A Trip to the Bike Factory

A stones throw from the border of Maine lays a small New Hampshire town of Newmarket. Here in the historic river side mill is The Bike Factory New Hampshire. Under one roof you can find two of the most well known brands in the American built cycling industry, Independent Fabrications and Baileyworks Bags. I dropped into the shop and was greeted warmly and got to take a few shots around the building.

The frame on the left is tack welded in place. You can make out the rainbow colored area on the fully welded frame in the foreground.

If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend visiting The Bike Factory NH.
