Most bike companies dont actually make their products. They design them then send the specs to a manufacturer to be built.

Schwinn and GT were bought by Pacific(the co. that makes bikes to be sold at places like k-mart/walmart) what a shame

I think my Haro was made in Taiwan. It has a little sticker on the front right above the fork.
