ScreenWasher, I read this yesterday after following a link (not sure which thread it was in).

The article is quite interesting. It is a shame there is not an Oregon / Washington based 'large scale' manufacturer of bikes. I am keen to learn TIG or MIG welding, whichever is best suited to Aluminum and then have a go at making utility trailers. I think there could be sufficient demand in the Pacific Northwest to make it a viable concern.

Thanks for posting this. I just noticed in the new Cascade club newsletter that several Oregon bike builders will be showing their bikes at the Seattle Bike Expo this year (early March).
