Page 2: TrueTemper® Brings The Science of Cycle Manufacturing An Art.
As the building of a custom bicycle is a painstaking process, so is the development of quality bicycle tubing. The finished product is a unique collaboration of time, sweat, mistakes and triumphs. That's why True Temper understands the fine art of craftsmanship. Because from the manufacture of some of the first "step-tapered" steel golf shafts in the 1920s to today's highly-advanced butted bicycle tubing, we have always treated product development as an art as well as a science. It is this demanding quality, born in America, that has helped forge the success of United States cycling in recent years. As official bicycle tubing supplier and sponsor of the men's 7-Eleven Cycling Team, True Temper is proud to play a part in the evolution of world-class American cyclists. With the Custom Performance™ bicycle tubing line, including both chrome molybdenum steel and several alloys of solution heat treated aluminum, True Temper now brings you a new degree of advanced tubing technology.
