Desalvo Cross: Built Local

Matt Haughey post photos of his new Desalvo Cross bike on the Buy Local Cycling site.

The bike is built as local as possible:

  1. Companies making parts locally in Oregon (DeSalvo frame, Chris King hubs & bottom bracket, Kool-Stop brake pads, Ruckus bashguard)
  2. American companies making parts in the US (Thomson stem & seatpost, Paul brakes, Selle An-Atomica saddle, Woundup Components Fork, Stans NoTubes rims & sealant)
  3. American companies making parts internationally (SRAM Force shifters & derailleurs, Salsa components, FSA crankset)

Bike Hugger is a sponsor of Buy Local and Matt is a periodic blogger for us and bro.
