Ride Longer. Feel Stronger.
Chris works hard to answer your questions and get your orders shipped on time. He is a bicycle commuter, braving the crazy Pittsburgh drivers on his way to work. He also rode his bike across the country - from Pennsylvania to Washington state.
He said that bicycle touring is a beautiful extension of cycling that allows you to combine travel, exploration, and the thrill of new experiences and challenges with the joys of riding that you already enjoy. With proper planning, touring can be a refreshing new way to see the world, a more engaging way to travel from one place to another, and a great way to spend a vacation. Read Chris's blog post about what he learned while bicycle touring across the country.
We Support "Made in USA"
Made in USA is an important part of our apparel line as we have made a commitment to production of cycling apparel in America. We hire local staff and we purchase our materials from the highest quality vendors available to us. Some of our products are imported, but most are made in U.S.A. We manufacture products in five American factories, and we try to use American made fabrics, elastics, thread and labels. We create domestic jobs and support American workers. We have the latest technology to support our customers with fast production, fast shipping and excellent customer service to follow up any type of support needed to get the most out of our products.
Above - Norm cuts the high performance fabrics into parts for our sewing machine operators. He is dedicated to your comfort on the bicycle. We make cyclewear in the United States.
Aero Tech Designs will design and market high quality cyclewear products to exceed the expectations of our customers.
Our vision is to create a brand of cyclewear that will enhance comfort and performance with emphasis on technical design. We will achieve this through our consistent communication with our customers as they express their needs and wants. We innovate our products through advances in fit and fabrics that add value to the customer in all types of outdoor weather.
To support development of Bicycle Culture: We sponsor our local volunteer bicycle organizations.
We are supporting the Ohio River Trail Council to bring a bike trail through downtown Coraopolis that will connect the city of Pittsburgh to the Ohio River area.
Aero Tech also sponsors and serves the Pittsburgh area's primary bicycle advocacy organization - Bike Pittsburgh. This organization has created a master plan or vision to build out a safe infrastructure within the city to keep our cyclists safe on designated roads with greenways and sharrows. Bike Pittsburgh is in the process of implementing "Bike Share" which is catching on big time in many urban cities across the United States. Pittsburgh's bike share will be 50 stations and the bikes will be yellow. This is made possible by the hard work of many volunteers and the financial support of local foundations and a lot of active political planning. This makes our local community more bicycle friendly and a more progressive town. We may not be as cool as Portland or Madison, but we are working together to advance the mission of building safe bike-ways.
Ride your mountain bike on the Hollow Oak Land Trust's new single track trail. The trust is a local land conservatory organization that seeks to protect our watershed and reptile habitat. They just opened an exciting single track - mountain bike trail down the road from our shop. We are thrilled to have so much local activity and support from avid and hard working volunteers.
We continue to support our local bicycle advocacy organizations and will do our part in building bicycle culture for future generations to enjoy. See you on the road....

Our founder, Cathy Schnaubelt Rogers fell in love with cycling at age 12, where she attended a girl scout camp with her spider bike. From this humble beginning, she has ridden all over the world. Cathy has bicycle toured self contained with panniers across the United States riding from Tampa, Florida up the east coast to Cape Cod Massachusetts. She also has bicycle toured through eight European countries. The most she ever rode in one day is 140 miles! Cathy is an avid cyclist. She is a former USCF licensed bike racer, who cycled for the University of South Florida in many sanctioned races. In addition, she was a competitive triathlete.
Cathy continues to ride in bicycle tours and organized bicycle events. Ms. Rogers describes her fascination with the bicycle as a form of neurosis or disease that she can't shake off. She collects bike art and describes her home as a shrine to the bicycle. She says: "Riding my bicycle makes me happy" which is the essence of her love affair with the bicycle.
Check out Cathy's Big Ride Across America Blog she is the first woman to ride an electric bicycle across the United States. She was able to test and fine tune our cycling gear while riding 85 miles a day. The Big ride is 3300 miles in 48 days from Seattle, Washington to Washington DC.
