Catalogue bikes from China / Taiwan painted with a logo some bloke in Noosa (near Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia) came up with and spoken about as if the frames are their own design.

Don't look bad and probably ride ok, though.

Open Mould?

If so, which model is the Esquire?

Yes, open mould.

I have no idea what model is what, but there is no way that the "mammas & pappas" bike shop that the company is based out of can afford this many (or probably even one) of their own moulds.

The Johnson Cavalier is the Hongfu HF-FM069.
The Johnson Esquire SL is the Hongfu HF-FM066.
The Johnson Esquire SL Disc is the Hongfu HF-FM166.
The Johnson Riddler AR is the Hongfu HF-FM169.

I could not find what Johnson sells as their Riddler MKII yet, perhaps someone else has an idea?

I quite like Johnsons paintjobs. But I would not pay 1500 EUR for them. (That is about the difference between their price and the naked frame from Hongfu).

From their site - this is about their wheels - but makes no sense - wh wouldn't they use rebadged chinese wheels?

"We purchase the carbon in single strands fibres, then weave the carbon fibre strands with a patented 280 degree resin - exclusive to our factory."

I'd guess that is taken straight from the same Chinese catalogue that they buy from. If Johnson had their own carbon weave capability, they would be *much* better known.
