Bruno Touring bike?

Anyone own or know anything about this bike? Other than what can be deduced from looking at the web page.

Never heard of it.
From what I see on the web page,
I wouldn't give it a second thought.

Stem shifters? lol. Easy enough to get any bike painted that colour and set up with creme tires if you want.

I found their catalogue and it's made with reynolds 520... basic parts, might as well buy a BD bike.

haha, yeah I guess the Swiss don't have a big market in the States... they make good utility knives though... and good pastries. I'm still interested (no intention of buying this bike) in foreign touring bikes, so if anyone has a list of the components, please post.

If you want a foreign bike start with Thorn Cycles in the UK.
If you are looking at origin of manufacture, then pretty much all the touring bikes marketed are "foreign"

I'm interested in information about all touring bikes regardless of make, model and year! Don't write a bike off so easily.

I was thinking of getting some Taiwanese steel the BG BLT someday in the future. From what I've heard and read about BG, he seems like a great guy and a wonderful artist. I really have no preference where the bike comes from as long as its a good quality bike. I will probably get an LHT because that's more in my price range (checking eBay everyday).

Maybe someday... 20 years or so from now I will buy a Rivendell Atlantis (drools).
