At this point, the old Maeda-SunTour had disappeared, and a new company, SR SunTour, had taken over. SR SunTour maintained two offices in Japan for R & D and for Japanese sales. Taiwan Sakae Ringyo used the SunTour brand name because it had better recognition. Taiwan Sakae Ringyo was a Taiwan component maker, like Falcon, Joy Tech, Long Yi, or SunRace.
SR SunTour owned the name "SunTour" but they did not own SunTour's patents, intellectual property, or the rights to any of the pre-1995 designs. Various people tried to buy the tooling for SunTour Superbe Pro components, but Mori sold the tooling for scrap
