I'm interested in knowing why some people have a problem with their bike products being made in non European/ American countries(throw japan in there too).
I have seen people freak out when they find out that their 6000 dollar carbon fiber Italian branded bike was made and assembled in Taiwan. Look if the performance of the frame is up to par and the factory operates under legitimate conditions. What is there to be so pissed about?
Correct me if i am wrong. But i think this is essentially some sort of masked/hidden racism rearing its head.
This idea that Taiwanese and Chinese are incompetent and unable to produce products good enough for the "first world".
