Nothing against foreign made parts and frames...I am interested in the those things single speed (and otherwise) that are made here in the states. I have been amazed by the number of custom builders I have researched in my quest for the right frame for me. I have also built my first pair of wheels with Paul hubs (Chico, CA.)

What other companies are worthy of recognition in this world of cheap and throw-away?

Thanks JKcustom

I can't help you with American made SS parts, but I love Chico and the fine ladies who attend Chico State : ) good luck with your search.

How about American made rims? Any out there?
I've been looking around and I have found a really nice SS wheelset by Industry Nine, that are made in North Carolina. This wheelset is out of my price range though!

Sun rims used to be made in the USA; not anymore.
American Classic used to be made in the USA; not anymore.
For some reason this made me very sad; Salsa Chainrings used to be made in the USA but I just bought one, and although the packaging is recyclable, and printed with soy based ink, the aluminum inside the packaging was made in Taiwan.
Phil's stuff is still domestic, right?

As best I can find no:
Rims, tires, spokes, or disc brakes
are manufactured in the USA everything else is plentyfull.
One thing on hubs, most American made hubs use Asian manufacured bearings.

US Quality

Spot Brand Bikes has moved to Golden, Colorado. Not sure if all their stuff is produced domestically.

How about Sycip Cycles (Sonoma, CA) and Moots (Steamboat Springs, CO).

You could do a lot worse than these if you're looking for a oney :thumbsup: , Cheers,

Many great companies still out there holding the flag high, some of my favorites;

White Industries hubs, cranks, freewheels
White Brothers forks
Phil Wood bottom brackets and hubs
Paul components hubs and brakes
Boone rings
King for hubs, headsets and general bling :)

and for something that I've been waiting on for a while, Grove Cranks...yummy

cheers,

rody

Canadian Content, but.. What about Syncro's rims? Are they Canadian, or manufactured overseas?
Overseas production, Taiwan to be exact. It's not even Canadian based anymore either (California based now, owned by Pacific who got it as part of the GT deal).
