Every time I see mountainloz's bike I kind of regret giving mine away, even though it was broken ;)

Are you sure its US made? I thought that Marin, and specially the later ones, was made in USSR, Taiwan or China. The earliest one was made of Sandvik 3/2.5 straight guage in US... ?

Nice build though!


I presume you're referring to my Diamond Back? :D

And yes, it is US made ;) ......

That Klein somehow looks surprised.

Is the Giant made in the USA or designed in the USA. Can't see the sticker. Would be very surprised if not Far East built but stand to be corrected.
