Some great bikes in the early years but always put the £ first.
(I have a Sorcerer and its nice)
i think that is a bit harsh!
i think the bikes were reasonable up to about 1992 then i think they started to drop off in many ways, the mtb boom was booming and they did without a shadow of a doubt try to cash in but then so did others at the time, the problem was i think they tried to cut too many corners, which again i feel others did aswel.
each time the brand was sold initially it seemed like the owners wanted to do it properly but then decided after a year that it wasn't worth the hassle/effort.
i seem to remember they did have a bit of a comeback in the late 90's when i sold them at a shop, and they sold well and were nice quality steel bikes, that said the last time i sold them was when they had dropped off in quality massively which was around 2000/2001, but we only took a couple of models to fill in gaps in other ranges price points, but they were mainly hybrid bikes and the PDI checks we did before they went out was more like a strip and rebuild! i had to remove the BB's, grease them and reassemble them, same with the hubs aswel as tensioning the spokes, once that was done the rest was normal, if you didn't do this then it was likely the bike would be back with issues within a few weeks riding.
i love my courier comp though
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
