Which paint shop was that? It was already very difficult getting slots with the main ones.Posted 1 week ago

That fairly shoddy looking building is one of the main players in the painting of the planet’s high end mountain bikes?Posted 1 week ago
Ha, yes. You’ll find thats basically the way it works out there, hence why its much cheaper (labour costs are not way cheaper – the average salary is 50% of here, but its distorted vs the UK with the relative lack of very high earning bankers and the like).
Buildings are always functional – they just don’t value a shiny ediface as we do, they’re utilitarian and sparse in the main. Even the associated office buildings have a bland functional kind of feel to them.Posted 1 week ago

I mean compared to the Marino ‘factory’ at least this one had a roof (pre fire). Some of the pictures from Marino show a building that’s barely still standing in places 🤣Posted 1 week ago

Works for me. Raw finish on all my current bikes, but I’d be lying if I said I deliberately aimed to achieve that.Posted 1 week ago
Couldn’t get the translation to work. Hopefully no one hurt. And my new bike wasn’t in it!Posted 1 week ago
I wonder what that translates to in terms of bike production disruption?
Oops. Just a couple of samples thankfully.
That got quite warm, didn’t it.Posted 1 week ago
