It’s good to be a patriot. It might be a little bit complicated as well. Especially when we talk about bike parts USA.
International economics of scale and low costs has forced to move many factories to cheaper countries.
What’s left in USA?
Such as Shimano, of course. Many bikes, even bikes made in the USA, come with Shimano components. This multinational Japanese manufacturer offers almost everything you need on your bike.
So, where is the USA input?
As I mentioned, many USA bike producers use Shimano components. I’m not sure whether Shimano has any factories back in USA.
It looks like they have limited their affairs to repair and guarantee services.
However, work places are created and quality guaranteed by assembling bikes with Shimano components in USA.
Offer worth your consideration.
