The Bicycle Museum of America is a museum located in New Bremen, Ohio, United States. The museum, one of the largest private collections of bicycles in the world,[citation needed] is located at 7 West Monroe Street.

It features bicycles and memorabilia, obtained recently by Jim Dicke of Crown Equipment Corporation, the international manufacturer of electric lift trucks, native to New Bremen.

"This is just the beginning for the museum and we plan on continually making improvements to the facility and the collection, " said Dicke. "We believe the Bicycle Museum of America will develop into an exciting tourist attraction for the community."

This well-known collection, previously located at the Navy Pier in Chicago, is expected to attract bicycle enthusiasts from around the world to New Bremen. The museum houses elegant antique bicycles from the 19th century, balloon tire classics of the 1940s and 1950s and even the banana seat high-rise handle bar bikes of the 1960s.
