    Default Handcrafted in the USA

    Is that a Seven? Or a Lynskey?

    not a seven, though for many years (maybe still), their number one "retailer" was the South Korean distributor. we used to joke that everyone in South Korea must ride a ti seven given the number of units shipped there.

    I think most of us like the idea of "made in America". Then reality sets in. Look at the labels of your clothes - almost nothing is made in the USA. Electronics? Forget it.

    We like to talk about this stuff but look at the lines getting ready for the Black Friday sales already. Let's be honest, we really want things CHEAP...and fast.

    That's what makes those of us that use this forum a little unique. We want the best cycling stuff and are willing to pay for it. We are the cycling one percenters.

    Most people in our country really couldn't give a rat's ass about where stuff is made. That is unless it impacts their livelihood directly. And even then, they are still buying foreign made electronics and wearing foreign made close.
