Fastolfe posted this video on BROL…very interesting…I run a lot of Schwalbe tires and Schwalbe USA HQ is located in Victoria, BC, Canada!  Makes me appreciate what goes into my bike tires.

I posted this video about how Rohloffs are made a while back, but in case you missed it they make a fun double header for the bike tech geek…=-)

Interesting stuff Vik. Neat to see the relationship between parent company and production company portrayed. Thanks for the post.

Thanks for sharing this video. Very interesting to learn more about how these tires and tubes are made. There is much more involved than I had imagined.
