BS, the only Treks produced outside the USA are those which cost below $1000, the rest are hand built in the USA.frango said:Giant's taiwanese factory produces mid and high end bikes for Trek, Specialized and many other world brands
where else could it be done?
It doesn't really matter. They are two different companies.Stevebiker said:OK, definitely a few different opinoins here. So what's the real story? Not just speculation.
yup! That is the plain truth all Specialized, Trek and Scott lovers - ttey can't even make a frame for their bikes!! And building up the bike itself, how hard is that?! even I ca do it!!XSL_WiLL said:applegreenheckler would be the most correct.
Well why don't you just call Trek,Specialized or Scott and ask who makes there frame's?Ray_from_SA said:You're all welcome to believe whatever you want.
No matter where Treks are made... the only Trek better than any Giant is the one under Lance (BTW... I guess the Telekom won the TDF Team's Classification aboard Giants)...Ray_from_SA said:BS, the only Treks produced outside the USA are those which cost below $1000, the rest are hand built in the USA.
Meridia makes all the low end stuff for specialized and Giant makes the high end stuff including the FSR's. Meridia owns 49% of Specialized but Giant make the higher end stuff for them. Does'nt that seem odd to you or is Giant that much better of a manufactuer.Ray_from_SA said:I'm not disputing the fact that some of Trek's frames are made in Taiwan and others are made in China, I know this for a fact.
The difference is I do work for a Trek dealer and know which Trek frames are made where, and yes some are made at Giant, but not all.
And to further clarify, I worked for a Giant dealer previously, own a Giant XTC, and have not once disputed the quality of Giant although I have doubted them briefly recently, which is altogether different story.
So fellas, stop getting uptight, I haven't disagreed outright that Giant fabs for Trek, I just said not everything comes from Giant.
