Am trying to find out more about my bike - who makes it, materials, processes, other models, road tests, reviews etc.
It is a year 2000 model Monoq MC2, a compact type Al frame with some seriously shaped tubes. It comes with a full carbon aero fork (incl steerer), carbon seatstays, carbon aero seatpost and carbon stem. All are in house branded but the quality of the carbon work is better than anything I've seen on other bikes. It is light too, with Campag Veloce, Spinergy R1 wheels, ITM bar, Trans Am saddle it weighs in at just on 8,5kg.
Anybody out there know anything ?
Cheers
Drew

It's a Taiwanese frame built with locally sourced components, all made in the east by TBM and related suppliers. Basically a marketing company speccing a bike from available suppliers and selling them worldwide. Our local Shimano importer also imports them and has had a lot of success. I've not ridden one, but close inspection reveals a well-made bike. A mate rides one and loves it.
