    What happened to Underground Bike Works & John Parker?
    Underground Bike Works / John Parker hit the ground running with a booth at this years Sea Otter Classic, and Missy Giove representing their frames. A Kickstarter campaign was underway to get the first batch of frames sold, and the future looked promising for the Yeti founder.

    But now the Kickstarter campaign has been cancelled, and there hasn't been any news as to why. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...und-bike-works

    Anybody have info regarding John, UBW and their venture to making bikes again?
