Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Made in America?

With so much made oversees is it possible to make a bike entirely from US Manufacturers?  The answer would be a resounding NO.  There are great US customer builders that can make the frame and guys like Paul Components and White Industries for a few components but when its comes to derailers and shifters good luck! 

Click the link below for an interesting video on building a home using only 5% materials from US manufacturers.  According to the video by using only 5% you can create 220,000 jobs in America

So with that said, help me get as close to an ALL AMERICAN MADE bike.  Spec me out a bike using only US Manufacturers. I am interested in seeing what you come up with. Email me at Bicyclefriends@gmail.com
