    Haha, you missed some good stuff (in a very morbid way). They ran themselves into the ground and went bankrupt owing millions to their creditors. The Iron Horse that is "coming soon" is a different company since Dorel (owner of Cannondale, GT, and others) bought the name after the bankruptcy. Anyway, they had a huge number of warranty claims for at least one model, mismanaged that situation, stopped paying suppliers and patent licences, got caught doing insider deals with family members who ran a certain online bike store, and more stuff that I can't remember
