If you haven’t read this somewhere else already, Dorel which owns Pacific Cycle (GT, Mongoose, Schwinn and Cannondale) has just purchased Iron Horse for the tiny sum of USD$5.2 million. This is definitely a good thing as the other main bidder was Iron Horse founder Cliff Weidberg’s son Randall Scott, who some speculate is the main reason Iron Horse filed for bankruptcy in the first place. Only question locally is will Auckland based distributor W H Worrralls pick up yet another bike brand or will Aussie based Gemini (Mongoose) add it to their stable. Full story here.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
