    No more Ironhorse???

    I have a Maverick, a Warrior, and a Yakuza in the family and wanted to add a Sunday or 7point to the collection next. I have been reading online that IH shutdown

    Is this true!?!? Details?

    search this thread for something like "this is how it ended" for fun reading
    P.S. RS is back under different names...

    I have not been on bike forums ever so that may explain it. Never cared for much bike talk but I asked the guys at the Performance Bike where I got our bikes and they were unable to tell me anything but that they don't carry IH anymore.

    Really sucks. Ironhorse is pretty much all my brother and I have ever ridden. Hope to see bikes make a comeback in a form other than walmart bikes.

    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Dont let that stop your purchase dude. there are plenty of good IH deals out there right now. If you get a DW link bike, as long as the linkage isnt worn out you should be fine. The bearings are cheap and easy to come by so they arent an issue. I still ride my Warrior, ojiki, and Kumichu. Ive never had an issue with the single pivot bikes, and dont think I ever will. If youre looking to upgrade to a similar bike, try Airborne bikes. They use the same SP frames from IH and they have some good prices. Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info guys. I would still very much like to get another IH. If I do, before I start beating on it I'll put my engineering student skills to work and build a CAD model from all the dimensions so I can maybe try to reproduce parts for myself if I break it.

    Thanks for the link. Still does not have what I need though. I need the pivot sleeve that the sachem, warrior and yakuza use.
