How many *UK* bike brands are there?
Not made in the UK, are Oranges HT’s still made over seas too?
I think he was basing it on who its made for “bikes being designed and specified in the UK, for the UK” no not where its made ” whether the frames are manufactured here or abroad”
Yep the UK is a special place that is very different to the rest of the world 🙂 In modern times most frames will be suited to UK riding.Posted 4 years ago
The other one to consider is Hand Made is no measure of quality.
Well the OP mentioned Kinesis, so that pretty much defines the thread imo.
I guess it means you should also include Pinnacle and maybe (haven’t looked it up) the Edingurgh Bike Co-op brand Revolution.
For parts, it would therefore also include Choctopron – or at least the stuff he’s designed himself as opposed to just rebranding.Posted 4 years agoChrisLSubscriber

There’s quite a lot of design in the UK but not so much manufacturing:
I have a Kinesis which says – “designed in the UK” and a Moda that says “Designed and built in the UK”Posted 4 years ago
AFAIK – Whyte, Genesis, design here and manufacture overseas. Moda do most overseas and only some manufacturing here. Only Pashly remain as an entire design and manufacture brand in the UK. I would be happy to be corrected.
