Like I said earlier in the thread the company that made the T5GB is not associated with cycling in any way.
I stand corrected, thanks for clearing that up. FWIW companies that don't have a history of frame building can still make some pretty cool stuff, New Zealand's had bits and (possibly) frames made by companies with composite experience, but whose main focus is not bikes, this company made the Zen bikes NZ used before the Avantis were being used by the Kiwis.

I bought a previous track frame from a local masters sprinter because he had bought himself a Zen frame and disc wheel in 2009, which I suppose is another point of difference to UKSI. The current disc wheels NZ use are made by a company that specialised in sailing equipment. All seem to hold up ok.
