In 1986, Litespeed’s founders sought to provide an answer to cyclists asking for something strong and durable, yet light and agile. Up for the challenge, a team of designers began a new breed of bikes: Litespeed. Litespeed bikes are manufactured and assembled in its own factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Litespeed delivers bikes that reflect a supreme attention to detail, are unequivocally reliable, and perform at the highest level. From their perspective, it makes sense to partner with a component manufacturer that offers the same. As a result, the rider is able to have an ideal experience on a holistic bike.

We’ve even added vertical compliance using tubular, aero, titanium tubes as subtle springs.” We agree… and adding additional Cane Creek components takes the bike to the next level.
