Everything at Mad Fiber is up for auction. Intellectual property, copyrights, parts...

How about we all get together for the ultimate group buy?

You have heard how to make a small fortune in the bike business, haven't you? Start with a large one.

Interesting. I just read Leonard Zinn's gravel vs road article this morning where he mentions he twice put his rear derailleur into Mad Fiber spokes because the spokes flex outward on hard turns. Lawsuits/expensive warranty claims maybe?

They are selling the equipment as one bid, ip separately. I wonder if the brand is now too tarnished.

Personally, I thought the approach looked promising and most reviews were positive.
