Cannondale is another top bike brand that dates back to the 1970s. While two buddies founded Trek over a glass of beer, Cannonade was birthed over a pickle factory in Connecticut. At first, the company didn’t make bikes but instead produced a bike trailer, accessories and apparel.

In 1983, the brand created its first bike, a touring model. It followed up with a racing bike the next year. In 1997, Cannonade made waves at the Tour de France by having members of the Saeco cycling team (who rode the brand’s bike) ride on aluminum frames. According to company legend, the leader of the Saeco team declared Cannondale bikes to be the best.

Today, the brand produces a range of bikes, including mountain bikes, road bikes and edibikes. It also has models for children, women and tandem bikes. Generally speaking, Cannondale bikes are at the higher end of the pricing spectrum. Most of its models are more than $1,000 and even its kid’s bikes are a few hundred dollars each.
