    Siren John Henry? He can use any slider you want, i believe. They're made in California.

    he might have some in stock. give him a shout. I think he typically uses Ahrens sliders, which are also VERY nice. I forgot why he uses them over Paragon, but he had some valid reasons if i recall.

    Gunnar, but could be up to a three week wait. They are US made and use Paragon dropouts. Get the color of the month/year, as the paint is clear coated and lasts a bit longer.

    How about built in Canada? Misfit Cycles FE frames meet that criteria.
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!
