Marino Bikes Announces Sell Off Of Sick Bicycles Frames

by 3

The long and complicated saga of Sick Bicycles continues, with Marino Bikes, Sick’s Peruvian manufacturer posting this announcement on its Facebook page:

Sick Marino
Looks like Marino is trying to recoup costs.

Marino previously posted that it had made the frames for Sick Bicycles and the delay was due to non-payment rather than manufacturing or shipping problems, although that post was subsequently deleted.

In recent weeks there has been much speculation as to the financial status of Sick Bicycles and whether existing orders will be met. There are reports that those who have paid via PayPal have found themselves ‘timed out’ by the refunds process, while others have had more luck with claiming refunds via their credit card companies.

We’ve been in contact with Marino Bikes and we will be getting an updated report very soon, (allowing for time differences). We’ll also ask Sick Bikes for comment too.

In the meantime, Marino’s Facebook page is here.

Watch this space.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Seems like Sick just Suck.

    On the upside though it sounds like you weren’t the only one whose emails they weren’t replying to Hannah so at least you know it wasn’t personal or anything.

    Intrigued to see what happens at Malvern this year!
