    I know Trophys are constructed in England.  Out of curiosity, does anyone know where the various components are sourced from?   :187:  I'm thinking electronics, brakes, etc.

    As with any major manufacturer you will find the parts are globally sourced with many components coming from all over the place.

    Next time you take yours apart for a service just take a look at all the parts. The country of manufacture is labelled on most of them.

    It's such a magical bike I believe it is constructed in the deep, dark woods by Elve's and Fairy's.

    I'm so happy with mine and I live close enough to ride past the factory if I want too where it emerged from, after the Elve's and Fairy's worked their magic.
