My understanding is that it's Taiwan, not China.

I consider "Made in Taiwan" a mark of quality (excellent).

I have been caught up in the Made in Italy for years. And I have always felt like if it says Made in X, then that is where it should be made! In my little mind, I like to think that the made in label means that it was grown/produced, designed, assembled, and shipped from the made in location. But I completely realize that is not the case. Hell, even if you go and get a custom steel frame, custom motor cycle, car...the damn metal came from somewhere! I mean Lets say I have "X" builder make me a frame. I want stainless for the material. The builder is going to get his tubing from someone. He may have it custom drawn to his specs/liking but he didn't make the tubes. Hell even Burke gets his carbon fiber materials from someone!

So at the end of the day, the question is does it work? Hell people have been riding Shimano for years! They aren't throwing up their hands in discontent. The shit works! It's smooth right out of the box. Granted I have a Shimano drive train on my bike right now. I have ridden Campy since indexed shifting so this was different, but it was what I could afford and got me back out on the road. It works and I can ride! I'm not a fan of how the levers shift mind you, nor do I care for Sram (had to learn how to use it because to me it was more of a feel compared to both Campy and Shimano's, this lever does this and this one does that). None the less, I'm out on my bike.

Hell, I recently had a friend pick me up some carbon wheels while he was over there and I'm just waiting for them to get here so I can try them out and see if they will actually hold up for just normal riding (not racing anyway). We shall see.

But we as American's want a deal. So if it has been proven to work and I can get it cheap then so be it. Hell my Aluminum Synaps says "Hand Made in the USA" all over it!

It is disappointing tho and I hate that my little mind was blown that "Made in X" doesn't really mean what I grew up thinking it meant.

That's correct.
Taiwan is the origin of bike pioneers. They have dedicated universities for this industry. They take pride in what they do with excellence and integrity.

As long as it is accessories like this carbon waterbottle cage, I don't have a problem with made in China. The carbon fiber accessories such as the optional spoiler and mirror covers for the Japanese-made Infiniti Q60 Coupe are made in China, for example, and their fit and finish is excellent.

I find this attitude funny, to me the value isn't in where it's made


For me it is, I do not want Made in China, I want to keep my money for my concern in Europe. It is better for Europe companies to have their Production sites in Europe better for economics and heritage as you say...

But sadly a lot of consumer goods and so on come from the far east........

Did you know that Campagnolo has super record bottles in 750ml! By the way Campagnolo bottles are made by Elite.

I think we solved his problem. BTW, did not know that Elite made bottles for Campagnolo, and im not sure what Elite bottles he tried and he is saying does not work :), but probably he'll try once more after ur reply :)

Problem solved

Thanks a lot
