    I think now they are Flyte. I guess they decided to go from a pretty bad name for a bike to a horrible one.

    Click on the Customer Support, some explanations are there.

    Airborne was bought by Huffy several years ago. Huffy filed for bankruptcy last year. The original owners of Airborne, who still run it, are not able to use the name after september. They will be running under Flyte, and changing thier line of products - looks like aluminium & carbon fiber now.

    Unfortunately, anything bought under Airborne has warrenttee held by Echelon Sports, the owners of Huffy, so you may be out of luck there.

    Just wait till sept 30th, then anything you buy is warrentteed by Flyte.

    As always, the warrenttee is only as good as the company.

    They should stick with Ti, it's the only reason anybody buys any of their stuff. Glad I got my airborne ti seatpost while I could, it's almost identical to a moots post but less than half the price.

    From their euro web site:
    "For warranty cases that are no longer covered by Echelon Sport Products (Licensee Airborne U.S.), Airborne Europe will gladly take over these warranty cases from the U.S. to keep on offering the trust in Airborne we have worked on so hard. Shipping cost will have to be covered by the customer. The same counts for crash replacements."

    At least its something.

    You might want to check EBay. A month or two ago, Airborne was having a fire sale on some of their stuff via Ebay. I picked up one of the carbon CX forks for $100.
