and Chris King stuff for Hubs, BB, Headset.. but I don't know what you'd do for derrailuers/chain/shifters. seems like all of that stuff is only imported.

Are there any domestically manufactured cranksets? Pedals?

Serotta. Best road frame I've ever owned and I've been through a lot of them.

What about SRAM? Aren't they US built? They used to be when they were known as GripShift. RaceFace is US too, isn't it? Crank Brothers? I know Speedplay builds their pedals in the US.

Thanks. Once we get settled in the area, I'll come down to see you.

All of the Sram stuff is made in Taiwan or China. Even their XX/Red stuff. Crank bros. and Race Face is Asia, too. Their top crank may still be made in Canada, but my Race Face Deus cranks in a newer edition are Asian, old ones were made in Canada. I do think the Speedplay stuff is still made here.

It's true that most large company (Trek, Specialized, Giant, GT/Schwinn) production, off the shelf bikes at $3000 (complete) or less come from overseas. IMVHO there is nothing wrong with imported bikes from Taiwan since they are modern, good quality and use fair trade practices.

Made in USA:
Waterford/Gunnar
Intense
Titus
Workman (since 1898 in NYC, in the same building even!)
Independent Fab
Seven
Turner
Lenz Sport
Moots
Sinister
Retrotec
Serotta
Van Dessel
Lynskey
Ventana
Foes
Soulcraft

Some companies made high end here (and I will include Canada)
Trek (high end and OCLV)
DeVinci
Rocky Mountain
Norco

FWIW, Fox shocks are all still made in California. Also Niterider, Princeton Tec, Turbocat lights are made here in the USA still.

Dont forget YETI CYCLES.
Made right here in Golden. Their 575 is made over seas however. I have owned two of these. I have spoken with Chris (CEO) about this matter and the only reason they do is based on sheer volume. They simply cannot keep up with demand for that frame. Their welder went over to China and taught two welders over there how to duplicate the welds. All other bikes made by Yeti are still made in Golden, CO. Anyone that rides should stop by for a shop tour. The guys are great and would b more than willing to show you around.

Yeah, Spot kinda sold out too.

But i guess their overseas experiment went so poorly they brought a lot of it back.

A lot of the frames are still welded here although they really don't offer a bare single speed frame (no cable lugs, ect.). But I guess not too many folks here or in general care about single speed, so a frame set up for gears works for them now.

Mike,

Thanks again for the stuff the other day... I will be down there next weekend and will bring a few bikes by for some tunes. Can you guys work on vintage campy? That and my creaking BB on the mountain bike that we spoke about are my priorities right now. Actually, my Litespeed could use a tune too so maybe I'll drop them all off and get the whole stable back up to speed!

Oh, and here's a bump!
