While most low-cost bicycles commonly sold in the U.S are almost guaranteed to have been made in Eastern factories in China or Taiwan, there are many small-scale and artisan companies that create their unique bicycles completely with American parts and labor.
Online PR News – 28-March-2012 – Bellingham, WA – In the U.S, a vast majority of bicycles and their parts are made overseas, leading to growing consideration among the national cycling community about how to buy such products that have been manufactured completely in America.
The report, “Is Anybody Still Building Bikes in America,” released by AmericanCyclist.com, targets this concern and presents a number of different options for finding and buying domestic cycles. It discusses which large bike corporations have outsourced their manufacturing and how local companies that are left continue to stand by the quality of their hand-built products.
While most low-cost bicycles commonly sold in the U.S are almost guaranteed to have been made in Eastern factories in China or Taiwan, there are many small-scale and artisan companies that create their unique bicycles completely with American parts and labor. Though the cost of such bikes often reflect the high quality of the end product, buying from these businesses supports local economy, the environment, and the sentiments of the increasingly popular ‘buy-local’ philosophy.
The report also includes an online resource of bike companies that keep their production and components domestic and personal. This resource and the researched information provided comes at an opportune time for cyclists to find their next bicycle before the cycling season begins with a wide variety of summer events throughout the nation.
AmericanCyclist.com seeks to strengthen and support the national cycling community by providing a comprehensive resource for organizations, businesses, local events, and websites that encourage cycling across the country. In order to promote awareness for bicycling and those who enjoy the sport, AmericanCyclist welcomes anyone who appreciates the environmental, economic, and health benefits of cycling to contribute to the site’s growing momentum.
