CR Gang- I sent this email out recently, but got no takers. This is in regards to the Italian "F.B." Company, maker of hubs and other? I checked the CR website, but found photos of the hubs but nothing else. Anybody out there who can help me? Cheers, Dave in MT

********************************************************************** Hello CR Listers:
   I recall some side comment a couple years ago that "F.B." Company sold off their bicycle parts division to GNUTTI, but stayed around to make motorcycle parts. Was that just wishfull guessing? I don't know if this question is off-topic, but I was wondering, did the "F.B." company make motorcycle parts as well, and is the company still in existance? And what the heck does F.B. stand for anyway? please let me know off-list, if this is off-topic. Thanks in advance. Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT
