Where Was My Bike Made?

I found this great article by Kerry Roberts where he gives you information about where your bike was actually made. His list dates from 2008. Since then, all of Cannondale’s production has shifted to Asia. All Colnagos except the EPS are made in Taiwan. All Pinarellos are made in Taiwan. All Kuotas are made in Taiwan. All Orbeas are made in Taiwan. All Wiliers are made in Taiwan.

All TIME frames are made in France. Just as Giant is unusual in the fact that they make their own carbon frames, the same is true for TIME.

Why is this important? It’s important for pricing. Any frame made in the US and Europe can have a premium price attached to it. Frames that aren’t can’t breach a certain logical price limit. Obviously this isn’t true for every manufacturer, especially for some who don’t want you to find out that your bike was made in Asia, like the Prince by Pinarello.
