  • Not made in Taiwan, Asia
  • YAWN…………..

    Is it the time of the month for this thread alread?

    Hope everything, or DT hubs
    DT spokes/rims
    renthal bars/post
    midleburn (although not UK anymore, Italy IIRC)
    brookes saddle
    continental tyres (at least the expensive ones)
    take your pick when it comes to frames there must be 100's

    renthal or tallon will probably machine you a SS sprocket,

    IIRC magura are still in germany for the forks, and some marzocchi are coming back to italy?

    you'll struggle for chain and grips unless you just got for roadie tape or home made leather ones.

    SRAM are American owned and built in Tiawan.

    Why not? Transmissions are stressed on-road too.

    General FAQ (from web)

    Where are middleburn parts manufactured?
    All Middleburn parts are manufactured at our UK workshop.

    Have they not updated their website? That dissapoints me a little.

    I'm wondering if you could build a bike using locally made components from top to bottom (locally meaning UK, Ireland and the rest of western Europe)
    I'm guessing that there may be problems when it comes to raw materials and a bit of leeway may have to be given, but could it be done?

    So…

    Middleburn crankset.
    Hope brakes, hubs
    Mavic rims
    Sapim spokes
    Michelin/Hutchinson tyres (Schwalbe?)

    Some Sram stuff is still made in Germany, but which bits? Anyone?

    I was thinking about the length of the arm on the rear mech more than anything. Might be ok for a 29'er, but for 26"?
