Pedantic much?
"making" as in they now offer frames in their product line.
There is a high likelihood they are producing them in house as well, although I would like to be corrected by someone more knowledgable on the inner workings of Schmolke.

Given your inability to answer, I would hardly call that the height of pedanticism.

Hi Guys,
Just got back from Friedrichshafen.
This was our second year together with Schmolke and THM and the reception from the press, public and fellow frame manufactures to our ultralight frame was amazing. Marcus Storck came by and bid us welcome to the industry, Gerhard Vroomen stopped to wish us well and proved to be remarkably well informed about our little project, etc, etc.

To the point of the Schmolke frame above I can say that the posts and bars are made and engineered in Konstanz Germany just an hour away from the show and the frames are made and engineered far, far away from the Messe. Stefan is and always has been very open about this.

Thought you might find this interesting: Ryde (formerly Rigida) is showing their Ryde RC1 aluminium rim at Eurobike. The rim weighs only 355 grams and looks really nice. The new Notubes ZTR Alpha 340?..

The only thing I could find for the RC1s are their full wheel builds, nothing about a rim by itself... www.ryde-rigida.de/wheels/race/caratrc1.htm
But I am intrigued, especially since the Alpha 340's have gone up in weight.

Is that really a Time? I'm used to seeing "TIME" plastered all over the place, with some of them much larger than the puny "TIME" in this picture.

Can not believe no one has posted about the LOOK 695 aero frame!

Yet for some reason they didn't integrate this into their TT bike?

Because they didn't made it yet?

Probably they want to get as many votes as possible (on their site..) and then they'll make the product that get the most votes ;)..

That LOOK looks great. Too bad they're still doing the ISP scheme.
