+ 1 Seems to me they are starting to spread themselves a bit to thin. Better to stick to the product lines they do well and do them well including having actual stock.

Hey Guys,

Glad to see you have picked up on our new bike range - these are just prototypes and we will have the production run in a few months.

Regarding stock - what was it that has been out of stock?

Apart from the Sleeping bags and Sleeping mats that we have been re-developing and are not out of stock - they just simply don't exist right now.

Depends if you expect a company to hold loads of stock for items that might not get bought (at their cost) or if you can live with 'made to order' and wait a little while.

Did you say you were looking for a small female to test ride a perfect Ti HT 29er at endurance events and bivvy nights for you?

You didn't?

Ah, well, consider me if you do, eh?  ;)
