Wow, what a shame. I have always loved their cranks and have gone through four pairs and had a couple of warranty calls with them. Real shame.

Leaves the door wide open for the Hope offering though...

I have used a lot of their components over the years and I would miss having them as a known quantity. Surely it is possible that they may be bought out by a quality firm?
