Sugar Bear mentioned that to me a few weeks ago. It just goes to show that if you were on TV don't mean your gonna make it. Best of luck to them.

Was just reading that in Cycle Source tonight. Never had experience with them, but it sucks to see anything cycle related go down.

I was pretty bummed to hear the news of them closing but it was kinda bound to happen since that Gary dude who did basically 95% of the work passed away.

Oh that's why. I didn't know that Gary died. Wow. He did seem a bit high strung. Was it his heart?

Hyper tension and the economy will be weeding a bunch of people out I'm afraid if things don't straighten out soon. That and people getting shot during bank robberies.
