Brick Lane Bikes: Vigorelli Stem Jan 27, 2011


Hrm. This looks familiar. As a matter of fact, so do these. I know the LDG parts were out months before the BLB parts but I thought these were all machined in Cali? I’m so confused.

  • yup

    why take the time and effort to make a quality product when you can just pay someone else to make a crappier version and sell it for more?

  • josh

    LDG and BLB just rebranded these stems, nothing LDG or BLB is doing is original…

  • aarn

    this seems really strange to me. why make the exact same products as someone else? did LDG rebrand?

  • max

    Taiwan is a hell of a place.

  • prolly

    I’ll dig up the email but I’m pretty sure LDG said in their PR that they made these in Cali and designed them in-house…

    Welcome to the world of OEM.

    at least their track ends aren’t total knock offs…!?
    well maybe they are inspired by something else…

    it’s ridiculous! they even supply Paul Components then rip their stuff off.

    Dont want to knock livery but the carbon bottom brackets on their site look like rebranded tokens

    I am working with company at Taiwan who made it. BTW a few frames by LDG look like as it was made by the same company too.
