Wheeler & Hasa bikes?

Does anyone know much about Wheeler and Hasa bikes made in Taiwan?
They seem to have some road and hybrids running full Ultegra at fairly good prices.
Advice, insight would be apprecaited.
cheers

I'm in Melbourne, Australia ... just saw the Wheeler (I think it's the same frame and maker as the Hasa) online with an ultegra group set for AUD$1200, which is about the same in US$. Alloy frame carbon.
Hadn't heard of the bikes before and wondering if the Taiwanese brands have a good wrap.

We got our frames here: http://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/

I've been riding mine for about 2 years now, and I've been pleased with it. Rowan has had his for about a year or so, and I think he's happy with it as well.

You might go to Cycling Deal and have a look at them.

I'm in Taiwan and just bought a Wheeler Trekking Lite 3700 hybrid about 3 weeks ago. So far I'm very pleased with it. A lot of bikes, if not most, built in Taiwan for foreign markets aren't available here, but my shop had one sitting in the far back corner like maybe he got it on trial and never sold it. Aluminum frame, Shimano Alivio componenets, and 700cx40 Kenda tires are great for commuting, running errands, and rides with friends.
Looking for Wheeler online I came across a lot of websites in German and what looks like an Eastern European language, and a few sites in UK and Austrsalia.
