The new ‘Factory’ frame has been designed at home in the UK and hand built in Taiwan by ORA, one of the World’s very best steel mountain bike frame manufacturing facilities.

The move to Taiwan was a considered one. As a frame builder, aerospace engineer and designer, Joe made the decision after visiting the factory and seeing first-hand the high quality of manufacturing, work ethics and working conditions.

ORA’s factory is the perfect setup for hand-crafting the new frames with expert engineers, boasting years of experience in building top-quality mountain bikes.

If you’d prefer a hand-built, made-in-the-UK Starling frame with custom geometry you can get in touch here.
