the CEO of Shenzhen B&K Rechargeable Battery, madam Gao Ping saw the need to bring a high quality line of lithium powered bikes to North America, and to do it in such a way that the line became a resource for jobs and American pride.

seems like they're channeling the old EV warrior somehow.
As always, it depends what you mean by "made"...Jason27 wrote:Those bikes are not made in the usa.
The line includes 4 models and all will go through detailed assembly, advanced finishing and quality testing in this new 10,000+ square foot facility in Las Vegas and shipped to dealers throughout North America.

"Assembled in USA", or "finished in USA", or "Quality tested in USA"
I smell marketing BS!
Yea, communism. I'm done with American styled capitalism! At least old school versions. The David Korten & Gar Alperovitz America Beyond Capitalism approach is the way for us to go. New Economy stuff. So, more on topic, can we get our act together and build a factory for a truly made in America ecycle? One that partners in an appropro way with the global economy - think Agniusm's kit from Lithuania, all Shimano for most of the bike parts, but with A123 cells from the Michigan plant, some areoengineering company for a composite frame, that kind of thing. If the batteries & frame are "local" economy American, then its at least 50% made here, so sufficiently domestic.
