Ross Bicycle

The Ross bicycle are now considered vintage. They were manufactured from 1950 to 1989 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Their headquarters was located in Rockaway Beach, New York. The company sold a variety of bikes. These included wheelie, kid, and road bikes. They were even one of the first companies that made an array of mountain bikes when they were first introduced to the market.

Until the mid 1980s, the Ross bicycle was in a rivalry with Schwinn and Huffy bikes. In fact, they were the third largest domestic producer of bikes. However, in 1989, the company had gone bankrupt. They were not able to compete with imported bikes that were coming from the East. Rand Cycle, of Farmingdale, New York, ended up purchasing the name Ross from the bankruptcy court. He never marketed the name enough, though. So, now Rand still owns the name, but he is not actively seeking Ross bicycle sales.

Ross, a big name in bicycles manufactured in the U.S. topped only by Schwinn and Huffy, started out in 1940 galvanizing the bottom of boats and, by 1959, exclusively produced bicycles and tricycles. In the 1980s the company turning to mountain bikes and in 1983 the fueled sales by introducing the first factory sponsored mountain bike team, the Ross Indians. Ross Bicycle then put together a major East Coast race to further popularize the sport.

With over 100,000 mountain bikes sold in 1985 things were going well for Ross but in 1989 the company succumbed to the effects of cheap imports and despite an attempt at manufacturing in Taiwan the company went bankrupt. The name Ross Bicycle was bought by Rand Cycle, but isn't used.
