Six-Eleven Bicycle Co. Unveils Hometown Mfg.

If you've ever wanted a custom, hand-built bicycle, especially one from internationally renowned and award winning Six Eleven Bicycle Co., but couldn't quite justify the price tag, your dreams may be coming true.

Six-Eleven Bicycle Co. showed off a new line of Roanoke-made bicycles at GO Fest last weekend - Hometown Mfg.

Hometown Mfg. bikes are still hand built but utilize some processes that speed up production and help lower the cost. The steel frames are tig welded (instead of brazed) and powder coated (instead of wet paint).

  • Hear what Aaron Dykstra (Six Eleven Bicycle Co. owner/builder) has to say about the new Hometown Mfg. line in this video.

The new line includes a 650b mountain, road, disc cross, and touring bikes. Each model will come in four different sizes and is made right here in Roanoke, VA.

Frames will be available in early 2013, and are expected to be under $1,000.  And don't be surprised if you see the bikes showing up in your favorite bike shop sporting a custom paint job specific to that shop.

Show your Roanoke (and made in the USA) pride -- ride a Hometown Mfg. bike!
