    Pick one, got a few
    That was a good read and video and really opened my eyes as to just how much work goes in to a frame. That mold is no joke. Kudos to Ibis for doing it and I hope they can bring it all back here. I’d buy one.

    I wonder if the prices will go up on the frames?

    I work in a CF component manufacturing plant, we do mostly hand layup with some robotic work. Lot of manual labor.

    Very interesting and encouraging trend. MABA.

    It seems like, going forward, domestic CF product will be a real option. Fantastic :thumbsup:

    If Americans weren’t so lazy and fat and entitled it could be affordable enough to manufacture CF bike frames in the USA. Right?

    Nah, people are just too uppity and want to earn a livable wage. Ungrateful bastards.
