    Maybe Cove? Norco? I am thinking Brodie is overseas.

    Devinci frames should be manufactured in house, they champion their manufacturing facility for frames ... plus the Wilson looks bomb and has a great name. But, it's in Quebec, so TECHNICALLY it is still Canadian ... but you can make your own judgements.

    Answer.... devinci...MAYBE. Norco and Cove have always been off-shore.

    I'm fairly certain Devinci's are,I believe they have done some work for Evil bikes and Sinister as well(probably others too).Urie Dog makes a fr/dh hardtail,pretty sure in Canada.Norco,Cove,and Brodie are off shore,as D8 stated.I heard Paul Brodie still makes frames by hand,but xc and rare.

    Knolly? I thought I read somewhere Cove was made in Canada by some company called "Yes" or something?

    Appalache couldn't make a go of it so scratch them off and I don't think Xprezo has come out with a DH frame yet and I'm not sure if they plan to or not either.

    You might be able to ask the boys at Dobermann to do a one off for you though.

    I saw some Xpezo's at Bromont this year rocking DC forks and coil shocks. Not sure if they were prototypes or just beefed up trail bikes but they looked pretty solid to me.

    Coves are made in BC by Yess.

    I heard somewhere that they had gone offshore for the sanchez (little dj frame) but all others were handmade in BC or in the case of the hummer, the US.

    Thanks for your input I was confused as they clearly stand as a truly Canadian company in my mind.

    Glad I was wrong about where Cove bikes are made.Maybe I was thinking about Banshee.All are great companies who do what they have to in order to survive/compete.I guess I'll have to add a Cove to the "mostly" Canadian bikes I own.

    Yay, I figured Cove was Canadian ... I mean, the names of their bikes alone is too awesome to grace a frame made anywhere else IMO
