Moots frames handbuilt in
Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA since 1981.
And every time I’ve been in Steamboat my intentions have always been to visit that facility. Funny how other things distract from it and it slips my mind.

Awesome that they are still going strong with titanium.

And BTW here’s another USA made frame & and component builder.

Black Sheep
Built and manufactured in Colorado.

I do not understand the question
Seriously; after all I think I know where my bikes are made
Do you have something on your website that says where the bikes are made? That is what I am looking for. Looks like this page would be perfect for such information:
bikesdirect.com/frequent.htm

I understand what you're attempting to do with adding a link to the first post for the Bikes Direct brands. However, do we really need to get that hung up on the issue when brands like SRAM and FOX (whose components are manufactured in multiple countries, not just the US) are listed as US manufacturers and thier links direct you to a Wikipedia page?

Which was where I stumbled in this thread. Deceiving how they do that.

That’s an interesting suggestion
I will discuss it with my staff
Issue is Bikesdirect does sell brands that I do not own or control production on

i have always been in favor of presenting country of origin
But years of trying that has proven most customers do not care

I think it matters but the vast majority of consumers do not think so or could care less

But in your quest,you should know many models from many companies move from one county to another
It’s hard to even keep up

At this time; I only use Taiwan - even on Gravity kids bikes and Mango cruisers ; which is rather unusual, as most companies use China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Singapor, etc for lower cost or lower spec level bikes

I agree with that
most brands do not state on their site where their products are made
and often when they do it’s an attempt to give the impression they are a US or Euro manufacturing company
The truth is almost all bicycles are from China or Taiwan - but other Asian COO have been added in the last few years

i have always wished consumers cared about this question
but in general , they do not
