Hayes Components Factory Tour - Hayes Components Factory Tour - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

One snowy day this spring, Vital MTB was greeted by the Hayes Components truck in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We hopped in and headed to the first of two major facilities in the area, where we would take a factory tour and see some really interesting things. Because Hayes Components (formerly known as the Hayes Bicycle Group) is the parent company that oversees Hayes Disc Brakes, Sun Ringle, Wheelsmith, Answer Products, and Manitou, there was a lot of cool stuff to cover. Without further ado, let’s go inside!
