Well?


WTF? I walked into Cycle Gear earlier in the week and saw a pile of these. No, we've got nothing to do with it. Thanks, guys. And after all the tires and oil I've bought from my local Cycle Gear. I bet Bell is stoked on the logo too. Nice work, fellas.

Cycle Gear is the Walmart of motorcycle parts. pay an extra dollar or two here and there and support your local(not big chain) moto shop.

This is a microcosm of why the US is so fucked. We don't have any original ideas, and we dont make shit anymore.. we just steal it, make it overseas and try to make a quick buck. Sad. I get more and more adamant about made in the USA the older I get.

Just goes to show, it doesn't take guns to win a war. The chinese have invaded our country and we're in the kitchen making them tea. Fucking sad.

Lets be honest - All shit is made in China.. Hell - Biltwell product is made in Taiwan.... If you want home grown, built product you need to build it yourself, or buy it from a local builder... nuf said...

From what one of the workers at cycle gear told me, the helmet is made by bell just for cycle gear.

Yeah, I don't blame the factories for this, I just think it seems kind of shady that whatever American product development guy thought it was a good idea. It just creates confusion. Or maybe we're so small they didn't even know we existed and it's just a coincidence? Who knows? And yeah, it looks like a "House Brand" for Cycle Gear.
