Another local German builder is Tannenwald.  They explained to me that they like to work with steel and combine the newest technologies, such as 44mm head tubes and through axels, with old school design.  Their design and paintwork were impressive and the combination of Tune parts (they come from the forest next door to Tune’s) really accentuated their European-ism.  Their bikes were the only ones I saw that used 3T forks.
