There’s a long and a short story, so I’ll keep it short.

Which bike component (not frame) manufacturers actually make their products in the UK?

Uberbike (‘Made in Sheffield’ range)
Superstar Components (‘Made in UK’ range)
Royce - hubs, BB
Hope Tech - hubs, brakes, rotors, cranks
Carder Tech - pedals, seatpost clamp
Burgtech (?)
Works Components
Pace - steel frame sets
Renthal (?)
Middleburn / BETD Goldtech
U.S.E - carbon & dropper seatposts,
Brooks
Clarks (Made overseas)
Unite co. (Made overseas)
Pembree - pedals & seatpost clamp
Carbon Wasp - XC frame, cranks, aero bars

Please add (or correct) any of the above. I’m really looking for hub, rim and crank manufacturers for a project build just now.

Aren't Hope rims made out East?

Gotta admit that I do and would only support by buying some of those you've listed.

Supershite can kiss goodbye to any of my monies lol. Then again they never appeared to want my monies in first place of trying to order a set of wheels by contacting them.
Got distinct impression I was hassling them for asking a basic query regarding axle adaptors.

Pmsl

Superstar Components? My experience has been very positive. Helpful service, when asking for something bespoke or about plans for Microspline hubs and product quality appears to be on a par with Hope. I’d use them again.

If Hope rims are made out east, then I’ll be looking elsewhere. But where?

Specifically on cranks:

Unite’s are made in the UK, but appear to force you towards SRAM chainrings. Am I correct on this?

DMR’s are not UK manufactured and force you to use their own BB (Praxis which are US).

Hope Tech I believe are made in the UK.

Middleburn are UK made (I still have a pair from 1992 on Pace RC200).

Is there anyone else that I’ve missed?

Hi mate,

Pembre pedals are made %100 in UK and brilliant quality.

What do you think about Uberbike pedals? I have a downhill bike and I am in between Uberbike pedals (1 year guarantee )and Nukeproof Pro Downhill pedals (2yrs guarantee)

I think uber bike might get stuff made in China...their expensive finned rotors are an exact copy of ones sold by various brands under different names on Ali express for less than half the price...I thought I would try them and they were total crap so immediately purchased a set of Maguras...Night and day.

O+

Renthal MTB bars are made overseas. To my knowledge, only their moto stuff is made in the UK.

I had a bloody hunch this might be the case

Please tell me their mtb rings are made here?

Mine arrived today and they look/feel great. Quite light, decent size platform and a good concave above the axle.

Can’t comment on how grippy they are (but the new star pins announced today look like an improvement) or how well they last as they are not on a bike yet.

They have a ‘Made in Sheffield’ range but that’s only some of their products. No idea where the rest are made.

Got their brake pads on one bike and have been an improvement (over the stock, worn ones so not really a good comparison).

Thanks, I’ll add that to the list.

They do look good and have clearly stated their eco-credentials, and are similarly priced to others.

However, the bearings come from Germany…

But almost three times the price of Uberbikes…

I’m not disputing as I’ve no idea, but why make bars for one discipline in UK and another overseas? Seems a rather odd way to do business.

What about the rest of their products?

Probably because the moto stuff is alloy and it's easy to bend and weld tube and probably more cost effective. Carbon is a whole different ball game and is more cost effective to get outsourced.
