative design and immaculately detailed quality. Coupled with incredible performance and cutting-edge technology, Ellsworth frames weigh in as some of the lightest in the world. Their efficiency and overall ride quality has set benchmarks for over 17 years.
Tony Ellsworth designed and built his first frame in 1991, when his personal passion for cycling drove him to create a better bicycle for his own enjoyment. Calling it the Sub 22, Ellsworth’s hope was to share his new frame design with only a few members of his family and circle of close friends. However, as more people got to see and ride his bike, his hobby turned into a part-time business with multiple orders coming in every week.
In 1993, Ellsworth set out to test his passion even further by designing a full-suspension frame. Having proven to stand the test of time, the Truth frame was born and is still a cross-country staple to this day. Having much iteration since its inception, the Truth paved the way for Ellsworth’s patented Instant Center Tracking (ICT) design.
What started as one man’s passion, turned into a profitable company in 1998, when Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles became an official corporation!
As one of the world’s leading boutique bicycles manufacturers, Ellsworth’s line of frames include everything from cross country racing to aggressive downhill race frames to their latest award winning (Popular Science Top 10 innovations for 2007) lifestyle performance bike known as, The Ride.
