Where was your bike made?
Thread started by upstate at 04.20.09 - 6:36 pm

Found an interesting article on how many bike manufacturers out source their work to Asia. Worth checking out

My older-than-me bike still has the sticker on it that says "Made in Taiwan R.O.C."

The "Not so for the" Peoples Republic of China.

Seriously though, it's like a game of cat and mouse to find anything completely made in the USA anymore.
Perhaps some classic, Schwinn beach cruiser from the 1950's sitting in Farmer Brown's barn in the middle of Bumfuck, Nebraska.

Our country needs to get back to building shit with tools and muscle-power, not robotic assembly lines.

Yeah its actually really unfortunate, but due to the slow economy even cannondale has had to consider outsourcing more of its alu frames.

Parkpre Hammer
Frame made in Taiwan at Fairly Bike Manufacturing Co Ltd
Designed by Cozy Yamakoshi

I love my Parkpre, so here's some history.

Parkpre is the product of Cozy Yamakoshi. The actual name of the business was Integra Precision Corporation, it would not fit on the down tube, the Parkpre name came from Cozy's friend and mentor, Mr. Park, who was originally from Korea but changed his name upon moving to Japan. The Pre (precission) part of the name caused some consternation when Pre Skis got all hot and bothered over the Parkpre logo.

Cozy was a famous frame designer before starting his own company... he built frames for REI under their own brand name (Novara), and designed and built the Kastle ski brand bike.

Cozy Yamakoshi has been in the bicycle business for over 30 years. Cozy was a Product Development manager at Western States Imports for many years. WSI was the company who made Centurion and Diamond Backs. He was instrumental in the manufacturing of BMX bikes in Japan and importing them to the United States.
