Colorado Cyclist gone ?

Maybe I missed something ?.

The site - coloradocyclist.com yields a missing company.

Curious,

Anyhow, hopefully it's just a glitch rebooting the server.

When I comparison shop, CC is always at or near the high end of pricing. I remember them for the female models they used in their catalog a decade or so ago.

hit the web site at 2:15am pdt sunday 6.17.18 and it was there but much lesser than it used to be. seems most everything is on clearance and there's a tenth of the selection there used to be.
bought out/sold out/chapter 11'd/downsized/whatever. a shell of its former self.

I bought a Tommasini from them in about 1990. I called them, had them mail me a catalog, perused the huge catalog to find what I wanted, called them, talked to an employee in Colorado who knew a lot about the bikes and what would work for me and ordered the frame. I remember that he could tell I was a kid and was really excited for me. It cost me $725 in lawnmowing money. Everything about the process is now obsolete. I hate to be an old guy, but those were the days.

Comes up for me. I bought a custom rear wheel from them in December. Good purchase experience and the wheel has been flawless so far.

Bikes: A few older US made Cannondales, a modern Soma Saga (no longer made, alas!), and one gifted crabon Specialized. Never enough.

If I recall correctly, their print catalogs (and Boulder Cyclist?) of 20+ years ago were just drool worthy. Don’t recall any models(!), but sure paid attention to those Bob Jackson frames. Reynolds 853...

In my drinking days of the 1990's, I would sit on the couch at night and pour over their catalog while drinking a 6 pack. Mail ordered lots of stuff from them.

Yeah, their catalog was AWESOME. They carried a lot of the more obscure but cool high end European stuff (Ochsner frames, ITM stems, Modolo brakes, FiR rims, Ofmega hubs, Stronglight cranks). Most of those brands are either gone or produced by some larger company these days.
