The way I read it is that the forks go to DT (and become DT in name from 2008) but Pace keep on making frames and clothes...?

Rubbish.

Oh dear :(

Frames and whatever else they do wont sustain them. They'll be disappearing shortly for sure.

I can't agree that they're selling out.
The guys behind the company have been at it for a hell of a long time and probably want to enjoy a well deserved 'working retirement'. It's easy to call someone a sell out when it's not your money/business/work, life balance in question.
