In the era of the knowledge economy, knowledge comprises the core of economic growth, making the exploration of the spatial organization of knowledge generation an important issue. This study clarifies the knowledge generation process. In terms of the development mode, the Taiwanese bicycle industry can be geographically divided into northern, central, and southern regions. Each area possesses its own independent system with related and cooperative factories. Dajia, located in central Taiwan, is the most mature of the three. The geographical closeness of and industrial cooperation between community structures allow them to share resources, reduce deal prices, and promote professional investment. Even social networks can be exploited to produce and promote creativity. Therefore, this investigation proposed utilizing knowledge groups to understand spatial organizational style, with particular reference to villages. The study results demonstrate that the knowledge activities conducted in Dajia bicycle village are determined by the composition of the village, cooperation within the industry, and effective support from industrial and social resources.
