Hi I have returned to MTBing after some time away in the wilderness that is windsurfing.
What has happened to the bling brand Syncross - it seems to have dissapeared.

Cool
Thanks for that. It just seems that they don't have much of a UK presence anymore. :)

I think Syncros is owned by Ritchey now, not quite the same :cry:

Yeah, all the old-school companies that are still about - Hope, Ringle, Syncros - just don't seem to have that "thing" about them anymore...

I'd lend them some of my Yo's "thing", but it keeps oozing it into the carpet... ;)

I had a set of Sun/Ringle wheels a few years ago, and they sucked! The hub was terrible. Nothing left over that made the Bubbas great.

Also, has anyone noticed the Syncros and Ringle stems on Ebay US that just look like regular old alloy parts with stickers thrown on?

I need to check my history on this but I believe syncros was tied in with the demise of GT a few years back. ... ameybrook you're right, syncros & ringle are now appaling OEM tat :(
