    What's the status of Giatex?

    From the looks of these photos (scroll down), it appears that Giatex was at the Taipei Cycle Show:

    But the Giatex web site suggests that they've shuttered their doors:

    No exactly sure about Giatex, but the following site has something almost identical.

    I've seen lots of these around Toronto, would never buy one... I think they were being sold in china town for $99 a pop... I thought it was a rather funny design...
