@Brian,

All of American Classic's components are made in Taiwan these days (except for the carbon rims and most of their spokes). However, most of the US sold wheels are built at their facility in Tampa. Most of their OEM wheels are built in Taiwan.

Most of their production switched to Taiwan over five years ago.

Maybe their name should change to Taiwan Classic, jk... I have no problem with parts being made overseas...
