SETTLE Cycles closed. Does anyone know why?

They had a fair mail order business and good prices, I thought. What went wrong?

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

Like they have gone out of business. And Jim, who I once spoke to there when I ordered tyres, is now out of a job!

They seem to have been bought out (the old settle cycles, settle) and then turned into an e-bay only shop with a different name. There were a few threads on CTC forums I think.
