Trying to think of a few manufacturers that are no longer around, off the top of my head

Fat Chance
Grove Innovations
Brave


As well as a few others which are only around in name rather than spirit

Onza
Mountain Goat (not sure on these new frames yet)
Ibis
Klein
Bontrager


I'm sure there are 100s more...

Mike,

What's up with the disdain for Machine Tech...this is the second or third inferred negativity I've seen from you. One of the CNC laborers date your sister? :P

never liked the look of machine tech stuff. the stems were espically appalingly ugly. I sold some gifted machine tech cantis ages ago. Fairly well made, just waaay ugly again.

no offense to any machine tech lovers, just not my cuppa T ;)
