    Incorrect as always.

    These Chinese Companies sell consumer direct. We sell OEM/ODM. If you understood the difference I would be surprised.

    We have Novatec wheels on our website but we don't...

    Right. Like I'm going to share private conversations between vendors, customers and myself relating to my business on the interwebs.
  3. No.

    No.

    Ok. So you would add them to the list. Fine. Feel free.

    My experiences with them would make me do otherwise.
  5. That's not what I said (and my feeling is that...

    That's not what I said (and my feeling is that you're just looking to contradict anything I post).

    Remember about 5 years ago there was a sudden explosion of Chinese Consumer direct sellers on...

    Far Sports seems to be the front runner at the moment. They are doing consumer direct as well as supplying several small "brands" ( sticker brands) with product as well. They are one of the brands...

    They wouldn't be on my list.

    Also incorrect.

    There are several carbon rim factories in Taiwan.
  9. No.

    No.
  10. If you stick with the more established Mainland...

    If you stick with the more established Mainland Chinese vendors you'll probably be fine. Avoid random Aibaba/eBay sellers. That's a total crap shoot.

    I think he was talking about gear inches? And overlap?

    By this I mean the fact that even if you do a straight up count of cogs and chainrings and arrive at 22 possible combinations, calculating...

    I've certainly McGivered hubs (among other things) to make them work over the years but it's not the best long term solution and not one that works in every circumstance for everyone. In reality...

    ^^^ stay true to yourself and never let an opportunity pass, my friend.

    I'd disagree with false flat. I've lived in lots of hilly and mountainous areas and there have been times where I'm a bit...

    Thx for the responses. It's good to know that this is as nebulous as it appears.

    That's not entirely correct.

    Since the 10/11 SPD freehub is 1.85mm longer than the 8/9/10spd freehub the worst case scenario impacts both OLD and center to flange dimensions by just that much.

    Syntace x12 explained?

    I thought I had this down but I'm now getting questions that are making me look at this again.

    Yes..I did a search. Nothing definitive was found.

    So Syntace x12 is 142mm endcap to endcap with a...

    Hanger alignment.

    It's pretty easy to wack the der and throw this out of adjustment. I'd get it checked.

    My other thought is a bent tooth on the front chainring. It's less likely but can have...
  19. Since it works on the small ring on all gears...

    Since it works on the small ring on all gears neither the chain nor the limit screws are an issue.

    Since it jumps off the bottom pulley the B-Limit screw is not an issue as it would primarily...

    I read the thread in the beginning but was away a missed a few pages. When I came back I just clicked on the last page because I was too lazy to go back and sift through the bickering to find plot...

    Bertrand is not Marinoni.

    I raced on one in the 89's. Gilles Bertrand was a small, custom builder. His work was excellent.

    I'd suggest you post in C&V forum.

    Honestly, no. It just isn't possible.

    Even if you go there and physically stand in the middle of a factory, there is no way of knowing who OWNS the factory. You would have to start digging into...

    How are they unfounded? I am relaying what I was told during a meeting about another matter involving this company, specifically, as well as a few others.

    I 100% guarantee they'll tell you they are a manufacturers and that they own their factory and all the tools. Try to find a China seller that doesn't make that claim.
