Nothing expresses a lack of confidence in your product quite like this... Goes to show that the 'Made in America' has as much value quality wise as 'Made in China'.

@chileconqueso: Comparing a company like GG to Trek, Santa Cruz etc is like comparing your local artisan bakery to Warburtons.

But the expertise is in Taiwan. The idea that something being made in China/Taiwan automatically means it is an inferior product has long gone and basically pure nationalism. Yes you have to keep an eye on the QA (who doesn't? Looking at you ENVE. Looking at you Orange with your welding) but while you can make shit really cheap there, you can also get really really nice stuff made there if you pay for it.
