"Ride or die" on the top tube, but ROBOTS are curious if Turman's killed anyone yet. Doubtful.

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments for and against, which should be the standard of quality news. Better to be educated than insulated.

I really hoped I would never read "Trump, Democrats, or Republicans" on any thread title on this site...

It brings back jobs to the USA which makes us a stronger industrial power player in the world market.

If you instantly assume that "you'll pay more money" because it's made in the US then we're having the wrong debate.

“Some domestic manufacturers of bikes and accessories support the latest round of tariffs, especially in light of the March tariffs on steel and aluminum, which benefitted their competitors who imported complete products. For example, Chris Fortune, the president and owner of Saris Cycle Group, wrote a commentary posted on BRAIN Monday in support of the tariffs.”

"These increased tariffs will help level the playing field for American manufacturers like Saris. We are not asking for special treatment, but rather for an equal playing field in a nondiscriminatory business environment. We are invigorated by competition and our commitment to American craftsmanship continues to serve us well. However, without these tariffs, we will be facing an unfair disadvantage. Our competitors will have cost advantages that will be incredibly difficult to overcome," Fortune wrote.

So this is good news for American manufacturing. Maybe now more American bike companies can start making their bikes here again. I would much rather buy American.

So instead of gutting the environment in foreign countries to get our excess and unnecessaries out of sight and therefore purged from our conscious thought about the harm, pollution and destruction we cause wanting more until all the toxic excess from spending sprees comes floating back across the oceans and causes us to ban straws...we gotta make our stuff here and maybe try to drown in our own squalor by maybe trying to tone it down a bit and make bikes more responsibly here.
