Never really thought of this

Well the companies all have their bikes made int eh country that produces the greatest amount of forgeries. And I dare say they are likely made int eh same factories that make the originals. They could be factory seconds or late night “second” shoft kind of deals. And when you have top of the line products costing upwards of $15-20 thousand, they are obviously going to be targets.

What I find funny is watching posts on forums where many of these Chinese companies are no longer bothering to make true counterfeits. Now they steal the basic design add a different name and sell them over ebay for cheap. You can ride a top of the line sort of almost looks like a Cervelo for under $1000. But they don’t claim it is a Cervelo and the tubes are a little different. Same goes for Carbon wheels.
