@Beth thanks for the question! The quick answer is that our Co-op Cycles bikes are designed by our in-house team at REI's HQ near Seattle, manufactured with trusted partners in Asia, and ultimately fine-tuned by REI mechanics across the US. We look around the world for the best factories to make the co-op's gear and apparel and our sourcing decisions are based on factories' technical expertise and their ability to deliver the highest quality products at competitive prices and in alignment with our values.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
