Hey guys,

Thanks for the replies.

I appreciate that branded parts have a reputation to upkeep and this reputation can be used to help evaluate quality and reliability but I'm a firm believer in the fact that just because its unbranded doesn't mean its not as good as its branded counter-part! For instance, I don't think there is much difference between a market leading branded tin of baked beans and a tin of the local super market's own brand, except the label that the distributor puts on them! With regards to bikes, noone really knows if branded manufacturers are producing their parts in factories of equal standing as factories who are making unbranded parts.

The point I'm making is that I'm not too fussed about who or who doesn't make the components just whether or not they work at the end of the day; and if anyone has an experience with the bikes they produce at all.
