Very interesting read. It is because of the wonderful terminology used by these companies that assisted me in my decision to avoid them.

I have 2 Sinisters, one made in Walpole NH, and one in Bellows Falls VT. NOt only do I know where they were made, but helped make them. I love supporting US manufacturers, and LOVE local manufacturers.

I wonder if it is even possible today to put together a bike that has had all of its parts made in the USA. Maybe if it had wooden wheels and was a coaster it could be done. But with out having custom parts made trying to do this with off the shelf components might be impossible in 2008.

With 2008 parts, it may very well be impossible. I am a big fan of "vintage" parts, and it could be done with these most likely.


You could do a non-asian, using some euro bits from the 90's.

The only way to do an '08 US build would be to do a single speed, and even some of that would be a challenge.
