It is hardly gossip. They are, in fact, in bankruptcy. There are many articles about this in Bicycle Retailer And Industry News (BRAIN). Yes, they are great bikes (except for the cracking MKIII rear triangles), but only a fool would count on a warranty from RSC (the only IH dealer) being worth much in the future. Just look at the facts as reported in the press, and what I am saying will be pretty obvious.dogonfr said::lol: Kinda depends on who you gossip with. The forums sound like it's all over yet a few people I know refuse to admit this and are still railin trail hard on IH and supporting them. If the IH is what your looking at go fer it as long as your happy!! If you look around most will say theirs are the best until they find something new.
Bottom line I't all comes down to you. :rockon:
Sorry, I had Pacific Cycle, which is the one you are describing (=Dorel) and Pacific Cycles confused. You are correct.JimC. said:Dorel Industries markets the low end "genuine aircraft aluminium" wonders as well as the higher end stuff like CDale and such. And both ends of the Mongoose spectrum.
Unless I misunderstood your comment, not sure.
back to top In 2004, Dorel became one of the largest marketers of recreational products in North America with its acquisition of Pacific Cycle, a leader in the design, marketing and distribution of high quality branded bicycles and other recreational products. In February 2008, Dorel purchased the Cannondale Bicycle Company and SUGOI Performance Apparel, further solidifying its presence in the bicycle industry.
The Recreational/Leisure segment comprises two distinct operating divisions: The Cannondale Sports Group division which deals specifically with the Independent Bicycle Dealers (IBD) channel; and the Pacific Cycle division which deals with the mass merchant and sporting goods channel.
Dorel markets its Recreational/Leisure products under the Cannondale, Schwinn, GT, Mongoose, SUGOI, Pacific, Dyno, RoadMaster, PowerLite and InSTEP brand names. Please click on the logos below for more information on the products available under each brand.
