I've had two LBS's tell me in the past couple of months that Cannondale was now having a much higher percentage of their frames made in Asia. Haven't confirmed this yet, but both were knowledgeable bike guys who didn't seem to be grinding an ax.
Apparently this is a sister company to Pacific Cycles, but headed by the ex-Pacific Cycles prez. I have seen a stronger commitment to producing high quality bikes after this guy took over Pacific. So Cannondale's overall quality may not be endangered. But I would not be surprised to see more of their production move to Asia.
