Is cervelo made by bontrager?

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

Before you ask us, do three things,
1. check the internets (not this internets the google internets)
2. check out the company's bikes, you might realize that they have absolutely NO bontrager components.
3. If all else fails, take a lead pipe and smack some sense into yourself

No, Cervelo isn't good enough to be made by Bontrager.

Don't make us pull out TdF results over the past 10 years.

But I suppose Cervelo is one of the better asian made frames.

So, you bunch of Cervelo ridin' Fred's, where exactly are their frames made? Which factory(s)? And what other frames are produced in that(ose) facility(s)? Do any of you Cervelo riders actually know where your frame was produced?

Why would I care? I like the bike. It's light. It's fast. It's comfortable.

What else matters?
