While perusing the video’s on bicycle manufacturing I thought it might be interesting to share a few more videos I stumbled over. I decided to start with the high-end beginning with Seven Cycles & a hand-crafted custom and end with Giant’s final assembly line in Taiwan. Stacked in between is a 2008 video shot at Co-Motion so that we’d have some tandem content, Colnago’s Italian-based carbon frame fabrication, some video from the former US-based Cannondale, then what looks to be Canada-based CCM big-box store bike fabrication.
There are many, many videos like this from a variety of builders, but I thought this progression was pretty interesting based on seeing how the scale of production changes the value proposition. Also note that Co-Motion’s production model is pretty darn close to Seven Cycles; yes, we’re talking hand-crafted bikes.
