    So... being ignorant of Procycle and all...

    Since they've had a hand in Rocky since '97... what does this really mean? Will it be as bad as when Brunswick bought 'Goose, or Pacific GT, or no?

    Rocky Mountain was always allowed to act on it's own interest but now, with procycle combining procycle and Rocky Mountain, it could wind up being the beginning of the end. Procycle did the same thing with Balfa if I remember, and 2004 is the last year balfas are going to be made. How much longer until this happens to Rocky Mountain; don't know.

    way to jump to conclusions.
    Procycle has been the owner for years the only difference is that the other ProCycle brands will be under Rocky's roof now.

    Considering pacific is THE largest bicycle company worldwide, i don't really see them buying GT as a bad thing. This year's GT's are FINALLY competitively speced for the pricepoints with other brands. In 15 years I've never seen GT this well matched to the competitors. Also there's the fact that pacific themselves were bought out by a montreal, PQ area investment group just last winter, its only gonna mean more capital for the divisions down the road.

    Oh, if you're of the opinion that pacific doesn't know how to build a good frame, look at Banshees sometime. ALL their frames are made by pacific in taiwan, in their ISO 9002 certified plants (and banshee even leaves the factory decals on the frames... doesn't paint over or try to hide the true manufacturer as so many brands do).
