The Chinese carbon is constructed of Toray 700 carbon…. Don’t really know what that is.
Where are Trek or Specialized frames made?
I can’t seem to find much info about that.
I’m slightly suspicious of the big brands, not because of quality issues but because we pay so much for badging.
Ok update time: did some in depth investigation ( sat in front of the computer reading articles) and found mucho info on American made carbon frames (trek) and how they are aerospace rated interplanetary carbon materials hand made by uber-geniuses right here in the good old US of A.
Still we pay too much for badging.
