Unfortunately no, they are a global company that mass produces in central Asia and basically the discounts go to the HUGE bulk buyers.

Actually, mostly in China, Malaysia and Singapore, which are not in central Asia. But your main point is correct, the production is mostly outside Japan.

Actually as many cultures believe in multi deities shouldn't that be " for the love of the Gods mate"? i.e that Zulu movie "The gods must be angry"
But what happens if I don't beleive in God/s - can I replace it with any word i like, like Math or Springyflaydo?

Basically no it won't, actually due to the JCF killing the MTB racing scene here in Japan, MTB parts here are actually more expensive than over seas. - also used parts are very rare to come by, I actually got a great deal on my old XT groupset when upgrading to XTR 10 speed.
