1987 Weigle

 

 From a 2006 interview for Le Cirque du Cyclisme:

"Beginning in January, 1973, I was hired by Witcomb USA, who sent me to England to serve a 7 month work study program at Witcomb Lightweight Cycles.  There I learned the basics. On my return, I began building racing and touring frames for Witcomb USA in Connecticut, from late 1973 until it closed in 1977."

"In late '77, I opened J.P. Weigle Cycles, and started to build road frames on my own, then my first mountain bike in 1982.  I attended several early Fat Tire Festivals in Crested Butte, CO."

"During the late '90's, I went back to my roots and specialized in traditional road bikes again.  Five years ago, I fell in love with randoneuring bikes."

"In the mid '90's, I introduced J.P. Weigle Frame Saver, a rust inhibitor, used to combat rust inside steel frames."

"Riding bicycles since my childhood, I raced time trials in England, won CT state road and time trial championships.  I raced mountain bikes in the '80's, and, in 1988, won the National Cyclocross Championship (senior-35).  These days I ride for mental and physical well-being, and the simple pleasure of the road."

J.P. Weigle frames have been featured in Bicycling, Playboy, Bicycle Guide, Mountain Bike, Cigar Aficionado, Dirt Rag, Road Bike Action, Asphalt and Vintage Bike Quarterly.
