New Taiwanese-built Kronans...anyone have one?

I was reading the specifications for the Kronan Classic Men's bicycle from the .pdf on this page:

http://kronanusa.com/answers.php

where it states that the bicycle is built in Taiwan. I believe the originals were built in Sweden, and had a good reputation. When there were no more originals, new bikes were built in Poland(?) and some have reported issues with quality control.

Now Kronans are built in Taiwan, I'm curious about the quality of these newer Kronans. Does anyone have one of these Taiwanese machines? How do you like it?

I ended up finding the answer to the question I posed. The writer of this review from July 2009 specifically states that he had one of the older Polish bikes years ago, and bought a new 2009 Chinese (Taiwanese?) Kronan.
In his review, he specifically states that build quality of the Asian bike is equal to the European bike. He talks about how much fun it is to ride, in general a very positive review.
