Yes Rikulau is actually welded by ORA.cadence90 wrote:You certainly have done your research. I cannot speak to any of those companies from direct experience (but have heard that Rikulau are fine), and I would also be surprised if you find enough reviews regarding J&L frames to really affect your decision one way or another.addictR1 wrote: ↑Tue Jun 25, 2019 7:24 amYea I was thinking the same. I have my reserves. Another one is motobecane Ti.. it’s made by ORA in Taiwan which I know does a great job in welding Ti. They even make for another company in Taiwan called Rikulau.
But price range wise J&L is much cheaper... just haven’t seen anyone review about it.
So, the best you can probably do in terms of gathering information is to ask J&L all the questions you can, see how well/expertly they reply, and then trust your instincts from there. If they do not reply in detail. move on. It's certainly never a bargain if the tubing/welding/algnment/etc/etc is of lesser quality. Good luck.
Thanks for the tip... I’ll chat with J&L and see.
