    Double Agents

    I know that the formula hubs are rebadged as iro and that the biachi pista frame is the same as several other entry-level bikes. So do you know of any other parts that are rebadged as something different?

    nashbar cross fork is the same as the winwood, a lot of carbon forks are the same company. I don't think the pista is the same as other bikes, but the khs and such are.

    most Nashbar components are rebadged (or debadged) gear from big name brands and sold at big discounts. My Nashbar flip-flop hub looks identical to one that Soma is selling now, but the hub is probably manufactured by a third company.

    Kinesis, and Maxway make the bulk of the worlds frames (as specialized, Giant, Trek, Bianci, Surly, and %90 of other bikes out there) , and there are probably like six or seven parts mfgs that make up an equally huge part of the OEM spec. Formula hubs are definitely one of the bigger bearing/hub mfgs making parts for specialized, bontrager, WTB, Velocity, and a huge list of other companies.
    Sugino is actually a big rebadger too. Their RD cranks are rebadged OEM for a lot of different companies.
