Does anyone know if there's any truth to this?

I heard, yesterday from the recumbent guy at my LBS that Vision Recumbents may be going out of business. Anyone know if this is true or not? Has anyone heard? If they are going out of business, why?

They did move, and there has been some kind of screw up with the phone company when they did. So if you tried to call all you got was a number out of service message.

Where did they move to? By that I mean are they still in Seattle, or did they move to a differant city? Or did they move to an entirely differant state?
