Most of the major bike companies import their frames. It's even true for Colnago.

 

Now there are exceptions to this rule :

You're right about their TOTL lugged frames, but according to this article (link below) the other ones (monocoque) are not made in italy anymore...

If you live in Colorado (or might be passing though) and like to downhill Keystone or Winter Park are are the best lift accessed places in CO IMO.  If you are more interested in XC then I might suggest Vail or Breckenridge; however, non-lift accessed  bike trails might be just as suitable (and are usually free).  

 

If you have never downhilled (DH) before you can usually rent gear to try it out; however, in my experiences DH has a steep learning curve and might not be very much fun for a beginner especially if they don't have much experience in trail riding.  I've had friends that have been riding XC and dirt jumps their entire lives come out and think that DH at Keystone is too gnarly for them. I love it, but I've heard lots of people that DH say that there is something wrong with everyone that loves DH.

I was wondering. 

Have any of you guys ever heard of, bought from, or rode, a bike from Hammerhead Bikes?

I have a vested interest you see, the founder, Charles, is my dad.

So, the singlespeed project is now painted although not hugely well (it was done in sketchy weather, with spray cans, and the primer and lacquer seemed to no like each other (my friend who is a painter came to help me and was baffled by the whole thing. We got an ok result in the end. The bike is now back together, I just need to buy a saddle, some tires and a chain tensioner. and It'll be good to go. The owner of the local bike store tolde me (after showing it to him, and getting the bb fitted (I cross threaded the plastic cup trying very carefully to do it myself... ) That I must name it Bob, (black on black) it's not stealth by any means,  but we'll see.
