I'm sorta stoked. I've been running the sram only drivetrain for aboots 2 years now. A lot of people are really starting to see the advantage it has especially for trials.

Although I hope Sram doesn't try to mess with Avid too much. They are sitting very high right now.

i think they had planned on letting avid stay fairly independant in terms of product development and stuff. i guess avid was outgrowing its owner's shell- they were having trouble keeping up with their growth for a bit. maybe now they will have the production resources they will need to continue growing and keep on rockin in the free world... wait that was a song nevermind.

i guess everything pretty much stays the same, just sram will act as a parent company and their name will be on the taxes at the end of the year... sram seems to be doing well (relatively speaking) with rock shox. they have turned a dump ass shite company with a horrible line of forks into a decent company with a shite line forks in a short period of time.

Maybe now Sram would quit making their horrible brakes, which basically is just their stickers on the cheapest taiwanese made brakes out of a cataloge.

hrm, hopefully it's for the better. i haven't had too much experiance with sram, but have had some sweet ones with avid. maybe they'll give avid more funding for new ideas?
