I dont think they are the same company who are making the folding bikes??
My old bike was near enough the same as the early 90's Ritcheys and Bontragers!??

So, probably it's not same brand as Yours...
1993 catalogue says it is factory from Asia (probobly Taiwan) They made frames for some brands (fex for Cycletech), and also signed some by their name
Here You've 3 models (unfortunately there's no hard tail, FS bikes was new in 93, so they presented them first)

Nope, the little slopes, ridden them many a time in my life BiTD. I had even forgotten you're from round these part in your past.

Wonder what they are like now. May have to go for a ride in that direction.

careful - they banned bikes on the Westwood about 10 years ago! did you ever go down the infamous Kamikaze near Burton Bushes?
