Hello,

It seems that old bike manufacturing companies sometimes fade away with time... whatever happened to spoke manufacturers such as Torrington (England) and Robergel (?Germany?)

Were either acquired by current current bike spoke manufacturers such as DT Swiss or Wheelsmith?

Thanks, Steve Neago
