Interesting news from Atomlab Bikes

Wandered over to the AtomLab bikes site today to find this message. Seems that they're discontinuing a few of their products, namely frames and cranks, to focus on pedals, bars, stems and wheels. It sounds like they grew quickly and are trying to curb overhead and poor turnaround in favor of service.

  Atomlab has had a pretty cool line for a while. They had a prototype hydraulic brake and even an upside-down dirt jumping fork a year or so ago:


So, as some companies grow at the expense of quality and craftsmanship, others are focusing on how to keep riders happy and making bombproof products. Hopefully this works out for them, because their produts are pretty cool!
