    Adding an archived products section to our website

    I know a few folks on here have asked that we make info on old models readily available, so we've created an archived products section on our website.

    Airborne Bicycles. Archived (old) Airborne Models

    It's rather simple but I don't think it needs to be too involved. We've got the old Guardian 1.0 info up there right now as a test. The plan is to make a PDF for each old model just like the Guardian so that folks can access info on their bike if they have questions like fork-type, angles, TT length, etc.

    What do you guys think?

    Half serious suggestion: call them 'legacy' models rather than 'old' models?? Has a more positive connotation.

    Appreciate all the help I can get! I'm just really a bike bum masquerading as a product manager masquerading as a marketing guy.

    No I don't work in marketing. I just visit a lot of web sites.

    I think that this is a really good idea. Was thinking about how much it would help those researching a pre-owned bike.

    And keep owners of older bikes connected to the brand through visibility on the website.

    This is an awesome idea, and it could help us owners of older models sell our bikes!

    As somebody who saved screenshots of the Green Goblin specs while that page was still up I like having archived products available.

    Damn, I was hoping to compare my Sortie's angles vs what they are now.

    I think you're mistaken Jeremy. The page says "Airborne" products, not Huffy bikes.

    I think it is a great idea, noticed that the Zeppelin Elite info is in a "coming soon" status, is there any update as to when it might be available? - Thanks

    Just google the address on the boxes that your bikes were shipped in if the sordid history of the company isn't already known.

    "sordid"? Seriously?

    We've never hidden the fact that we are owned by a larger parent company. You aren't bringing anything new to the table; sorry to burst your bubble.

    I am guessing absolutely nothing, bacoes is simply a sad little troll. Either that or he is really dumb enough to think that Diamondback and Huffy are affiliated somehow.

    It's amazing how much doesn't change in ten years.

    If you're the same Jeremy I used to work with, you've become almost as slimy as Jamie.

    I had no idea that the Airborne story wasn't known.

    When a company says "They're back", where are they back from? Are they back to being Chinese titanium? Doesn't look like it. Are they back to being Huffy's flagship brand like they used to be? I guess so...

    Glad I got a Flyte out of there.
