I worked in a Trek dealer some years ago and I remember seeing the same stuff that was Titec, branded as Bontrager, including the Titec 118 bar side by side with the other's branding.
A few years ago, perhaps 2004 or so, Titec had a big shakeup when the bigwigs in Japan (I always thought they were Taiwanese) came over and told everyone they were fired, take a severance package or don't get one at all.
Didn't see their products on the market for some time after, and still really don't see much more than the low to mid end stuff. I have always trusted their stems and bars, but never liked their seatposts. I bent a couple of them and the thumbwheel on the two bolt clamp was nice at a pricepoint, but barely functional.
Forgot the Pluto saddle I got last year. Lasted two rides until the rails bent to hell. I had a comparable one in the past that was a private label Velo and lasted through three bikes.
