Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Mavic for sale

Anyone want to buy Mavic, as in the whole company? The owner wants to dump it. No idea what the price would be.

Sorry, you need to be a paying member of this site to make a "for sale" post, and put it in the proper forum.

Balance sheet has got to look bad, what with the potential of a lot of R-Sys lawsuits on the liability side. I'd trade them a pair of Aksiums for the keys to the company.

UH Scott? relax I do not think he actually owns Mavic and is selling it he is just posting the news.

I figure Shimano will buy it they will simply take over the bicycle world as we know it.

it appears from the press release that the 'parent' company is no longer getting fat off cyclist and no longer has use for us.

I suspect Dorel will pick them up, so we can see R-SYS equipped Mongoose Pavers at walmart.
right next to Chinese Cannondale.

I heard they had a deal, but it detonated on the last lap.

"In a press release issued by Amer Sports, and released on the Helsinki stock exchange, the Finnish company said it was considering strategic alternatives to focus its business portfolio on categories where the best group-wide synergies can be achieved."

In layman speak: We need to get rid of this sucka before we get our ass sued off!

It may also be that they don't make a ton of money through OEM sales, and who really walks into an LBS and buys a set of Mavics anymore? Lots of competition out there, lots of online options too.

Srsly, I think Mavic has tanked because no one really understands how to pronounce the company name.
