This trip to Portland has been special. Not many people get escorted from the airport and brought directly to the Chris King facilities. When I landed, Chris DiStefano picked me up and gave me a tour of the shop. We saw where the round stock aluminum came in and where it was cut down. I got to over see the machining floor and where the hub shells and headsets were assembled and finally, Chris showed me Cielo‘s facilities.
In an age of overseas manufacturing, Chris King still proudly makes all their products here in the States, from materials made in the States.
I would like to thank Chris King, Chris DiStefano and everyone else I met while at the shop. See you guys at i-bike!
