Here at ANT we [Mike & Betsy] are into everyday bicycles that can be used for any type of road or light trail/dirt road riding. A lightweight, but rugged bike with fattish tires and equipped with all the accouterments that you will need to travel comfortably, safely and to be able to carry the things that you need.
Mike Flanigan has a long background in manufacturing bicycles and while Betsy Eckel Scola has a full time day job, as a college administrator, she is also our marketing manager and webmaster [and major supporter of all things ANT].
We make all steel bicycles that are lugged and brazed touring bikes and so for the most part, that is the type of bike the ANT is.
Each frame has a powder coated finish [rather than wet paint/solvent based]. Powder coating is a safe and clean way to finish a frame that is better for the air, water and the worker. However, powder coating is a one color finish…no fades or art work.
Please get in contact with any questions.
Sincerely Mike and Betsy
