Cannondale- A true legacy in the cycling industry
Cannondale began manufacturing aluminum racing and touring frames in 1983, with mountain bike frames added later. The earlier models sported oversized aluminum tubes for increased stiffness, resulting in frames that were super-stiff and super-efficient. Later, carbon fiber composite frames were developed.
Cannondale has won numerous design awards including the “Publisher’s Award for Innovation” from Bicycling Magazine, “Technological Development of the Year Award” from VeloNews magazine, “”Best Of What’s New” award from Popular Science, “Best New Products of the Year Award” from Business Week, “Design Recognition Award” from ID magazine, “Computer-Aided Design Award” from Design News magazine, and a “Design and Engineering Award” from Popular Mechanics.
Cannondale’s sponsorship of Division 1 road racing teams began with the Saeco team in the late 1990s, highlighted by Mario Cipollini’s four consecutive stage wins in the 1999 Tour de France. The team notably won the Giro d’Italia five times, in 1997 with Ivan Gotti, in 2003 with Gilberto Simoni in 2004 with Damiano Cunego. Also, with their most recent success at Le Tour De France Peter Sagan and other big names.
Swiss, Premium, Performance Cycling
BMC is Swiss, very Swiss. But what does that mean?
This small Alpine European country bordered by no less than 5 others, has been crafted by the mountains. Mountains have influenced the birth of its independence and the evolution of its people and culture, to create a highly diverse yet very diplomatic landscape. Mountains are unavoidable in Switzerland, and for a bicycle manufacturer like BMC they provide the canvas for our dreams. They challenge us with their terrain, providing the perfect playground to inspire innovation.
We don’t see our mountains as barriers but as hurdles, and we search daily for the best ways to overcome them – with pride, precision and quality engineering.

‘A high value or a value in excess of that normally or usually expected’ this is exactly what BMC strives to deliver. We invest heavily in research and development and the constant evolution of our own engineering techniques and technology to deliver premium products.
Differentiated by Quality
To achieve an excessive value in terms of quality, design, specifications and the level of production we keep a lot of what we do absolute top secret. The entire production process, from the inception of a new bike, through to its design, prototyping, testing, iterating and all the way to the final product, happens in our Impec Advanced R&D lab in Grenchen, Switzerland. This commitment to controlling the process ensures that just like our bikes, we have a competitive, high-performance edge over our competition.
Designed by Bike Geeks, Built by Machines, Pushed to the limits by the World’s Fastest Athletes
The devil hides himself in the details; for an athlete at the very pinnacle of his sport, there are very few things that can impact their performance. Technology, in terms of equipment, is undoubtedly the biggest differentiating factor and greater than the margins of physiological improvement. At BMC, we have been listening to and observing riders for years – whether professional or recreational. Cadel Evans, Taylor Phinney, Thor Hushovd, Ralf Näf, Julien Absalon, Corrine Abraham – we have used the world’s top athletes over the years to test our bikes. They are an intrinsic step in the research, development and production process, riding our prototypes and giving us feedback as we go along.
BMC was born in Switzerland in 1994 and raised surrounded by the watch-making industry of Grenchen, Canton Solothurn. The relationship to performance cycling began when BMC began supplying the Swiss professional road racing team Phonak whose then patron was Andy Rihs, owner of international hearing company of the same name. Andy Rihs took over BMC in 2000 with the vision of building a carbon production facility to produce the ‘Porsche of race bikes’, and so he did. This factory has changed how the company approaches bike manufacturing and it has evolved into the Impec Advanced R&D Lab. Precision engineering and an innovative approach to research and development are BMC’s pride and no other cycling manufacturer has so many tools at its disposal under one roof.
BMC is the premium, Swiss, cycling performance manufacturer. Established in 1994, the company employs up to 200 people worldwide. It is headquartered in Grenchen, Switzerland where it also has its very own carbon production and R&D facility the Impec Advanced R&D Lab. BMC’s bikes are ridden by the world’s top athletes including Tour de France winner 2011 Cadel Evans and the 2014 World XCO champion – Julien Absalon.

Pure Fix Cycles is our celebration of bicycling for all that it offers: transportation, health, and righteous good times. With our economy cooled and our planet warming, there is no better way to get around than riding, cost and carbon free, on a fixed gear bike. In a city where transportation is always a challenge, we can help make your transit something you look forward to.
Our name captures our mission: cycling at its purest. Quality-built fixed gear bikes, directly from the manufacturer to you. That means no frills, no middle men, and best of all, a product that is as easy to use as it is affordable. An unbeatable price tag doesn’t have to mean a compromise in aesthetics, though. We feel that simplicity and efficiency are beautiful ideas, and likewise, can easily translate into stylish motifs. Our bicycles come in a variety of attractive color schemes, from classic to avant-garde, and our selection is always rotating.
While riding a bicycle, in and of itself, is good for your heart, your wallet, and your world…
We know that more can always be done in the improvement of health and the environment. That’s why we are designing cause-themed bikes to raise money for relevant charities. The colors of these bikes will be appropriate to their causes. Our first two models are for charity: water, a wonderful charity that we’re so proud to support.
On the business side of things, our mission is the same one we bring to our designs—efficiency first. Our use of web-based relationships for modeling, manufacturing, and shipping has helped us build a business that is equal parts fast, cost-effective, and global. As safety is our fundamental priority, all of our models meet the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s bicycle standards, and are assembled using the most trusted materials in the industry.
Camino Cielo, “Sky’s Pathway”, is a narrow road that runs along the top of a ridge in the Santa Ynez mountains behind Santa Barbara. After rolling off the shoulder of La Cumbre Peak, Camino Cielo continues south for several miles roughly paralleling the coastline and the Pacific Ocean several thousand feet below. It’s on this rugged and adventurous road, and the many others like it in the foothills and mountains surrounding town, that Chris King discovered the values of a well-designed bicycle. Camino Cielo, it’s climbs and twists and turns and descents, was a laboratory and a test track, and the perfect retreat from a hard day’s work at the machine shop.
Thirty-two years later and a thousand miles up the coast from Camino Cielo in our Portland, Oregon workshop, our love of cycling and the places that make it special, remain. And in homage to the magic of those early rides and the roads that gave birth to Cielo, we feature La Cumbre Peak on the engraved brass head tube badge included with every bicycle we make.
Chris’ reputation as a component manufacturer is well known but there was a time when Chris built as many bicycle frames as sealed bearing headsets. Starting in 1978, Chris began fabricating steel road racing and touring frames from his small shop in Santa Barbara, CA. While many Cielo frames were sold to individual clients and bore the Cielo marque, the majority of Chris’ work was done for racing teams.
Many Cielo frames were raced in the United States under the names of several prominent manufacturers and pedaled by some of the day’s most notable racers. While Chris’ specialty at the start was 700c road bikes he would go on to produce several models of mountain bikes and in the process, discover a new market. A market that quickly and near unanimously embraced his durable sealed bearing headsets.
With little time for the labor-intensive craft of frame construction, Cielo was put aside in the early 1980’s for twenty-eight years. In 2008, a combination of factors led Chris to return to the torch. His component business was secure and stable, no longer demanding his focused input each day. Next, the demand for custom-made steel frames was clearly on the rise. Add to this slow-boiling mix the fact that Chris now lives and socializes in Portland’s large community of talented bicycle builders. Casual conversations with other builders led from components to business advice to framebuilding. It soon became clear to Chris that the passion he had for framebuilding had never gone away; it had only been pushed aside by other interests. A stainless steel Cielo road frame exhibited at the 2008 North American Handmade Show drew enough attention and praise from inside and outside the company to encourage Chris to revive Cielo Cycles. Chris’ days are now very much like they were back then – riding back and forth to work on his own bicycles, though now, often in a rain jacket.
SCOTT presented the lightest full-suspension mountain bike worldwide. The name “G-Zero” became a milestone in the development of the bike industry.
