since we launched our production 'cross and allroad frames this year, we're getting a ton of requests for a steel hardtail built in the UK. My gut feeling is that it's almost impossible to compete with the Asian frames being brought into the UK. However, we're doing some research and the mods have kindly allowed us to post a question to STW to try and get some more data.
So basically, I'd like to know what people would want from a UK built frame and what kind cost they'd expect to pay? Do you even care where the frame is built and would you pay a premium for something built here in the UK?
If you feel you have something useful to say on the subject but don't feel like posting it on the forum, that's fine just drop us an email.
