An observation I had,
while looking at a couple of mfg's web sites, just for grins and giggles I clicked on Euro instead of USA, and low and behold 5 times the selection in a single model catagory. Both of these where USA companies. What gives? More people ride in Europe, hence better selection for the consumer? One in particular I am interested in has a high end and medium line bike I like, then clicked over to European bikes and there it was an inbetweener exactly as I would want to buy it. Do any of the "USA" mfg's (I do realize that most are mfg'd overseas) allow a "custom" order? "I want bike X but in European spec"
