Made in Taiwan ...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

So Thomson now too try to make the most of nothing.
If I buy Thomson it is for the design and the manufacturing.
So here we have just another handlebar.
Easton can do better

Hey Jerome,

I understand you posted this a while ago, but... You should know that some of the finest products available in the cycling world are coming out of Taiwan these days. If USA-made is your priority, I certainly understand, but this Thomson bar represents absolutely no sacrifice in quality or design relative to an American-made version if Thomson were to bring manufacturing of this bar to the States.

To be honest, I don'y think "made in Taiwan" or "made in china" are equal to low quality. I compared many products that made in different countries (USA, Brazil, China, India, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore and Japan) I believe that USA-made is not the best among others and Taiwan-made is surely not the worst. Besides, I really hate the quality of "made in Indonesia"
