While the filing is unfortunate, there appears to be a good chance that the bicycle division
will survive and continue in the same direction. Management will be kept in place as to
bicycles. The division was/is profitable. So unless the new owners decide to sell out to yet
another company, Cannondale could be around and not go the way of Schwinn and GT. Lets hope so.
IMO, they've got an excellent product.
