Industry guy from Taiwan

Howdy all,

I've worked in the bike industry since the mid 80's (yes that's 1980's). I live and work in Taiwan. I think this gives me an interesting perspective on manufacturing and issues related to production, material choices and an inside track on who actually makes what.

That certainly doesn't mean I know it all (even if I THINK I do!). I have been removed from retail for several years so, even though I am still on my bike very day, lack a wide sampling of end user experiences with product.

Hope I can offer useful advice and can find answers to those niggling questions that keep me awake at night.

Hello Bob, I hope you will see fit to stop by Classic & Vintage every so often and see if you can help us out with puzzling bicycle IDs...

Welcome to BF!
