Shimano has factories in China, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan and probably several other countries. Nothing unusual about that.cptjack said:me and my wife were just looking at the internet and saw that shimano has a lot of factories in China???
Country of origin marking is required, so you should be able to determine that when you buy it. What bike do you have? Nothing wrong with Chinese stuff according to most American buying habits...cptjack said:I'm upset
what parts can I buy that are not made in china? I thought my bike was off limits for chinese products.
Err, China has intentionally devalued the Yuan against the dollar for years, and they will probably continue to do so in the near future.GT5050 said:That said, I think China's the next one to see their goods go way up in cost, the weak dollar hurt China,
While that may be true, it is also true that the dollar has (although lately it's gotten stronger) weakened, hurting Chinese exports. Anyone with a mid-size business manufacturing goods for the US market has felt this, their labor effectively became much more expensive when the dollar was at its lowest.TLL said:Err, China has intentionally devalued the Yuan against the dollar for years, and they will probably continue to do so in the near future.
