Cool, it's been a while... my dodge was hecho en mexico.. my last ford was too. Hard to keep up these days as NAFTA countries don't face the tariffs that asia and europe do for importing autos.steadite said:Pretty sure the Dearborn Truck plant is in the US.
nope, im saying u can get better quality parts/price with Asian made goods.Remy Darke said:So you're saying Turner, Titus and Ventana are low quality bikes? How about German bikes like Nicolai? They lower quality too?
Then that's what you should of said in the first place. Although your example is quite pointless since $1k won't even get you a boutique frame let alone a bike. At more than entry level prices the boutique bikes are better deals. Of course they're still equipped with asian drive trains and forks.louisssss said:nope, im saying u can get better quality parts/price with Asian made goods.
the USA, if u gave them $1000 to sell you a good bike, you won't get as good of a bike as a Specialized $1000 Taiwan made (taiwan frame, sram parts, RS fork, etc) bike
90% of the Tacoma is handmade handcrafted in the US?chewymilk99 said:Well even the Japanese companys make their suff in Tawain. So the points are all kinda moot.
If you want a frame made in America it's going to cost more. Not much mind you but more.
If yoiu get that warm fuzzy feeling "riding American" then cool. And yess that car or truck might be assembled in the USA. But the engine nacell and most of the parts are made in Canada or Mexico.
90-ish% of that Tacoma is made here. 48-ish% of that F150 is made here.
Porsche has been designing Harleys engine for years. The steal to make that car comes from China. The wiring harnes comes from Mexico.
Blah, blah, blah.
Just chill out and enjoy your bikes
I was sufing info about bike frames a while back and googled the same.spritz said:Out of curiosity, what bikes are still manufactured in the USA? (I just read that Cannondale will begin making their products in Taiwan.)
