> Does anybody know anything about Alpine Cycles > in Washington, D.C.? David, These were very nice frames built in D.C. or nearby Rockville, Maryland during the '70s through the mid to late 1980s. I don't recall the original frame builder's name but eventually the owner and lead builder was a fellow named Fred Kelly. You still see a number of them in the D.C. area and every one I've seen (a couple of dozen frames) was nicely made. I've borrowed a couple for test rides and found that their good reputation was well founded. By the way, in those days if you took a frame into Mel Pinto's shop for a frame repair, it was sent out to Alpine. Best regards, Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia
