    Yea, my '98 Mt Vision Pro says "Designed in the USA!". I wish they still made their own frames, but they'd probably be out of business if they went to that trouble in this day and age.

    What's the point of even putting "California" on the logo? They make some seriously nice bikes. I've always been a fan of their hardtails, but cut the ********. It's made in China. Pass on the savings and be done with it.

    Dood...........If someone bought a made in america bike and took the sticker off just because they had some sort of anti-american thing, you'd call him an idiot

    Its a great frame give the country that made it, the credit it deserves

    P.S. ..the typo?.....you should see how funny some of the things translated from english to cantonese look to a chinaman
    DON'T TELL ME I'M STILL ON THAT FECKIN' ISLAND! ....

    who says that though?


    If some dude actually said that to me about my Enduro SL (bike jealousy) I'd have to invite him to the bathroom for a swirly.

    I've only ever had people just grin and say "nice bike, man." with that knowing glow in their eye. The club of people who own high end $1,000+ bicycles.

    As Larry the cable guy would say; "Now that's some funny sh*t right there"! LOL
    I finally made it. And when I'm not online, I ride a Marin Mount Vision 5.7 to the top of the world and back.
