Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

heres the company line.

SuperiorLite is a boutique custom builder developing high quality bicycles that are 100% assembled by hand in the USA by quality mechanics under strict quality control and has developed a reputation for simply building outstanding carbon bikes with some of the best dollar for performance value in the marketplace. Like a Pinnarello or Colnago, we take pride in our bicycle engineering and fabrication to the point of being obsessed with building a world class line of carbon bikes.
are the components put on in america or is the frame fabricated in house?

Tom is the Company owner and designer. He creates the designs and owns the molds. He sources to Taiwanese factory (cause they are the best or so they say) and he builds the bikes here in PA.

A Cannondale Caad 10 - white 2012 model. Ordered it at the shop about 2 hours ago, will pick it up when I'm back from holiday. It's my first road bike! Very happy.

Hutchinson Fusion 3 tubeless road tire, Stan's No-tubes fluid, 21mm tape and valve stems. I converted my rear wheel to tubeless and it went smoother than I expected. I've done two short rides and it seems to be working fine.

I think you are the one copying me, People used to call me snail because of my previous avatar but I got tired of it so I switched for an owl a long time ago(since owls are totally awesome and I'm sure you know it too)
But I couldn't drop the other nickname, meh.

Yeah after I posted that yesterday, I saw the thread on the backup bars. I am sure the pros love having 6lb teeth smashers on their rides for the tour.
