Stinsmen was based near Allentown, Pennsylvania. I think he also built frames branded Veloce- I saw a few of these raced at T-Town in the early 90s.. I recall seeing a Stinsmen tandem with Dura-Ace AX brakes at Bikeline in Allentown, maybe 1991.

Stinsmen was also featured in a Bicycling magazine article on American framebuilders, maybe around 1977-78.

Standard hubs/rims with extra spokes added at 90 degrees to help out the single bike rims. Haven't seen it yet, but it sounds interesting. Does anyone know of this American builder?
