Thanks hambini. Very interesting results. Yes, that is real data.
We need more of these tests from independent sources. It is the only way for us to have an actual insight into frame manufacturing and not just fall into whatever the big brands or some magazines want us to believe...

As Hambini confirms:
A. Controlling the production 100% equals higher quality
A. In house manufacturing and not subcontracting equals higher quality
B. Companies who make carbon frames and components in-house for many, many years have a more advanced know-how

Bravo to Time and Look that still keep that high standards

That means Giant and Merida have the potential to make great frames.
