What’s behind all this?
“Born in the Black Forest…“ can be taken literally by all means! But it won’t start with the birth. Naturally it begins all with the generation – fortunately also the generation takes place in the famous halls of TUNE!
Let’s begin with our developers: Every single staff member is included because all of them are infected by the bike-virus: Singlespeeder, Trialer, Downhiller, Trail biker, All-Mountain-Pilots, Cross-Country- and Marathon-Racers and road-racers – the variety is enormous and for this reason the ideas-pool as well.
Two constructors bring the best ideas on the screen. And by the help of massive computer performance and even more brainpower the procedure goes on to the prototype construction on our CNC-machine…
…and at this point we talk about “Born in the Black Forest…“
Wich materials are used for?
Whipped cream, cherries, bicuit and Black Forest Kirsch are the ingredients of one of the most popular Black Forest specialities – our goodies consist of aluminium, steel, ceramic, carbon and finest titanium!
What is produced in our halls?
The question would be easier to answer when it came to wich of the parts are NOT produced by ourselves: Incidentally we confess that neither of us can sew or knit a T-Shirt, wheel-bag or socks…
E. g. the complete hub or stem-assortment is milled by our CNC-machines. The Titan-axles and the carbon- and aluminium-parts getting assembled to quickreleases and our wheel-sets are built up by hand at our house in any imaginable rim- spoke- and hub-modification!
Wich production engineerings are used?
Aluminium-products are milled at our CNC-machine.
We have a barrel finishing machine on our hand. It looks like a washing machine wich deburr and polish our aluminium-parts by the help of little ceramicparticles.
After anodising the parts getting labeled in our own labeling-division by laser-gravure.
Carbon fiber parts like our saddle “Komm-Vor“ are laminated by hand and baked by our carbon-oven! (To blight the roumors, particularly we indict that there was never baked a Black Forest gateau – there are other specialists for it…)
