Arundel Bicycle Company was formed in 2000 after returning from a trip to the Milan bike show. Although the Italian show had a great selection of very cool bikes and parts, we left Milan with the idea that we should design and make our own stuff rather than buying and selling someone else’s stuff. Our first product, the Dave-O carbon cage, was drawn on paper while on the air flight back to Texas. It was David’s idea, so against his wishes we named it the Dave-O (his nickname). The first 500 were made by Dave-O personally here in Fort Worth, in our buddy’s carbon plant. He let us loose in his shop, working along side the parts for the Space Shuttle and the Joint Strike Fighter.
