Interesting.   The cassettes seem like a good idea but the chains leave me wary.  Any idiot with a cnc machine can make a cassette but chains require dedicated equipment afaik.

 

 

 

 

TAYA produce in Taiwan afaik.  So exactly in what does this differ from the usual:  buy from a producer in the far east at rock-bottom prices, order some boxes with a nice logo, pack the chains in the UK -or wherever- spin a marketing / local production / supply continuity story, apply a hefty premium and sell on?
