“Last month, I published a blog devoted to BMX brands selling and manufacturing US-made BMX frames. During the course of compiling that blog, I noticed that the costs of some US-made frames were actually becoming cheaper than that of some brands manufacturing frames overseas. And in the blog’s intro, I noted that some frames, such as S&M frames made in the USA, were sometimes cheaper than Taiwan-produced frames, such as Sunday. Of course, comparing the costs alone, without analyzing the story behind the costs of the frames wasn’t what I had intended to do. Afterwards, Sunday’s Jim Cielencki contacted me to discuss the reasoning behind why some Sunday frames were retailing for prices higher than US-made frames. According to Jim, “We never went to Taiwan to get a better cost on our frames. We went there because the ideas that we wanted to do were not available in the USA and are still not available today.”– Brian Tunney, ESPN.
