I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject, so please correct me if I'm wrong. But I think that if it was made somewhere outside the US it would have to say that. Since it doesn't say anything I'm assuming that it was made in the USA, but used some parts/materials from other countries, which I believe is what they've always done.
Do you think LM is trying to hit a new market with the Freestyle, or just puting out a new product for existing customers? If so, what marekts do you think would like the Freestyle?
In 10 years I see LM in Portland, Oregon.I hope they improve the rust issues though.
