well any dealers where you live?
steel. TIG welded, parts installed, some brand name painted on the frame.
probably the contact people listed are in sales,
Most bikes are imported from one of the huge Asian contract factories.
shimano does not play favorites bottom line for components is what it is.
if you find a dealer go ride it.
how good an assembled bike is depends a lot on the people taking it out of the shipping carton
and putting it together to go on the sales floor. their attention to detail.
