    Question Aluminum Tubing Manufacturers in North America?

    Hi All-

    Does anybody know of any companies that produce aluminum bicycle tubing in the U.S.?
    If not the U.S., at least in North America? Acel has been suggested, but we're having trouble connecting with them.

    I'm a new member of VS, so please be gentle. Apologies in advance if this has been covered elsewhere, but I wasn't able to find it.

    Thanks

    Have you tried giving them a call? They have been busy of late.

    Yes, we've called a few times over the last few weeks, but haven't received a response.

    Hmmm... that's the number we have. I guess we'll need to be persistent. We've called a few times over the last few weeks, but haven't received a response.

    That Acel website sucks balls. No point making a good product if no one knows what it is. I would be interested but that outfit is nearly in the too hard basket.

    I have noticed that most frame building supply websites are pretty bad..some just garbage, some really bad flow, and some are strait up outdated.

    Hi Rich & all,

    I'm not sure why you are having trouble getting through.
    Double check the phone number (203)654-6230, or email me your contact info.
    Even If I don't answer right then (which I do try), please leave a message, I will get right back to you.
