I'm sorry, I was not specific enough. I was referring to BH as a whole selling a lot of midlevel carbon bikes in Europe, not that the G4 was one of them.the Inbred said:BH USA is half-owned by Chris Cocalis, founder of Titus and Pivot.
BH was the first company to utilize integrated seatposts, and the G4 is one of 3 or 4 bikes currently produced using Carbon Nanotube Technology.
The G4 is a pretty damn light frame, and I have a hard time believing it's a midlevel frame in Europe. The Connect, maybe.
I have a G4 in my spare bedroom right now that I'm riding again tomorrow. Initial impressions are that it is a very nimble, comfortable frame. 55.5 frame, Ultegra pedals, a D/A kit, and 1550gr wheelset bring the bike to a total of 16.5lbs.
Giant were the first company to produce bikes with an ISP. BH started making them (and their frames became very similar-looking to Giant frames) when one of their engineers moved to them from Giant.the Inbred said:BH was the first company to utilize integrated seatposts
BH bicycles are made in Taiwan or China (depends on the frame) and finished in the country of stated origin, just like almost every other high end European branded frame. Same as Orbea, Pinarello, LaPierre, Bianchi, ect ect. European bicycle subcontracters lack the ability to produce a cutting edge monocoque carbon frame.racing replica said:I
Regarding where BH frames are made, my frame has a made in Spain sticker under BB.
