I know rule is any frame made in Taiwan but would like to see some bikes originally born in Taiwan like Giant, Anlen, Pacyfic, Cycletech etc. That's what I understand by meaning "made in Taiwan".

A obvious American/European brand, design and engineering but bikes welded in Taiwan does not convince me to vote for.

I hear what you're saying but my take is a little different. I see this month as a good opportunity to counter some of the snobbery around far east manufacture and show off some really nice, well made (in taiwan) bikes.

Don't get me wrong, I like all bikes without particular preferences, and because is such a broad category in special BoTM I'm just trying to narrow a bit. Otherwise I'll be struggle to pick anything as usual in regular month :)

Ii'm really far for being a specialist of Orange, but if your bike is titanium made, it would be sandvik weld :D

It's funny : it's a taiwan special, and still no "Giant" or "Wheeler" shown :lol:

The weather was reasonable today, so I took some new pics. That means I can enter my bike after all.

Sbike moved production to Taiwan at the end of 1992, so my 1993 Sbike 503 is Taiwanese.
