- UK designed (and made) bike parts
I’ve asked this before, but post new forum so forgotten all the answers.
I’m wanting to try and build a bike using only uk designed (and made if possible) parts. so apart from the obvious brakes, hubs and cranks, which uk companies make all the other parts I’ll need?

I’m doing the same thing. Unfortunately there is little chance of getting a bike built up with UK bike parts (whether designed in the UK, by a notionally British firm, or made in the UK). My shopping list so far:
Pace 405 frame (or an Orange 5)
Pace (DT Swiss) forks
Hope brakes, hopes, stem, seat clamp (if it is the right size)
Use seatpost and handlebars
Could go for DMR flats, but only ride spds
Brooks or Charge saddle
No chance on the shifter-derailluers
I think my aim is going to be to put as much of the budget into the UK economy.Posted 8 years agoturnipMember
Burgtec bars and post are made in taiwan as are use carbon bars.
i would suspect that clarks cables are just “packed” in the UK, therefore are classed as “made in the UK”
Pace frames are made in taiwan, then assembled in the uk
Orange hardtails are all made in taiwan, but the full sus bikes are made in halifax still
Its a bit slack when quite a few companies trade as made in brittain when half their range is either made abroad or 99% of it is done abroad. I spose its a case of where to draw the linePosted 8 years ago
