Manufacturer of mountain and road frames as well as the Hotrod crankset, Hothead cockpit and more.

Pennsylvania based Grove was founded by Bill Grove in 1986. Before starting with Grove, Bill designed and built legendary BMX equipment: Titron was his brand and fine ti/magnesium hubs and pedals came from Bill's drawing table.

Grove Innovations is highly regarded among connaisseurs for interesting innovations and an excellent build quality. Good examples are the radical X-frame, undestructical Hard Core, steel Hotrod crank/axle ensemble and the Hothead and Hammerhead bar/stem combos.

Distinctive are the flamboyant paintjobs. Not rarely a Grove came finished in a paint with many (fluo) colours and generous splitter-splatter. Again quality stood out: thick with mulitple clears for lasting deep bright shine.
