We need 2 threads - ceased to exist & shadows of their former selves.

Was Gripshift a company in its own right? I always thought it was just a trademark of SRAM.

Either way both are SRAM now.

I Suppose Avid is the same, then.

I guess I was trying to distinguish between brands/companies that no longer exist versus ones that have merely been "borged".

Hence I don't count Avid, Truvative, Zipp and Rockshox.

You are right on Gripshift - consider it withdrawn.

Oh yeah, nice one. Is Mr Crud still in charge or did he sell out?
