Love Marin!!! Speaking of Enduro racing -- Question --- do you think there's a market for Enduro racing on the same property on a somewhat regular basis? *** I have an invite to use a large piece of land where I can host XC and Enduro races frequently. I think there's a market for it but, around here, only a few companies offer racing, let alone on a regular basis.

for a while Marzocchi had: "Designed in Italy, Made in Taiwan on their boxes" Fox bought em so, I don't know what's going to be the end result there. right now, you can't find nuttin' other than a few seal kits at BTI Then there's Titus ---- I'm not sure what happened there. There's a mention of Pivot Cycles and On-One having something to do with them. I don't think Titus ever went to China for labor but, they sure did piss off some dealers along the way but, if they're tied in with Planet X (On-One) they dipped out and gave labor over to China. damn, the more I start thinking about all this -- in a way it bugs me but, in a way I can understand why they do it. much of it is our own damn fault too. late/hate relationship for sure

is this MADE IN CHINA a bad thing as far as quality? ehh... I don't think so. There's lots of bikes I sell that are made in China and I have had very few moments where I had to pull the warranty card... this topic runs pretty deep.. there's a shit-ton of products made in china, it's not just bikes. I for one loved the days of Race Face when they were made in Canada --- that stuff was hard to beat. it's still a pretty good brand but, quality has dropped (if you ask me). man, I could go on and on about this subject

Tell me about it... more and more bike brands are selling out to the "MADE IN CHINA" phase. I had several brands that had MADE IN USA stamped on the frame somewhere and it was a strong selling point for a good long time. Santa Cruz was the first to sell out.... ticked me off cause the prices didn't go down like you would expect. worse, they didn't really inform dealers -- it just happened. Dean was another brand I sold frequently cause it had that MADE IN USA quality. The Ti products they made was spot-on fantastic.. Now Dean calls it: Made by our partners in Asia. Evil took the same route.. Not sure what became of Mountain Cycle and I cant remember if they were ever MADE IN USE or Canada.. sorta drawn a blank on that brand. Banshee -- was made in China from the get go?

how is it possible Amazon had the Tr500's lower than the prices we had them on sale for? although it was brief, they had them cheaper than our price by about $50 and I know for a fact Tranny doesn't sell to Amazon. they were listed for about 3 days but I don't see them posted now. hard to believe..
