Rocky Mountain Hammer and Blizzard frames made in Canada???

The person trying to sell me a R.M. Blizzard 07' frame told me the Hammer is actually made in Taiwan, whereas the higher end Blizzard is made in Canada!? REALLY? Isn't Hammer (725-CrMo) and Blizzard (853-CrMo) both hand built in their proud Canada factory, as the sticker on bike says?

Greatly appreciated if you can provide me some more insight info! Thanks.
I currently ride a 2001 Hammer. Past bikes: 1998 R.M. Hammer & 1996 R.M. Cardiac.

I think he may be right... for the '07 and newer models.

Your '01 hammer is probably Canadian-built as well.

You could email Rocky and see if they will give you the answer. Made and built do not always mean the same thing.
