Is this thing really machined from a solid block of aluminum and made in the USA???

Yes, we designed it to be bulletproof. The FATDAPTER® fat bike fork mount adapter and stainless axle are machined in Wisconsin, USA. The cam lever is is sourced from a US company who has them custom made in Taiwan. Nearly 2 years later the Patent is pending and the Trademark is registered.

FATDAPTER® is the only 1pc solid body, fully machined, non-welded, non-tubular, non-painted roof rack adapter on the market
