    Bit random and not sold by them, but the people who make their bars also make these quite dangerous looking "anybars".

    For those of you who want to know how i know this is who makes there stuff, its written at the top of the CEN certificate they have on their website!

    What the blinking flip?

    Why are they dangerous? They look pretty safe to me.

    Inserts will make the bar quite strong won't they?

    just noticed the oneone/nukeproof seatposts are identical to the control tech ones. take your pick at prices between Β£35 and Β£65 for the same thing

    Nukeproof carbon forks are the same as the exotic forks just Β£70 more for the decal.

    Nukeproof = rebadge and double the price

    Mugs theres one born every minute

    it's all about branding,,, there are people out there who pay to have purple anodized parts,,, they must be performance enhancing as they cost more

    Hey One Eared Preston leave tangobravo alone – It's a good job there are such experts on this forum, they even win awards I hear.

    "Something that looks a bit weird is made by same company that makes things for a company that I appear not to like" shocker.

    Tangobravo – do you have a problem with shedfire?

    It seems rather odd.

    Why do you quote the source of your 'findings'?

    Got to say… i really like the stuff. Its sensibly priced, got some balls behind it and there doesn't seem to be any BS involved either.

    Its also really nice that Brant actually makes a point of designing real kit rather than buying job lots of tat from large trade shows and sticking some logos on it like some.

    Which would you rather have in an industry, innovation or regurgitation. I like the former. Thats why I get behind it.

    Thanks very much for the seemingly irrelevant inclusion of Ragley/Shedfire in this PSA.

    Several of you need to dismount some mighty high horse there.

    Where did the OP say that they didn't like On-One or Ragley? They simply said that a company that supplies them makes some interesting looking bars which in their opinion look dangerous. Some of you lot read way too much into stuff.

    I'm all for the transparency. I'd like to know a lot more about the taiwanese cycle part industry. I like my on-one just like the next person, but I'm bothered that it can't be made here for an economic price, and that's before we start taking about environmental impact of moving bits of metal all around the world

    Could someone write a paper on it for all our education?

    didnt expect all this stuff on the fan ,,, shame i have been out this morning missed all the fun

    Just to be 100% transparent .

    On-one bars , are not made by aricle , they are made by our friends at PMT , who we think the best tubing manufacturer and bar maker in the world . Not sure who brant is working with now but we had many visits to PMT and had to explain to them why their own label bars were not a big seller .

    Seeing a bar being made through the various stages of cold drawing , forming , and bending is quite a joyous experience .

    PMT produce bars for the likes of Easton , Profile , Deda , Bontrager , and really are the place to go if you want to bend aluminum into handlebars of various shapes and sizes .

    They also produced the frame tubes for klein back in the day.
