Just watched the vid.  That's some cool stuff!!  Now I know why they can ask as much as they do for the bikes we ride.  Those machines cost an arm and a leg.
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

finally remembered to watch this when I was at home. That is some pretty neat stuff! I always wondered how they used the machines to build a wheel.

now that pacific cycle just bought cannondale, I wonder what will happen with the quality.  pacific has had great success taking quality brands and turning them into Wal-Mart bikes.

I would wager they move the manufacturing over to taiwan like the rest of the bike companies they own

Pacific Cycle didn't buy C-dale, Dorel bought C-dale. And really, Mongoose was a Walmart company until Dorel bought them, now they make a few decent quality bikes again.
