I also thought Rino, including the cranks, RD and pedals I own, are Italian. But I see several complete Rino bikes on various websites, claimed to be Canadian. Is it possible the Rino frames were actually built in Canada, then equipped with the Italian components?

BTW, I don't know if I reemeber correctly, but didn't Rino for a year or two equip one of the major RAAM contenders, Lon Haldeman perhaps?
