Burley: Undergoing Change

If you've visited bikes@vienna then you've seen the many Burley products we have in the store. We have enjoyed selling their tandems, recumbents, and trailers. As of last Friday Burley changed ownership and closed down their bicycle lines. They will not be manufacturing tandems, recumbents, commuter bikes, and road bikes any more this year. There is no indication if they will manufacture bicycles in the future (after the 2007 model year). Burley indicates that the focus will be on trailers.

We'll continue to carry Burley trailers. Their trailers are well made. I wish them well in their efforts to keep their business operating. They have initiated change to save the business and now we will have to initiate change to adjust to Burley's shift.

It is rarely dull here at bikes@vienna.
