Many people may not have heard of MDE bikes
before, but this is all set to change now that riderruncompany.co.uk
(distributors of rider owned clothing labels such as Vandal and Rogue) have just secured an exclusive deal to import the Italian company's products into the UK. Much like their new UK distributor, MDE bikes is a rider owned company with its roots firmly embedded in mountain biking. Their range is extensive, from tough street and dirt-orientated hardtails, to lightweight xc full suspension designs and dedicated downhill rigs.Put simply, they have a frame design to suit virtually every type of rider, and these are certainly not your average "made in Taiwan" knock-offs. All their frames are hand made in their own HQ in Alpignano, Torino so that the entire manufacturing process can be closely monitored, and they also sponsor several talented riders to strenuously test each product before its release. To quote the company's founder Federico, "Perfection is our target."
All frames are available with a huge choice of colours in either a tough
powder coated finish as standard or anodized finish for a small extra fee.
I should also mention that they also produce high quality components as
well, ranging from pedals to bashguards, all of which look suitably
bomb-proof and show the same attention to detail as their frames.
