    They're made by SAPA in Portland, OR, if memory serves me right. All the welding and machining is done there. Not sure of what make the tubing is, however.

    Worth

    The Pack top and down tube is made by Worth in Tennesee. The seat tube and stays are done in Oregon by SAPA, then welded by SAPA. Heat treated machined

    Tubes

    All of the tubing except the Highline top and down and the Pack top and down are made by SAPA. They have drawing machines, but not for the rad shapes like the pack and hiline.
