I'm betting that the frames that are rusting were fabricated in China. There are just too many examples of slip shod products coming out of that country. I'm hoping that US companies will get tired of further risking their company's reputations and start bringing the manufacturing back to America. That will help our unemployment and underemployment crisis.
