Brad Towne asks: Are the Madones still made in Wisconsin? I liked the fact that Trek kept its top-line bikes manufacturing close to its design team.
Answer: Great question Brad! Yes, all the OCLV Madones (whether OCLV White, OCLV Black or OCLV Red) are still made in Wisconsin, just down the hall from the designers and engineers involved. In fact all manufacturing operations are carried out here: from cutting and kitting the preforms, to hand-molding, to bonding and paint, it's all done at our headquarters in Waterloo. You're right, it *is* nice to be able to keep such a close eye on things.
