I think it's OK that the bikes are welded up in Taiwan. It's sad about the loss of American jobs, but oh well. America doesn't manufacture much anymore and that is that.

Where are the bits that get welded together coming from? Is the aluminum made on Taiwan and the tubes formed and the various bits formed and machined on Taiwan?

The same for the carbon bits.

The assembled in Taiwan thing is a done deal and we have a grip on that, but what about all the bits and the base stock? What is the pedigree of all that stuff I wonder?
