I'd love to have one from Africa, or South America (a Canopus would be great). European bikes, a given, Canadian, US, Chinese (for themselves and others), Japanese are well known (not sure about carbon but steel, for sure).

Any others? A list would be great. I know Calfee has worked in Africa for years, but are there other South Amercicn builders other than Caloi and Canopus?

Ugh, look at that crappy weld at the headtube! No seat tube?? Looks like it's just plain-jane seamed tubing bent into odd shapes. Also looks like a very weak frame, where it will easily bend at the saddle, or break at the headtube weld. Why would you want to pay for shipping and customs on a piece of junk like this? I'd bet you could find a welder locally to copy this design for less than that!
