    Yes, have had a big ‘rationalisation’ of their range, and some of the more interesting MTBs (Fortitude, High Latitude Alfine) don’t seem to have survived.

    I notice that their one and only (?) foray into full suspension has gone too. Move over Grapil, here comes a Fat Bike instead.

    Good job I bought one just in time 🙂

    There aren’t many other options out there for “continent crushers”.

    Brilliant bikes but they didn’t sell nearly enough to justify their existence. The single front ring and rigid specific geometry was a step too far for some people.

    Love mine to bits, to the point that if I ever kill it I’ll probably be finding a custom frame builder to make me another one exactly like it, only in 853.

    I see it’s gone from their website. I thought it was selling reasonably well, perhaps needed a couple of updates (ie rear disk brake mounts inside the rear triangle), but didn’t expect it to get dropped.

    I got one last week, glad I did!

    I admit I think the race was a bit pointless, but the adventure and ss were bang on for do it all/low maintenance/winter bikes.

    They’re a great bike (love our demo) for the right person, but it’s just not sold enough for them to justify keeping it in the range.

    There’s still a few bikes/frames left with Genesis, we can work out a sweeeet deal on those I’m sure.
