Actually although the bike may be assembled in Canada, I feel pretty confident that the frame set for the Guru Crono is actually made at the same production facilities that manufacture the Kuota Kalibur and Kestrel Talon (maybe even Isaac Joule) somewhere in Tiawan or Malaysia!

OLver might be correct on this one. I had extensive discussion with the production manager at intrbike last year. Our discussion of the pains of carbon production lead me to believe they were doing the fab in his Canada factory.

Although you never know when something gt perfected, its easliy moved to an Asian facility to reduce cost.

Gurus are pretty nice bikes, I first saw them in person a few years ago down at Schwab Cycles. People forget there are some pretty good builders up in Canada.
